    k let me set some things straight.
    I currently use iphone 3gs
    I like 90% of the iphone 3gs user interface.
    I like 30% of ATT's service (when I get that much).

    I prefer open and free software. Android has a lot of potential.

    I am not a fanboy either way. VZ/Tmob/ATT/Sprint apple/google

    Is there much room for optimization of the screen scrolling rate of the droid? when i played with one at the VZ store, it did not impress me as much as i hoped. the scrolling seems jerky. not something i want to see every time i interact with my phone. Does it get worse with more background processes running? Are the store demos bloated from being demos?

    I usually optimize my windoze and linux os's to run more efficiently. How possible is this for android 2.0?

    thanks

    Welcome.

    There aren't any settings on the Droid for scrolling, but I don't think its much different than the apples. (I have an ipod touch). I think it may have been a bad demo.

    I highly recommend the Droid. I considered the iphone since the systems are in place for my ipods, but decided to go android because of the more open platform- file and memory access, customization etc. that's difficult on the ipod even after jailbreaking.

    edit: your last Q will probably require rooting, (JB'ing) which hasn't happened yet on the Droid, so...uh... get to work and let us know how it's done ok?

    scrolling on my device never really lags or anything
    you can turn off window animations which i didnt really see necessary, i didnt really gain anything... there wasnt really much more speed to gain anyway

    i use taskiller very rarely, most of the time ill see 33-49mb free but even then i have no issues with speed...
    only after im done with something like pandora or google nav i will kill all apps...just to be sure its not still running somewhere

    all in all, it is a fast device
    and not a "digitally clueless beauty queen" like what you have in your hands now ;)

    My Droid scrolls very fast with no lag at all. I was with ATT now with Verizon and enjoying faster internet and no dropped calls. Can you say that for ATT and the Iphone?

    I noticed a slight improvement in scrolling across the multiple desktops when I started using the app Home++ as my desktop replacement. Not that it was bad before, but it is smoother and looks much nicer now. (and it was free)
