These are not the droids you are looking forAfter [insert large single-digit number here] years with a plain-old dumbphone, this weekend I made the plunge. Sunam and I upgraded to Droids: she got the HTC Incredible, and I went with the X. The experience thus far has not been positive. Mine has spent 48+ of the last 72 hours sporting The M of Death(see photo), and Sunam’s is proving to be Incredibly less intuitive than her Blackberry. And now we’re getting the run-around because I made the terrible mistake of going to a “Verizon authorized retailer,” not a “direct Verizon Wireless store.” We’ll get it straightened out eventually, but right now I’m thinking that plain-old dumphone wasn’t so bad.
