Now that Google has offered the new SDKs for Android 2.0.1 and 1.6, Verizon Wireless says that owners of the Motorola Droid (which runs Android 2.0) should expect their devices to automatically update over the air in the coming weeks.

Um, if you weren't aware Blackberry's also have several programs running in the back ground that you can't close.
I never noticed that with my Moto Droid, had some programs start running by themselves but a task killer app would take care of them.
I tried both the DROID and the Storm 2 at the Verizon store and I think you're better off with the DROID. The DROID is faster and has alot more features, better screen, better camera, multi-tasking, etc, etc. The DROID also allows over-the-air sync,...
Really?! Just look up some of the apps thats you can use to manage your apps. A great one is taskiller. You can set it up to ignore specific apps if you need to keep them open or have it close everything right from a widget on you screen. I owned a...
