    Damn. Never fails with Android. Always have an obsolete phone within a month of getting it. :O

    I don't know why Verizon/HTC would drop this phone, I think it's awesome. Hopefully it's just Walmart wanting to carry just the one flagship phone and not both.

    Other than a slightly larger battery, there's nothing in the One that makes me wish I could have it. DNA certainly holds its own.

    I hope this won't stop us from getting any Android updates.

    That said I wouldn't be too worried. From what I've seen, Walmart doesn't really have a big selection of phones, so it's not surprising they would discontinue one phone when the next one comes out.

    I thought about rooting, but my phone downloaded the OTA as soon as I powered the phone on and connected to WiFi. I didn't do any research about the OTA being non rootable. I'm waiting for a cure...

    Hopefully you aren't being sarcastic. It sucks not being able to root.

    I'm not lol.. If I couldn't root I'd probably try to sell the phone and get something else. I hate not having control over my own possessions.

    Ehhh my phone is not rooted, and I still love it. Not a game killer in my opinion.

    Now they are reporting that Verizon isn't getting the One, so I wonder if Walmart still plans on retiring the DNA.

    I would choose the Droid DNA over the HTC One in a direct competition tomorrow. Sense 5 will come to the DNA this summer, I am confident. And the soft touch back/red accents are amazing vs. the aluminum feel. The DNA is just a sexy ass telephone.

    As far as rooting is concerned: I used to root on my OG Droid phones, but only for overclocking and custom launchers (also free apps I suppose). With the DNA, the phone is so damn fast overclocking would be marginal, the launcher is perfectly fine to me (no lagging issues, looks pretty nice). Coming from a tinkerer, I simply do not see the need to root on a modern phone like the DNA. Besides... ain't nobody got time for that! I am too busy trying to finish a Master's degree and get PAID. But that's a whole nother story...

    So is ir out in the US yet as surprisingly its already out in ireland. 500 euro unlocked and with no contract so the nexus 4 is still a good bit cheaper. I already have 2 friends who got the ONE and they love it.
