    Have an HTC Incredible going back to the store. I'l like the better processor, graphics, larger battery, larger screen, etc. The Inc has the non-responsive screen grounding issues and thus will be refunded. I THOUGHT there would be a ton of accessories for the incredible, but not. What Will the Droid X and 2 work with existing droid 1 accessories, car docks, desktop docks, etc? I know covers won't work. What about extended batteries?

    There will be a 1950Mha I believe, extended battery abailable, and it will only make the Droid x 1millimeter thicker. So this battery could be worth it and make the phone outlast the Iphone 4.

    I wont be putting a case on this baby, it will make it to big. Plus I hear the build quality is amazing and I have dropped my droid on the cement twice and all that happened was a few knicks in the metal.

    It will not work with original droid accesories. The phones are a completely different shape and size, plus a multimedia dock and car dock have been announced for the Droid X. given everything we know about all three phones, the X is the clear winner to me.

    I'm very interested in getting the desk dock and the leather case that also turns into a stand.

    I'll also be getting the desk clock. It looks really nice and the price was actually lower than I had expected.

    Car and desk clock for me. Then the extended battery that will still fit those docks. Probably a stick on skin as a case will make the large phone even larger.

    I hope they figured out a way to have the docks work with a case on or with a high capacity battery. I hate that my Droid can't do that.

    Yep the only down side to these (or most for that matter) accessories is that they are made for devices with no cases. :thinking:

    It would be easy to make it work for multiple devices. Put in a removable insert that has the contour of the phone, phone and 1-5 popular cases. Just put in the right tray. You see this on a lot of Ipod docks! Fits nano, 2G etc. Simple and easy, but can't figure out why they cannot do this.

    Definitely like that idea, but don't want a huge phone to be even larger. I'm coming from an Inc and like to keep it small. Novel idea and if integrated into the phone like EVO, really sweet. I just watched Iron Man 2 will resting against a cup of water. Kickstand would have been nice.

    No way am I getting a case to make this monster bigger. A Screen protector? YES

    I laid my Inc with silicone case next to a naked EVO, the EVO was only so slightly larger. SO, if the Inc with case is close (still smaller) than the X with a skin instead of a silicone case, it should be acceptable. The 4.3 screen will make up for a lot of my hesitation with a larger phone! I cannot believe I'm going this big for a phone! Just when everything in the mobile market was going small, smaller, smallest. Now it 3.5, 3.7, 4.0, 4.3 and I have no doubt larger. When the phone goes edge to edge all screen display (not just glass like now) and stays the same size, I might go larger. Might as well use that 1/4 inch of non display on either side.

    I don't think we'll see a phone go larger than 4.3. After that that start considering them tablets :eek:

    Well there is the Dell Streak and it is like a 5 inch screen. But yeah I think you are right.

    Everyone has a personal line to draw at size. I thought the 3.7 Inc was as big as I'd like, but now the 4.3 DX is on order. Would I like a 5" sure if it was the same form factor as the DX or smaller. I'd draw the line at 4.3" for pocket-ability. Heck, I have a set of cargo pants and the "cell phone" pocket won't fit my Inc! Definitely wont fit the DX. Guess I need to buy new pants to fit my phone? ha, ha, ha what a novelty thought. Changing my wardrobe to fit my phone.
