    Just beginning to delve into this beauty, and I have never had a smartphone before...but I LOVE this phone. apologies to Kingsqueen...I am a hypocrite! Said I would never buy a smartphone. That aside, this phone has a great real keyboard(only reason i did not get the droid eris)and the first thing you will notice is how solid the damned thing is. You can change out the battery and upgrade the memory so this is a phone that may have lasting power. Battery power is a little dicey, but i haven't figured out how to download appkiller, which apparently helps manage power consumption. The touch screen is scratch resistant but prone to smudges...spend the $12 for the 3 pack of plasic stick on screen protectors...very much worth it. It's very responsive and for someone with clumsy fingers, it is very forgiving. This is a great phone that will only get better. I will post more as I get accustomed to it. If you are a verizon customer, due for a 'new after 2' you can get it for $149 and you can get a second one for free(of course you gotta do the 2 year plan etc for the second phone...but if you and a significant other want to get phones together...).

    Looks like X10 will coming to a US carrier EARLY summer. for about 199. Which carrier I can't say it has gotten FCC approval for both ATT and TMO.

    I'll be out of contract in April. I guess it's either the X10 or iPhone (4th generation) in June.

    I'm buying an unlocked Nexus One until then......... :P

    A friend of mine got the Droid a few days ago. I played with it for about 30 minutes. On the surface, it does what I've been already doing for 2 1/2 years on my iPhone. It didn't seem much faster. It didn't do anything noticably revolutionary. In my opinion they just took an iPhone and made a couple tweaks. It was nice, but didn't do anything that makes me want to change.

    Has your friend updated the Droid yet? The latest firmware makes it snappier, I hear.

    just an FYI to Verizon users.. I'm pretty sure that if you have a "Vpack" and update your service, you will no longer have an option for that anymore. I recently got rid of all internet on my phone (happens when you are unemployed and need to cut back on stuff).. The Rep told me at that time, that the data plan i had (which was the vpack) is not available anymore. I believe they only have the "data packs" now, which are a bit more expensive...

    Was really disappointed with battery life till I downloaded the tasKiller app. Much better. I am still loving this phone. I have never had a smartphone before as i said before so i have no comparisons to make...but the iPhone has no physical keyboard, right? That, and the phone call quality were 2 of the deciding factors in my choice. If any DROID users can recommend any cool apps for me to download, I would appreciate it.

    Love my HTC Hero. My bro-n-law has the Droid and I like it also, but my Hero can do anything the Droid can do. Which is alot more than the Iphone can.

    Great app to download: Pandora. Internet radio at your finger tips.
