Apparently better to NOT purchase a Droid

I was talking with someone about purchasing a Droid last night.  I saw this today from Engadget about a huge jump in the ETF fee associated with smart phones from Verizon.  I think that just like their major competitor, they can’t handle the new phones and so would appear to be hoping to freeze the early adopters into not canceling, or make a lot of money from them when they do.  If they put this time and effort into the network, they would own the market.
