At the other forum I visit the Droid is getting very good reviews from former BB users. What they seem to like are the browser, first and formost. They say it kills the Storm. Next is the app selection available. Next is the screen resolution, but some are more in love with that than others. The biggest gripe is the email. Seems if you use Gmail you're fine, but with Yahoo you've got a problem, and with POP3 it's OK but not as good as a BB. Most don't really use the physical keyboard but they put up with it. Form factor-wise the phone's kind of a brick but not many really complain about that a lot. Battery usually lasts at least a full day. Sounds like a player in the smartphone market. I tried one several times at my local store and it seems OK, nice big screen. I'm sure I could live with it. Verizon kicks butt where I live, way better than ATT. IMO ATT is the Achilles heel of the iPhone.
