    Alright, I got the Droid 1 on launch day, November of last year! I am eligible for my upgrade in November and I am DEFINITELY sticking with an Android phone, but that is where my certainties stop! It will definitely be between either:

    Droid X
    Samsung Fascinate
    Whatever phone Moto Rolls out for the holiday (Rumored Droid Pro)
    Maybe a different Android phone not heard of yet

    What do you guys think?

    Pro's and Con's of each in your opinion? Thanks!

    yes wait until Q1 2011 or you will be kicking yourself......

    I've been sitting on an update since the Incredible was released : )

    Early next year will be a good time to update.

    I can also upgrade using my son's eligible line (he has a Boulder and is 16 years old - end of that story). But, I'm holding out until Q1 2011 also. Not sure but probably upgrading to an LTE phone, but my final decision will be after we hear what the data packages will be.

    Yes and no. They are, but the phones are being rooted anyway. The locked bootloader will be totally cracked shortly (according to Cyanogen - the main android dev).

    Even harder with Free Phone Friday. I want to hold out for the T2 (working name I know), but if the X or possibly Incredible pops up on this I don't think I can pass it up.

    i agree with the other posters, we have no idea what may be out by then, but we all know the probability is high that it will more advanced and faster than what is out now.

    Same Dilemma! Free Phone Friday--I mean...just go for the Fascinate right? It is a tough gamble. Based upon what they are offering for other carriers, I would imagine Best Buy will rotate between Blackberry, HTC and Samsung phones for the remainder of the months.
