Love the Droid X and Droid 2 specs, but why the button changes?

    I love my Motorola Droid. I mean it's a little sluggish at times, especially after the update to the Gallery which added way too many animations and visual effects, but it's a great phone. Does everything I need, and more :).

    I'm due for an upgrade next month and was looking to get a faster/newer phone since I'm hooked on Android, but I'm not liking the key designs of these new Android phones coming out. What is up with moving the "back" button to the center/right ? That's like Firefox and IE moving the "page back" button to the right of the address bar lol.

    Honestly I don't see the engineer's reasoning for moving the front buttons around. That's like me releasing a phone but changing the 7 and 9 keys around just to make it something new.

    Sorry, just something that annoys me :p

    Anyone else annoyed that they will probably end up hitting the menu key out of habit when browsing or exiting an app?

    Maybe that's the new standard. My Incredible has it in the same position.


    What happened to the Droid 2?

    This is something small but I agree entirely. Feels a whole lot more ergonomic on the left, at least for someone who is right handed.

    It was supposed to be announced today but there was no mention of it, only the Droid X

    I was only told today's announcement was directed towards the X. The Droid 2 isn't expected to be released until August.

    Just curious, if you Droid does everything you want and more, why upgrade?

    So you can have everything you don't yet know that you want.
