    Gonna add to my twitter right now. Watching closely and I'm sure that the forum will light up as soon as all the drivers break through. So glad to be on a phone that devs care about. :)

    Droid X beats iPhone 4 battery life except in web browsing. The iPhone 4 is just way better at battery life while web browsing than every Android phone out there for some reason.

    I don't think I've been this excited in awhile. CM on the X would be a kick in the balls for Motorola.

    They have done a ton of test on laptops and everything and keeping flash uninstalled can increase battery life over 30%
