Do your research before jumping in...

The Droid has a lot of limitations that aren't apparent on first impressions. One of the most limiting ones is that apps can only be installed on the internal RAM, which maxes out at 512 MB, and reportedly only half of that is available to apps. Yes... you can use SD cards to expand the memory to as much as 32 GB, but you can't run apps from those cards. This will SEVERELY limit the number of apps you can install, and you can forget installing anything more complex and graphically intense if they require more space than what is "allowed". One other downside to the Droid (and any Verizon smartphone), is that the CDMA networking that Verizon uses does not allow for simultaneous voice and data usage. Imagine being on the phone with a friend, and you need/want to check movie times or sports scores while talking. You can do it with the iPhone or any other smartphone on AT&T... but not on the Droid or any Verizon phone. There's much to like about the Droid, but a lot to dislike. Do your research before you jump in, then are stuck with that doubled Early Termination Fee that Verizon is planning to stiff their customers with soon. If they had any faith in the Droid, you'd think they wouldn't have to do this to discourage people from leaving.
