Looking to upgrade phones

In the rural area I live, Verizon is the best provider. I'm close to the end of a current 2 yr contract. I'm looking to upgrade from a Blackberry Storm to an Android phone.

I have it narrowed to 2 Motorola phones the DROID 3, I like the slider keyboard option, and the Droid X2 and a Motorola Incredible2. I looked at revewis here and on Verizon's website.

Does anyone who has used any of the phones have an opinion they would like to share?

personally i am not a fan of motorola phones...
i had one bad one and i've never been back!
i would recommend the htc desire,
it is one of the best android phones on the market.
the reviews on this phone have set it up as a strong rival to the iPhone.

That's 2. One more without noting other sites and it's spam.

The Droid X2 is pretty much exactly the same as the Droid X minus the dual core processor. It has had its share of software crashes though. They dont have to get replaced as fast as original Droid X's either, but its only a matter of time. Droid Incredible 2's have a great setup, but they have a habit of randomly losing signal and never coming back, as well as a few random software glitches (which of course may arise from downloading random apps). The Droid 3 has a pretty unique setup as far as navigation goes and provides you with a lot of options on how you want to run your phone. It seems to be the clear winner in this battle of wits and might. Not only does it also have a dual core processor, its likely that you may keep it for a full year before looking at replacing it either through warranty or upgrade (i.e. sick of it).
