what kind of armband do you use for running with the Motorola Droid and do you like it?
search would have turned this up
thanks but i saw that one already but wanted to start a fresh one. duct tape was not one of my choices.
well, there are a ton of other mentions besides duct tape
I use a Belkin case originally designed for the iPod 5G which has been retired as my listening device of choice. The Droid fits snug and I don't have to spend any extra money.
Along the lines of the duct tape option, I ran on Tuesday in a downpour. I put the Droid in a sealed ziplock sandwich bag and played the music through the external speaker. Aside from the inevitable fear of dropping it, it worked great.
So i cant wait any longer for a droid armband. I went to Staples and picked up a "Griffin Strealine" for $17.99. its for the iphone 3gs just a little tight but works. and thats with a case around my droid (not naked)
The botton home buttons are a little tricky to use but it does work though.

Well I posted in the other thread but now that I have had the TuneBelt for a while, I can definitely recommend it. Stays on my arm just fine while running, I can operate the controls OK, it's snug but I can still get the Droid inside just fine. Very happy with the purchase. I am using CardioTrainer to map and record my runs.
