    haha nice!

    Most games that are made for 800x480 either stretch so little that you don't notice (54 pixels..) or have a small border at the top/bottom. Good apps theme the border to match the games UI or something and it isn't noticeable. I've had no issues with this on my Droid so don't worry.

For those who have tried an active version, are the buttons out of the phone enough so that I don't have to use my finger nail to press them ?
    According to every picture and review I've seen, there shouldn't be an issue. They appear to be "popped out" enough to be perfect. Reviews all like the buttons, video reviewers hit the buttons with 0 effort/nail, and pictures show them sticking out more than in.
    There's a map for that...

    Is it just me, or does it look like the only case that will cover the screen is the custom leather pouch? I hope it doesn't use a magnet to close.

    I went to a verizon store and they had a real demo unit. The buttons are not recessed on the real unit.

    I'm amazed, but one thing I've noticed that is fixed in the new firmware is that the small text in web pages are no longer jagged around the edges. I noticed it right away when using the browser...wow the small text is sharper and not pixelated. Thank you Motorola.
    This really makes me wish every phone site known hadn't rushed to get a review typed up with their demo units. Hopefully someone will still do a review with a final release version. (Or maybe do a follow up review?) I just wonder what else might have been changed/improved...

    Since the Droid X was updated from .516 to .604 firmware, I took a few new pics today to see if anything changed. I think they *might* be a tad sharper, but its tough to tell when looking at them next to the pics I took with the .514 firmware. The color is still very accurate in the pictures. The video quality hasn't improved and is still 24fps (I was hoping that a firmware update would get it to 30fps).

    The "swivel holster" is a face-in design.



    I plan to wait for Seido's Innocase Combo to be released, though. It adds to the thickness a little, but really protects the phone. Their swivel clips are extremely durable, as well. (The clip on the VZW-supplied case for my BB 8830 broke on my way home from the store!)

My friends HTC Heros wont do much on a linux computer which makes no sense to me, and they say they can only use windows which baffles me.
    Verizon is actually a LOT better about locking out features than they used to be. Them even having an Android phone is not something I would have guessed a few years back. They would cripple pretty much all phones, and it was especially obvious on devices like the Palm OS phones where you could not use anything but the one Verizon customized web browser (which was never updated). You would read the manufacturer's specs on the phone and then the phone would come to Verizon with many of those features removed. Stupid things like sharing photographs yout ook with the phone through anything but the Verizon pixplace website. ugh. Glad that's in the past.

    One of the reviews (posted on youtube) made it appear that sliding the phone into the car dock connected to the micro-USB port. The car dock also activates "car mode". I'm guessing it has a pass through port on the dock so you *can* plug that into a lighter charger, or maybe even some sort of car interface. The videos were shot at the launch event (or in an office), so it was not like they actually had a dock to play with in their own car.

    I might not be explaining it right, but if you ever saw the docks for the iPhone.... by itself it is just an iPhone stand, but it has an iPod connector on the bottom that you can leave a cable connected to. That's what it looks like. Not sure how you would get the audio of the phone to your car stereo if you don't have bluetooth pairing. I didn't see a review that go into that.

    This might have to be face-in because they are supposed to offer a hump battery that will be changing the dimensions of the phone. I'm curious how that large battery works with the car dock,,,,, if it does.

    It does use a magnet and it is BIG. Kind of heavy as well but that's how I roll. It is very nice looking and feels great. It has an elastic feel to it so it flexes when you pull the phone out. Highly recommended.

    The charger plugs into the back of the dock and the dock has an adapter that plugs into the phone. it is pretty nice and quite an upgrade from the Droid's car dock.I just wish that for 40.00 bucks that it would have come with a power adapter.
