I am a 33 year old female who has used Palm Smartphones for several years now. I was ready for a new phone and decided that the Droid would fit my needs better then an iphone (plus I didn't want to change carriers) while the phone doesn't look "girly", I think it looks sleek and suits me. I don't decide what phones, computers, or other gadets to buy based on how they look, I decide based on how they preform. I tend to research my electronic purchases online and I actully found this forum before I bought the Droid. I used the information gained here to decide if it would be the right phone for me. I must say that I am absolutly thrilled with my Droid and have no plans to ever go back to Palm.
