    I haven't got my phone yet but waiting to pick it up soon when they get it.

    I found the android market app site, but it lacks detail about the app.

    As of now I am asking you guys what apps you recommend on my new phone.

    Thanks!

    Let's put it this way...

    a) I agree about the market website having no info, it needs it.
    b) I have probably installed 100+ apps on my device since I got it.
    c) Currently I have 41, so listing them is a lot of effort, and you might not even care.

    So a quick summary:
    Top Game - Dojo Cubed, wonky controls that take some getting used too, but multiplayer awesomeness

    Calc - HandyCalc, very slick, and on-screen keypad

    Weather - Weather Channel, videos, nice display

    Music - Imeem, like Pandora for streaming music or use TuneWiki for playing your sdcard music

    Utility - Power Manager has helped me manage my battery life very well

    Other good ones:
    aTrackDog - keeps apps updated (like Windows Update)
    Astro - can back all your apps to the sdcard
    Missed Call - cool to manage the colored LED light
    PF Voicemail+ - Visual Vmail
    Ringroid - create your own ringers, notifications, and alert sounds
    SMSPopup -Newest fave -pops up full txt in a semi-transparent window.

    no, a softkey will come with the next update.

    and for facebook, just go to the market app and then search and type in "facebook". Top of the list

    ChompSMS has a nice iPhone-esque touchscreen keyboard.
