    I just exchanged my droid for a new one and this works flawlessly except i noticed that when I slide out the qwerty and i tap something on the screen on the top right I hear a small clicking noise when the screen pushes against the other half of the phone. Does your screen while the qwerty is out wobble back and forth (not up and down or left to right but back and forth) if you try to wobble it back and forward with a little bit of force? this is really annoying cause when i tap something on the screen i hear a clicking noise and i feel like the slider mechanism isnt as tight as my previous one.

    whoops i dont know how this got posted twice sorry... how do i delete it?

    They can - my guess is that returns are being replaced with not so new devices - i.e. devices that have been demoed for employees before launch.

    My screen was pretty loose on my first one, So I took it back to a verizon store and had it swapped...The new one seems fine :D Although verizon didn't seem to like the fact that I wanted to trade it lol

    I experience a little yaw motion on mine when my slider is not locked in the retracted and extended positions. Just curious, what is you manufacture date? Mine is 43/09.

    I have a simliar issue as the one in the video. When I press down on the upper left corner of my droid when the slider is closed, it does make a clicking sound due to the tapping of the top half to the bottom half. Since I like my Droid and do not want to risk a bad trade in, I decided to just take an extra phantomskinz and skinned the edge where the keyboard is... no more tapping.

    Yes, but mine is in the upper left quadrant where it looks like yours is all over. I would actually prefer it be all or none. The clicking is almost like a feature if ti was consistent across the face, like clicking a button, but it is annoying when it happens only in one area. Looks like moto didnt maintain their six sigma principles.

    I really have a love hate relationship with the droid it is equally as bad as it is good. It wouldnt be so bad if I didnt see so many awesome commercials about this droid device that does more than the iphone, but doesnt even do many of the obvious basics that even an HTC android device does with an OS version 2 gens back, much less an Iphone.....
