    I've pre-ordered my Samsung Galaxy SIII.
    I'd like to thank everyone on this board for all their advice in helping make a decision:
    1) Buy the Razr Maxx, or the SGS3, or the Razr HD?
    2) Keep unlimited data, or wait for the Razr HD?
    3) How do I get the best battery life out of my new phone?
    4) SGS3: Marble White or Pebble Blue? 16 or 32 GB?

    This board has been so helpful in this decision process...you've been invaluable. Thanks, I say, for all the fish!

    And so I say "so long" to the droid family...when my galaxy arrives, I'll retire my trusty Droid X. It was my first smartphone, and it did everything I ever wanted a phone/computer to do, and I was hooked from the moment I got my first notification with that "Droid" sound clip. I wanted to stay loyal to the Droid--and who knows? When the Razr HD arrives, I may still make the switch (more great advice I got on this board).

    Thanks again!

    No need to leave just because you are getting an SIII. All android devices are welocme here.

    First. Great title, love the reference big time. Second. These guys are right. While it may not be a Droid it is an Android. I got a Nexus and they let me stay :)

    But obviously its up to you in the end. Best of luck with the new device whatever you decide to do!!

    Ha! Sorry, I didn't mean that I would be leaving this board. I LOVE DroidForums! I'll still be here, putting in my two cents worth!
    No, I'm just sad that I won't be a Droid owner anymore. Android, sure. But for a year and a half, I've been driving my wife crazy with "yeah, my Droid can do this" and "oh, let's see what my Droid has to say about that"...ha ha! Priceless.

    For me also, I love the Douglas Adams reference. :biggrin:

    I have the Droid X audio files on my computer, so I will be putting some of them on my new phone, INCLUDING the DROOOIIIID notification.

    The X has been integral in my love of this OS and it has been a crazy ride.
