    Sometime between now and 3:00pm (at least according to FedEx) I will be the new owner of a Droid. My Samsung Omnia has been acting up lately and I got an early upgrade notice in the mail from VZW a couple weeks ago. Finally decided to pull the switch yesterday and placed the order. Looking forward to the Droid... not looking forward to transitioning from WinMo. I was a Palm user for years and finally switched to WinMo 3-4 years ago. Built up a nice collection of software along the way, so I'm a little bummed to be switching to the new platform. (But that's the ONLY reason). Everything else the Droid seems to offer really looks great.

    Glad to be here and looking forward to learning how to make my Droid work to it's fullest.

    Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to droidforums, don't worry I've never met anyone who was dissapointed after making the switch from winmo to android.

    Hey there & gratz on your new Droid. I also switched over from my Samsung Omnia to the Motorola Droid & could not be more HAPPIER with it! The Omnia imo was by far for me anyway, one of the worst made phones ever put out by Samsung with all of the "low memory storage" issues & whatnot. Trust me when I say the Droid is definitely kick ass & that you won't regret it!

    Thanks for the welcomes!

    And yes, it finally arrived! What a great piece of machinery. It's definitely taking some time to figure out how everything works. The "Getting Started" manual was less than stellar in explaining how to do stuff. Is there some other manual? I assume it's online, but there was nothing in the box other than the getting started doc and the battery docs.

    I'm liking it so far. Before, I was syncing to GMail and Calendar on my Omnia and could only get my main calendar. I love that I can now see the three ical subscriptions I also use.

    I've got soooo much to learn. Thankfully, a couple of close friends have Droids and they are showing me the ropes.

    I had the Winmo i760 for a few years. I "thought" it was great and almost bought an omnia. That is until I started watching the Android phones. I am so happy I got away from Winmo. The UI is so outdated and it was so hard to get to programs, etc with that stupid menu system.
    Android is a whole different world and I don't regret it at all.
