Full Hooked on Droid Blog



Welcome to Hooked On Droid!

As a former Blackberry junkie, I was a little hesitant to upgrade to the Motorola Droid when given the opportunity from Verizon. Let me tell you, I'm so glad I made the change.

Even though my Blackberry was an incredible friend for a few years, there is no comparison. The android system essentially gives you a freakin' Linux computer in the palm of your hand.

The apps available for the Droid and other android smartphones are second only to the iPhone. But the Droid wins on one important level: you can get a droid on the Verizon system. (Okay, now the iPhone is available on Verizon so it may become a simple preference thing). And say what you will, THERE ISN'T A BETTER WIRELESS NETWORK. (Of course, they make you pay through the nose for it, but some things are just worth the extra money.)

So, in the course of learning how to use my Droid, and sharing with other users, I continually find new and cool apps and methods for doing all sorts of things (mostly for free). Check back often as I share ways to connect your Droid to your laptop, watch current movies and cable shows on your Droid, surf the web faster and cooler than your friends and a lot more.
