You guys are also comparing Sense ported to a Motorola device with Sense running on the platform it was intended to.


Also there's almost a 1:1 relationship between the Desire and Nexus One community. You're comparing a locked down Motorola device to the original Android dev phone? biggrin.gif

I don't think you realize the Droid was NOT locked down. It was wide open like the Xoom, ultimately a developer device. Completely vanilla Android. Just like the g1, the Droid launched with 2.0 and then from then on they had nexus...nexus started with froyo

Not only was the droid not locked in any way shape or form, but it was also the first android phone on the verizon network, so it had a MASSIVE dev community. I would say that rivaling the nexus phones.
Never once did we say anything about sense ported to another platform. It is pretty much common knowledge among android developers that sense is a very loaded down UI compared to some others, and majorly compared to vanilla android.

And that's why the bootloader on every Droid from the original to the Droid 4 is locked? Its even worse on the international version, the Milestone. It hasn't even been properly unlocked yet.

And you forget that the US isn't the world. The Droid released on one carrier, and the Milestone wasn't remotely popular thanks to it's encrypted bootloader chicanery. Compare that with the Desire which is available in over a dozen countries on over a dozen carriers reaching a potential audience that more than triples the population of the US. Oh and that's not even counting the Nexus One, which as we all know is available SIM unlocked on nearly every carrier in the world.

Need more? The Droid/Milestone dev community on XDA has posted a combined 306 threads in the development section. The Desire alone more than doubles that at 795, with another 533 from the Nexus One. The only phones that can top that are the Galaxy S lineup.

I totally agree with the popularity of the OG Droid on Verizon. It was rivaling the competition and it was really powerful, and the fact that it was wide open and ran vanilla Android was great. I never knew that the international version wasn't so lucky frown.gif

To this day I don't understand why motorola didn't unlock the bootloaders, the only reason the original droid did so well was because devs could do basically anything with it, locking it down scared away a lot of people. .

Not exactly the same but the renaming of phones in the US is so annoying, they often make modifications too(G2 and the desire Z as an example) which just makes everything confusing and harder for developers.

The reason I think that generation of HTC phones was so sucessful with the developer community is because all the hardware is so similar, when the HD2 devs make a breakthrough they can help a desire developer, same with the HD, same with the N1 ect. I'd like to think the same is happening with samsung, but I still think HTC did better in that round.
