    Second post to this forum and before i start i would like to say this site appears to be a friendly site. I have done some searching about Android and the Droid X,but still have a couple questions.

    My Current phone is an iPhone 3G and use that for Pop mail, Syncing to OSX for contacts, few notes here and there. Some internet browsing since work decided to block all gaming sites, but left firearm sites open to view.

    My wife thinking of switching to Verizon and if Im going to switch i want the best phone i can get at that time. Droid X appears to be that phone.

    Does the Droid OS sync with outlook and or OS X Contacts?
    My wife hasnt used a smart phone before and I don't want to have to show her everything. is the Android OS fairly easy to learn?

    I see that Flash work's on the Droid , Does it also support HTML5 ?

    We have 2 PC's and 1 MacBook Pro in the house and being able to use either OS to sync would be a bonus.

    Will continue my searching, Just didn't see answers to the above questions.

    search page for "html 5" ...short answer is yes and we're coming up on android 2.2 real soon for the Droid.

    I'm not a mac guy, so does this help with syncing contacts? Sync Google Contacts easily from Mac OS X 10.5.3 | mobile technology

    It does sync with Outlook and gmail contacts and the OS has a slight learning curve but after an hour you're doing well. Mostly things like long-presses on the screen and how to drag things around.

    Welcome to the forums here. You're doing your homework...you'll do fine!

    Hi Again,

    So everything I am seeing on the net is that I must have the contacts in Gmail to sync to the Droid. Really hoping thats not right.

    Wont go into why , But i can only store my contacts on the PC and Phone , Not in a Gmail account.

    Might need to make a trip to the Verizon store to confirm it will integrate with my laptop before the purchase.

    I'd bet a few paychecks there'll be a way to import them onto the Droid X from an Outlook 2007 export file...
