I’m not usually an early adopter of technology, with video game systems being the exception.  I’ve been very lucky in the past that the things I have bought day one, or close enough to it, has always turned out to be good.  This is true for my ventures in Android.

This is true for my ventures in Android.

Two years ago, in December of 2009, my contract was up with Verizon (I had the Voyager) and it was time I got a smartphone.  But what to do?  I could switch to AT&T and get the iPhone 3GS, get a blackberry or windows phone, or try out something that’s been getting publicity called Android.  Why was it being talked about all of a sudden?  Well, the Droid was about to come out and it was the first phone with Android 2.0, a fully

Why was it being talked about all of a sudden?  Well, the Droid was about to come out and it was the first phone with Android 2.0, a full touchscreen enabled, very user-friendly open source OS by Google.  The Droid looked amazing, so I ended up spending my money on it.  I was happy right away, even before I knew of the wonders of Rooting!  A friend of mine, Jeff, also picked up the phone, so we went through the adventures in Android side by side.  By March, I realized the potential of a rooted phone and have not looked back since.  I threw my money into this little-known-about Android 2.0 and could not have been happier.  Now, almost two years later, my contract is up in August and it looks like the Android Charge will be my next phone.  Front facing

I was happy right away, even before I knew of the wonders of Rooting!  A friend of mine, Jeff, also picked up the phone, so we went through the adventures in Android side by side.  By March, I realized the potential of a rooted phone and have not looked back since.  I threw my money into this little-known-about Android 2.0 and could not have been happier.  Now, almost two years later, my contract is up in August and it looks like the Android Charge will be my next phone.  Front facing camera, full HDMI-out mirror, and so, oh so much more!

But I wanted more Android.  Talk of tablets last year spread quickly, with unlicensed ones popping out here and there, but nothing that was worth the money.  That is until the NookColor by Barns and Noble!  That’s right, if you didn’t know, the ebook reader can be made into a fully functional android tablet with no risk and very little work.  It’s only 7 inches, where I’d really like a 10 inch one, but it was only $250 bucks!  Even now, the closest competitor is at least $300, with the high ends running upwards of $800.  The NookColor is very basic.  No GPS, no cameras, no video out, but the screen works great, it’s light and compact, and just feels good.  I recently got my hands on a

The NookColor is very basic.  No GPS, no cameras, no video out, but the screen works great, it’s light and compact, and just feels good.  I recently got my hands on a Galaxy Tab 7 and am in the process of selling it because, even though it has the cameras and GPS, the nook feels better and, to me, works better.

So, am I happy about my Android purchases?  OH YEAH!  I would not take back anything I’ve bought with Android.  I can’t wait to see what the future holds with it, the upcoming tablets with Android 3.0+ (Went to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 show a few weeks ago, looks sweet!), and most of all the days when the price will drop and make these tablets affordable for us all.

If you’re currently invested in iOS, windows mobile, blackberry, or any other mobile OS, try Android out, give it a chance and you won’t wonder how it’s gone from a little known OS on the bottom to surpassing iOS as the top mobile OS currently in the market.
