    Welcome to the forum and Android, my suggestion would be to read as much as you can before your device shows up, this forum is full of information

    Yeah I have been all over this site looking for things about the droid 1. This site has a wealth of information. I've been going from post to post trying to absorb as much as I can about this phone and the Android OS. I am coming from using a LG Voyager for almost 2 years now so this is a whole new thing for me haha.

    I do have one question since my phone hasn't arrived yet. Is there a hotmail app that I can use to check my email? I don't have a gmail address as I have used my hotmail address for 5+ years now.

    it does have an email client built in but in my opinion it is not that great, there are third party clients to choose from, just so you know it is going to be almost impossible to own a Google phone without a Google account, not that you have to use their email but you will be prompted to create one as the purchasing of apps is done through Google checkout, and so many other things...remember aside from Android this is a Google based Device

    That will save a bit of time when your phone does arrive
