Android newbie here, so please bear with me. Though I have yet to use an Android phone, I follow most of the tech blogs and listen to a ton of podcasts on the iPhone and Android just to keep up with the latest and greatest. I bought an iPhone 4 on day 1 and really like it. But I am very sick and tired of AT&T and may be willing to part with my iPhone 4 and try a Droid X. In fact, I have a Droid X preordered and will hopefully be able to try them both side by side for a few days before I have to decide whether to return the iPhone 4 or keep it. While I am waiting, I thought I'd register here and ask some initial questions: 1) Right now, I have preordered with Best Buy. But I really only want to do a 1-year contract, even if it means paying $270-300 instead of $200. Do we have confirmation yet on whether Best Buy will new subscribers sign a 1 year and how much it will be? 2) I read in a couple of places that in order to use the Mobile Hotspot feature of the Droid X, you really need to have a "POW-AH". I have no idea what that is? I was hoping to perhaps get the $20/mo hotspot plan and then cancel my 3G subscription on my iPad. I know I don't go over 2 GB of data per month on the iPad (mostly use Wifi) and then I could use the Mobile Hotspot on other devices too. 3) I understand that Verizon's network is very good, but I'm a little concerned about the upcoming changes. First of all, what kind of download and upload speeds can I expect on Verizon in an area with good 3G reception? I will most likely notice a decrease in speed compared to my iPhone 4 (which uses HSPA), but I will also most likely notice better coverage (which is more important to me). But what about Verizon's upcoming LTE plans that is supposedly rolling out late this year or early next year? This will require new phones, right? That's sort of why I'm thinking of only doing a 1 year contract, so that I can upgrade to a new phone next year. And if they DO get the iPhone 4, then I could always upgrade to that as well. 4) Is there an easy and convenient way to manage and listen to podcasts Android (and specifically the Droid X)? Right now, I use iTunes to subscribe to podcasts and sync them to my iPhone 4. Is there a similar solution for Android where it automatically update podcasts and syncs them to the phone? Does it remember where you left off when you continue listening at a later time? Can you have it only sync the most recent episodes of podcasts? 5) I've read that battery life on the Droid X is pretty good already, but I'm a pretty heavy user, so I'll most likely buy an extra battery. I read somewhere there is a larger capacity battery - will that be available at launch and how much is it supposed to be? Is it pretty easy and painless to switch batteries? Thanks a bunch! Sorry for all the questions!
