I am a real estate agent, and am considering the Droid. Are there any Realtors out there using the Droid? How do you like it? What does/does not work for you?
I'm not a realtor, but might I ask what you're interested in doing with the phone? And what phone you're currently using? What do you like/dislike about it? What were you hoping to get from the droid? We might be able to offer some 'non-realtor but other businesses' input.

Hi, welcome to DroidForums....
I'm certainly no realtor; however, I read your post and jumped onto Andro Lib (which is an online version of the Android apps Market) to see if there were any real estate related apps...
I found these results (click this link)>>>> realtor | All | By date, Androlib, Android Applications and Games
Not sure if those help you make your decision or not, but at least you now know that you can browse all the available apps in the Android Market to see what you can add to your Droid.
Good luck in making your decision! I love my Droid.
I am not a realtor, but I work in the industry. I bought the phone for the GPS and I have been impressed with using it to get to properties. I work primarily in a newer area. I used to have to find 30-40 % of addresses in Google anyway because my stand alone GPS would not. Now I can put the property address in my Outlook calendar or even copy and paste a web page from the property listing in the calendar on my desk top for the day/time I need to be there. I open the date on my phone, press the address link, GPS pops up and away I go.
Droid does some cool and amazing things. Yet it does not do some basic stuff that has been stock on most phones for years. It makes me think the Google developers were marooned in some kind of a 1977 LOST flashback/flashforward/sideways combo reality gameshow
Thanks for the responses.....My blackberry curve does all that I need it to do. I have my email always available, full detailed contacts, calendar, appointment reminders, and the internet with me at all times. I can take a call while waiting in line at starbucks, look up a home on the MLS, set up a showing, and email my client before I get my coffee if the line is 5+ cars long. The problems are that the BB is a bit pokey (att), and the screen is so damn small. I need a more robust mobile device. I need a better device for internet use, taking and viewing pictures, and looking over docs (does the droid do PDF files?). My main concern today is with contact management. I am an outlook junkie, and use gmail only for times when I dont want to start off with my main email address. Gmail is comparable to outlook express 1.0 on training wheels. I have heard rumors about apps or even the next version of the android OS working with standalone Outlook. I am wondering if there is a good alternative for Contact management or a work around for working with Outlook.
