    Task killers are a placebo. The only task killer you need is android os and healthy use of the back button in stead of the home button.

    Never saw that article but it makes sense. No idea why they'd include a Task Manager in stock froyo if it does no good. Oh well. Thanks for the link!

    Just look at the dealbreakers and decide for yourself. Half of us love X other half love 2. Bottom line, if you base your decision on what someone else tells you, you'll probably end up disappointed.

    After having my droid X for two months and still using my Droid as a wifi device, I find my self using the keyboard less and less on the droid. Its now down to about 25% physical keyboard usage.

    I got the d2g first and took it back for the droid x.

    You say you wont root it and rom it but after a while that lagging moto blurr interface will get to you and you'll want to change it. Stick with the X. The user base and developer community is outstanding. Do a little research, learn the lingo, turn your droid x into the powerhouse it can be. Overclock it to 1.2 ghz or higher after rooting. Some people can even achieve 1.45 ghz without problems.

    Based on the fact your 15 and keep reiterating that you want a keyboard I'm assuming all you want to do it text people, thus go with the global, it's more kid-friendly...leave the advanced devices to us adults. ;-P

    My wife has an X. Bigger screen. No keyboard. I have the Droid 2 G. smaller screen... but I was sold on keyboard. If there was an X with a physical keyboard I would have gotten that.
