picked up a droid x today, goodbye Storm
So I picked up an DX today and in the first 10 mins of playing with this phone, what was I ever thinking staying with the storm. Perhaps I shouldn't even compare the phone as I'm sure it has been here more times than anybody can count, but they don't compare in the least. berries to oranges. Anyway, read a few posts and this seems like a good place for info.
First question, where can I find info for Rooting as I would like to tether this thing. Any help would be great. Thanks

i had one at launch too. 7 different phones later (2 blackberry's, 4 androids and a winmo) i'm liking my x most of all.
the only time i missed my bb (not the storm though, i missed my tour) was when i was overseas and couldn't use my droid. plus bbm, i'll always miss bbm a little.

tethering---connecting your phone to your computer either through a usb cable or bluetooth to enable one to use a internet capable phone as an internet "source" for the computer. essentially granting internet access on a computer from anywhere

I agree - the DX so far excels the BlackBerry line that even proposed improvements to BBs can't come close to what is available right now on the X. Absolutely LOVE it!
I felt guilty leaving the BB clan for all of 10 seconds - the amount of time to power on my new X. After that, it was all "Wow!"

Droidxnh, while I haven't received mine yet, I too saw the Torch and OS 6.0 and began to be turned off. Then I found out that Storm 2 users would be left out of the OS 6.0 frenzy, forsaken by the OS gods! So I decided to look at the Droid X and was mostly pleased with what I saw and how it felt in my hand. Now I'm just waiting patiently for its arrival and dreaming about it before it does. (Really I did have a dream about it, it was crazy!!)

Yet another original Storm 1 user here from Nov '08... Also tried every new hybrid available to try to make it descent.
I just ordered the X
Very much looking forward to Android.
A tad concerned that I do see a lot of folks complaining about issues with the X.
Wondering if I should consider the Incredible while I still can?
I was not at all put off by the size of the X, I kinna liked it for the brief time I had testing it. I liked that the keyboard seemed a tad more spacious.
Also very much a tweaker here, so I don't judge products based on stock settings and choices. I understand the X can be rooted, yet there are still limitations... until that bridge is crossed... hopefully
Just seems like folks are more vocal about some issues with the X vs the Incredible?

There is some OS quirkyness that people need to get used to (just as any os has including Jesus OS for the Jesus phone ), but when it comes to hardware issues you have to remember that the more people buy it the problem will be seen. The fact that a months in only 1 or 2 threads on the first page are related to a true phone issue should be pretty reassuring.
There are bugs like the stuck GPS. That if you don't want to deal with you should wait till its fixed, but that's the cost of getting a phone so close to release. But these do seem to be software related so we they should end up getting fixed in future updates.

It gets so numbing when comparing features :-)
I realize that coming from the Storm, It will be a great relief to get just about anything at this point.
I just don't ever want to feel "stuck" again after making an awful choice.
I jumped on the Storm quickly in the hopes that firmware upgrades would fix all issues... well that came to a screeching halt

I ordered my Curve the same week the Storm 1 was released, and after following the buzz on Crackberry, I was glad that I chose to stick with the Curve. I actually liked the Curve a lot, and it was a very faithful phone.
But the X is so much better in every way IMO that I can't bring myself to miss BB.
