    So after a few months of considering it I decided to finally break out the debit card. It should arrive on my doorstep on Monday! :)

    I'm actually quite pumped.. I'm an avid forum poster (I frequent IGN hourly) and so I decided to look into a Droid forum and sure enough - here it is!

    A little bit about me, I live in Atlanta, Georgia. I'm an avid PS3 gamer. I'm married and I have one child and another on the way. :)

    So here's to getting to know you all better.. See you all around! :)

    :welcome: to the Droid Forums. Well, it appears you're going to have your hands full. Between your family and your Droid you probably will have little time for yourself.

    Not trying to discourage you at all, just be prepared for an adventure. Good luck to you and let us know how you're doing on Monday when your Droid arrives.:)

    Welcome!

    Spend as much time as possible between now and the time your Droid arrives with you wife and child. If you visit IGN hourly once your Droid arrives you will spend the other 23 hours a day on this forum

    Welcome aboard. First smart phone? It was for me, back in November and I haven't put the thing down yet.

    They should make a new commercial:

    Sooo <insert name here>, you've bought a Droid...what are you going to do next? (said as the customer walks out of a Verizon store).

    thoughtful pause with a far away look and then blur out to:

    Fast forward through some geocaching, game playing, gps navigating, websurfing, multiple skins, where'd I park my car, hanging a picture with the level app, book reading, music playing, light saber dueling (heck, we already had to get permision for "droid" right?), movie watching, guitar playing, etc, etc, etc.

    Congrats and welcome. I was in your shoes not long ago, anxiously awaitng the UPS man. I've got two kids myself, ones a freshman @ Wake Forest and the other is a senior in high school, so I know about being busy. You'll love your Droid just like we all do.

    Yup, it sure is my first smart phone. It took me this long to talk my wife into the fact that I need one of these!

    I love geocatching! Is there an app for that? :)

    Also.. I did not know you could put books on it.. That's excellent news for me!

    Excellent! Thanks for the reply.. I know for a fact that Monday is going to kill me. Especially because I wake up at 4am every day to go to the gym.. I'm going to have to find something that will take my mind off of it!

    There are a couple geocaching apps, you're in luck!

    Aldiko is the android reader app I use for books. You can import your current ones into it too. Calibre is an open source tool that will convert various ebook formats into the format Aldiko uses. Search the web for that to install on your pc.

    Welcome to the club JeriKu. Funny; I live near Atlanta and I just signed up to this forum yesterday and ordered my Droid the day before. It should get here by Monday. We're in the same boat. :icon_eek: I'm married w/ 3 kids and I'll probably get a PS3 by 2nd quarter.

    Welcome to the crazy Land of Droid Forums, JeriKu! Once the Droid arrives, kiss your wife and child and tell them you'll be sane again in about a week. Heck, I bet you're gonna kiss that delivery man, too! Let us know how you feel when you're actually holding that new Droid in your hands!

    Excellent! I'll definitely try out Aldiko. :)

    So do you already have a PS3, thus enabling your PSN i.d.? :) .. and that's awesome about the coincidence! I live right south of Atlanta, in Henry county.

    I most certainly will! I'll probably be really upset by the time FedEx arrives. They usually get to my house right before the deadline (4:30pm) :(

    .. and just as a general question.. I notice a lot of Emulator/Rom threads on this board.. Is that against any TOS for the Droid or is it.. actually alright to use them? :)

    Holy craps, we are up to 40k members!!!

    Download Beautiful widgets as soon as you get the phone, it is by far my favorite app.

    @Blazin, Agreed! :)

    I'll add you as soon as I get home. Before I fire up Heavy Rain. :p

    In fact, I'll make a note on it right now with my Droid! :icon_ banana:
