I got 2100 out of mine 2.2 but I have some files tweaked. I dont think the leaked version is the final release I hope I can upgrade to the final ota when it comes out.

Now only if google would get a clue and run an app store like apple....

you mean closed off and totally censored? yeah, I'm pretty sure one of the main reasons people get Android phones is because its an OPEN SOURCE HANDSET not some sheltered apple crap

No i mean easy to use managed and ViEWED from a desk top oh and maybe getting the big names in games on board

You mean only being able to sync your iphone from one computer and having to connect it just to upgrade the software? Big name games? You mean the ones where we can play super nintendo, gameboy, game boy advance, nintendo, sega geneisis games for free while you have to pay for your games? Oh wow you got final fantasy...uhh yes I've been playing final fantasy 1 and 2 for free on my droid. And oh we are also getting final fantasy 7 soon too

How about battleship yahtzee bejeweled 2 etc whats wrong with syncing on desktop? U can view the app store, control what u want to sync, i have my phone n 2 touches synced to the same computer pick and choice what apps to what device I am probably getting the X but keeping iphone for games the iphone scrolls the screen and has a better user interface than the droid phones

Haha you make it seem really bad when actually its the total opposite. When he meant an App store, he most likely meant quality apps on the market. Apple definitely dominates this areas as Android's selection is very bad. The variety is horrible and the games, which many people download most, are mediocre at best. I don't want to play board games or crosswords all the time. I like the 3D gaming on the iPhone. Final Fantasy 7? You mean for the iPhone right? Because what phone will actually be able to process a game like that on there? Hawk is definitely right when it comes to big names for the App Store for Apple. All the good games are going to iPhone while nothing good is coming out for Android. There are just too many phones with different specs to support these things. The only option I see of Final Fantasy (the 3d ones, not the 2d) coming to Android is if they make possibly Android 3.0 for only high end phones that can support things like that.

the next android is called 2.3 gingerbread and that won't be out till late this year. i think lots has come out from the android market recently. and i don't play games so maybe that's why i don't care either. ha ha.

There will be a GSM version. Maybe in some months

You will never see anything named "Droid" go to another company in the U.S. Verizon, Motorola and HTC have come to an agreement with Lucas Films. So maybe there will be a Motorola..."something" that runs on Android for T-Mobile or AT&T but it will NEVER be coined as a "Droid".

You gotta be tight with Motorola to get this phone. T-mobile can't hang.

I doubt droid x will be gsm. Verizon is hyping it up to be their own exclusive phone. I can see the Droid 2 being gsm, as the Milestone 2.

HTC needs to fix whatever problem there is with the EVO. Looking at this video and seeing just how bad it is against the other phone is pissing me off. This so called CAP that they have should be explained to all the people that spent money thinking there were buying the best phone out there only to see the DROID X destroy it, and without Froyo 2.2!

HTC has been disappointing me lately, I was a die-hard fan (Had the Touch pro, touch pro 2, and imagio) until I got my Motorola Droid Nov 7th last year and I NEVER looked back. After using the Moto Droid for all this time the Eris and Incredible look and feel like toys to me now... Haven't had a chance to touch an Evo yet though.

its bad because it doesn't have dedicated graphics. i got the evo too but i'm taking it back for the droid x. destroys the evo on more then just benchmarking, the video recording is a million times better too.

I will flat out say the Droid X is everything I could ever ask for in a cell phone. Even after having the iPhone 3G, I can safely say I am much more happy with android. Droid X is sturdy, high quaility, high end, and best of all....from the best phone provider there is. I have this phone on preorder and I cannot wait.

i agree. verizon has had some really good phones as of late, but nothing clean like the iphone. i didn't get the droid because i don't like the qwert and, and eris was too weak. i returned the incredible because i hated sense ui and the pointless optical pad, but it was an awesome phone. i considered going to sprint for a second just for the evo, but the idea of paying 10 bucks a month to build a service i can't use for 6 six months dissuaded me. along came droid x and now (hoping it that it doesn't drop my signal since i'm left handed, oh wait...) i can be a less unhappy verizon customer.

So with the iPhone you would be getting the same service(unlimited calling-to any mobile phone-450 min landlines, messages-text,pic,video, navigation, and web- 3G and 4G when available and uuuuunlimited) for less than $80 a month? Just saying, the price a month for the Evo, with Sprint it just works- for me.

left handed people are either really smart or really weird. i like sense ui and i wish it was on my droid. how about you try sticking to 1 carrier for 2 years.
