I am very excited to finally be an Android user. This is my first non-Windows Mobile phone since 2005. That’s right, between the Samsung i730, MotoQ and Samsung Omnia, I’ve been relying on Windows as my mobile OS for 6 years.
The lack of available apps has left me frustrated and the performance, touch and app start up is sluggish and pales in comparison to newer phones. My wife got the Moto Droid back in December and loves it. I’ve never had any desire to switch away from Verizon or, if you can believe it, get an iPhone. Android seems like a great operating system, and this new device, with 8mp camera and out-of-the-box tethering ability (there is a literally a card in the box reminding you of this feature) seems to fit my needs so well right now.
I’ll try and post a detailed review once I actually use this phone. If you’ve been using Android, any suggestions on which apps I should install?
