    I have a Droid (had it since launch) and recently picked one up for my wife for $40 when her Crackberry died.

    My wife's line is eligible for an upgrade and through Dell I can get her either a Droid X for FREE or a white Droid 2 Global for $19.99.

    Any advice on which way to go?

    Thanks,
    Todd

    If she wants a physical keyboard then D2, if not then DX.

    Same here.... but keep in mind most people who end up getting the physical keyboard on that phone barely use it after using the touchscreen for a while.

    That is true. And with a bigger screen on DX, on-screen keyboard is really good. And apps like Swiftkey and Swype makes the on-screen keyboard experience better.

    I mentioned the larger virtual keyboard on the DX and she was like 'great, now that I've gotten used to a real keyboard."

    Performance-wise, is there any significant difference?

    Nope. Nothing. Both have the same processor and same amount of ram. Just bigger screen or physical keyboard.

    +1 on this. I had the blackberry torch, and while they are totally different beasts, after a short while I grew to hate the slide out keyboard and would have just rather had a thinner phone.

    Thanks. I've been using the site for about a year now, but haven't posted on the forums. I get all of my Android info from AC.
