I like my incredibleand android 2.2 absolutely rocks. I don't want a huge screen because I like to slip it in my pocket, and, well, I don't want someone to think I am unnecessarily excited to see them. Plus with an 8mp camera, that takes surprisingly good pictures, it just works so much better.

Scott, I'm sure people would just think you have a big phone in your pocket. You're old. :eek:uttahere:

I don't think there is much of any difference between the Incredible and the x except for a small difference in screen size. I've always been a windows guy till I saw your incredible in Phoenix. Verizon needs to send you a spiff check.

So after ordering 2 different cases supposedly made especially for the Droid X, only to discover after they have been delivered the Droid X does not fit in either, I went out to Best Buy today and bought a Case Logic camera case, water resistant (can't go swimming with it apparently), and the Droid X fits perfectly and secured, with a heavy duty belt loop.

$12.00. Bought 3, one for my sales guy, one for me for working, one for riding my bike.



I'll probably will invest in a couple OtterBox Defender's once they are available.
 
I got a hard case that fit into the holster. It was nice but I have the docking station for my truck and home. You need to remove the hard case to ddo that so I took it back and bought the case from the Verizoon store

I was just looking at the X's.. they are friggin HUGE. It's an awesome phone, but dang, they are bringing back the Zack Morris phones.

Just wait. The new thin screens they have in Japan that fold over, then open back up without a crease will be the next thing. You'll have a phone about the size of a checkbook that opens up to a screen almost as big as an IPAD.

Funny enough I helped make your phones...

At my full time job I helped make chips in your phones.But, mine is the best it isn't no "smart phone" its a Samsung Rugby Military spec. phone.I have droped it 40+ times (not on purpose of course)and it still works great.I have even heard it will ring in antifreeze and still works like brand new..

Well, it's been over a month now. The battery only lasted 3/4 of a day at first. After a few cycles it would last about a day and a half. The battery was my only complaint. After the 2.2 update I can say I've been on the phone about 2 hrs today, gps ran ALL day with the screen on during navigation for at least 3 hrs and I still have 3 out of 4 bars of battery left. (It's now 7:20 pm)

JUST AWESOME!

Today I found that the phone automatically syncs with my private google places. We were doing sales calls on PM's today and all I had to do was pull up the Las Vegas map, click on my PM file and they all show up as dots on the map. I simply punch on the closest one, click on Navigate and head that way. The navigation is cool because when you get to your destination it automatically displays the google street view of your destination so you know you're at the right address.

Once there you can click on "share" and then email the name and address of the company to yourself along with any notes from that sales call for filing later at home. You can also save the customer as a contact right there on the spot and put in the names of the decision makers.

Using GMAIL you can automatically schedule a followup sales call. That gives us a permanent record with redundant backup because we can
a) search the calendar for the company and find out when we went there and what happened
b) search the gmail for the customer and pull up all emails sorted by date.
c) use our scribbled notes as a third backup.

I can't believe what this phone can do.

So far I'm only disappointed that I cant use the HDMI cable to show Powerpoint presentations (I hear that's coming with an update later)
and I'm disappointed that the google maps gps won't "optimize" trips. I'm sure someone will fix that too.

I have the HTC Evo 4g. I don't mind that its big. I actually like the screen size and use it for showing before & after on sales calls.

Well, I couldn't take it anymore and ordered the Droid X today. I know Verizon is supposed to get the Iphone in January, but the X was just too tempting.

Have any of you got it?


Testing the Droid now....motorola. So far not as easy to operate but I wont let that stop me. Email is a bit different, no texting or emailing while actually on the phone. So we have to disconnect then send and call back. Thats a bit of a pain....

Calls are not dropped so thats a plus.

You can get much longer battery life if you turn off push notifications and set up the email to log in only when you check it.
