    VZW Moto Droid X to be announced on Wednesday

    Now this throws a wrench in my plans to get the HTC DI. On one hand the Droid X is going to be huge like the EVO 4G so I don't doubt the battery life might be crap, but then again it's not going to have 4G and it's running some form of MotoBlur with inline battery profiles.

    If I pre-order it though on Wednesday (assuming they will allow you to when they announce it) I'd basically be beta testing the damn thing, and not so sure I'd want to do that.

    But the big on screen keyboard might allow for easier on screen text messaging due to a bigger screen...plus it comes pre-installed with Swype.

    And of course it's not rooted yet, so that means no free WiFi tethering.

    Hmmm...what to do what to do...

    I have the Droid Incredible now and absolutely love the phone, that being said I will most likely pre-order the X at full retail.
    If you don't pre-order the X it will be become backordered as other hot new android phones.

    I'm totally stoked about tomorrow. VZW knows it's coming out but they are mum on when I can preorder it. VZW is going to give me an early upgrade (bumping my upgrade date up about 10 months) so I'm definitely getting this. If I don't like it I will just return it or sell it on eBay.

    Counting down the hours to be honest. I made a cardboard cut out of the dimensions just to make sure it fits in all my jeans etc.

    The new phones look nice. I have a Droid running 2.2 @ 800Mhz, and have the WiFi teather set up for my iPad use. The larger 4.3" screen is a want, but I can hold out for a while.

    It's not like when I had a LG Voyager waiting for a Droid....that was painful.

    Yeah I am just a tech junkie I guess, I have to try out this phone...I got the Droid thinking I would rather have the hardware keyboard, but I get sick of sliding it out during extending back and forth text messaging.

    I have my Droid running at 1.25GHz right now, but it's still not as snappy as say an HTC Droid Incredible or most likely the Droid X

    1.25Ghz

    I never use the slide out keyboard, it's pretty useless to me. Keys are too flat to get a good feel for the layout.
