Yes it is a droid and it is running 2.1..It is suposed to be upgraded to 2.2 this quarter.As for the phone..It is great.I have had it for 3 weeks and I like the droid market better then Apples app market.As for it being a poor mans Iphone I think it is a better phone and only people with Iphones say that.
i wosh i would have gotten the acer instead of the x10. the acer is already on 2.1 and getting upgraded to 2.2. it has multi touch and the x10 does/will not. the x10 will no longer be updated to 2.2 without hacking/rooting the phone voiding your warrenty and installing a custom rom from xda-dev team. 2.2 is a huge update due to some of the programming changes there have been reports of up to 400% processing capability which leads to a faster phone and better battery life. if you want to get an android phone, the acer is the only decent one sold by rogers.
