    Looking to get off of my Droid for $100. Got me a dumbphone to last me until the X is out.

    I will have the funds to throw away available by July.....I want the X, I'm gonna get the X, I'm gonna pay retail for the X and save my NE2 for the "2Ghz" phone or an LTE phone. (The "2Ghz" one might be an LTE phone for all we know. I still say its a chance we see an LTE phone from Verizon b4 next year...)

    But I cant sell my baby....its been so good to me...

    Think I'm in the boat with alot of people gonna wait few months and then purchase one so it can be put through real world testing. Plus so development can happen and can't wait to see it OC'D :)

    Loving the idea of multi-touch keyboard - then maybe i'll have less typos ;) ... I'm liking the idea of a front-face camera showin' up one of these days on a motoDroid (maybe the Pro if not the Droid 2?)

    ....what are the odds of a software update hitting first gen Droid's with multi-touch? or is that hardware a spcific thing?

    lol I meant she.....

    Just looking at the pics....yea this thing is huge. I just remembered I played with a HD2 at T Mobile recently. Width wise it wasnt a problem. I was imagining browsing the web on that thing, looking at videos, movies. For the X, length wise we shall see if its a problem.

    That video from engaget is great, it shows just how fast that phone is. Having said that, the X is blazing fast and isn't even running Froyo yet. What is the point of having the 2GHz phone later in the year? I'm not complaining but I'm just wondering what we would use the 2ghz for, do we really need a 2ghz phone? The X is extremely fast to me. I'm positive I'm giving up my droid either for the droid 2 or something faster maybe the x if it doesn't feel too big. but Even OC to 1200 these new android phones are kicking the original OC droids butts.

    Probably you were thinking the same when the 100MHz phone was out , "Why would I need a 200 Mhz phone , this is fast enough "

    I cant wait to see what the overclock will be on this puppy. I'm running my Droid @ 1100 mhz (1.1 Ghz). Stock the Droid processor is set to 550 Mhz, I can imagine that the Droid X will be overclocked to between 1.8-2.0 Ghz. It should be fast enough out of the box but ocing is the way to go :) Now if we had a 2.0 Ghz processor our phones would have more computing power than the majority of peoples laptops. Overclocking a 2.0 Ghz phone would be insanely over kill, IMO.

    Well, or OMAP is rated at 600, I think the one in the droid X is rated at 720 mhz...
