Droid X has officially launched!
One week from today, we should be getting our DX love!!!
In the mean time, I've been trying to get as much info as possible for this phone. I've DL'd all the google programs to make the change over easy.....trying to get used to Gmail.....still like my old school Outlook though; I guess it's just like an old pair of shoes that just fits right.
Also, I even stopped by a SPrint store yesterday to check out the EVo (for size comparisons.) I found the evo to be fine...not too big. So, I am not worried about the size of the DX anymore. Wow.....I really liked the Sense UI though. The weather widget just "pops" right out at you......even the car mode looks fantastic on the EVO. THE DX car mode is downright dull in comparison. lol. Oh well.....there's no way I leave verizon for Sprint!
I even stopped by my local VZW store to get any kind of info......unfortunately, they are way behind on news as compared to the info on these forums.
One week more to go.....and it seems like it's gonna take forever to get here. I have had to bandaid my Blackberry Storm to make it until the DX launch.

I thik the hardest part of leaving RIM will be losing the BBM. It's not that I use BBM to chat with everybody, but I use the "group" function for work. With the group function, all of us in the group can set appointment in the group calendar and it auomatically propogate to everyone else in the group's calendar. So, we always know what is going on and where we all are.
I may be able to utilize the exchange server intregration of the DX to do the same thing. We have exchange at our office, but I don't use it.

I had to setup a gmail account, but I don'tthink I'll use that email address for much. my main email has been a bellsouth.net address for over a decade...and now that bellsouth was taken over by ATT and then ATT merged their email with Yahoo........I essentially have a yahoo email account. That was part of the reason that I didn't get an incredible. The Incredible didn't have push email support for yahoo mail. The Droid X does! Since I coming from a balckberry, I am used to getting my emails instantly....and I like it that way. I am not going to settle for anything less than instant push support.

The android crew is definitely a geekier group than the BB world....and hence the modifications go deeper than in the BB world. I look forward to learning more about modding my phone.....but that's me. I cannot leave well enough alone.

I still feel like Cartman in the Wii episode (Season 10) from a few years back, ready to freeze myself to avoid having to endure the wait, even if it is just another week (Cartman had to wait 3 weeks).
Like others here I am migrating from a BB, a Tour to be exact. I use G-mail almost exclusively so my contacts and emails shouldn't be a problem with the move. I do have some BBM contacts but I am slowly urging them to download GTalk if they haven't already and to start talking to me on that.
As for app preparation, my wife just got her DInc last week so I've been exploring the Market a bit, testing out different apps and then deleting them before she has a chance to yell at me."In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move." ~ D.N.A.
