    How does the Moto Droid X match up to the Archos 5 running Android? I've got the Droid and the Archos 5. But bought the Archos mainly as a mp3 player and book reader. My Droid is a great mp3 player but every time it is in my pocket the slider moves and I have to get it out slide the lock and hit play again. Very annoying. Also you get all the notices, such as emails, texts, calendar reminders, etc making thier alarms through the songs. This is why I searched out Archos as a media player. But it really isn't pocketable. You can but it is large. The Droid X is larger then Droid (4.3 vs 3.7) but still a little smaller than Archos 5".
    I've done so much research for the last 2 weeks, I'm going silly trying to remember everything and what's what. So has anyone checked both these out and think they are pretty much the same thing only a little smaller screen?
    Just curious as I'm leaning towards returning Archos and going with Droid X. Hopefully at some time they will make an app that will shut off everything but phone calls while music player is playing.
    Thanks for your input.

    I agree with on the app. I'm one that would pay for somthing like that. I for ordered my x last week because of the 720p video and video editor installed which will see a lot of use but as far as the archos you have to have wifi for other apps like pandora and last fm where the x will have 3g and fmradio for even more abiltys. Now a new comer that a lot of people over look is the 5inch dell streak which is cdma or gsm phone as well as a media tablet and dvr staation. So I say it a personal prefrence. Just my 2 pennies
