So I have traded my Samsung i760 running Windows Mobile 6 for the Motorola Droid running Android 2.0.1 code named Eclair. I am loving this phone. It is just as good as (some even say better than) the iPhone. It is fast, comes with a speaker phone, a big screen, built in wifi, bluetooth, and GPS, is based on Linux, is all open source, and is a slider so I have a physical keyboard. The hardware, OS, and software are all very finger-friendly. The Android market doesn’t have as many apps as the iPhone yet, but there are still thousands to choose from and the number is growing every day.
My Favorite Apps
The first thing I did was to connect my Gmail account to my Android phone. I instantly got my Gmail, Google Calendar, and Contacts synced. Then I connected the email and calendar client to my Outlook account at work. I love how the Corporate Contacts app can look up people at work without any additional information.
Plantronics Voyager Pro
I also bought a new Plantronics Voyager Pro and hooked it up to my new phone. What a great pair! The bluetooth connection is great, the noise cancelling works awesome, the volume is excellent… i am so glad I bought this!
