At last count there were over 80,000 Android apps. What are you looking for you can't find? It is probably out there, but the Android store isn't as mature as the Iphone store.

The X is a cool phone. If I could root it I would get one. But I can't, so I'm waiting on the new Samsung Fascinate to hit Verizon.

Nice phone. Enjoy!

Mine was delivered this morning and I've been playing with it all day. The apps you need are out there... you just have to find them. I have better luck browsing the web looking for 'best android apps' or something like that to get others' recommendations.

thats how I've been finding apps myself.  I guess like Sgtmack said, the app store isnt as mature as the one on iphone.  I'm sure with time it will come.

My first smart phone as well, and it's a big upgrade! Few minor bugs here and there, but overall it's very impressive.



I've been playing around with Swype for typing, and it's scary how accurate it is.

X is my first smartphone as well. Been having a blast, and very impressed with it. I haven't had any problems finding useful apps, though. I've got a bunch of cool and useful apps.

Gonna try and get one Friday.

I can't even blame it on the store... this is my first smartphone and I don't even know what I want to do, so I don't know what to look for LOL



But.. it's going to save me a bunch of money. I was going to get a touchscreen Kenwood nav/dvd player for my Mitsubishi... but with the always-updating google GPS, and as much as I've enjoyed listening to Pandora on it all day, I don't really need much more than a 3.5mm front facing aux input on my car stereo.  



I already have some Garmin GPS's around... but won't have much need for them unless I'm driving way out in the middle of nowhere.

Impatiently waiting for mine to come in.  I'm about ready to use my iphone 3G for target practice.

Guess I'm going to pull the trigger on buying one for the wife tomorrow.

Get 'Layar' app, it will blow your mind.

Verizon has a lot of nice phones, but I do contract work for them and the vast majority of the people I have to deal with (mod, sales, analysts) have swayed me from ever, ever having a contract with them...that and their service sucks in all of TN.

I'm up for a new phone and I think I'm going to get the droid X. I have the BB Storm right now and done with it. Not enough of the apps I want. Can anyone tell me something they don't like about it from personal experience?
