    long story short is i wanted the incredible hd. now its being pushed back till next year. however i got to really thinking about it and the inc hd may not be for me anyway. i will not be in a lte area for quite sometime and other than that there wont be any appreciable differences in it and the x imo.

    one reason im not sure about the x is because the end of life is scheduled for 3/11. i am an avid follower of this site and i have seen what eol does to the forums for that particular phone. i have the og droid some times only a handful of posts are made each day. also im afraid that the dev's will participation will drop.

    i take advantage of the early upgrades. so if i bought this phone i could upgrade in 11/11.

    do you guys have any suggestions?

    I only just got mine after switching (after two days) from the Incredible.

    Get it, you won't regret it.

    I have had mine since release, prior to that, I had the D1...The X is an awesome phone and I do not think you will regret getting it...In addition to the forum here, there is a sister site for just the X... www.droidxforums.com - so you can check that out too...

    Hey digdug1,

    I was in the same boat, and ordered the Dx on Friday. The problem exists that technology will continue to advance. By the time the DincHD comes out there will be another cool phone that is a few months away that you could hold off for, wait for that and hey another one would be coming up. And thus one of the conundrums of life, instant gratification now or wait for a hypothetically better situation in the future.

    More of the deciding factors for me was 3g vs LTE.... It would be cooler to have LTE, sure, but I'm still getting over my account will be costing 30 bucks more already, let alone costing more with LTE.
    That being said, it doesn't quite seem like many more 3g devices are coming out soon, and the ones that are seem to be less impressive.

    Just my two cents.

    ^^ agreed^^ i will not be getting the lte service either. which is why i probably will be getting this phone. i am waiting to see if there are any black friday sales.

    one other question though, if i get this phone now will vzw rebate me any money if the price drops within 30 days?

    I was also waiting on the Incredible HD. I gave up and bought the Droid X a few days ago and I love it so far. The only thing that scares me is the recovery after I rooted it. I feel like I will eventually brick it, lol. Not as many roms for it either. I'm running Rubix 1.6 right now and it has swype so that's pretty cool. The big screen is awesome compared to D1.

    Rubix seems like the most stable ROM out there right now. That's just my personal opinion

    Got my DX a week after launch. Wouldn't go to another phone right now. I got to mess with my cousins Incredible as well. I just like the bigger screen. Feels smoother to me too
