I keep seeing motorola droids for sale, they seem to go for about $250 without contract, which is pretty good for 16Gb. I don't want to (can't) pay for a contract at the moment, but I was wondering, could I just use it as what would essentially be an android iTouch? Access to the apps market, and internet over wifi?
Also, would this preclude me from, say, getting a data only contract later, and maybe a skype account for my calls?
In my googling, I came across this article, but no comments to confirm it.
Or am I making this too hard, and there is already an android 2.1 (upgradeable at some point to 2.2) device that I could be using as such?
Any help would be awesome.
Edit: Also, is there a map pack I can add for navigation? I'd still like to be able to use the GPS, but without maps or 3G, it's kinda useless
