Im going to wait. If i get the X now there will end up being a phone twice as great coming out by Christmas. Which will be the Droid Pro.

i will definitely wait (and possibly get an htc, unless the droid pro is just amazing)
i dont see why they would even want to lock it. it does no harm if we rom and theme are phone, so they might as well just let it happen. (its not like jailbreaking an iphone so you can get cracked apps, it does no one any harm (it makes us want their phone more..))

I mean you say that now but... next year they'll have something better. And that will always be true. You just have to settle eventually. For now? Upgrading Eris > X is more than enough, and ill upgrade 2 years from now. or one... idk which. Ya know?

No X for me. My Droid makes me very happy. Now the Pro might tempt me. But, honestly, I might keep my current phone as long as possible, just because it's so damn durable.

Yea but this rapid acceleration in mobile technology that we've seen in the last 3 years is about to hit a roadblock, and the DroidPro is going to be very close to that block. The issue is a lack in progress in battery technology...it just isn't there to support hardware any more advanced than what the DroidPro can provide. Even on 45nm technology I don't think you're going to get past 2ghz for quite some time without some new battery tech. No freakin' way...

The DroidPro won't last forever, but I think it will be a super powerful phone for a much longer period of time than the typical phone at this point. There just isn't anything out there to push hardware specs past what is about to be offered.

I'd bet big money that the Pro will be around for quite a long while, much longer than we're used too anyway.

I finally decided to buy on Thursday, mostly because Froyo 2.2 (running on my droid) is fast enough for me (heck, I'm an old dude) and once I stopped at the VZW store and saw the difference in screen real estate- I was hooked despite the locked/encrypted bootloader B$ Moto/VZW is doing.
