The new “man” in my life

He’s dark and lean, speaks to me in a deep, dangerous voice and dares me to adventure where I’ve never dared before. He’s Droid X and he’s the new love in my life. I shouted out my love on my personal Facebook page and now I must shout it out to the Gen Plus world. If you are into the “smartphone” technology, or even if you are a cell phone user, by now, you’ve heard something about the new Droid X. Seriously, I have no clue how it works, but it is a piece of genius and gives you a glimpse into what the future holds in handhelds.

What is being hailed as fantastic are the video capabilities (yes, great), the larger screen, the HD camera (really good), the ability to upload to your television set, plus a lot of the features that the iPhone boasts — touch technology that is really, really good and makes you feel like YOU are the reporter on CNN playing with the interactive flat panel.

But there a couple of features that I’m insane over. You can have an app for just about anything and more are being created by the minute — which means that any glitches will have a fix-it app in about a heartbeat. (There is a big challenge with searching and sorting email other than GMail, and I’m not too keen on the apps out there yet, but there will be a better one soon, I’m positive.)

And there is a feature called “Swype”, where you drag your finger from letter to letter to type your text or email rather than finger-type it. It’s extremely cool once you get the hang of it and it is pretty fast.

There are SEVEN home screens so you can order your life just the way you like it. It can almost function like a laptop on the road and certainly, for someone like me, who is away from the desk most of the day, yet needs to stay connected to my team in the field and clients trying to reach me, this is the perfect smartphone.

Short of creating long documents or complicated spreadsheets, I can do pretty much anything else with this sleek machine. Now if only he could dance.

Here’s a CNET preview pre-release:

    1. Haha. What I meant was that I had no clue how the “Android” technology worked –it is completely different from the RIM Blackberry technology. The Droid X is like a blank canvas and you add in applications to customize how you want your smart phone (as in, smarter than me) to function. The user’s manual, is, in fact, just a drop in the bucket of what this technology can do as more and more apps are added to the market every day. It’s like the i-Phone on steroids. Amazing.

      If you are a Blackberry user, however, it takes a bit of time to get used to the limitations of the email program. Again, there are mail apps to help that function, but many Blackberry users, accustomed to the versatility of their email program, will be very frustrated.
