    Exactly it's a bargain and with all we have going on with the Droid right now it still is IMHO the best Android phone out there. Sure there are phones with bigger processors but you simply can't do the same things to them that you can do with a Droid.

    I wouldn't even consider a Droid X at this time. Droid gives me everything I need. I figure I'll have it at least until September then probably look at the Droid 2 if it's out by then.

    First of all, you ot what we have, but likely for less than what we paid for it.

    Early adopter syndrome.

    It's a Droid! Enjoy it.

    No matter what you purchase, there will ALWAYS be something else coming out shortly that will give you pause, that is the nature of the beast.

    What is funny is that our Droid still commands a hefty share of users out there, that should tell you something.

    Want to switch? Go for it. But if you keep your Droid, there is more than enough things tht you can do with it, and to it to keep it very viable for the next year and a half, then you upgrade to something we haven't yet even thought of
    (Which will be the red headed stepchild of moto's 2Ghz monster and Google) :)

    Yeah don't regret it. I mean if I had the option to buy a Droid or the incredible, I'd still buy the original droid, it's better to me.

    As for droid X, idk yet. It would seem to be TO new though as right now everyones on top of things with the first Droid and it gets better and better :)

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a lower resolution, which is probably what you meant.

    The Droid is worthless. It was a great phone last week but now it's worthless. The only phone worth having is one that you can't yet get.

    I wouldn't have.

    Bought my Droid in December, already looking longingly at the new models.

    I suspect December 2010 is when I'll reenter the market for a new phone.
