Sorry, There are rumors the Nexus Prime will be. I will be in line to get that thing Nov. 10 (if that is really the launch date) and will update here. I need something that will work in South America in a couple months.

Getting the phone regardless. I do not know at this point if I will also have to get a cheap world phone or disposable pay as go down there.

Droid 4 rumors are out, basically a Droid Razr with a keyboard....time for me to upgrade

The Ally is becoming a pain to use as its memory is filled up with all the updates just to the core programs.

There are a bunch of apps on sale for 10 cents on the market right now, I think this is day 2 out of 10 that they are doing this for.

Oh and the Droid 4 comes out Thursday from the most recent scuttlebutt.

Does anyone own a Droid 2/3? I'm thinking of getting the 4 soon and wondering how sturdy the phones are. Have you ever dropped them? What cases are you using?

Nexus has one.
I cut the cord on the button keyboard after the G1. I now have the DroidX. It took me about 2 days to get used to it. I also use the voice recognition a lot, so less of a reason to type on a little device.

I got a device with a physical keyboard, but once I got Swype, I never used it again. Guess it's different if you're a proficient texter.

I've got a droid 1, not sure how similar/different they are. It's a sturdy phone, I've been impressed. I'm not easy on phones, either- I'm a carpenter, and it seems like whenever I'm carrying something big and awkward, it ends up supported by the phone in my pocket.

I have a Droid 2. I carry it always but have only dropped it onto tables etc. It's a brick of a phone especially with the heavier battery. The only complaint I had against it was the screen and some flickering with light colors scrolling on black.

It does get kinda dirty every once in a while and I just blow it out with the air hose and it seems fine. I see one little scuff in the corner from where I vaguely recall dropping it. I don't use a case, just a $2 belt loop case because my pockets are full.

I have seen a Droid 1 screen all cracked from a drop. I think that also had gorilla glass so it isn't 100% immune from drops but it does very well against scratches.

I use the physical keyboard for everything.. typing, scrolling (space bar, shift+space). Very rarely do I use onscreen keyboard, I think maybe just for numbers sometime.

My Droid 3 is pretty tough with the Gorilla Glass plus I'm hard on my phones and the D3 is holding up well despite the abuse - I'm still going to get a D4 when it comes out (was suppose to be today but looks like the end of the month now or later).

Glad I called first. Damn you Verizon for another push back. (shaking fist)
