I'm an iPhone user of all 3 generation of iPhones. I've become bored with the iPhone, even though it is a fantastic device. I roamed into a Verizon store and I decided to try out the Droids. I picked up the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Eris. I have a couple of questions that I could really use some insight on and any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

1. I've noticed that the speed of the HTC Eris is a bit slower than the Moto Droid. How can I allocate the placement of all of my apps (or as many apps and utilities as possible) to be stored on my SD card and not the flash memory of the device. I'm wanting to keep as much on the SD card as possible in hopes of keep the processing of the phone from app to app to texting to web browsing as seamless and quick as possible. Any thoughts?

2. What is the best music client to use with the HTC Droid? I believe that Apple has the market well in behind them in regards to ease of use when it comes to the music department. I believe that I am going to get a Rhapsody account and pay $12.99 a month for unlimited music. Is the only way to play the music on the Droid, is to connect via USB cable and manually drag the music from Rhapsody to my SD Card on the phone? And then what is the best music player for a Droid? I've read the reviews on the Rhapsody App for the Droid and it gets 1 star out of 5 and seems to not allow OTA music downloads directly to the phone. Is this correct?

I apologize for the length of post, but I'm really interested in making this experience work and I'm willing to put in the work now so that the Droid experience become fluid and easy. Please provide some insight.

2 more questions.

1. How do you delete preloaded apps that you don't want? I understand that you can hold the app and drag it into the trash can, but this doesn't seem to delete the apps that were preloaded onto the OS. Anyway to get rid of those?

2. If an email attachment comes through on an email such as a word doc, is the only way to view it, is to save it to your SD card and then exit your email client and open up an app such as Quick Office and view it that way? Is there a way to view it directly from the email while in your email client?

the thing with android is most of the apps are tiny!
i have 30apps + installed and still have 103mb free (yesterday it said i had 95mb free...)
so if you install them to the device its not going to hurt. it wont speed the device up storing to SD. you more than likely had a store demo which WILL be slow. i come from windows mobile, an omnia owner with a 624mhz processor to a 528mhz processor and this phone is blazing fast to me!

for music, download HTC sync (google it) then drag your music/movies/videos to it then just plug your phone up to your PC and it`ll sync what you like.

to delete apps just go to market place, click on the app you want to delete and it will show a screen with an uninstall button.

havent tried an attachment yet but i read that you have to scroll to the bottom of the email (make sure it doesnt say "more") an you should see the little paper clip and you can open it.
