    Looking for creative ways to utilize droid x

    Hey guys... I am director of a nonprofit project based in Central America. I have been holding off on a phone for a while because of my unique needs. I decided the droid x looked like it may be able to do the job.
    We are planning an exploratory trip through South America early in the year. I am preparing the droid x for use as a video blog, fundraising tool, and virtual office on the trip. I will also have use of a laptop. We are going to be attempting to use the droid to interact with multiple schools in the US, and I am just interested in seeing what you guys think could help, or if you have any other creative ideas on how we can utilize this phone on the trip...

    We are visiting wildlife rehab and rescue centers, as well as zoos. We will also go on hiking trips, and pretty much whatever else we found interesting at the moment.

    Currently we have Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Uraguay on the itinerary.

    Thanks for any ideas or discussions in advance!

    I use Sirius XM app to listen to 100+ channels for music ,news,sports.i use direct tv app if I'm out to program DVR for any programs I might miss. I use NFL app from Verizon for keeping up on football and esp my favorite team. All these can help keep in tuned while out on travels!

    So far

    So far I have downloaded the Justin.tv app so I can broadcast live to schools in the US. I installed Photo Wonder to edit photos on the fly if I am uploading directly to facebook, or twitter or whatever. Plus of course the social media widgets. Not so worried about keeping up on anything other than news as travelling to new parts of the world is the fun part!
    Also going to geotag everything.

    A World Edition of the Moto Droid 2 is supposed to be coming out relatively soon.

    First, are you sure you will have coverage in all those countries? I am sure you have probably spoken to Verizon about it but if you haven't I'd suggest checking out coverage maps and potential extra usage charges. Much of what you can do may be dictated by what features you have access to.

    One of the interesting Apps you may want to try is My Tracks by google. In fact I think many of the core google apps might be very useful for you. Sky Map, Translate, Earth and Googles might be useful.

    Since you are going to be out and about, I suggest you might also want to invest in a spare battery as battery life might be a concern.

    Good luck.

    1. Extended battery...or two.
    2. vehicle charger
    3. 32gb memory card or a handful of 16gb ones. Lots of video is going to fill those up fast.
    4. Cell coverage as most of the Nav and other apps won't work without cell coverage. If you are out in the boonies with no coverage search these forums for mapping and nav software that works off the grid.
    5. Flashlight app. Best tool yet!
    6. Compass app...sometimes not reliable so get real compass (or two!)

    a thought on how you can use the phone to interact with the students... take pictures of things, post them to a site (adobe photoshop app gives you a free site to post to) and have the students try and figure out what the item is... adjust difficulty to the age of the student. If you use facebook for it, they can post their answers right there.

    another phone use may be Geocaching. Or perhaps Google Earth to find nearby bodies of water or islands in rivers nearby.
