    These ARE the Droids you're looking for.

    I went to the local Verizon store and played with the phone for 45 minutes straight testing everything out. The camera seems to be greatly improved over the preview models that were sent out. I was very impressed with the phone. Although, I'm coming from a lifetime of Windows Mobile phones so it doesn't take much to impress over that.

    So once I was done I bolted out of the store and headed to Best Buy where I showed them a picture of the WalMart display saying $188.00 and they priced matched it. 10 minutes later I was out the door for a grand total of $198 and change. I then went back to Verizon and bought a privacy screen protector. #1, so I can watch porn at work and #2, because it's also anti glare in the sunlight.

    I do everything in Google, Gmail, Contacts, Calendar, Reader, Tasks, Google Voice (for Voicemail) and all I had to do was punch in my gmail login and password, and BOOM! Contacts, Gmail, Calendar, everything just flooded in by itself and 5 minutes later it was all set up like my Omnia. Except it didn't take 4 hours to do.

    I love the phone, and the physical keyboard isn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I'll get used to it in no time.

    If you use Google services online, you can't get a better phone.

    Went to a VZW store today so I could at least play with the DROID.

    I hate my contract right now.

    Basically RSS feeds that I subscribe to... despite all the various apps available, I still use Google Reader on the web. Works great on iPhone, sorta great on the Pre. Expecting it to be great on the Droid.

    Actually, there is no Google Reader app by Google. Which I thought was odd. however NewRob, seems to be a great free app to take the place of it. I haven't used it much, but it gets high ratings in the app store.

    Got mine today after using my boyfriend's to test that everything I wanted to connect to (particularly Exchange) would work. Been very happy so far!

    Would like to try with Google voice if I could get an invite. I signed up for one, but have no idea what the wait will be like...

    Got mine yesterday as well. I actually like all the keyboards (which surprised me, given how I like the distinct "keys" on the original Q...)

    So far, so good. Only issue is I noticed phone has shut down twice (re-booted) which has not made me happy, and froze twice. Believe it or not, Motorola recommends a "battery pull", just like the BB to fix this situation...:016:upset

    Yesterday

    I received mine yesterday from Best Buy. I love getting to learn the phone, but am frustrated at learning the phone. Sometimes I'll need an answer to a question that pops up right away, and it's no where to be found. This thing is too cool though.

    I picked up mine Friday, and I haven't stopped playing with it since. I'm having too much fun. I'm glad I waited to upgrade until this came out!

    OK heres my turn, when I was without my laptop yesterday I was on this forum on the droid but the only way I could post anything was to pm Mr. dragonfly? There was no post buttons I could find in any of the strings? Does this make sense to anyone what did I miss, other people are posting from the droid?

    It sounds to me like you were not logged in. I know I don't see those buttons if I am not logged in. Try it again and see if you can log in.
