    First of all, I am a convert from the Windows Mobile platform. When I saw the new Phone 7, I saw it as basically a big step up from where they were, but still comes nowhere close to the Android platform. That is too bad, as Microsoft was light years ahead of eveyone else several years ago, but they just slept on it.

    And I am not a MS fanboy, and always have to have the best... So here I am, with my shiny new Droid X in hand.

    Now, that said, I am not exactly a newbie when it comes to Android. I have worked with them for a little over a year, did some development etc. But the Droid X is my first personal device.

    In closing: This is one #%@## sweet piece of hardware!

    Welcome to the forum!! there's some rather interesting stuff going on with the X right now. Take a minute to browse thru some of the stickie threads in the Droid General Discussions thread, and then head over to the DX section of the forum. Don't hesitate to ask questions, but most of all - enjoy!! :)

    Yes even after last saturday. I am not one to jump on an off the band wagon. I actually have two college football teams that I love and support. My other team has actually done worse of late and that is ............ Michigan. But I have to admit the Alabama loss hurt more. They just did not have their heads in the game. My husband spent the whole weekend totally ticked off after that game.

    Yeah that is why I am torn between the two. Its funny my avatar here is Big Al and the Alabama A but on google my avatar is the Michigan M logo. I was born in Michigan and followed them during the Bo Schembeckler days and then loved Lloyd Carr. But I went to the University of Alabama so I have loyalties there too. Its rumored that the opening game of the 2012 season will be Alabama v. Michigan. I of course will be going no matter where it is played my problem will be choosing who to root for and what colors to wear. Hubby of course grew up in Alabama so he will be decked out in Crimson........
