    lol..i'm not that smart,just been readin a bit. rooting is kinda like jailbreaking on an iphone. it allows you to put a different UI on the phone. some have said that Rachael is more compatible with the moto because it has the same resolution and is designed for 2.0...
    and Rachael is smokin HOT!

    Hey guys. Found an awesome thread on rooting of the droid. I am posting from my storm so here is the link.

    Looks like it could be a while before this happens.

    No problem. I have been selling myself on that phone. I am thinking maybe black friday. That would be great.

    Hopefully it lives up to my internal hype.

    I love the UI of the Droid, but I'm just not liking the phones they have. Not a fan of trackballs, whether it's on BB or not, and the phones just isn't catching my interest. If they could have the outer body similar to the S2 with a Android OS...then I would b on the line ready to buy.

    Finally been holding this in all day.. I had a training this morning that I learned this. VZW and google have teamed up alot bigger than people think. VZW also paid an 'unnamed' company about 70mil to buy the name Android. They also have exclusive rights on the os from google.. i.e. no other device can get the 2.0 yet, it will be released to all other devices late 2010 like this time late.. also when 'flaun' is launched by vzw (first always first vzw will always get the new release to release on phones about a year in advance) no other phone will get it for roughly 1 year....just wanted to share thanks for asking

    Josh you sure about the paying for the name Android. The term was trademarked by Lucasfilm Ltd. back in the days when George Lucas did Star Wars. Not saying it's not true, just would be surprised if George Lucas decided to sell the name for $70 million.

    'unnamed' company.... and maybe the lady today said billion.. i was kinda getting tired of watching videos that had been on youtube for a week i am googling right now to try and find more info but if you look and see who made the droid does commercial to I believe it was lucas film.. and yes the one thing I am sure of is that VZW now owns the name android


    edit- everything I have found so far just says its trademarked by lucas films.. and under license to vzw, but I was told today that it the name was bought.. maybe this is what they meant to say.. I am kind of angry and will be making some phone calls next week to find out for sure
