Droid X and Droid 2 Already Getting Projected ‘End of Life’ Dates
 

 
Quick! Panic! You’ve only had your brand new Droid X or Droid 2 for a matter of weeks! Verizon can’t seriously already be thinking about phasing them out, can they? Well, yes and no. The good news is that the date pegged for a potential ‘end of life’ for the two new Motorola handsets is March 31st, 2011. That is eight months away. The bad news is that is eight months away, a full 16 months before the contract on your new Android smartphone most likely expires.

my only guess is that the reason they are coming out with end of life dates is because of the rumored iPhone for Verizon. no one knows if it is really coming out for Verizon but I mean it would make sense. I think its dirty that Verizon is even entertaining Apple excepting the fact how good Motorola has been to Verizon but we will see. I personally as an iPhone user hope that the iPhone doesn't make it to the Verizon network. call it hate but it is what it is...

But then why would verizon would want to return to a network that rejected them in the 1st place when verizon was offered the iphone 1st??? Not only that, think about the system that verizon uses. They use CDMA which is an outdated technology that barely people around the world use. GSM is 90% global and more advanced to use from anywhere around the world.

So in order for a verizon iphone to come out, Apple will have to remake a brand new iphone with CDMA frequencies in it. And I don't think Jobs will even think about doing that. Verizon lost in that situation battle if you ask me.

Sounds stupid

Seeing how the old fart G1 lasted from Oct 08 to March 10 with the updates there's no reason for a carrier to drop support on a "super droid" so fast

Well i know im waiting for the 2ghz or dual core droid right now because right now my droid is over clocked 1ghz with custom roms, and not stock with sense or blur.
