Do you think there will be a decline in Droid sales. To me the X is the best! But what are you guys thoughts on this announcement! What effects will this have on our beloved Droids X's!

Droid X had already proven its superiority and im sure you will get a few to switch back to the I phone and a few who do switch back to the I phone to shortly return to android.
Its all a matter of preferance and I think I phone has list its edge to android why else would they be willing to stop their exclusive sale rights with att? Because they are losing to android.
I wanted an I phone but an glad I ended up with an x.
Sent from my DROID X using my fingers!

I thought I wanted an iphone when I learned of the X. even with all the glitches from froyo, which I will surely be able to take care of when I have the time, the X is the best. I recently got an ipod touch and frankly, I don't get it. What is so great? I am glad I could get all the levels on angry birds but other than that, give me a Droid any day!
"I think I phone has list its edge to android why else would they be willing to stop their exclusive sale rights with att?"
I totally felt this way! When I heard the announcement this morning I felt that Iphone makers woke up. They seen how VZ customers reacted to the droid and now they realized how " Exclusive" made them no money! I personally will ride with Google I think this will make Google come even better on there phones!

One thing I can think of for wanting the iphone back is computer backup and restore. With android, you have to reload each app individually and reset each contacts ringtone.
If google were to fix this, I wouldnt consider getting the iphone again.
One negative would be going back to a smaller screen.

If I wanted an iPhone, I would have gotten one by now. But I don't want one. I don't use and have never used anything that has anything to do with iTunes -- ever. I haven't touched Apple products since I had a Mac in college over 10 years ago, and I'm just fine keeping it that way.
And my thoughts are worth more than a penny.

WSJ: Apple's iPhone Coming to Verizon Wireless - DailyFinance
It's one of those persistent rumors that's always been floating around. It used to be that Apple may profit from it by having Verizon diehards hold off on buying Android/BB/whatever in hopes the iPhone lands. Now I think it hurts Apple as people stop upgrading their iPhones on AT&T to avoid contracts. Whatever the motivation, don't believe it until you see it but eventually the rumor may be true.
If it were a sane company I'd say it's not going to happen, why introduce your first CDMA phone on the dawn of the LTE era. But Apple actually released a 2G version of the iPhone well after 3G was well deployed only to make their customers upgrade a year later.

Would Apple or verizon had let this out, if they have kept managed to keep this out of live media these last 2 years. So far was only on the internet, not a lot of live broadcast now it's a live broadcast.
like I said earlier we knew this was going to happen!!!

The news organizations are just regurgitating the Wall Street Journal's speculations. Yes, I think it's probably accurate, but it's not *OFFICIAL* yet.
That being said, when the iphone does come to VZW, I don't know how much difference it's really going to make, at least to anyone who's going to be reading these forums. It will take business away from AT&T and bring it to Verizon, which in the short term is going to overwhelm the network a bit but in the long term is going to make it bigger and stronger (which will only benefit us all).
The folks who buy a smartphone because it's the thing to have, but don't know how to work it anyway, will probably buy iphones instead of Android phones, but I don't see how that's a bad thing for the rest of us.

It is speculation until it is officially announced by Verizon or Apple. "I read it in the news" no longer holds the same water it may have years ago when they actually investigated and didn't rush stories to press to be the first ones reporting it. The "news" has been speculating this every so often based on rumors, and the reason for the speculation this time is that it was leaked by a manufacturing company that they have been making CDMA iPhones ready to ship at a moments notice. Funny thing is, the last time I read about all of this, these CDMA phones could actually be for Sprint, wouldn't that be a big laugh?
So my thoughts? 32 Gigs is not enough for my entire music collection, I will keep my 64 Gig iPod Touch for now. If they release a 64 Gig version of the iPhone and make the call quality and phone as good as my Droid X, if the signal holds and they fix the Antenna-Gate situation, and I am able to type as easily as I can on my Droid X.....when my contract is up, I would explore that possibility. Quite a few things would have to be addressed for me to take that leap.

Hell by the time the iphone is released with CDMA/VZW the X will look long in the tooth. The next gen of top tier Droids will be something to behold. That said, I love my X. I just understand it's a world where you are only king of the heep for about a month or few, then you're old news.
