    Bit the Bullet..

    OK since the S2 and Bionic are nowhere in sight yet and I'm pressed to add a new line this weekend, I've bit the bullet and ordered the X2.
    It should be here tomorrow.

    I've held out as long as I can for the other two units to arrive so I'll be using the X2, the new line will be put on my current phone.

    And if/when the S2 ever arrives, I'll use the upgrade for it and give the motorola X2 to the newer line.

    OK.. all that out of the way.. I've had winmo smart phones, this will be my first droid.
    I don't plan to root this thing, at least not right away.
    So what apps should I plan to get first to keep it running smoothest out of the box?

    Thanks!

    Depends on you you ask... Motorola will tell you installing extra stuff is not necessary... Some folks will tell you it won't run smooth without rooting it and tweaking every last setting... Some people think task managers help... And some will encourage you to use custom launchers and other performance apps...

    You will get 10 different opinions if you ask 10 different people.

    If you're dead-set against rooting, my recommendation is to use it as is... and if you find you want to do something specific that isn't built-in, do some Google/Market searches and find an app that's getting good reviews.

    I've been running mine stock since I got it. It works for me until the devs get on this thing.

    Welcome to Android! As the above posters pointed out, the possibilities are endless. Truthfully, out of the box...I can't think of an app to keep it running smooth without rooting it. I'm in the camp that believes task managers are pointless in Linux and can cause more problems than they fix. Other than that just keep looking in this forum. I've had almost every question or problem I had solved or at least addressed by someone here. Android people are the best! Welcome aboard!

    Thanks everyone! It just arrived and it's on the charger now.
    I'm quite surprised that the usb and hdmi ports are open without a cover.

    I've never had a phone where the charging ports didn't have some sort of "door" over them.

    Do any of you have issues with that?

    Any recommended task killers? I've always read those are essential.

    My .02, you don't need a task killer. Your phone comes with a task manager, just put things that you would want auto ended once your done using into that. That's what I do. Seems to be legit.
