Default Specs/features wise, would it make sense for someone to forget the Inc and just wait for this?

Since there is a huge backorder around the country fro the Incredible, would it make more sense to wait for this phone to release if it's coming out this summer?

Yes it would make sense if your comfortable with the size of the phone just make sure you act fast once the X is available for order or you will be in the same boat your in now!

Wrong.

The backorder for the Droid Incredible is due to Samsung having issues producing the AMOLED screen fast enough.

Droid X does not use an AMOLED screen, but a TFT screen like the EVO.

So, it won't be backordered, at least not because of that.

Well I hope your right even though there are a number of other parts that could be having shortages.

Better to be safe then sorry and assume that stock will be plentiful...

Evo's aren't backordered, they're producing and delivering them on schedule. Demand is outstripping supply.



I think the problem is that Sprint didn't realize how popular the phone was going to be and didn't order enough initially.

For the Samsung AMOLED backorder on the Incredible, there is no supply.

I think it boils down to a size issue. I think your better bet is to wait til solid specs are released for the X. If the speculations are true and does come with a more efficient processor.. I'd say it'd be worth the wait, unless you prefer a smaller phone.
