    Hello all. I am proud to say that I will be picking up my Droid X tomorrow and tossing my Blackberry in the trash (ok, not really).

    I am definitely excited to be joining the Droid community. I have heard nothing but praise. I have had enough of the Blackberry - it sure isn't the phone for me - and I am ready to move on to bigger and better things!

    Just wanted to do a quick intro and say that I'm glad I made the switch and hope to contribute to this site as much as possible.

    Also, I had a quick question. I understand the X will be receiving the Froyo 2.2 update sooner or later, and that it has the ability to play Flash...

    Well I currently reside in Los Angeles and I am a die-hard Lakers fan. I will be going to school in Northern California in the spring semester. I wanted to ask if it is possible to view live streams for games? i.e. atdhe, justin.tv, etc.

    Thanks again everyone, and once again I am proud to be here.

    :welcome:

    yes when 2.2 is rolled out it will have flash with it. if you can find a website that streams it, it will work on the DX (although a few sites seem to block it, like Hulu)

    Are there any apps/games/etc. that you recommend for a College student or just in general?

    Thank you again all. After a bit of confusion and delay from Verizon, I was able to pick up my Droid X earlier today and I am in love with it.

    Does anyone recommend any cool applications that I should download? Please let me know. Thanks!
