Yup. I just ordered a Motorola Droid X. It has an 8 Megapixel camera, an HD video recorder, 4.3" touch screen, decent battery life, 16MB memory, free gps navigation, HDMI, WIFI, push email for my email, speech recognition, and runs on Verizon, which is far better than AT&T in my area. It costs $199 with a 2 yr contract. And I got $50 back for a renewal thing from Verizon. So the net was $149.

Pretty slick phone.

Why choose a blackberry with a ball over a new touch panel phone? Being a landscaper I like having no buttons for dirt to get into! And seems alittle easier to surf the Internet. And who cares about batt life? Last I checked my iPhone will go an entire day without needing a charge, but if it ever does I have a car charger

No ball on my Bold. Dirty fingers don't work well on touch screen. I care about battery life...I hate to be tied to a wall outlet/charger.

Here's a thread that tells my story. Now, the actual cost of my Sprint is actually less than what is stated here. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.p...ghlight=sprint
