Here's my situation: I need a cell phone badly but I don't want to sign a new contract until I see all the Q1 releases. I want to pick up a phone to use in the meanwhile, while I "weather the storm", see what comes out and how they stack up. Plus Verizon has those LTE network ready devices coming and I don't want to be stuck with a regular 3G device when faster speeds are out there. After all my mediocre experiences, I'm fairly certain I want Verizon to be my primary provider. At first, I was going to pick up a Droid 2 and call it a day, but then I saw that Verizon will be getting an iPhone. I also saw reviews on Youtube of the Samsung Galaxy S GPU and how powerful it was compared to every other powerful Android device (I like playing games) but it has GPS issues. I need service now (I have no phone), but I want to wait until mid February until I at least see what's going to officially come out in the first half of this year before I sign a contract. So: 1) How fast is the Droid 1? Can it play games like Hero of Sparta? 2) How much customization is out there for Droid 1? Does it have Froyo? 3) How smooth is the OS compared to the speed of say, a Galaxy S phone or an iPhone 3GS? 4) Is 256MB of ram enough? With the G1, I needed to use an app called Apps2SD in order to not run out of memory. 5) Can the Droid 1 be used with data to send free text messages/make calls over 3G using Google Voice/Sipgate? I plan on buying a cleared Droid 1 on Craigs List if it's relatively quick and using it with a month-to-month carrier like Cricket until I see what Verizon has planned for the next few months.
