    this seems to be the common denominator.. same thing for me, i was waiting for the S2 and then the buzz about android. Ive always loved android but never owned one since im loyal to verizon wireless. A good buddy has a G1 that is rooted with a custom rom and its absolutly amazing. He is also switching from tmobile to verizon on friday just for this phone.

    Probably the search function......

    One search box that scans the web, contacts, messages, etc. How cool is that?

    Most of all... the email capibility. I'm a volunteer with the Metro Fire CERT Program and as the volunteer coordinator, needed the ability to send emails to large numbers of people in preselected groupls with a large signature and disclaimer statement and to do it BCC meant only one thing.. Blackberry doesn't. iPhone doesn't, but DROID DOES...
    After that there's a whole heap of reasons, but that's where it started.

    This may sound stupid, but the first time I heard "ddrrooiidd" on the commercial, I knew I had to have this phone, and have loved it ever since!:)
