    they already do. i'm pretty sure there's at least one netbook out there with android os. google is also getting ready to release their chrome os. it's a web based linux os that will run google services like docs and gmail and stuff. and any other web app that's available.

    I had a Compaq Aero 2100 running WIndows CE2.1 back around 2000, it was decent but each newer version it seems MS made worse, I tried 6.0/6.1 with the Q but the OS was a pretty big let down. I gave up on windows on my home pc a few years ago when Xp was such a disapointment after windows 2000 so I'm pretty much windows free now.

    i know what you mean. i will say though that the windows mobile version that they are currently working 6.5.1 (not the 6.5 release that just came out) looks promising. it's much more finger friendly and runs very nicely. i had a custom rom on my omnia and it worked great. and i bet WM7 is going to be great, but it's taking them forever and android improvements happen at a blistering pace. it's only been a year and already the 2.0 OS is almost as good as the iphone's. (don't you dare tell anyone i said that.) i will say that windows 7 is incredible! it's what vista should have been and it is a worthy adversary to OSX. on my laptop i have a tri-booting system. Win7 as the default, OSX and Ubuntu Linux 9.04. all running on an HP pavilion DV7 entertainment PC. the only reason i have OSX is because i'm a filmmaker and i sometimes need to use Final Cut pro if i'm editing a project for someone else. i use adobe premiere myself. linux is on the verge of becoming a decent OS and i'm waiting for that or for google chrome OS. but i'll probably always run all three just for flexibility.

    If by 2.0 is almost as good as the iphones you mean better than the iphone then I agree. But I've never been impressed with Apple's "ease of use", to me their way of doing things is more annoying, sometimes it seems they do things differently just to be different, even if its not the easiest way for the user to do it.

    i just think that with the iphone it just works. you turn it on and no matter what you do it just works. with this phone it get almost the same experience. i say "almost" because twice the facebook app force quit on me and once the market force quite in me. i've had apps from market force quite but they weren't developed by google so i'm not counting those. and while they are minor minor issues, you still don't really have that with iphone apps. don't get me wrong i hate iphones so much i bought a $20 dummy iphone just to wreck it. and at the pace android is going it will be the superior movile os in a year's time and i have no doubt our droid's will be right there for the ride.

    rock on man! enjoy! :dft009:smile

    Multimedia Station

    i just bought the multimedia station before i went to work. it's very cool. one thing that bothers me though is that when it's docked it give you the weather based on your location. why isn't there a built in widget that does the same thing? first and so far only slightly disappointing quirk about the droid.

    tomorrow morning i'm going to do my own video review of the droid. i'll post a link wen it's up.

    Personally i use Weatherbug application the free one and it always updates the weather via my location and i have a widget on a screen that updates itself, as well as the temp is always updated in the signal bar along the top of the screen.

    yeah, i use the weather channel app for all that stuff. i just think it's crappy to have a feature that is ONLY available in the dock.

    You dont really need to wait, just do like i did call 611 and complain about how your phone stinks and how you want a new phone right away and they will move your upgrade date i complained about signal issues and losing calls and my upgrade date wasnt til the end of jan 2010 but they gave it to me early, so im sure they will let 8 days slide LMAO.
