    I've had my Moto Droid since just after the release and since rooting and ROMing in January, I'm really becoming more obsessed. Cyanogen has had a huge affect (for the better!) on my Android experience. Just curious what phone you guys think has the biggest developer community. (I'm obviously going with DROID ;)). I'd love to also hear the opinions of those with multiple Android phone experiences.

    I can't really say which has the best, but the Eris has a healthy developer community. Some dev's are going above and beyond, and are actually porting 2.2 unofficially to the phone.

    Yeah, I try to make an effort to check out the other Root Subforums for other phones to see what's going on. I guess my favorite part is some of the names for the other ROMs and recoveries.

    It saddens me that the Captivate didn't even make the list....and for good reason I presume

    I imagine the Samsungs will be well supported. I guess it's just a little soon to know. I'm glad there's at least one new phone on Verizon that isn't locked down like the new Motos.

    I think it probably is the Nexus One

    BUT

    ACER LIQUID should make the list. Currently the #3 most discussed Android device on MoDaCo forums (behind T-Mobile Pulse and HTC Hero).

    Despite the fact that Acer's kernels are not completely open sourced (not knowledgeable about this, just read it somewhere). Though we have a brilliant kernel mastermind. Him plus some great developers, we have:
    -CM6/ASOP (proximity sensor/camera still being worked on)
    -FroYo FRF91 (proximity sensor still being worked on)
    -
