    That's almost a year. It's a lot of time for technology, nowadays. Just imagine, whatever replaces it will be better!

    Yea, I don't expect the X to all of a sudden get slow and die on us. I love the phone and it does an AWESOME job as a smartphone. It'll help me in April just as much as it helps me now.

    Original Droid reached EOL in about the same time so... this isn't surprising.

    *crosses fingers* hopefully that means we'll start seeing LTE phones in April. That is a bit earlier than verizon was planning as far as i know, but one can hope!

    No. Gingerbread is supposed to be out before the the holiday shopping season this December. The targeted release is mid-October, last I heard, with the anticipation that holiday phones will come with it pre-installed. So, the Droid X should still get Gingerbread I'd think....In due time. Gingerbread will require a minimum of 1 GHz.

    That's fine by me. Despite a 2 year contract, after you reach 1 year you qualify for an upgrade anyways. Slick way of Verizon retaining their customers. My only concern is the impending tiered data plans.

    With a 1 year contract, you can upgrade after 10 months.

    Great points....
    My rant:
    Don't laugh but it wasn't long ago I used the phone mostly to talk only. I didn't like text messages because I felt obligated to reply and typing into a 9 number keypad seemed a silly waste of time for me. I was convinced I had the best phone anywhere and for me it was. It seemed like they stopped making it a few months after I got it and I managed to get around 3 years out of it and was upset when it broke beyond repair and none new were available. It was a Motorola V9M. Ebay had them and I bought one advertised as new never used. What a load of rubbish. It had been under water, looked awful inside and had only a new looking case. Even the battery was old and the charger used and non functional. I returned it for a refund and got the Palm Pre as it was VZW's only phone that was a wifi hotspot at the time. They have had trouble selling the Pre so you pay nothing extra for the hotspot usage and I might add it works exceptionally well. I disliked the Pre as for being so capable a phone, the keyboard is tiny and very difficult for me to use properly. After the Droid X appeared I got one and turned the Pre over to my wife who loves the hotspot ability and the lipstick mirror! I am quite content with the Droid X and if they stop making them tomorrow, as you rightly said..... It will still do the same great job it does now , perhaps even better with updates.

    If I got the Dare to last me 2 years, you can damn well bet this X will do the job.

    I call bullshit. Why would they let you know that when they can't even release other minor information?

    LTE is the big reason why I think. Next year it will be all about the 4G phones....

    I don't care. As long as I can get Gingerbread rooted, I'm happy :]

    Yeah that's an eternity away. And unless they come out with an LTE version with at least 4.3 inches of screen real estate, my X ain't going anywhere.

    Wow! This was the first phone I ever got a one year contract on and it looks like I lucked out though I'm not saying I'll get rid of it. Just glad I have the option now.
