    I got the Droid Friday and have had nothing but problems w/ the Marketplace and Browser. It took muliple trys to get Pandora on my phone and I still haven't been able to listen to a single note. I've been trying for the last hour to load Scoreboard, but nothing downloads. I have 4 bars and wifi connection (2 bars) - Any thoughts on what is causing this?

    As an app developer, I can attest that the traffic to the market has been very high with the new rush of phones. I've read of people getting 50% and in some cases 100% increases in downloads since yesterday.

    My guess is that is the problem. The market is sometimes slow, apps don't download--I have personally waited hours (a long time ago) for an app to download.

    I have a droid, and have had none of these issues (this time).

    Cheers!

    As far as the app store, make sure you are using WiFi (you said you were). I was in a Verizon store Saturday morning at 11am CST and had no problem downloading apps. Probably just the rush of new Droid / Eris owners.

    It could be a bit slow because here in Europe the motorola milestone (aka droid) just came out. Ive being going crazy downloading apps from the App market place too. I can imagine everybody is now here doing the same thing. Anyway it has been nice and fast for me.
