    I have a really strong feeling that this phone is not going to sell very well. It seems that the loyalists don't want it, and when comparing it to the latest release from VZW the only advantage is the phys keyboard and there are more than a few disadvantages it has to the DX, smaller screen, camera's not as good and it's fatter overall.

    Moto and VZW is making a huge mistake releasing these so close together, they had to know that one of them would end up being a bust and it's looking like it will be the D2.

    i agree, I couldn't figure out why they would release them so close together either and I do think "the bust" is gonna be the D2. Honestly I'd never heard of the the D2 till I saw it on this website. They have done nothing to advertise it. I read that VZW said they would come out with 4 Droid phones this year and my guess is that too stick to that promise they are just throwing that phone out there. The X and whatever it'll be a Christmas time (always when they come out with new stuff) will be the big sellers. Like I said I don't think the "average Joe" even knows the D2 exists.

    The Droid 1 is EOL and people keep saying they want a "Droid". If they see Droid 2 they're going to assume better and nab it. The media push around the Droid X clearly defines it as a different phone, whereas so far all the media (what little there has been, admittedly) seems to indicate the Droid 2 is a refinement if the Droid 1 -- which has been the best-selling android phone to date.

    Do the math. The Droid 2 won't be as big as the Droid 1, but it will still be big. Since this is a good thing for the Android OS and Motorola, I welcome the phone. I just don't want any on me at the moment. :D

    Why the Fascinate over the Droid2?

    I have an upgrade that I can use but I think I'll wait. I like the idea of a faster processor (I'M ALL ABOUT SPEED) but there is not much change between the D1 and the D2 except the ability to run android 3.0 when it comes out. I'd rather hold out for a LTE Droid with a keyboard, more than 1 Gig of RAM and at least a 1.5 GHz processor and possibly a higher resolution screen 720p any one. Although the Fascinate looks good, I like the Sprint version better with a slide-out keyboard.

But knowing that gingerbread is coming and that my droid probably wont get it and i wont be able to upgrade until like may of 2012... :( Watch by the time I upgrade then I'll end up buying another on the way out device and screw myself again.

    You are Not screwed. The droid still has life. The only reason it is on its way out is because motorola, HTC and verizon are greedy with the growing popularity of Android, and are pushing out the Android devices knowing that people will buy one out of contract or upgrade early to get the latest and greatest device. They are also trying to make way for those newer devices. This is starting to remind me of the computer industry new CPU and GPU two months after you get the BEST available. LOL. Oh wait these are tiny computers, well almost.
    Like i said i have an upgrade that i can use but only because i used my moms line to get my droid when it came out. If i use it then i will be spending $200 more to get a new phone that i want but don't need. I still haven't pushed the droid to its limits and there are so many roms to try. I have been holding off on using that upgrade on the droid X. Going to Wait.

    Google has gone on record as saying Gingerbread is not impossible for the droid. We will have to do the hardest thing of all all...

    Wait. :)
