    The tremendous growth that DroidForums.net has seen is a true testament to the need on the Verizon network for a fully-featured and bleeding edge smart phone.

    The huge marketing campaign kicked it off and now the product is filling the void. We have a large number of ex-iPhone users, ex-Blackberry users, ex-Palm users and ex-WindowsCE users.

    The Android based Droid is the perfect fit for those of us looking to upgrade, have an extensible platform and the hardware to take advantage of the open Operating System.

    In addition, the rest of the world is already taking note. We've made our first "large" media appearance with an article on PCWorld.com (seen here: Birth of the Droid Fanboy - PC World - Thanks Fegarem for the tip)

    We hope this is just a sign of the things to come... more media, more fans and more discussions. As Bogart once said... "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."

    I actually found this forum through that article from PCWorld. Planning to pick up my Droid after work. Had a tough time making decision between this and the iPhone as my Sony Ericsson just died.

    Transferred numbers from several phones to Droids today, all phones transferred well, my Samsung Omnia did not cooperate. The file it created to put on SDCard was missing something. Put contacts from Omnia to non-smart phone, then from non-smart phone to Droid -- worked. Just figures, successful with everyones but my own. Perserverance prevailed!!!!!!!! Thank you VERIZON, it's about time.
