is there any way to make the aria feel and look like droid x?
Huh, by what means. You can download and use the droid X keyboard if you are rooted.
is it any different/better than the aria's?
and like this: http://www.verizon-phones.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/verizon-motorola-droid-phone-hands-on-1.jpg where you have the up arrow to reach the applications.
Well thats a droid 1, not an X lol and no i dont think so. You could always download launcher pro and set your applications icon as that image i suppose, but it wont pull up like a drawer.
Separate names with a comma.
