    Hi,
    I am looking for a little bit of assistance in grabbing a new phone, my BBS is really starting to die and I have hated it for more then a year just haven't wanted to actually purchase a new phone. I have decided to go towards a Droid but cannot find one that actually fully meets my needs.
    My requirements are: Snapdragon Processor 1.0ghz or faster
    Screen 3.2" and greater, preferably a 3.7"
    Keyboard: Preferred to have none
    Camera: Default 5pixel is fine.
    OS: Preferably 2.2 but 2.1 is fine if there is an easy way to crack for manual updates.
    The Samsung Vibrant whatever it's called for Verizon looked great but not being able to change from Bing to Google or anything else is a deal breaker as well as it freezing at random times (can't deal with that anymore).
    I am fine with waiting until Jan etc if need be as I would rather not get one of the last generation
    Thanks any help is greatly appreciated.

    The Incredible, the X, the 2 and the Fascinate are all good options.

    You don't want a keyboard so the 2 is out.

    Incredible and X have great cameras.

    X and Fascinate had 720p video recording.

    Most likely Inc and X have 2.2 preinstalled but Fascinate is a 2.1 as of right now.

    I would hit a VZW store and play with them if you can. You'll get the feel for which you like pretty quick.

    Left a S2 and got the DX.
    Would not get the Fascinate. Not enough internal memory. That is solved with 2.2 or a third party app. The motorola is easy to root to do tethering and such.

    Go for the X, or at least go play with one.

    In all honesty I would wait to see what new phones come out at the end of November. The X is nice and all but new phones are coming out. You might see something that catches your eye at the end of this month.

    I came from a BB as well and once I hit the Android platform....I never looked back :)

    Good Luck to you!
