    Well I am probably asking this question in the wrong forum but!! I figured I would ask WHY everyone thinks the DROID is so good? I am a previous iPhone user and considering a Droid or a new Blackberry Curve2!!
    HELP
    lol...


    I am very used to the iPhone and love the apps and have been told that the apps are very similar to the Droid.....

    any pros or cons?? I should know about thanks!!

    First off welcome to the forums DroidDiva : )

    Why is the Droid so good? The list is too long but to make it short and sweet. The device simply works for all my business needs and provides me also with the "play" factor with all the available apps. Lastly the customization is endless and the ability to really make it yours is unmatched in my opinion.

    I was an avid BB user as well and it was GREAT for my business needs but it grew very stale when I saw the offerings that Android could bring.

    It's an all around device that exceeds all my needs and thats why it's so good.

    welcome aboard and I hope you decide to jump in a grab the Droid.

    Enjoy

    I would say iPhone --> Droid is less of a change than iPhone --> BB...it that helps you decide.

    I think he means, get a Droid, as it would be an easier transition. I agree.

    yes. Gmail is integrated into the phone. other accounts are polled...but there is an app for that. K-9 mail, which is available in the android market for free, will convert other POP3 mail accounts to push.

    Thankfully I was just bored browsing all the threads in the forums and ran across this. Great to hear that there's an app better than the default Email app.

    I found K-9 today and installed it. It blows the default email client out of the water. There's not even a real comparison between the two. Why couldn't the default client be this good?

    Just mount the Droid to your computer and create a folder on your SD card then slap the pics in there and whammo. Done.
    And from this thread I heard about k9 and I too love it, its alot better than the default mail app.
