    The only thing I'm thinking about is when the X2's dual-core processor is overclocked to 1.5Ghz like the Zoom or Galaxy S II, how blazing fast will it be...that may be it's saving grace over the regular X and worth picking it up. From what I've read lately the dual-core's are running comfortably at 1.5Ghz's, and super fast. I just want really nice speed looking up websites and super fast response from the touchscreen really. Overclocked to 1.5Ghz should do that. lol

    I'm thinking overclocked 1.5Ghz and with a stripped down Rom built for speed, the X2 would be BLAZING. It may be worth buying it...I'm sure it'll be done shortly after it's release and all the people saying they would never buy it will be thinking second thoughts. I'm positve over 3000 in the quadrant would be happening, and then people would be changing their tunes. lol

    Haha!! Well I'm saying 1.5Ghz theoretically because of the zoom and galaxy S II being overclocked to that number. I assume the X2 would be also. Let's hope JRummy can work his overclocking magic on the X2 like he did the X!! dancedroid

    I disagree. FFC is a very good seller for people like me who are in the military and often leave families for extended periods of time. Granted, I can't take it to the desert, but for 2-3 week temporary travels within the U.S. it's perfect and doesn't tie me to my laptop when I want to skype and see the kids.

    or in my case keep your 32g.

    I am feeling rather confident that I am getting the X2. I have said multiple times that I am waiting for the D3 but with the recent change in my situation with VZW (Droid 2 had issues....was replaced with D2G...I hate it....complained and they are sending my an X) I get to have some one on one time with an X. If I like it (which I will know very quickly) I imagine I will snag the X2 upon release....hell....if I don't like it I can use my second upgrade for the D3 in September.

    Sorry about the awkward formatting but I couldn't resituate the PR release. Saw this on a site, maybe Engadget. Looks pretty official.
    Do I really want to order this puppy sight unseen and not tested. Does this Tegra thing work and work consistently? Or should I wait and let others be there first and field test it. Will I run the risk of it being so great that it is backordered into infinity? To X2 or not to X2?

    I have an X already, so the size or form factor wont be an issue for me. I'm sitting on an upgrade but dont know if I will even be with Verizon by the summertime.

    I need to get definite info on a couple more phones on Verizon and AT&T...

    The X2 keeps all the things that makes the X a good phone IMO: reception with the dual antennas, video recording audio, noise cancellation mic, and the camera was decent on the X. If the battery life is similar to the X many ppl will be pleased with the X2. Add to this dual core, better gpu, screen? ( dont really know, keep hearing things about Pentile Matrix which is one thing I didnt like about Amoled, S Amoled screens...and something that Samsung fixed with S Amoled +) hoping n praying it has a real HDMI mirror...

    Yea ppl should be pleased with this phone. I am also one who is waiting for LTE, FFC or in my case HSPA+ or whatever its called on AT&T. FFC not so much but I wanna try out LTE.

    They're available for download on your new phone for free. They are linked to your google account not your phone.
