So, I am beginning to really like the Android operating system. I'm now running it on both the tablet and my new phone.

The phone has caused me to start to truly see the advantages of the system. The reason for that is the Android online market. Once I go the phone suddenly the market recognized the tablet as an Android device, so the tablet now can run all of the applications much more intuitively which makes it easier to use.

The other thing I really like about the operating system are widgets. They are nice features that look as good as they function. The widgets alone make me feel that Android might be a bit better than Apple's system. I like that on Android the widget for weather shows you the current weather, where on iOS you must go into the application to see that same type of information.

The only thing that I do not particularly like is the game support. The games on Android aren't nearly as good of quality as on the iPod. But I have found some great ones though, so there is still hope in that department.

All in all, I'm really happy with my new phone and it's made my tablet seem even better. I'm glad I got it instead of the iPhone.

Doug, if you read this, what do you think of your Droid 2 Global? Love it? Hate it? Somewhere in between?

I'm still getting used to it.

Love the interface.
Love that it has a camera and a real keyboard in addition to a virtual one.
Hate the battery life.

And on a side note, it is annoying that it does not seem to pick up my Company Contacts the way the BB does/did especially when identifying an incoming phone call.

There is an app called Good Enterprise that we use to access company email but at least for the moment, the contacts it uses to identify a phone call are my gmail contacts.
