I must be crazy...android - June 16, 2010, 11:56 AM

I've been a BB Pearl user for 2 years. My contract has been up since Feb...

Starting with the release of the Blackberry Storm 1 I've been eyeing phones from the BB Storm 2, Motorola Droid, HTC Incredible, Motorola Droid 2, and Motorola Droid X.

It seems that I've been caught up in the THRILL of getting a new phone versus the actually action of getting that phone. Kind of like how you have your bike...but you still always browse for another sweet ride even though you really don't intend to get one....

Anyways, I was excited about the HTC Incredible until I noticed the EVO on Sprint has a bigger screen...NO WAY I'M GOING TO SPRINT. So that made me wonder why Verizon wouldn't have a big screen phone...oh wait? What comes AFTER the HTC Incredible???? THE DROID X...and then the DROID 2.

And of course the newer versions CANNOT possibly have the MOST UPDATED tech on them as phones that came out before them...otherwise you can't have that begging for more syndrome...

So now I'm forced to go with

-HTC Incredible-small screen (been there done that on BB Pearl) BUT 1GHZ processor

OR

-Motorola Droid X-LARGE SCREEN but 750MHZ processor ( will I ever notice a difference if I've never had a 1GHZ phone? I don't know...but why do that when 1GHZ phones are already out???...oh yeah so HTC's next phone can have it...duh???

OR

-Motorola Droid...small screen, 1GHZ processor, Android 2.2...(wait what??? why go backwards on screen but forward on hardware...


WHY CAN'T THESE COMPANIES JUST PUT TOGETHER THE ULTIMATE DAMN PHONE AND STOP WASTING TIME??????????????????????????????????


What do you value more? Life or Image?

droid X preview.


The Moto droid has a stock 550mhz processor. Over clock it it to 800 or higher and it runs real smooth with 2.2...


Or wait a bit longer till motorola releases their 2ghz phone closer to the end of the year...

Droid X is too big to be convenient. It's damn near a mini-tablet PC.

My advice. Grab a used Iphone 3G (as much as I'm not a fan of Iphone) and just ride that out for the next year or so because if you buy new now, you'll be 2x pissed when all the new 4G/2ghz processor phones start hitting the market in the next 8 months.

I just go my HTC EVO, moved to that from a Palm Pre. I have to say I am a fan so far, the device does what I want it to do, when I want it to do it....

not an AT and T customer....I'm sticking with Verizon...and you learn to realize that YOU'LL ALWAYS be pissed (note: I dislike when people write pist...lol...gald you didn't) if you live under the fact that in a few years something new will be out...

OH duh, it just hit me...COMPUTERS are another industry where things are always changing so often...

anyways you stated the point of my post. its like you have to live for the NOW and not the LATER in the cellphone world.

And I've had a pearl for the last 2 years...I got it simply b/c I want feeling the big brick BB's...well now i'm tired of looking at a small screen so I want a big screen...and my laptop is half way working so when I'm not at work I need a mobile device for email and internet b/c I dont have anything else at home to use other than my phone....

There's ALWAYS something better coming out. If you wait until the end of the year, something better will be coming out in the spring. Wait till the spring then the fall release will be next.

It's wonderful
