    I was told from a few people today that some apps that work on the Droid1 will not work on the Droid X. Any truth to this???? I have the Droid 1 and was thinking about upgrading tonight to the Droid X. Just trying to get some info before i make the jump!!! Thanks

    Certain apps won't, this is true. It depends on what apps you're talking about as to the reason why.

    It'll look the same but you'll have to check the individual app's listing to see if it says it's not compatible with the X.

    I thought the market would actually look different, since its possible to modify the build.prop and gain access to some apps.
