are you getting the X because you want people to drool and gawk over your phone?

    im not gonna like, this was part of the reason i took back my DINC. i wanted the new hotness, and the size and build of the X is definitely gonna turn heads. cant wait to pull this puppy out and have people ask questions about it.:D

    No. I'm doing this because I really want the functionality of the phone for business and personal multitasking. Any drooling from onlookers is a bonus!

    No, that's what cars and houses are for. ;)

    I'm getting one because my upgrade is due, it's the hottest Android phone to date, the 4.3" screen, Google Maps GPS + Car Dock, OMAP processor, I could go on and on...

    Not entirely, but bragging rights will certainly be a plus!
    My friend has been annoying the hell outta me with her iCrap 4 and I can't wait to show off my X and put her iPhone to shame.

    LOL people did that with my former incredible. But after having that, i'd rather have overall functionality which i'm sure the X will deliver.

    I work at an I.T Department for a large chemical plant here in south texas, there are 4 Android device owners (3 droids, 1 eris) and 5 iPhail 4 users! I've already put my OC'd droid running BBv0.4 P3 1.0ghz against their iPhails and fair pretty well. The FUNNY thing is that where I live AND work, THERE IS NO AT&T 3G coverage at ALL! LOLOL! I make fun of them everyday for buying a 3g phone with no 3g coverage here at ALL!!! Its like buying a ferrari, and only driving it 30mph =/

    Anyways, I've already won the Droid X vs. Iphone 4 battles in every area except screen resolution but I often make fun of them for not knowing WTF a Retina display is and having it on a small screen.

    I can't wait to bring my Droid X in and let it decimate their phones, especially when 2.2 comes out :D

    This will be the first phone I have bought myself (other than the freebies with contracts). I always end up getting someones hand me down and when my bro got his DINC I was impressed. No one believes I will pay $200 for this phone but by god I was the first to preorder at BB.

    I have pre-ordered mine at BB because I'm currently on AT&T and after comparing the phones that Verizon offers, I really feel this is the one that gives me everything that I want and more. The Incredible is amazing but the Droid X seems far more impressive IMO

    I just want it because it looks awesome and i need a bigger screen to make it easier to see and watch things on it. Drooling people is always a plus lol

    I am getting a Droid X because after waiting 4+ weeks for the Dinc, the salesperson got my oder confused with someone else's and canceled it. He admitted his error but it put me back in the 4-6 week wait queue for the Dinc so I ordered a Droid X instead.

    I would never go watch a Twilight movie period, let alone wait in line to watch it. Might as well go wait in an iFail 4 line with the other zombies instead lol.

    Just kidding, but I am 28 with a wife and two kids, so I guess my priorities are different. ;)

    ...so I can drool over a device that finally utilizes every penny of my (until now) overpriced data plan. Paying $30 plus taxes for data on a device (Storm) that can't even surf the web efficiently was pushing my buttons! Hello X!

    My NE2 early upgrade started in March and I was about the jump on the Dinc for $49 (corporate discount) when the strong rumors about the Shawdow/X became reality. This will be my first personal smartphone.

    I'm getting mine because with my big mitts, bigger is very definitely better. Others drooling over the phone will be a side benefit, but will only last until the next gotta-have-it phone makes its appearance a few more months down the road. And to anyone expecting iPhone fans to drool over the X: Ain't gonna happen. Apple chauvinism is a very powerful phenomenon.

    Nope I didnt want a X so people can drool all over it. I wanted an X because by trade Im an IT Administrator and us IT guys gotta have the latest and greatest technology. Who can argue that the X isnt the greatest and latest technology out there, well maybe in Japan they can lol.
