    I've never thought I'd ever be thinking about a phone that would do anything but talk or text, but do to the ever increasing users around me, I'm ready to make the move. I can see that I'll need to spend time learning the lingo and hopefully make the transition easier and I'm sure this site will be a great help and would gladly accept any information members of this site wish to share. I'm a pretty good mechanic but my computer knowledge is lacking abit. I've been pressured to purchase an Iphone but for some reason I just can't by into that whole Apple thing, persons that had droids before really loved them and said I would probably like the droid as well, so here I am.

    If you're a mechanic and you like modding stuff for performance and to make it your own then Android is the right choice for you. Do you have a phone yet or are you still deciding which one to get?

    I haven't gotten my phone yet. I've been reading and watching videos on the Droid so I get to know about the phone and hopefully that will make the transition from a regular phone to one that is capable of so much easier. I think the only thing that I have concerns about is being able to see the screen in daylight, some say you can't see anything and wish I could find someone with the droid to see for myself.
