  1. The Motorola DROID continues to present new possibilities every day. We’ve had it for about 10 months and We’ve had a Blackberry attached to my body due to the fact September 1998. Getting connected is often a crucial aspect of my existence so I’m generally reachable by family members and co-workers. I am a bit addicted for the Market for DROID Applications. If the device had limitless memory I would test the capacity. I believe this OS would be the way of the long term and intend to grow with all of you to learn it via and by way of. Thanks for the write-up.
