    I am ANTI-Apple, no Iphone for me. I was a big Blackberry fan until I tried Android.

    iphone is coming first quarter of 2011 so you can bet HTC and Moto are ....(well, HTC. Moto sucks) going to have some great devices to compete.

    Wait.

    Within reason, this has always been my position too. There is always something new and great around the corner. You could wait years for the next great thing while you have no-thing at all. :)

    But I do have two requirements at the moment that are necessary: GSM and support for the new sdhc-x format cards.

    I've never had a smart phone but really like the DX and am close to buying one. So I also wondered this question, so thanks for all the discussion.
    Great summary. The DX seems plenty good for me, for at least another year or 2, even as much whizzier phones hit the market. I'm at the point where I want to buy one but I have some patience left, don't mind waiting a week or 2 (or 6 or 7!) if it means jumping in for a better price.

    So those of you who have following the market a while and are predicting a wave of beefier phones in Jan, does that typically mean "older" phones like the droid X will start enjoying Special Deals! or outright price drops? Would guess so, that's the way of tech stuff.

    Blackberry 9650 to Moto DX?

    I am wondering the same thing... I wanted a Droid Incredible but when I went to the Verizon store I started playing with the X and found out i liked it more than i thought i would and the incredible less than i thought i would. Now I am just trying to decide if I should get it now or wait for the Incredible HD. I really think I am done with Blackberry now.

    Stuff like the Fascinate and Incredible were being given away for free with new contracts over the black Friday craziness so yeah the prices on the new stuff are already rock bottom and the X will be there soon too.

    I still say that the X is a great phone. I've got mine all tricked out like I want it and everything opens instantly, video plays well, pics are great all the apps I want, LOVE the huge screen etc...

    And once again, if you are waiting for "the latest/greatest" you will be waiting forever. When you buy a piece of "new" tech it is already obsolete and the next "latest/greatest" is already being finalized for release whether that be in 3-6 months or a year. I guarantee that Moto/LG/HTC already have 2 or 4 core LTE prototypes being tested out and scheduled for release next year or 2012. Meanwhile they are still marketing the single core 3G stuff as brand new/cutting edge. So wait all you want, and keep on waiting lol.
