    I'm no lefty, but with my droid I am!
    Any others like me? Or any lefties in general using their droid?

    I'm right handed and usually hold my droid in the left hand so I can use my right hand to use the keyboard using swype. Am I holding it "lefty"?

    I do the same thing. I think the OP was referring to typing the letters in.

    Wait a minute. I don't hold mine in one hand at all. I hold it with both hands in landscape and use my index finger to type with.

    Funny never even thought about it before.

    Southpaw here. Most of the time the Droid goes in the right with the left index finger doing the work. But left-handed folks tend to be more ambidextrous than righties, either as a result of brain wiring or being forced to adapt to a right-handed world so I sometimes switch hands.

    I am right handed, but hold mine mainly in my left hand. However, I have held it right handed and typed with the left.........

    I think I am just confused, either that or its just that easy to do both. :)

    Mine holds itself.

    But on those occasions when it is sad and needs to be held, it's in my left hand.

    about equal amount in both hands for me, just depends on what I'm doing. My hands are large enough so almost always 'use' the device with the hand that's holding it. I use Swype with both hands as well (again, normally with the hand that is holding the device). Occasionally when Swype isn't accurate I'll have to use both hands but that rarely happens with the new beta. As much as I used to love landscape mode after getting used to using the device with one hand I rarely go into landscape now.
