I've been a new member for a little while now. This forum is extremely helpful.
I remember my first cell phone back when they were all bricks and you either had a Motorola or a Nokia.
I've tried out a few smartphones along the way:
Cingular 8125 (Played with this one extensively, but wasn't impressed. I just stayed with my 2125)
Sprint Treo 700p (Had lots of issues with it. First one I actually brought back)
Original Storm (biggest disappointment EVER - returned it within a week)
Finally the Droid
I've also had plenty of experience with nearly every one of the first few generations of pocket PCs.
The Droid is a breath of fresh air. It is extremely advanced. I love the Market and how there are updates nearly every other day for at least one application I have. I can do so much with my Droid.
I am very pleased. The only thing that could make it better would be if Verizon would lower some of their operating costs like Sprint and T-Mobile have.
