    Is that true? If so, that's a serious flaw for me because I resize text instead of using my reading glasses, constantly. I really don't want to have to keep scrolling back and forth to read larger text. Darn. What were they thinking?

    that is true. altho i heard that if you double tap it kinda adjusts the txt but not the way that sense does it on the INC.

    You can download other browsers where pinch to zoom does resize text. I believe dolphin resizes...

    Yes, but scope does not work with Flash.... Oh yeah, neither will the X until 2.2 is released. Still, I prefer Dolphin anyway.

    That's good to hear. For some reason the resizing doesn't seem to be working for some other droid x owners.

    yes. my old eris has a special feature called text wrap. it works with pinch to zoom and was awesome. i doubt they would add it though. sounds like something you do when your making the phone...not 6 months after its been released though.

    Its a feature of HTC Sense UI, if a phone doesn't have that s/w then it won't have the text wrap feature. I think that is a patent thing.

    As long as it resizes. when using double tap. I rarely use pinch to zoom. I come from Winmo, and Opera.
