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

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?

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.

+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.

BTW, welcome to android central!

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.
