Agonizing over Droid Razr Maxx HD From Droid X

Agonizing over Droid Razr Maxx HD...
I would be going from Droid X. I Read alot and have music downloads too. I sell on eBay, I do alot of emailing and surfing. I run with the kids to and from one event or another and take care of an elderly parent, all this doesn't leave me with time to do much else. Such as try out a new phone....
I Love my DROID X!! But, tis time to go for the upgrade.
I could list all of the pros, and there are quite a few... but let me just say that the Razr has a proven track record and Motorola has surpassed first class in durability.

Newbie question - Droid X2 OS v# ?????

First off hey to everyone. New here and hope to learn a lot. I just read the whole article about Samsung winning the ok to sell the new Nexus "mini" for now that will have the new Android OS, Jelly bean. I want to know what I have, Gingerbread/Icecream Sandwich, what gives ? I know you have to do the entire OS update through a Wifi connection if I'm not mistaken, but I'm used to normal PCs and basically installing whatever you want, what else can be gained if anything from my phone I have now until I can upgrade in a year Sad ? Thanks for the help. Jon
