Another one bites the dust...

Welp, funny timing my last post about there being no good Android phones at the moment.

My trusty side kick, the Motorola Droid has decided to die...

Not entirely mind you, but the touch screen is becoming unusable. The bottom left corner in fact. The hardware "back button" is the most affected, working almost not at all, but also anything in the lower right hand part of the screen has become very unreliable.

You wouldn't believe how critical your back button is until you don't have it :(

Anyway, my phone is pretty critical to my every day life as well as development (I've been working on an Android game which I will post about soon.) So I had to replace my phone. Since it was rooted, and I had canceled my phone insurance after the last time I had to deal with them (miserable experience), I was a bit out of luck, and had to buy a new phone on my own.

Being about 4 months out from my upgrade period, and not wanting to pay full off-contract price on a last-gen phone, I turned to EBay ;)

I picked up a Droid Incredible for $199! Not too bad for off contract! And when I do finally upgrade to a sweet new next gen phone, I'll have this for testing purposes :)
