Are you coming from Blackberry? (4 others also!)
Hello my name is Baconator,
Welcome to Android! This is to you new users coming from Blackberry. I have noticed many new Android users are old Blackberry users. I wanted to give you some information that might help you. Click on the link below about switching platforms.
-> Jumping from Blackberry to Android <-
Also here is information on how to get started with android. ->Getting Started With Android<- and ->New Android Device<- (These two links are NOT JUST for people coming from blackberry they are for anyone making the switch)
Tell me if this information helps you. How do you like Android. And congrats on the switch.
Join the conversation on YOUR android device. Find your devices' forum or tell me what your device is and I will find it for you. Have fun with Android!

I am a BB convert as of the new year. That was a great read. Thanks for the post.
BTW, I am greatly enjoying my Fascinate Galaxy S. There is absolutely no comparison between this little beauty and my BB Storm. I definitely upgraded and so glad I did.
I am still finding my way with all the little nuances of the phone. Fortunately I can find much help in here.If Patience is a virtue, I would love to meet HER!

Fro-Yo - Android 2.2 I have no clue because I never got to use it.
Gingerbread -android 2.3 Nexus S only right now. adds support for NFC and no sd card. Bugs newest version that is available right now. Smooth nicer and I like it.
Honeycomb - Android 3.0 Brings support for tablets. Made for tablet but there will be amobile version. Not much that I know

Thanks for the post! I've been with Blackberry every since the 8700c was the newest and greatest! Ive had every GSM BB there has been minus the Pearl Flip. As a Linux lover Ive been interested in Android since the first time I saw the G1. Ill be joining Sprint this month and most likely getting the Evo unless something better is announced on Feb 7th. Looking forward to giving it a try!

Nice article, I wish I've read it before switching Anyway, T-Mo has OTA backup for contacts and once I put my SIM in the new phone my contacts popped up in seconds. And nice thing about it, it kept all the contact's info: number, email, birthday, facebook, etc. I had a gmail account for years, but I still use Yahoo mail as primary, which for my good surprise it's pushed on my android. So the only worry I had when I jumped platforms it's gone. I love calendar sync, my only gripe is that android does not have phone auto turn-off and on. With the battery not lasting as much, you should thing this feature is a no brainer.
