Should early adopters beware?
So I'm a current BB Storm 2 user, and I can't wait to finally get my hands on an Android phone. I want to grab the X on launch day, however, I am a little concerned about grabbing a phone on release day seeing as the history of first day phones is usually plagued by at least some less than minor problem (look at the iPhone 4 launch as an example, or even more relevant, the Incredible). After my debacle with the Storm 1, I vowed never again (then bought the Storm2 on launch day anyway).
I just want to know if people think it may be somewhat smart to maybe wait a week or two before trying to pick one up in order to avoid any, as I call them, "left-handed", issues.
And yes, I know all the reviewed phones seem to work great, but when they put the phone on the market it always seems to have some undiscovered issues.
Sorry for the mini rant there, but would like to get some opinions out there.

i think that enough people (read: journalists) have the droid x and will put it through its paces over the next 3 weeks. i think if there are going to be any serious hardware or software issues, they will hopefully be brought to light before the phone's release.

This phone looks solid. I'm on the fence if I should order this one or hold out a few more months. I'm trying to get my primary line on a 1 year contract, but I can't upgrade early without a 2 year commitment. My two year contract expires just after the 1st of the year.
I have a 1 year contract line that will allow me to upgrade in late September.
What should I do????

Every Android phone i have got has either been pre ordered or gotten on the 1st day it launched ( Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Incredible ). Both of them have been great for me. My Moto Droid is still running like a champ. I also have had no problems at all with the Incredible. So if I was you I would not sweat it at allDevice : Galaxy Nexus
Build : 4.0.3 IML74K

I wouldn't worry about being an early adopter. I think Motorola has proven that they make good hardware, and any software issues that may arise will likely be fixed with an update. I'm a launch day owner of both the Pre and Evo and have been very happy.
Don't forget, if you aren't happy you have 30 days to return it.
If you really want it, get it on launch day and don't think twice!
Preorder if you can, I'm sure the Droid X will sell out quickly just like the Evo.

I think we will be OK to get the "first"
Unlike the Iphone, the Droid X has been in the hands of reviewers - including this site's reviewer. With the Iphone, nobody had one until all those people stood in line, then they found out all the problems it had.

After trying both Android and an iphone. I have to give it to Android hands down. So many more customizations with it then the ugly stock screen of the iphone.
Keep it up Android!, Keep it up!
