I manage a warehouse. I use the X for lots of emails, taking pictures of parts/areas, spreadsheets, wifi hotspot is a must. I also use it for school. I write papers on it, keep my scheduling. I use it for church for calendar and lots of cotacts and info. I cannot complete a day without my X.

I'm a stay at home mom going to school to be a medical transcriptionist. This phone gets used for just about everything. I use it for my schedule and to remind me of doctor's appointments and such for me, hubby and 2 kids. It reminds me to do things around the house and keep track of my grocery list. I use it for financial management as well. I use epocrates for school and will be purchasing a medical dictionary app as well. Or course I also use it for keeping in touch with everyone on Facebook, Twitter, email and texting. As an added bonus, things like ABC flashcards and Dora puzzles to keep the kids occupied when we are out.My phone is....Incredible!

Email, shopping list, media device (music and podcasts with DoggCatcher), car radio replacement (Bluetooth head unit), GPS navigation, a tool at work for network and wireless troubleshooting (I'm in IT), Twitter, facebook, still/video camera, and emergency internet backup with Wifi Tether.
I don't really use the web browser or any games.

I investigate lawyers. I'm in the field 18 out of 20 days per month. So i use it as a lifeline to my office. I get my daily schedule put into my calendar automatically, my dockets are emailed to me, use the camera for photo evidence, use google talk to chat with my office or other coworkers when I don't want to be overheard, use the recorder to take verbal statements from witnesses or lawyers. Of course I use the navigation to get to where I need to be.

Re: What type of job do you guys use your DX for?
I'm a musician, so the media capabilities are great for me. I use dropbox to collaborate with people on the west coast (I'm in the midwest), the video on concert mode is great for recording a complicated part at a rehearsal so someone can see it as well as hear it (the audio quality on concert mode is exceptional for a phone)...of course keeping up with networking on fb and twitter, emails. I actually get 90% of my news from rss feeds on my phone, now that I have something that can handle it.
The only small thing I wish we had that ios has is this killer guitar tab app, it's the only reason I still even touch my itouch anymore, besides maybe a game of civilization: revolutions.
But I digress. I basically do more with this phone than I ever dreamt of doing with a phone!

I work as a Mountain Guide who does a lot of domestic as well as international travel. The DX is my first android phone although I'm very optimistic at how and what it was designed for. Media, media! I use it to listen to music, podcast as well as to watch movies while sitting in my tent or while traveling. Even thought its not a world phone (Verizon rip off rates!) it has wifi and believe it or not, just about every back woods village has wifi at this point, or at least where I go. Im also a gmail user and Google believer and feel the android experience crushes what I have experienced up to this point (Storm on BB and itouch). The itouch was great with traveling (can you say unrestricted Skype Verizon!) but I hated the limited user interface. Summary, Android is pretty sweet for what I do!
