Droid X in stores

Here's a sight to make everyone happy -- Motorola Droid X's are beginning to show up in some Verizon stores, ready for tomorrow's big rush.  Android Central forums user NVR2ND shows us a few, noting that another 50 are on their way to that store.  Seeing them on the shelves already is a good sign, we'll keep our fingers crossed that everyone who wants or needs one of these guys gets the hook-up tomorrow!

listen people come on here to talk about android. not troll the site. so if you dont have nothing constructive about Android to say THEN DON'T SAY IT. keep it up and i can bet you wont be on here too much longer. i can't stand online punks.

Retrokid223 says:

yet u fail to believe that the droid x is just as good without having custom roms. not every android phone has to have custom roms because it would make android in general look bad against other makers. and stop trolling on the site if u feel that bad that the droid x is locked. every phone from now from the makers of HTC and motorola will be locked so DEAL WITH IT!!!!!

YOU DONT WORRY ABOUT EXPANDING.ANDROID IS AN OS THAT WILL SOON BE ON TOP LOOKING DOWN.THE [X] IS A NICE PHONE SOME PEOPLE JUST LIKE ROOT FOR CHANGE WHEN THEY WISH.

Stang68 says:

ROOTING IS STUPID.

LET ME WRITE IN ALL CAPS!

borgey401 says:

rooting is not stupid at all, if you rooted your phone before you would not be saying this because it simply opens a lot more doors for you. i dont get whats so stupid about having more choices. i will still get this phone because i already have rooted eris,droid,incredible all 3 of them i can hack as i please.

Why are you YELLING in every post? Are you off your meds?

scoobyjc says:

First off I'd like to say Death to trolls. That being said I'm a soon to be reformed BB addict, thanks Android. Hope I can get one of these tomorrow. When I went to Best buy to preorder one of these a week or two ago they told me they had stopped preorders on the X yet they still had there sign up for preorders. Wish me luck.

We'll see what happens once the App Inventor doors open up. I started a new forum at www.appinventorforums.com to build a community dedicated to it.

borgey401 says:

I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU PEOPLE ARE SO DOWN ABOUT THIS PHONE! IT WILL GET ROOTED ALSO CUSTOM BOOT LOADERS HAVE BEEN MADE BEFORE!

mannw1977 says:

Very true. There is a way around everything.

Menno says:

Because this phone has a tripwire that will brick the phone (totally) if you don't enter the wrong code.

Rooting and replacing the bootloader are trial and error. This means a potential dozens or hundreds of bricked devices to hack the boot loader. Do you want to donate $600 to the cause?

irishpride says:

I also believe the X will get rooted eventually. People try to compare it to the Milestone, but the X will have 10X the following. Have some faith. See pal, you can get your point across without using all caps!

Menno says:

the milestone didn't have a tripwire/efuse that makes phone unusuable if your unlock code doesn't work.

Retrokid223 says:

people need to shut up and stop depending on root so much. android phones from now to the future will have great specs that u dont need rooting for. rooting to me and yes i am rooted, isnt that much of a deal. sure custom colors, terminal, over clocking is sweet but when u have a already great phone, its pointless!

Menno says:

Rooting isn't about specs.

A rooted G1 is running 2.2 a non rooted g1 will FOREVER be stuck on 1.6.

Tell a G1 user that there's no benefits to rooting.

Retrokid223 says:

im not stating the older devices can't have rooting, im stating new devices that are released by HTC or motorola. okay rooting gives people un official updates that arnt release by the maker. but to me its not safe unless its released by the maker. all this bootloader stuff might be a hint towards gingerbread where android will be able to push updates faster to devices.

gcims says:

On the subject at hand.... I just left an electronics store with the initials BB. The girl opened the cabinet behind her and there were two dozen Droid 's stacked up ready for tomorrow.(they are calling people and making appointments for people to pick up their reserved phones) She was quite pissed at the last employee in there because they left it unlocked and cracked open a couple inches. LOL.
