    It can be app, function, etc. Just whatever you feel is the best part about it.

    I'd have to say the speech recognition on the searches. Impresses the bejeepers out of everybody who sees it go.

    It does kind of feel weird though doing it sometimes in public.

    People look at you like you just said "Wonder Twin Powers, ACTIVATE" or "By the power of Greyskull!" or "Shazam!" or something.

    The best part in my opinion has to be the near seamless integration with my Google digital life - gmail, gcal, reader - all updated in real time and two-way.

    Google maps turn by turn nav is incredible. Coming from an old Mio unit, it's like I've advanced 50 years in GPS technology - and it's free!

    • Huge capacitive screen.
    • Web browsing, speed and ease of navigation
    • Voice Search - amazed at the accuracy
    • Google Navigation - free and it works
    • Android App Store
    Tomorrow makes it 1 week since I got the Droid. Totally impressed.

    I'm impressed with how flexible the OS is. It may be the same thing that makes it a bit difficult to use but it's what makes it so powerful.

    It will play Youtube videos, music, surf the web, run an FTP server... I can't wait for the really powerful apps to show up.

    Well for me there is no one 'best' part so I'll name them in order:

    -high res screen
    -speed
    -browser (although I prefer Dolphin now)
    -google nav / google maps
    -email
    -calendar
    -phone
    -slide out keyboard

    Oh, forgot to mention the impressive OS that is Android. I know I left out a few others.

    The flexibility. Ie, the way it lets me/us set up and use the phone exactly the way I/we want to.

    The entire package, really. There's no one thing that stands out that I don't constantly rave about to all my friends.

    Hell, first day I had it, that's all my Facebook updates consisted of. DROID this, and DROID that.

    ...I think I may have converted a couple o' people.

    as much as i love having a physical keyboard, the ability to never have to worry about my contacts/calendar appointments, the coolness of the facebook integration (if you're into that) and the slick ability to browse the web as if you were at a desktop (something my WinMo phone NEVER felt like), the coolest feature, by far, is the google integration.

    just being able search at any point of the phone and bring up results is amazing, but being able to just start typing something like a local restaurant or lowe's or whatever, and get a result with two buttons that have "get directions" and the phone number has made my life inifinitly easier.

    no more dialing free 800 numbers to scream into the phone because the voice recgonition didn't understand your request, "i seem to be having trouble understanding, maybe we should take a break. *click*!"

    as much as i've had to live without and that i miss from WinMo, the google integration has more than made up for what's missing.

    I think Google Nav and the fact that it's free and worlds better than my standalone GPS device=WIN
