I Bought The Droid And I Think It Changed My Life

Ok, so I am not kidding – this was definitely a GREAT decision. Did it change my life? It’s too early to tell. But BOY am I excited about the new Droid.


I’ve been a Blackerry user for about 4 years. When the iPhone came out I didn’t even consider it. I was like – I need a BUSINESS  PHONE. I don’t want to just play games. No keyboard? No me! I run all my sites using my phone when I am out of the house – and I’ve heard that the service that comes with the iPhone isn’t the greatest. Wasn’t worth the risk.

But then… the Droid came out. And I kept reading about how great it was. And I kept meeting friends in the industry who purchased the phone and were REALLY happy with their decision.

And then a $100 rebate became available… and I bit down hard.


I just ran to the mall today and picked one up. In minutes I saw how much time I wasted with the Blackberry. This phone is the best of both worlds. It’s touch screen capabilities, Verizon wireless service and automatic email push are all I need to keep me going.

Unreal! And if you are a social media fool like I am – Twitter and Facebook are unbelievable with the Droid. 100% better than on the Blackberry. I don’t want to completely shoot down the Blackberry because I really did have many happy years with the company, but the Droid is my new best friend.

I wish they were freaking sponsoring me for this damn post!! Oh well – I rather get the word out than sit quietly because I’m not on payroll. LOL!

If you are in the market – go and check this phone out.

    I've been hearing really great things about these. I'm too obsessed with my Blackberry. But, if they had the Droid available through my carrier, I'd probably give it a try. LOL

    I should try to find a video that shows the differences in the two phones.
