    Will compare it to my Palm Pre then decide which one to keep. I plan to customize the droid with a custom kernel and overclock it just as I did with my pre to keep everything on level footing. Hopefully I won't brick it.

    Good luck. The question I have is -- how fast do you need it to go? :)

    So far it's rough. Apps are impressive, but Amzkxkzdzncmsoa

    I think your keyboard went a little crazy there. :D

    Lol, my daughter distracted me and then my wife wanted to play with the pohone and virtual keyboard's autocomplete function. She has never used a capacitive screen b4.

    Anyways, what I wanted to say was that so far the phone is impressive with the apps and app intwgration, like for example when. I went to this page from the email and was told that there is an app for this forum.

    Notifications are a bit of a downer, I was trying to swype them off the screen like on the Pre. So far I respect the droid's configurability and detail but miss WebOS intuitiveness and elegance. More to come later.

    Custom ROM. CyanogenMod has that feature.

    I looked into it after I loaded CM6.1.2 but could not find it. How do I swype single notifications off the notification tab?

    Pull down the notification bar and select(open) each one.

    I thought it was an automatic thing. I could be wrong, though. Let me know and I'll dig through the settings till I find it or someone else who set it up more recently than I did comes along and steals my thunder, um, helps you out. ;)

    Just try pressing it till it lights up and then swipe to the side. I've found I had much better results going all the way across the notification instead of starting halfway, but that may have been updated.
