    I am going to guess that you mean should you put apps on the internal memory or the SD Card? In which case the answer is on the Droid X you have no choice but to install apps to the internal memory of the device until Android 2.2 (Froyo) is released on the phone.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    Does the DX allow you to save data such as pictures to the internal memory if you want to, or is the internal memory only used to store applications?

    Internal memory or a portion of it may be used to store data, I am unsure. Generally speaking data is stored on the SD Card to prevent the internal storage from being used up too quickly.

    The reason that I ask, is that I may have files that I dont want to store on the card. For example, if I have a file that stores passwords, I wouldnt want that on the SD card, that anybody could easily get hold of. On my BB, I store these types of files on the internal memory, so its at least protected by the phones password.

    What application? My guess is that that is app specific? If so choose the SD Card for any kind of data whether it be app data, MP3s, pictures, videos, etc...

    It had the SD Card option picked and lit up green, so I just picked it.
