Hello, everyone. My name is Donald. I live in the USA, residing in California. I joined this forum because out of the other Android-related forums, I found this to be most condensed and specific... partly because this forum was the first one that I saw that narrowed searches and forums down based on phone manufacurer and model - definitely makes things easier when it comes down to specifics. As the Intro thread suggests, I am a complete newcomer to the Android community. I'm a longtime AT&T customer and I have little plans to change out from AT&T, unless someone provides extreme reason to switch out. Until then, I am happy where I'm at. And so, I am interested in one of AT&T's more recent Android powered phones, the Motorola Atrix. I've been window shopping for the last few months and just haven't made the move to buy yet due to fear that Atrix might not be what I'm looking for. It's my impression that smart-phones are the new norm for cellular phones these days, and although I may only access 15% of a smart-phone's potential, I figure "why not?"; if the power is there, why-not get it. Why settle for something that fits exactly my needs. Why not get something that has added power or features to it? So, I choose the Atrix. Through my short lurkings here on the androidforums.com, I have already realized how Android releases are referenced (ie. GingerBread, Froyo, Ice Cream Sandwich, etc) - and quite amusing if I may say so . To provide a gauge as to "how much I think I understand" when it comes to Android, as of current, it is my first time ever hearing the term "sideloading" used. I've heard of "bootloading", but that's a rather obvious term. Other features, tips, tricks, and "cool" things about Android, i hope to learn here on the forums. Nevertheless... here I am. I will lurk, and I will most likely make limited contribution to the androidforums.com as I'm just not that versed in Android yet. One of the other big reasons I want Android is to go opposite of iPhone, although I recognize Apple and iPhone's success and prowess, I would like to go against what is considered "pop" and try to see if I can figure out the more mysterious world of Android. Hi... my name is Donald - help me figure out Android, please.
