I must admit, I am pretty pleased with my Droid X. The modding community has taken an already excellent phone and made it amazing. Gingerbread runs excellent with virtually no lag-and a 2-day battery life depending on your usage. The community is also fairly far along on ICS (still no camera and not-so-great battery life). So, far I haven't seen any phone that has made me really want to upgrade.

Would love to 'break up' with my iPhone and get a Windows Phone for it. But I guess then they would get WAY too many tweets.

Posts like these show just how "out of their element" MaximumPC is when talking about anything other than PC's.

"Droid" is a brand, you ONLY get "Droids" from Verizon. Calling ALL Android phones "Droid" is like calling ALL PC's "Pavilions"

Would Motor Trend put up an article saying "Do you hate your Chevy F-150?"

That's exactly what "MaximumPavilion" looks like everytime they pigeon hole every Android phone as a "Droid". Why "Droid"? Why not Galaxy S? Hell why not just call ALL cell phones iPhones while we're at it?

Your post show just how much of an idiot you are as MaximumPC is not calling all Android phones Droids. In fact it was taken directly from Microsoft’s twitter page and they are the one’s guilty of calling Androids Droids. Why don’t you actually read the entire article next time before you go off on some idiotic rant.

Yet Maximumpc posted it as well. So they're just as guilty. How about YOU read the entire article before you go off on some idiotic rant.

Yet you still know what they mean...

I paid $75 on Amazon for my Motorola Atrix and 1.5 years later it still impresses me. I also got the laptop dock for $100. I'd be lying if I said I hate my droid and I'd also be lying if I said I wanted a Windows phone. Microsoft needs to give us all free phones considering how far behind they are. We'd be doing them a favor. I only see businesses forced to buy a phone from MS, like the company I work for. The doors are opening for Android and iOS though.

The Atrix was released one year ago next week. Not a year and a half ago.

But the Atrix is not a "Droid".....

I have a HTC Desire HD and while its a pretty cool phone it has a few annoying bugs that should be worked out (keyboard lag) I played around with a buddies windows 7 HTC and it was nice but I really don't care about the live integration. I wish there was a phone with excellent hardware, good software and a good music player.

Hmm... I've tested many Windows Phone 7/7.5 devices and found them all to have excellent hardware... I must admit though, integrated surround sound speakers seems pointless to me.

Overall, they all had excellent hardware... with Zune integration, they ALL had a 'good' (I consider excellent) music player.

Having to oversee 1300+ handsets, a common user experience is what we are looking for... not an un-ending scourge of users wasting time customizing their handset. We want device #231 to offer the same core user experience as device #1219, regardless of hardware manufacturer.

We tried, but can't get that same assurance with 'droid.

It seemed to be a nice phone. I totally forgot about having Zune on there. I agree surround sound speakers do seem a little pointless. It seems to be an upgrade over what my Desire has soundwise..... but I would rather a slide out keyboard.

I love Android and I enjoy my phone but I reliability is more important to me. Its also annoying to have to keep up with which phone has what version of Android.

Hmm. Maybe you should try the Samsung Galaxy SII. Its not a "Droid".
