    I am in the market for a phone and see that the droid 3 and the droid X2 may or may not be coming out soon.

    But I was wondering in general what the differences between the Droid 2 and the Droid X are? Besides the Screen size and the physical keyboard.
    Does one do anything different then the other? You guys have used them so you know better than me.

    Main reason Im wondering about the difference is that the Droid 3 has an actual keyboard which I like and want in a phone.

    Well, its the hardware keyboard and the screen size...other than those two things, the phones are identical in core components.

    Its basically the same thing with the DX2 and the D3..the X2 will not have a FFC and the D3 will...most everything else is the same...

    How good are touch keyboards on droids?

    Im using an enV touch and the touch screen on that is junk. Every 3rd monday it will open what I want it to and the rest of the time I have to guess if I need to hit above it, to left etc to icon. If it responds at all.

    My Env touch is what makes me worry about no keyboard

    I can tell you they put the Env Touch to shame.

    I have had to full touch screen phones...the Original HTC Touch on Verizon and now my Droid X...I will never have a phone with a hardware keyboard again. The keyboards add weight, bulk and more options for faulty hardware to appear. As well, the 4.3" screen on the Droid X renders the Qwerty keyboard in a larger layout than what is offered on most hardware keyboard phones, making texting/typing easier to me....

    Must admit I am finding myself in a dilema as far as do I wait for the Droid 3 or do I get an X2?

    Yeah I got fooled into buying the enV touch two years ago by a Verizon rep. I've since gotten a Droid 1. There's a big difference b/t the enV's touchscreen and any Android phone's. My D1 is harder to type on, but I blame the physical size of the thing (3.7 inches). The bigger the screen, the easier to type.

    I find it very easy to type on my droid 2 keyboard. Faster than I could on my EnV 2.

    You just can't go wrong with droid x. been on mine since oct 2010 and i absolutely love it. I too was concerned about having a physical keyboard, but i tried the x and the D2 while in the verizon store and the onscreen kb on the x was large and so very responsive that I decided within 2 minutes and I haven't regretted it. Then it gets even better when you download Smart Keyboard Pro and Handcent Messaging apps. They both have nearly unlimited options and really put their stock counterparts to shame. My X does everything I need it to do and I don't see me wanting any other phone any time soon.(and believe me, that's saying something, as I always have to have the latest and greatest)

    Recently downloaded the leaked version of Gingerbread (not rooted) and now I like it even better. they've made some nice changes, like 3 profiles (each with 7 home screens for a total of 21) and a "reply with text" feature that, when you ignore a call, opens your quick text list and you can send the ignored caller a text with 2 key strokes. my old LG enVytouch had this feature and I have missed it.

    I am curious as to where you got this "leaked" version of Gingerbread? HELP! Cause there is no way I'm rooting my phone, but anything to help it run better would be great...not that it doesn't run great already, I love it :) but you can't go wrong with EVEN BETTER!
