Ok, so a couple weeks ago I mentioned that my Verizon contract was coming up and I wanted to get a Smartphone.
On August 12th, my day to renew came and I headed to the local Verizon store to check out the Droid X versus the HTC Incredible.
As I was sitting there, the UPS guy showed up and left a package. The store wasn’t open yet.
When they opened at 10am I headed in and started handling the merchandise! I liked the Motorola Droid X for the most part. I heard recently that the most popular phones were the Droids, then the Blackberry and finally the iPhone.
The manager was opening the UPS package and showed me the Droid 2 that was hitting shelves THAT DAY! Do I have great timing or what?
I decided to be responsible and not make an impulse purchase, even tho I had been looking at Smartphones for a while. I backed away from the store and headed home.
Decided to do some research through Swagbucks. I searched “Droid 2” and only found one article that really discussed the phone.
Not only did it discuss the Droid 2 it talked about the…
My kids would go berserk!
So I started researching that phone. Guess what I came up with?
A whole lotta nothin’!
Yesterday I figured I’d do research on the Droid again since it had been out for a week. Guess what? I found information (singing that word)!
Sure, it comes with some cool Star Wars apps, but visually, eh, not so impressed. The back looks like R2-D2. Stark white with R2-D2 colors.
So, here’s my quandary. Do I wait until the E-N-D of next month for the R2-D2 Droid that’s a limited edition and possibly not even get it (because I don’t know how many there are) OR do I go ahead and get the Droid 2?
Have I mentioned that since April or so, my battery only lasts about 10 minutes, if I’m lucky? Sometimes it’s a bit more, but often it’s a lot less. My Motorola KRZR is 2 yrs old. It’s on its last leg.
I believe they have all the same features, just the look, limited edition, and Star Wars apps will be different.
I’m still waiting to hear from Verizon. I sent them a pitch to see if they’d be my sponsor. Hopefully my loyalty as a customer will override the low number of followers I have. =)
