    what's a good test phone?

    searched, have not seen this question: i'm interested in learning to mod a droid phone (i own a droid x 2.2.1), but i'd like to try on a phone i don't rely on.
    can anybody make a recommendation of some decent phones i might be able to buy to learn to root and install custom roms?
    thanks in advance
    oh, and apologies if this is the wrong forum section.

    Droid 1, HTC Incredible, Nexus 1 are all good choices.

    When I'm doing app development I use a droid 1 as a benchmark, since it's significantly slower than my nexus one and the current crop of phones.

    It should be helpful in that regard: giving you a baseline by which you can judge performance vs current phones.

    A solid, if underwhelming, phone. Currently running some stripe of Gingerbread in ROM form, actually, so software support can be kept up-to-date. However, I'm not a dev, so my opinions aren't as valuable to this particular discussion. I'm just sharing to provide some outsider insight.
