Well the CTIA (wireless association conference) was last week and, as one would expect, Android was the hottest topic for the upcoming year.  It seemed nearly every carrier and every manufacturer (sans Apple) was making an Android device.  It’s good news, really.  Now people have a choice and now there’s healthy competition.  It’s also good for those of us who refuse to switch to AT&T’s crappy service JUST so we can have the iPhone.  So for those of you like myself who are VERY satisfied with the Droid on Verizon, here’s some more apps (some that “used” to be iPhone only) to look forward to in the very-near future:

I’ve done it.  I’ve jumped on the smartphone bandwagon. For the last year I’ve been debating the pros & cons of owning a smartphone. On one hand, I didn’t think I had any real need to have internet at my fingertips all day long; On the other hand, my schedule had gotten busier and busier and the need for my family to know each other’s schedules “on the fly” was ever increasing. Now we no longer have scheduling conflicts, we communicate better, and now no more phone calls to get “directions”.

So now that I have a DROID, I thought I’d list my list of favorite android apps to get you started. I’ve spent hours researching the best of the best and well here’s what I’ve come up with:
