I am not usually an early adopter, but with a new every 2 credit I figured why not. Here is my list of things I would improve/change.

1. Battery life - i currently only get 24 hours on a single charge. This is much less than what I would have expected.
2. Docking station - should have ports for speakers.
3. Signature line- should have a way to add a signature to outgoing e-mails (gmail has this, just not for Exchange).
4. Spell check on outgoing e-mails.
5. Bluetooth/navigation errors. When I had on bluetooth and then tried nav, it kept dropping and then picking up bluetooth in my car. It seems this is odd.
6. Ability to make calls with bluetooth handset.
7. Docking station Droid does not fit with plastic case attached. Therefore you have to take off case.
8. Better keyboard. I keep pressing the wrong keys, and then Droid doesn't auto correct.
9. More options with email. My Motorola Q worked really well with an Exchange server. Motorola add the Q software for email. Software works o.k., but it doesnt allow for signatures, combining Gmail with Exchange accounts, and doesn't add tasks.
10. Ability to get rid of Facebook, Twitter and other apps that I would not use for business.
11. Ability to customize the docking station screen.
12. Better way to view upcoming appointments. The Q displayed the next few critical appointments.
13. The Droid doesn't integrate the Gmail option with the Exchange server. You can choose to keep them seperate, or can combine them. When you combine them you disable some of the nice Gmail app features. So two clicks to get emails, or one click.

I largely agree with 2-13, but 24 hours on a single charge is phenomenal. Most posters (including me) are getting half that or less, depending on usage.

I'm predicting lots of 3rd party docking stations and speakers in the next few months.

only problem i have is not the true instant push email like BB... Even set on 5 mins, it rarely forces mail every 5 mins, nor does it always notify you... which is annoying..

1. Battery life... I would love to get 24 hours but I'm a heavy user, just make sure you put it on the charger every night I have been doing that for years.
7. My guess is that Seidio will have the innocase and dock that will fit coming out soon. You can sign up for emails on there new droid products. IMO they make the best cases.
12. Appointments... I to love to see upcoming appointments so I found a widget "Pure Calendar" which will allow you to make an agenda view with many different sizes that works great. I have a full screen on one of my three. The best part is that it's free.

I have been just using the calender widget on screen 3 Shows the next appointment, and clicking it gives me the whole day.

Yeah I noticed the battery life on mine, even with HEAVY use the past 24 hours, has been majorly reduced by the screen... it's taken up like 70% of the usage
