    Hello, I have been up for an upgrade since january but have been waiting for next round of phones to come out.

    I am currently using an Env touch which annoys the He** out of me, touch screen never works right and it resets itself if I look at it the wrong way.

    I originally was waiting for the bionic, then the delay. Then I was gonna wait for the Iphone 5, but the fall is a long ways off.

    So now Im pondering the X2. Everyone I know with the Droid X say its a good phone. The only drawback it has to me is that it has no physical keyboard.
    Plus if I renew now I can get in before the tiered data plans come around which is next month from what I heard

    What do you guys think?
    I keep hearing it has no 4G or front camera but my area wont get 4g for a while and I am not gonna video chat or take pics of myself so the camera dont matter.

    I dont really see anything on the horizon besides the droid 3.
    Unless anyone knows of something worth waiting for?

    Any input would be appreciated

    I was in the same boat. Always waiting for the "right" device. The way i see it, no matter what you buy....something better will always be on the horizon. If you wait for the Bionic, then something better & newer will likely come out a couple months after that. Its a never ending loop.

    I wont have 4G service in my area for probably 1-2 years, so i have no need for a 4G device. Coming from an original Droid, i know im making the right choice with the X2 other than the fact that it probably will not have an unlocked bootloader. However, the dev community found a way around the original X....so we'll see! A dual core, bigger display, & a lighter weight phone are the 3 things im looking forward to.

    Best of luck with your decision!

    I'm holdin out for the droid 3, if it's going to be released after the data deadline than I'll get an x2. I see no rush as of right meow, LTE isn't yet confirmed for the 3 either.. I hope it does get it so you dx users can feel the pain of limited dev support.

    I wanna look into one but I have to go to Verizon to play around with it first... only problem is, if I like it I have to pay full price. No upgrade for me yet. :-(

    I am pretty sure I read somewhere the droid 3 will be 3g.
    If you google droid 3 and go to news section it was in there somewhere.

    Don't worry about the no physical keyboard thing. There are so many good soft keyboards for Android it won't be an issue, esp. on a 4.3" screen.

    I currently have in my possession an HTC Eris (Previously Used), OG Droid (In Use), and my Droid X (In Use). Love the Droid and Droid X. But... I'm thinking... should I just sell the OG Droid and Eris, and get an X2, and then wait, and sell the X, and get whatever newer phone I can? I'm eligible for a discounted upgrade right now. Don't get my full upgrade till October. I'm thinking, maybe I should wait a few months until a few revisions of the phone come out. I'm pretty happy with my DX. But Dual Core seems so tempting. Oy. Decisions.

    I'm kinda kicking around the same idea.. Imagine the X2 with a ROM OC'd to about 1500ghz. WOW!! :icon_ banana:
