Update:  Winner chosen here!

Day 3 of Reader Appreciation Week is here and we’re ready to give away another Honeycomb tablet to one of our amazing DL readers.  This time we’ve got the Acer Iconia Tab, a 16GB, Tegra 2, dual-camera, WiFi beast that many people have been sleeping on.  We all know that the Asus Transformer and XOOM are top notch, but the Acer hasn’t been getting enough press, which is a shame.  The device is easily rooted with Gingerbreak, is starting to build up quite the following in various forums, and should get Android 3.1 in June.  So who wants it?  

To enter you must do one of the following (U.S. residents only again):

1a.  Follow us on Twitter and tweet the following:

2.  The entry period will run from today (May 25) until tomorrow (May 26) at 2PM Pacific.
3.  A winner will randomly be chosen and notified.  They will have 2 days to respond.

Good luck everyone!

And be sure to keep up with all of the action Tato has going on over at the Facebook page.  We’ve got all sorts of extra goodies to continue to give away.  Three full days left of giveaway madness…everyone holding up OK?

    I use a phone everyday. Its with me wherever I go. My phone of choice runs Android. The Google services integration is incredible. Its a platform that went from the underdog to the champ. Its about choice and freedom. That’s why I have Android in my life.

  • Android is in my life becuase I can’t stand the fact that Steve Jobs ripped off the Mouse from Xerox.

  • Android is my life, its my social outlet, allows me to find substitute teacher jobs which is my livelihood. Android also gives me something to do in my freetime, total customization!! Certainly leaves my iphone fanboy friends something to be jealous of!

  • Aaronmweiner

    Android is in my life because i need a smartphone that works. But i need a device that works hard and plays hard. I want flash and google maps and customizability. In short, im on android because there is nothing else out there that can do everything that android can. And now that its in my life i will never let it leave.

    Android is the revolution I’ve been waiting for free from the shackles of a mega corporation who’s only drive is profit.  It allows me to do what I want when I want and tailor my device for my needs without being nickeled and dimed for it while also being at the forefront of technology and capability.

    I have been a die-hard Verizon and Android supporter. I was forced to start doing i*hone development at my old job and I become an iPhone-hater. With the release of the original Droid on Android, I immediately went and purchased one at retail price since I didn’t have a renewal. I am so glad I did. Now I’m a huge android developer and I love Google and still despise the Apple.

  • Android is my life for many reasons. First i sit and refresh Droid-Life’s website incessantly waiting for new android news and my next obsession. I had an iPhone first and while it was the most polished cell phone i had ever seen at the time there was something missing. What was missing was freedom. The freedom to create and express yourself. Android has acted as fine art for the electronics world and it allows me to express my passion for electronics by doing more than buying a $200 cliche, but by using my head and my heart.

    Android is my life because my Droid does everything.

  • Tldspectre

    Android is in my life for the same reason as a PC is in my life and not a Mac. I’ve worked with both (Android/iOS and PC/Mac) and while I do appreciate Apple’s approach of consistency in design and ease of use, I prefer the Android OS because it allows me the most flexibility to do what I WANT to do, not what something (or someone) else limits me to “for my own good.”

  • If you havin’ itroublesI feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but my DROID ain’t one!!!

  • asuwookie

    Just under three years ago I was perfectly happy rockin my Motorola V555 dumbphone. My girlfriend at the time wanted a “smartphone” “cause it was pretty.” My argument was that I’ve had my V555 forever it worked for whatever I wanted it to do and we didn’t really need smartphones. She persisted and ordered the HTC PPC6700 from ebay. She walked into Bestbuy and in her best techie voice asked to the see the “HTC P P C 6700” she then told the clerk that she “just wanted to see it” as she had already ordered one. She hated the thing and had problems with I think the PRLs loading right and staying set right. I was victorious with my Moto V555 – “see you don’t need the headaches of that smartphone stuff.”  A few months later I was ready for an upgrade – and reluctantly was talked into the Blackberry Curve 8330.  (OG Droid wasn’t even out yet)  I LOVED THIS thing!! Played on Crackberry almost daily downloaded a few apps and it was the frequent go to phone in the car – streaming music on road trips – google maps – we could even find the closest Applebees when traveling (Couple Retreat Reference).  She stayed on my blackberry and eventually got one herself.  Last year I started looking at upgrading and got the droid incredible.  Haven’t looked back since – We’ve moved from Crackberry to Android Forums and Droid life.  It was like this big bright light came on and I could hear angels singing…this was it! For a brief momemt of insanity I even joined those other forums that have several hundreds of pages in one topic discussing it’s release. I’ve posted a few times and shared my excitement with my now wife. – “Oh look honey check out this video of the Sense UI built in to it” – “look at this friendstream app” “look at this app I found that will remind you to get the milk when the GPS senses that you are at the grocery store” …”it even has TV out and there is an app from Direct TV that will allow me to watch the football games this year.” She has been nothing but supportive and equally excited …”which is better Ghost Armor or Zagg” – “where do you get the cable for the TV out and how do we add the extra part of the Sunday Ticket.” “any accessories you can hold off till father’s day?”  She eventually got a Droid Incredible as well. 
     
    Well this insanity has started all over again.  Last week I was able to pick up the Transformer.  She wants her own home screens all pink and frilly.  Wants to bookmark all her chick websites, etc.  I can share but please with this contest I wouldn’t have to!  We haven’t even began to talk about our 11 year old step-daughter who we love dearly but thinks what is ours is hers.  Without another tablet I’ll be stuck watching family movies, wife playing bubble pop and surfing her websites. 
     
    Android’s openness ability to change homescreens, customize, available apps is why android is still in our life.  And not only in our life but why we strongly advocate to family and friends who debate between the ipad and android.

  • i love android, it gives me the freedom to install and customize the phone the way i want it.

  • i’ve tried all the rest and they just do not compare to android.  it’s flexibility and customization are unparallel and i wouldn’t have it any other way.  that’s why android is in my life.

  • Android is in my life because it’s the most likely candidate to reach the ubiquitous platform goal. That is the same platform every where so that data portability is fluid. I can access the same data, with out conversion, on everything. While Android isn’t there yet it’s very close. It’s on my phone and my tablet. Just a matter of time before it’s on my laptop and desktop too. Or, option 2 my laptop and desktop might just go away.

  • Firesong3k

    If I didn’t have android, I’d have nothing to do in my spare time at work!  Since I consider work my life, I guess android would have to go hand in hand for helping throughout my work day at work therefore be a major part of my life!

  • G1-D2 and beyond

    When I first learned about the G1, I knew I must own it. She was ugly and I knew it. Nevertheless, I was in love and pre-ordered. I’m not the early adopter type either. Seven months ago I finally upgraded to the Droid 2. I was no longer stuck on v1.5, the world opened up to me. The DroidX2 and Xperia Play now have me jealous. No matter. In 18 months, when I upgrade again, their successors will be out and I will once again be at the top of the Android nation!

    I started out with a G1…I always wanted Android to be a part of my life after realizing its potential to outshadow iOS, and just the fact that it was so open.  Now, i wouldn’t change my decision at all.  I can do anything i want with a droid x, while many ifriends continue to bitch and moan about lack of some abilities.  Android rocks.

    Here’s to winning an Iconia!

    Android is my life because i can’t deal with blackberry’s because they are so laggy. I can’t deal with windows phones because it’s a little too basic. and I ESPECIALLY can’t deal with i*hone’s because the software is just too restricted. I DESPISE A*PLE !

  • Android is in my life because it makes my life at home and work simpler by keeping everything connected in one place, especially having four different Google accounts. Also, it has not only cupcakes, donuts, eclairs, froyo, gingerbread and honeycomb, but some ice cream sandwiches are on the way too. I’m not a huge fan of apples and blackberries 😛

  • Android is in my life because it chooses to be.  It likes the freedom of knowing that it can leave me at anytime.

    Android gave me my interest in technology, after buying an og droid I fell in love and wanted to know everything. I love my phone, I love that people come up and ask me questions and ask for help. I taught a girl how to install cm7 just the other day 😀

  • Android is in my life because I wanted a phone that does what I want it to do and not an iPhone that only allows me to do what it wants, plus I’d rather not be affiliated with the iPhone and its bougie users

  • Android is my life because without it i might be an apple fanboy (yuck)

  • Well, Android is my preferred choice in many electronics because i like to customize and have control over my devices (to a point). Having a tablet would be big + for my small business.

  • Android is in my life because it allows me to combine multiple electronic gadgets into a single powerful device.  Its allows me to manage my work responsibilities while also managing my home life too 🙂

  • M4tt 03

    Android has been in my life for over 2 years now and it has been the best two years! I never got into the IOS crowd nor was a palm/web os follower and when I was looking for something new I turned to Android and haven’t looked back since. Its the shear openess, customization and the fluidness that makes android appealing to so many.

  • Ted Rea

    Android is in my life to drive productivity as well as give me a great hobby to enjoy.  I’ve helped several others root, hack, and mod their phones simply for the pleasure of experiencing a wide variety of devices and I’ve successfully converted a lot of people over from Apple products (one of my favorite accomplishments!)  It is a passion that I delve into daily and I love getting others excited about it too.  I used to work for Verizon around the time the OG Droid came out (my first Android experience) and I loved being able to introduce people to this OS on a daily basis and have them telling me later how much they now enjoy it.  I can’t put my finger on exactly what I like most about Android, but it’s really turned into a passionate hobby of mine and one that I’ve introduced to many others.  The Android community is second to none and I’m stoked to be a part of it!

  • Rogueslyer

    Droids take a byte out of Apple…I am a convert….even sold my ipod….

  • Android offers me easy access to everything I want to do in the palm of my hand and soon every appliance in my house. Why would I live anyway else?

  • I was itching for Android to blow up since the I*hone was first introduced.  I didn’t and still don’t like Apple’s approach to the world of technology.  I used to dream about the potential and all the mods you could do with smartphones from the day my dad got one.  When the OG Droid was released, I knew right away it was a game changer.  I told my friends to get it, my family, and I knew I had fallen in love.  I still have that OG Droid today, refusing to upgrade every time I’m offered or going through warranty.  Not trying to pull a pity vote here but the last time I won a giveaway was at a raffle when I was 8 years old, so it would be friggin SWEET to read DL on a tablet while tethering with my first love.  All I know is that who ever wins this should be extremely greatful, that is a beast of a device!

  • Android is my life because I use it for home, work, and play. I have used my Android powered phone on deployments across the world, it has kept me connected with the friends and family I don’t get to see everyday, and has enabled me to find friendships that surely will last a lifetime. Android rekindled my love for writing (I write articles for many sites), and honestly, its the only thing that’s really also been reliable for me in life.

    Android is in my life because other platforms just didn’t do it for me… I was on Windows Mobile prior to switching to Android and just had to get away from it.

  • Android wakes me up, tells me how to dress for the weather, helps me catch a bus, entertains me on the ride, lets me know what countries are being blowed up today and sometimes gives be a boner which is always welcome. Yes, Android is a part of my life. An intimate part.

A Tablet would open up so much for me, and allow me to View Droid life with out having to squint , or carry around heavy laptops that get hot.

    I android is my life because of its potential.  It allows for so much customization and creation.  It allows rooting, and custom roms.  Its apps and market let me do what I want to do and provide me with the hardware I desire.

    i have been using android since the og droid on Verizon came out, since then i have owned the fascinate and currently on the htc thunderbolt. Being in the it world doing tech support, i like the openness on android and the scalability the OS has to offer vs apple, where you have to get approval it seems. I say its always better to ask for forgiveness then permission.

    Android is in my life because knowledge is one of the most important things to me.  A lesson learned at a young age from GI JOE (knowing is half the battle, ring a bell?).  Having the answer to any question that can be found out on the internet is about the equivalence to genius.  Throw a few games and now Netflix as well as YouTube in there and it’s a potent recipe for paradise.

    Android is in my life because I value my independence. The first smartphone I ever had was actually an iPhone, given to me by my friend after he upgraded to the iPhone 3G. I never used it as a phone (stayed on verizon), but I treated it like an iPod Touch. Even after jailbreaking it, I was disappointed with the lack of customization, as well as some big features that were missing at the time (multitasking and copy and paste). I also was really into Gmail and Gtalk, and so when it broke I was sad but didn’t feel like buying a new one. When the OG Droid was announced, I was immediately entranced by their “DROID DOES” ads. I fell in love with the phone, and got it on launch day. Never disappointed with it, and I’m glad I chose a phone that could actually do anything I wanted it to!

  • Chris Marquardt

    I’ve owned *pple and Rim products before and I never had the functionality and versatility the Android has.  Everything from my personal life to work, there isn’t much that I found that Andy doesn’t do!  From Cad work to electronic circuit design and simulation, to impressive games and tunneling to my laptop and work PC to actually be able to play Eve Online and watch Netflix.  Hell I’ve even seen apps that turned it into a sex toy and a virtual girlfriend.  I even use it as a severe storm spotter here. 

    I could go on for days on how much I love the Android system.  My point is, I will never go back to anything but an Android system.  I even forced my employer to go Android.  The only thing I wish I had was a bigger screen to make it easier to use Autodesk WS.  I can hardly wait to see what else comes out for Android.

As soon as I realized how amazing and open the software was, I quickly got my wife a myTouch 3G which has since been upgraded to a Samsung Sidekick 4G. Our daughter is almost two and I can’t wait until she’s old enough for her first device, I’d love it if they developed a child-friendly Android device. Would pick it up for her so fast! 🙂 Best wishes to all entrants.

    The reason why android is in my life is due to the fact that no other platform can offer so much openness mobility and innovativeness right out of the box. I don’t love to do anything more than to be me and be happy while being me. when defining android it is impossible to leave out the term customization so therefore in turn android is a part of the user. so why not make your device YOURS. Android offers the key to open the doors of knowledge and discovery its just up to the user to decide how far curiosity will take them to find that key.

    Android is in my life becasue the OG Droid was announced as I was getting tired of dumbphones and didn’t want to switch to ATT for the i*hone. Perfect timing by Moto/VZW. Now if they can finally release the Bionic so I can upgrade.

  • TheFutureIsNotWhatItUsedToBe

    When the iPhone came out the only uses my friends could show me were games and lightsabers.  When the Droid came out, I didn’t really like the keyboard, so I waited.  The day the Droid Incredible came out (April 29, 2010) I got up early to check it out before work.  When I saw how well the voice recognition worked, I was sold, and I’ve still got it today 🙂

    I was unable to switch over to the iPhone, I hate AT&T and the platform was too closed for me. Windows 6.5 phones were just coming out and I demo’d one for a full month. It was the most horrible piece of garbage I ever used. I returned it, set my self up with the brand new original Droid when it came out and have not looked back once. I am not on the D2 and my wife used the DX. I even set her up with a re-ROM’d Viewsonic G-Tablet currently running Gingerbread. We have gone all-android and plan to stay this way for years to come.

It gave me an opportunity to program on android and make my life easier on a smartphone.

    Android is in my life for a few reasons. Mainly b/c Android IS my life. I still remember the moment when I was in Verizon picking up my OG. My wife and I went there to get HER a Droid, while I was planning to keep my LG Dare. We had both ignorantly thought and said many times, ‘Well, we’ll get an i*hone when it comes to Big Red. But until then, I simply didn’t know much at all about Android. Well, like the little boy that I am, (I’m 26) once my wifey got her new toy, I had to get one too, and instantly went to bargaining with her, and left there myself with my OG. I remember how I thought it was strange that I had to link the device to a gmail account. I didn’t have a gmail account at the time. I remember leaving there and going straight to my friends house and watching 2012, while playing on my new Droid and making him jealous as the day is long! Oh, so many Droid memories. But, it didn’t take me long to realize that my Droid was vastly superior to that crapple device. At that time, it was the best device out there (besides the Nexus 1 arguably. And probably better than it since the OG was on the best network for coverage, and the N1 was on the worst) None the less, since that time, it’s been one amazing journey. The main other reason that Android is in my life is b/c of Droid Life. I check this website more times a day that I pee. I can actually remember watching old YouTube videos of Kellex and thinking that he was a jerk 🙂 b/c when he would talk about custom roms and what not, he never went into any type of detail about how to do it, he just talked like a veteran who was talking to other veterans, but I was a rookie. BUT, I learned very quickly that of all the Android blogs, and there a multiple ones that I enjoy, this one is definitely the best. And I’m not kissing butt, so shut up. It’s just a fact. These days, I spend my time installing new roms, watching videos on new devices, and telling my InferiorPhone friends about all of the sweet stuff that Android does that their cute little Steve-dominated devices cannot do. Mmm….the good life. So, I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about why I love Android so much, but if you’re of like mind, then what I ‘ve said has easily resonated with you and probably stirred up some old, fond memories of your own. ‘Peace out, we’re Droid Life.’

  • kingofthething

    Android IS my life…every day I check xda, droidforums, droid-life, etc. for new versions of any of my favorite ROMs, apps of the day, amazon free app of the day, contests to win android stuff, leaks of GB, warnings that that same leak could brick your phone, when to expect 4G in my area…I could go on and on and on and on. The majority of my internet usage is focused on Android related content. When a new version of my favorite ROM drops I drop everything to flash it and give it a test drive. Seriously, at least 50% of my day is devoted to Android in one way or the other. 

    Thanks Andy, you really have changed my life.

    Android has changed my life in more than one way. It has given me a channel where I can bring out the nerd in me by either customizing the phone with a Rom, or Theme, or utilizing the endless tools it has to integrate in my daily routine. It also served as a beacon of light in my life because everyone around me was an i*hone user and I just couldnt see myself blindly becoming a sheep and ending up in the downward spiral they were stuck in. Android saved me.

  • Android is awesome, ’nuff said.

  • Android is my life, since my work and personal life is all setup in my phone.

  • Android is in my life because I’m in college. I needed a smartphone to keep track of my coursework and emails and none of the other offerings were nearly as good as Android. Not only that, but the thriving development community mean that the phone wouldn’t be quite so out-dated in another six months after its release. Pair that with the continued efforts of Google on behalf of the consumer, and you’ve got a platform that I find myself almost unable to live without.

  • Adryan

    Android is in my life cause of original droid. I needed a new phone and wanted a smartphone on verizon then i got the droid and from there is was pure joy and ecstasy. I fell in love with the customization, the constant hackery with my droid,the freedom of choice as more handsets started to appear, and the absolutely freaking amazing support of the android community as it started to splode all over the internet with rooting and hacking for almost every handset. Lets not overlook the widgets which i love too. And all the home replacement apps which again falls along the lines of CHOICE. Who doesnt love having a choice and not being forced to choice one option. I know i love choice.

    The Android operating system is the world’s best-selling Smartphone platform and I am still droid-less. I have wanted a tablet since they first came out but since they are a luxury item, just can’t justify the expense. I would really enjoy using this, its such a cool toy. Just throwing my hat in the ring. Thanks for the chance.

    For a little less than a decade I have owned a new phone every few months on just about every operating system. I never really found a phone with the openness and usability that I could really embrace. Then android came along. I watched it closely while I toiled with my limited blackberry. When the droid came out and the much more polished android 2.0 was released I knew it was finally time. Since then, I have been introduced to the world of hacked roms and location aware apps that android delivers. I have gotten everyone around me to switch to android too because I am so zealous. I will never switch to another platform. I have modified my phone to the point that it is not just an accessory, but an extension of me and my will. My wallpaper shows my artistic tastes. The photo album and favorites tabs shows the people and places that mean the most to me. If you never met me and simply picked up my phone and went through it, you would know me on a level that few do. My phone, and android and I are one and the same. That the power of this platform and ecosytem. It becomes me. I become it. We become one. Android is my life.

    android will always be my choice, mainly because google has always been my choice. ive been pro google since i was a gmail account at invite only. i got an iphone only because it had google apps (then proceded to throw it across a parking lot out of hatred). android is my biggest hobby, i have converted nearlly every iphone user that i work with to droid 2s, Xs, galaxys, and evos. i have sold devices to customers at the verizon store on droid x and others, when i was only there to pay my bill and get a free charge for a few minutes.

    Android is in my life because, Android is in my life. Me, my wife and kids are currently stationed on the other side of the world from my family and after I bought the D1 to help us all keep in touch my older sister got the DX, my little sister got the DX, they bought one for our Dad, and now more and more of the family are coming back from the dark side(aka liephones). Also slowly but surely my coworkers and regular customers are switching over. I also HAD to buy one for my 12 yr old nephew, he was thinking about a liephone but I showed him the light. I’m now have a DX and my wife is cheating on me with my old friend the OG.

  • ScottyfromGA

    Okay, so I’m gonna stick my head in this for once cause I never tried it, but here goes.  Android is in my life to keep me sane.  I have had such a horrible run of years, since 2002 to Present.  I have went through 8 years of seeing my Mother die slowly from cancer, to trying to build a relationship with my girlfriend/now wife and expecting a beautiful baby girl during the time my Mother was dying.  Long story short, its difficult having a wedding and becoming a first time father all in 45 days time after your Mother had passed away.  Well…this certainly put me in a emotional and physical funk of monumental proportions.  It’s still tough….but back in 2010 when I discovered the Droid Incredible and then found Droid-Life to research about it, it changed my world.  I was able to take time away from my life and just lose myself in the vibrate colors, lightning fast speeds of 3G and enjoy all there is to love about our green little robot, Android.  Finding all the user created apps and learning how to root, roll back…root….brick a phone….all these good things made me love how new and exciting this OS really is.  It seems to me, as novice as I am to Android, that WE the users are making this grow.  It seems like we are apart of something and I love that feeling.  Knowing that WE are making a difference with this system is cool.  This might not be a winning submission…..but this is how I feel about the Android system and how its helped me through the most difficult times of my life.  Also, helped me find the coolest website on the web!

    Thanks!

    Android and i have a symbiotic relationship.  It is in my life to keep my life in order.  Before Android I was paper calendar and sticky note crazy.  I was constantly late to appointments and hadn’t kept in touch with my old schoolmates since I left the school! Now with instant access to my online calendars, social network, and Evernote I’m productive and kept in the loop!

    Thanks Android

    Android is in my life because there is no better OS for a smart phone.

  • I had been wanting a smartphone for a while now but couldn’t justify it since I was a stay at home mother. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer on 7/1/10, I found my regular phone just wasn’t enough for me. I needed to be able to email with my kids staying with my parents (and subsequently with their teachers once they were back in school), I needed a good calendar for keeping all his appointments straight, and I needed something to do for all those hours spent siting with him at the hospital (Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY). He now has wicked hand tremors from some of the medications he’s on and having a tablet-a larger surface-for him to play on would certainly pass the time for him.

    I will be more than happy to give the powers that be any type of verification/documentation to back up what I’m writing.

  • Scott Moyse

    more US only rubbish!

  • Android is my life because it helps keep me sane at work. I work in a nursing home and when I go on break all I want is to pretend that I am not there. So I never go to break without my original droid or nook color to keep me company. As the sound of call lights, sensor pads and tab alerts echo in the break room, I am happily jamming in my head phones, reading, texting, playing on the internet, playing angry birds, and other wise in another world during my 30 minute lunch break (let’s be real- who ever gets their two- 15 minute breaks? lol, esp. if you are not a smoker). I keep both devices fully charged because my lunch is ruined if I don’t have any of my “toys” to play with.  I have coworkers who are now also droid followers, due to taking break with me and innocently asking me what I was doing. 🙂

    Android is in my life because the Original Moto Droid was the first “smartphone” I bought.  And since I had Verizon, I*hone was not an option.  Since owning the orginal droid, I have fell in love with Android and how they do things. Now I am a proud owner of the Droid X2, and Android will probably be a permanent staple in my life.

  • trd84soup

    Android is in my life because of the Droid commercials back when it was just the OG Droid and DInc. The DX (which is what i have now) was 2 months away from launch.  When that robotic arm moved around and talked about their “apps expanding”, making a bunch of apps grow into what looked like the world, I was basically sold.  I wanted to find out about this “Droid” phone and since my contract was up in two months, might as well give it a go.  I wanted the OG Droid but my friends kept talking about the DX.  Pretty soon I wanted a DX (insert joke here). Found out one of my friends was a Verizon rep, got hooked up the day of launch, and ever since then, it’s been <3.  Hell, I fell off from my itouch after! haha

  • The_surg

    The OG Droid got me hooked on android.

  • android is in my life because i am bored without it. Coming from school, which is totally boring, i get on droid-life to see what new posts are up. Android has made mobile smartphone use into something far greater than the iphone. I still rock the OG Droid and have been following droid life since its old website :). Android came into my life when the very first commercials of Droid Does were aired on tv. I begged intil i finally got it and hacked right away. Thats why android is in my life-to keep me moving and rooting.

    I’m a dental student who needs a phone I can rely on to communicate with patients and organize my schedule. While my i*hone friends are waiting every 15 minutes for their emails, I get mine instantly (when activesync works) and stay ahead of the curve. Android has managed to do all this and more.

    I love that I can have all 30+ GB of music on my phone (the DroidX of course).  That along with the infinite customization of Android makes my life complete! 

  • I used to be a BIG Apple/iPhone fan and thought that any other touch screen phone was lame and wasn’t as good as the iPhone. Then i saw a OG Droid commercial, and thought, “another lame phone”, also at this time i didn’t know anything about Android. Couple months passed by and I was looking for a new phone. Stopped by Verizon to look at their phones, and the Rep there started telling me about the Droid, I was surprised and interested. So I decided to get it and to this day I’m STILL glad i got it. Since then I don’t care for the iPhone, and it made me realize everything that the iPhone CAN’T do. Now my girlfriend is always mad at me cause i don’t ever put my phone down, I’m always on it. Now I have the Droid Incredible and will never leave Android, I don’t know what i would do if i didnt have an Android phone of any kind. It also entertains my daughter when she won’t stop crying and yelling. And that is why Android is in my life and why it always will.

  • C S

    The reason why Android is my life is because I’m disabled (thanks to a degenerative neurological disorder and holes in my spinal cord) and devices like my Droid X help me stay connected with others.  I usually can’t get out of the house and, some days, can’t get out of bed.  But I can stay in touch with friends and family, play games, keep up on current events, watch movies and TV.  As a long time geek, my desktop computer vital to me.  But after becoming disabled, sitting in a desk chair sometimes isn’t an option for me.  My android phone goes anywhere… from the bedroom to the hospital room.  A tablet would be fantastic, giving me more landscape to work with, a screen large enough my wife and I can watch together.  In short, it would be a really awesome thing to have.  And to be honest, being completely disabled and us living without my income (I was the main breadwinner before) makes it harder to afford new gadgets.  Winning this would be pretty huge.

    And for the internet cynics, if I am chosen, I am more than happy and able to provide documentation of my disability.

    Thanks for the contest, and good luck to everyone.

I love making and tweaking things, like Windows 7 themes and any other tech stuff I can find. Found the OG Droid and never looked back. Then I found this site through sheer want to learn and it has been a blessing. Found out how to root on this site, how to tweak, how to do… well…. pretty much everything. Will be a member and follower for as long as the site will be around. Thanks DROID LIFE for all you do!!!

    Android is in my life because my dad bought me the DROID. I have been obsessed with Android ever since.

  • I remember the day in November when I entered the world of Android. I was using a Palm Centro and was really going to the Verizon store to look at some other new phone. I got talking to the sales rep, and he showed me the Motorola Droid. I love the QWERTY keyboard and the apps it had. It was the perfect phone for me at the time. Soon after I was using Stumbleupon and came across this blog called Droid-life. It was like my whole experience went to another level. It was no longer just a phone or a minicomputer. It was mine, I had control over it. And as I learned more and helped others with their new Droids I got the chance to turn others onto this wonderful platform. The day before my daughter was born, I convinced my wife to get an LG ally. She just wanted a simple phone and I showed her that it could still be a simple phone, even on android. Android can be complex with a million bells and whistles, or it can be a simple 3 screen Facebook checking camera like she wanted. But as she got used to it, she really got to liking it, too. I watched as new phones came out, but I never could separate from my OG Droid. And then came the Thunderbolt. I got mine the day it came out, second person in line! Then they messed up and attached my wifes phone number to the SIM card. So until they could fix it later, I had to let my wife use my new T-bolt. The problem is, she fell in love with it, and so I let her have that one, and I just got another! I rooted both shortly after release and run Das BAMF on both. THe phones are night and day different though. That is why Android is in my life. It is part of my story. It is so unique. There are millions of the damn things in the wild, and I doubt any 2 are the same! Even with the latest Gingerbread problems, I would never have it any other way!

    Android is in my life to help fulfill my need to tinker with stuff.  It keeps me out of trouble and is a lot of fun

  • Welcomematt78

    As an EMT (Emergency Medical Tecnician) I have lots of down time in my ambulance. In that down time I like to keep up on all the latest Android developments via the Droid Life app on my Droid X. But I will admit, even though the X has an awesome 4.3″ screen it can still be a strain to read on for several hours a day. I could bring my laptop, but that is just to bulky to have sitting on my lap. That is why I need a tablet! It would make life so much easier. Oh and I wanted to thank you for making it easy for me to find out how to root my device. Its been a blast getting to costomize my device to how I see fit. Cheers!

    android is my life because it saved me from the devil back in the beginning of November 2009 i decided that my life was going well enough to buy a smart phone and to my dismay the best one was the i****e but then i saw a commercial that changed my life i ended up buying the original droid on the launch day and found this site soon after and i was hooked now all i do is check this site flash my phone while thinking about what one i will empty out my wallet for next but what i do know is that it will be android and it will be awesome and i will never have to think about going back to that dark place in my cellular life ever again!

  • Android is in my life because of Apple and Microsoft draconian tactics. I have always been into technology but the locked down paid app ecosystem kills me. I used to have a WM6 phone, you bought and app from a developer and if you lost the install it was gone. The centralized market place is an stunning achievement. But now all of them have it. I remember where I was when I heard of a google OS. Goodfellow AFB Middle of no where texas. I had an Iphone 2G. Although I loved the concept of the phone I could not do what I wanted to do. Every special thing required a jail break and an unauthorized app. Having a Gmail account since day one and using linux in my home I knew it was going to be awesome. And that it was I loved my G1 then progressed to VZ and still have a OG Droid. I truly love these phones love the OS love being able to do what I need it to do, without jail breaking or rooting. Don’t get me wrong mine is rooted of course, but I did it because I wanted to, not because I have too. I am a Systems Administrator for an outsourced IT company. All day I deal with Blackberries and Iphones and Windows Server and Windows Mobile. Anything and everything under the sun. The way I feel is I go to work to deal with the headache that is, apple & microsoft. For simple uncongested, just plain simple works and don’t have to worry about licenses or what can I do to my phone and can’t, I go with Android…

    I have android in my life because I wanted tobe a part of the group that knew how to work the device that ran their lives, instead of letting their crappy iPhone sync their life for them. I wanted to be in control of m stuff. Android lets me do thati am now a total android nerd and know of every Android phone ever.

    Android has fully become part of my everyday life. I am a teacher and work in the pharmacy and having the customizations that Android’s open software, I have not only increased efficiency at work, dealing with students, and of course, having just FUN! I enjoy Android so much, I have join many of the Adroid community forums and begun taking classes in developing and computer engineering so I may start making apps myself.

  • Anonymous

    Before I had my OG Droid I really didn’t care about cell phones.  I knew I wasn’t interested in the i*hone because everyone “HAD” to have one.  That’s not the way I roll.  Plus they all looked the same.  I figured if I was going to invest some $$$ it had better blow my socks off.  That’s what the Droid did for me.  And from the looks of this site, it’s done the same for most everyone here.  I now own the DX and am still rocking rooted goodness.  My dad tells me I’ve become a “phone nerd”.  Thanks dads, I will wear that title proudly.  Rooting/openess rocks.   All my friends come to me if they have questions or problems about their Android phones or which phone to buy.   They ask where do I learn about all these phones coming out??? I tell them Droid-Life baby. Even talked a few out of buying that “fruity” one.  Thanks to Kellex and all the guys on this site.  I believe we have helped push the Droid phones and all Android phones beyond what Google could’ve imagined.

    Android is important in my life as I like cross platforming applications. Had an android phone, then switched to Iphone. I recently got a Xoom tablet, gotta have my android fix

  • Tferrell7368

    I love Android! My OG Droid was my right hand. Now my Droid X has taken over as my go to device. I shamelessly plug Android every chance I get. A Honeycomb Tablet would be the icing on the cake. I have vowed never to go over to the” iDarkside”. I don’t and never will own an iPod, not even so much as a single itune’d song. Apple has a great product but Im a Droid’r for life.

    Love Droid-Life, I check it early and check it often. Thanks for keeping us in the Andro-loop.

  • desertdiesel

    Android is in my life because I was tired of having to run “quickpull” on my blackberry.

  • Android is in my life, because I’m not a hipster that falls for all the “oooooh its shiny” crap. Even though thats probably what I wouldve done if the iphone wouldve come out sooner on Verizon, but Im glad it didnt, because I wouldve never found Android.

  • Shawna

    I recently purchased a droid and am still learning how to use it.  But that is why my droid is so awesome because it can do so many things and there are so many incredible apps.  My droid frees me to access the internet wherever I go and that is important to a busy mom like me. Thank you for the chance to win!

    Android is in my life because Microsoft dropped the ball bigtime.  🙂  I was a winmo fan from day one,  then they stopped developing 6.5 and I bought my first android phone.  A droid X.  All I can say is WOW  after learning more about android and finding out how much can be done with it I would never go back to winmo  thanks google and Droid-Life!

  • Fierogt5spd

    Every day one of the first things I do is check Droid-Life and a few other android sites.  I have been doing this for over 1.5 years and can’t seem to get enough android.  I absolutly love reading about it and playing around with my devices.  Especially trying out new ROMs.  Android Rocks!!!

  • Screw Apple, Go Android.

  • android is in my life because otherwise, i’d get bored

  • Jallen98499

    Android is in my life because it just happened to power the greatest phone ever…the OG DROID! Haven’t looked back since. Screw you, apple! I’ve converted three of followers. Many more to go

    • I’ve converted half my church to Android (that is 75 people now using Android about 60 have a DROID branded phone).

  • Android is a huge part of my life and I’d like to make it moreso with an Android tablet so I can get a full web experience as opposed to the first-gen iPad I inherited. Since I didn’t get lucky enough to get one of the CR-48’s I’ve decided that this tegra2 powered Acer is the tablet for me.

  • Saad87

    Android is my life because its user-friendly. It also allows me to follow the news and soccer result live. In addition it keeps it easy for me to communicate with people via ebuddy

  • Android is in my life because I wanted a phone that was like a computer in my pocket.  And by computer I mean PC, not a dumbed down computing appliance (cough… [email protected]… ) The Iph*ne is nice, but I wanted a phone that would let me do what I want, when I want, even if it wasn’t approved by Steve J*bs… even if it might break the phone… even if it might suck… even if it is illegal… even if it involves killing unicorns… wait, there isn’t an app to kill unicorns yet.  But there might be… and the Appstore would never approve it. And that’s why Android is in my life…

  • Android is in my life because I SAW THE LIGHT and sold my Blackberry on eBay. I love my Droid X because I can do pretty much everything on my phone and the screen is huge. I can watch movies at work (shhh), listen to music while I work out AND keep track of my calories/exercises AND text message… multi-tasking at its greatest. 

  • Why Android is in my life: My first smartphone was the iPhone 3G.  I purchased on release day and had never heard of Android until one of my friends bought a G1. I was a total hater on Android. I thought it would go no where. Though soon all that would change. I still had a line on VZ (with an LG Chocolate as backup phone), and I was really starting to hate AT&T. For almost two weeks I had no EDGE service or 3G, just 1X. When AT&T told me they would not reimburse me for this, I decided it was time to cancel. Same day that I canceled my iPhone 3G service, I walked into Big Red and decided to try the Droid 1. From that point on I never once looked back, in fact, I can’t stand iOS.

  • Rob Wisco

    Android is in m life because I am on Verizon and I wanted an iPhone. I didn’t want to settle for less, so I wasn’t going to buy any copycats; then I saw the Droid (OG). 2 hours later (with a Droid in my possession), I realized the iPhone was about to be kicked off it’s pedestal by Android, and boy was I right.

  • Android is in my life because I made the switch from a windows mobile phone*omnia*, and it was such a breath of fresh air. My first android phone was the Motorola droid. With my windows phone I had discovered what the modding community had to offer and was instantly hooked. So after reading about androids some what openness I thought it could be a dream come true. Then one day while trying to find a modding community for my droid I stumble upon droid-life, and I can honestly say that I check this website everyday, because without this site I wouldn’t have keep my droid as long as I did (launch-5/23/11). So thank you to the droid-life staff, community, and android for changing my phone technology forever

  • Mlawler

    Android Rocks, I can’t believe I ever got along without my Droid X

  • i always wanted a smartphone.   But have always hated the apple brand.  i knew first time i see the who DROID campaign that it was for me.  Droid Does.  Loved it and have been just plain obsessed with it since.  Everyone said that it was stupid.  But i have slowly opened thier eyes.  Even my GF who hated my droid is a huge fan.  i upgraded to thunderbolt and hated the OG droid to her.  And once she realized that blackberry could not even touch what she could do on this she loved it.

  • Android is in my life because I saw the droid advertisements and drooled.  Then the droid x came out and I got it for an awesome Christmas gift and I have never looked back since. Long live the king.

  • The member of Navy SEALs Team 6 who shot Osama has a Droid X.  That’s why I love Android.  Look it up.

    without it, it’s like getting stabbed by a knife, and Android is truly my life.

  • RickX93277

    Because Apple is comparable to the Chavez socialist party where they centrally control all they can. Android at it’s roots is an open system before the manufacturers and carriers warp it. It’s a fun system to play with and customize.

    Android gives me the power of tapping into all the variety of ideas and apps that an open system offers while offering me the structure, safety and value that the large numbers of a pervasive OS like Android offers.  All while avoiding the limitations and excessive costs of a closed system like iOS.

  • Android is my life because it will help me avoid cops with it’s radio capability and will help me find a safe place to run to with a Android GPS app. Running from the law made easy with Android.

    I used to drive an hour and a half to work and an hour and a half back.  Android enabled me to use google maps, listen to internet radio, keep up with the weather, have a cell phone, and keep posted on speed traps all at the same time.  It also read me my emails and text messages.

  • android has made everything simple for me…… from paying bills, to watching movies whenever i want, being able to eliminate my ipod forever… i love it. From OG droid to HTC Thunderbolt. Ill never go Apple!

  • Android is in my life because it provides an alternative to worshiping at the Apple altar – a better alternative that I was happy to spend my money on and use in the way I want to instead of the way some corporation says I have to.

    Android is in my life plain and simply because it makes my life better! Not only can I make calls and surf the web, but it helps me keep track of my many schedules (work and personal), helps me sync 6 different email addresses, helps me find information, wakes me up each morning, and provides countless hours of entertainment. Android is in my life to stay!!

  • Android is my life because it’s open source and allows me to sync with Google.

  • Android is my life because:
    -I listen to music on my Android phone for at least 4 hours.
    -Play games on it – 1 hour minimum
    -Browsing The Web &  Downloading – 20 minute +
    -Calling/Msging – 15 minute+
    -Enjoying the amazing Android apps – Up to 2 hours
    So yeah, we are looking at ugh.. half of my day just using my lovely Droid X device. 
    Another reason why it’s my life:
    -When I sleep, I use TuneIn Radio, put my earphones on, set the volume down to 1/8, and try to sleep. Trust me it works, and how many hours is that, it’s 6 hours minimum[8+ on weekend].

  • Narynan

    I bought a T-Mobile G1 launch day. I showed it off to everyone.  They all told me, “it’s not a blackberry, and its not an iphone, so I don’t care.”  But then my brother got one.  And then a co-worker.  And then my Wife, boss, friends, neighbors, co-workers and guess who they came to as the “Android Guy”.  Me

    Then the G1 wasn’t enough anymore.  I wanted more out of my Cyan modded beas and then I got the SGS, then the G2, and now the G2x.  In the last year it’s become more than just a phone, its because my hobby.  And what better way to spread a hobby that expanding that obsession to a Android tablet.  

    Thats my story.

  • I love that Android is open source and that there are so many good apps.  Also that there are many great phones to choose from on all the carriers.  I myself have the ‘OG’ original Droid.  I know that I will have to replace it soon, but it has been a great entry into the smartphone game for me.

    Android is my life because it has opened my eyes to ways I can be so much more productive.
    I was using a Motorola Razr V3m (a Razr!) until 4 months ago. My girlfriend had an HTC Evo and mocked me endlessly. Lo and behold, I finally give in, get a Evo, and now I can catch up on my (voluminous) google reader (with droid-life of course) during breakfast. Now I don’t have to check greader at work so much!

  • Edonjr

    love my DX and I have had it since launch. I pretty much use it all day. And since I work nights it lets me catch up on the daily news. From watching movies to using google maps to getting around boston. Looking up the score from the red sox to tethering my friends devices. The openness of the android os lets me customize my phone to my needs. A tablet would be great cause it won’t be as back breaking as carrying a laptop around. Add I got a baby on the way. I can download the magazines for my fiance to read when she is in the hospital. Been meaning to get her one.

  • Android is in my life because I liked it better than iOS

  • Goblueboy

    I took some computer science classes in high school, never really knew what I wanted to do in a computer related field. My parents got me a smart phone for college, Verizon didn’t have an iPhone (I was so uninformed back then). I only did enough research to think that the droid x was a the best phone available. I never heard about locked boot loaders or root. I was just was in it for the apps and the benchmarks. 

    Now I know how to fully make good use of my phone by rooting and I have also understand how my phone compares to others. Before this I used to just throw my ignorance around and even say that the droid x was soooo much better than the evo. (This was after the FPS cap). Now from android I have learned that I really need to do a lot of research to back up my arguments and research on the best technology and the pros and cons for every single device. I spent 2 months research what laptop was the best for me. 

    From Android I have learned that my major in college will be more related to software engineering. I have about 10 ideas for an app to make and I hope to be making them in the future. I love Android, and I don’t love it for the fanboy part. iPhone has its pros and cons. I really like open source and my ability to customize everything. Thank you Droid life for all your news, tips, and giveaways. You are one of my favorite websites to visit. I also love how at least you guys post comments and reply on twitter. Droid life is the only website I know that does that. 

    I know this is a random winner, I had a lot of time >.>

    I like android because it’s not idroid.

  • midwaymons7er

    Android is my life because I dont have to take it back to Verizon every few months like my Blackberry Tour. Plus  there’s more to do on my android than play brick breaker for 10 minutes and get bored. 

  • The Android OS is mainly in my life because of it’s customizable nature. Being a touring musician I need a phone on a network that’s not going to drop my calls when calling a venue, or promoter. Unlike AT&T. That’s why I stick with Big Red. I also enjoy the social integration so we can keep our fans updated easily from the road. 

  • Jonathan Tallman

    I use Android for it customization.

  • I used to be an apple fan, prior to my nexus 1 & Droid X.  Now I use my phone to keep track of all my social networking (blocked at work), check personal & work email, manage my calendar/life, get pages, play games, check movie times, get directions/navigation, chat with my fiancée, read books, catch up on my news & weather, and last but not least listen to my mp3’s, pandora, and podcasts!

  • Testiclēs

    Droid is in my life at first by accident, my og droid was given to me as a gift. Since then I’ve upgraded to the X and I’m never going back. I use my droid every day and show it off whenever possible. I follow DL and try to keep up with all the news of the smartphone world. But really droid is in my life because it is one of the only pure goods in my life. No matter how my day is going I can always look at my X and feel a little happy.

    Because i wanted a phone with an OS that would do everything i could possibly want a phone to do and more, i also wanted freedom and a choice of hardware and got that by choosing Android. Now I’m an addict and wont be leaving ever! Android for life!

  • Android is in my life because it does everything the competition can’t. Do a phone, and do it right. Don’t like it? Go get another app that does what you want. Want to tinker? Root and run commands on your phone. Want to get from point A to point B and don’t want to buy a $500 piece of junk GPS? Comes with (Google Licensed) Android devices. Nothing further to buy. Want that cool app for $2 on the Apple App Store? Get it free on Google Market, or wait a few weeks for Amazon to make it the app of the day.

    I can go on and on. Android eats other mobile OSes for breakfast. 🙂

  • Android is in my life because it allows me to turn my phone into who I am not like other OS that try to make you into them.  Freedom to be you

  • Android is my life because it allows me to run every app I ever need for not only my job but my personal life

  • Droidfalc

    Android is my life simply because I’m not a iObey folks who love everything (and I mean everything) that comes out of Cupertino

  • Android lets the goood times roll. So much to do and use. The people love to share their discoveries with everyone and make the android life a new discovery every day.. Long live the DROID.

  • Android is in my life because Mountain View > Cupertino.

  • Android is the most awesome system in the world. The joy of puttin new apps on my toys is a fun joy in my life. My main squeeze loves it when I find a app that I know she will have fun with. You guys ROCK with you news,tips, and links. Keep up the good work.

    Android is in my life because I was tired of having the same old phone that took 8 years to open up a webpage. Anytime im bored in class I just change up the home screens and give it a whole new look.  Gotta love it

    Android is my life because i don’t want to be an iphone user and not run flash

  • Zach Tanksley

    Android is in my life to remind me and other people that life isn’t meant to be robotic (ironically). That we have free will, and the ability to not be just fruit falling from the same rotten tree, but are a people of variety and choice, and occasionally a force close to remind us we are only Droid… I mean human. No I meant DROID actually.

  • Omonk99

    Android is in my life because it gives me the chance not be a part of the herd. I want customization. I want variety. I want to be Me…

  • Android is a huge part of my life because its there when I wake up, and its my alarm. Android is what starts my day, and its the first thing I check after the alarm on it goes off. I check my notifs to see what kinda deals are going on, or who wanted me last night. It tells me the weather, I sometimes ride to work on my R6, and well….rain is a pain! After I get my  daily info, I take a shower, where its hooked up to my boombox, and I sing in the shower (yeah yeah, i know, i suck!). I then check it when I get out, for the time, and go to work. While at work I frequently need to use my phone to call, and my android powered droid 1 is there by my side, always waiting for commands. At lunch I use it for surfing the web, and ironically enough, checking for the latest android news (here obv haha). When I get off of work, I text my girlfriend constantly. And android is still there, by my side. Every day before I go to bed I update to the latest CM7 nightly, and see what changes have been made if any. Android is a huge part of my life. Its not JUST software, its a lifestyle, and a great one at that. The options that Android gives for customization are like no other. I have had BB, iPhone and W7 in the past and just keep going back to my D1 just because I love the software that it uses. I couldnt ask for anything more…well maybe better hardware with unlocked bootloaders, but thats another story. I love Android.

  • android is soooooo awesome. I live to explore the new things you can do with them. Nothin brings more joy to my eyes than making a new app work on my devices. My main squeeze loves the things I find to put on her android toys. You guys ROCKKKKKK with the tips and links ya put out to us……

    android is in my life because winmo failed me and apple’s iphone, well to be honest i never liked apple since they’re products kept buggin out on me(ipod touch is jus chillin in my drawer). but android is important for me it connects me to my family members and friends half the world away and it just makes my life easier (word up to google maps and navi) i was also tired of apple always trying to outfox their customers, treating us like a buncha little kids. android is just better and i know my gut feeling is it only gets better.

    Android is my life because I am a tech guy and android lets you customize your phone your way.

  • Flafire03

    When it comes to phones Android is my life. I believe in android because I believe in the freedom to make a phone for your needs and not be forced to use a phone based on their design, or be restricted by Apple who designed a great product but restrict it like a modern day gestapo. I believe in android, promote it and support. So give me that friggin tablet please!

  • Android is now my life after switching from Apple phone products. I would love to make it my tablet of choice also!!!I love the custom roms and having control of my device!!

  • Sal Pina

    Android is in my life, because Droid 1 introduced me to Android. Life was so boring prior to owning my D1, the possibilities are so many and the ability to customize as well as personalize the phone is awesome. Android gave me the freedom to explore, find and dream. Being able to make my phone so unique that iphone users regret their purchase is so gratifying. Also, waiting in suspense for developers to make something so good even better is exciting, I always look forward to the next custom rom and/or firmware version. This is why Android is here to stay for me.  Keep it going Android and Droid Life, you’re the best!

  • capn_ryan

    Android is in my life cause it’s mt first smartphone. Without help from a friend I would be using iCrap right now. Besides android is freedom. Completely open source represents exactly what we stand for as a people. So ya android is in my life because we have freedom to do as we wish with the things we purchased. We have complete control over what we pay for.

  • Chad Mosley

    Android is just epic. My power went out a little bit ago from a bad storm here in Ohio. So I was able to listen to the police scanner while watching and updating the local weather radar while in the basement and staying safe. Its nice to be able to do more than one thing with a phone at a time and knowing that what ever information I may need is just right at the tip of my finger. 

  • Jtjcman

    Droid is simply amazing and the best platform hands down. I want this Tab!

  • Joshua Hendrix

    Android is my life because I am not a corporate sell out. I am not a cookie cutter human. I am not dictated by what people tell me to be. I am not wanted because of my branding, but for rather for what I am. I am not proprietary, over priced, or underpowered. 
    But rather, I am who I want to be. I am customizable. I am truly powerful. I am feature filled. I am just awesome.
    I AM OPEN SOURCE.
    My phone shows who I am. Not what the man says I should be.
    Thats why Android is my life.

    Android is the answer to my needs.  I’ve tried iOS and was never fully happy; before that I used WinMo and was never even happy at all.  I’m even fine putting up with the Android software bugs and immaturity, which is the price you pay for freedom and choice.  I’m sold into the system and never lookin back!

    Android makes it so I can post all my pictures of my twin baby girls.  We live in the middle of no where so I only have my phone as internet and love for all my family to see my babies.

  • My whole family has androids, my wife and I have the Incredible and my son has the LG Ally.  We use it for everything from shopping using the Cozi app for the shopping list and our appointments. We are a non cable house so having Netflix on android now is awsome, perfect for 5 hour trips to Cape May. My 9 yr old uses his Ally for games, forgoing buying the 3DS he is saving his allowance to get an early upgrade to the Sony Xperia Play. Access to all our pictures via the WD Photo app and the NAS drive allows my wife to show all her friends at work her pictures without having to keep them on multiple devices. And finally using Lookout i can find my son in real time anytime which is very comforting.

    I use Android because I initally had a Windows Mobile back in the day (About 5 years ago, Android wasnt out at the time) and sure it got the job done, but it was always such a battle/struggle between me and the phone. It was such a pain in the ass to do anything, I eventually stop using most functions, ie. the reasons why i bought the phone, and just used it as a portable telephone, nothing more, and just used a actual PC to take care of business. Eventually Android came out (I had to wait a little while before I had enough money for a new phone) and waited till android made some improvements. This phone/OS (Droid X) saved my ass, in one way or another. Everything is so intuitive and so easy. Best phone ever.  Also I should mention, just before I bought the Droid X, I did try to use my sister’s Ipod Touch to test drive the iOS for a few months, and hated every minute of it and  I gave it a solid chance too.

That goes for EVERY phone on the market prior to the OG Droid. I am a tinkerer and very particular about how things work. To the other OS’s out there: I’m not an idiot, you don’t have to hold my hand, I can think for myself, and I don’t necessarily like things the way you do. #kthankxbye

    can go on and on.

     

    Or we can go with this one… I was hooked on drugs, a drunk and compulsive gambler, then I got an Android and it saved my life! Oh and it helped me find God too!!

    Now hook me up with a tablet! please?

  • Android is in my life because I wanted a phone OS that let me customize it’s interface however I so choose.  If I wanted to cram every bit of information I wanted on the home screen, it could only be done with Android.  Well at least without hacking the hell out of an iPhone.  I have done everything i wanted with basic free apps.  I look forward to having this open system power the future hardware I purchase in the future.

I researched it a bit and learned it was customiseable. Eventually i bought the samsung vibrant and havent looked back. I gotta say dont miss blackberry.

  • The reason Android is in my life deals with how open it is.  Thanks to the huge developer community, there is a plethora of hacks and mods I can apply to my phone to make it awesome.  Out of the box, without any rooting or modifications, I can customize just about everything.  In this day and age, handheld devices are becoming more and more integral.  Having an open device that allows you to have freedom is a necessity.  Android satisfies that perfectly, much better than any other widespread mobile operating system.

    Android is in my life because I’m American and I like freedom. Owning an iPhone would kind of be like living under a communist government, which doesn’t fly with me. I just can’t deal with the restricted confines of a walled garden, and Android is the obvious choice for the most power and freedom in a mobile device. Android gives me choice amongst a whole army of devices and carriers and allows me to tweak endlessly like I enjoy doing.

    Android is in my life because it helps keep my life in balance. As a 20 year old college student with Cystic Fibrosis, the vast number of apps available help me keep up with doctors appointments along with keeping up with all the meds I take. It also helps me keep up with assignments in class through class email so i don’t fall behind. It’s also a good way to pass time as I am waiting for my classes to start or those long waits in the lobby at the doctor when I have been sitting out there for 30 minutes longer then I was supposed too. 

  • I love android because it isn’t so anal like ios, don’t get me wrong apple makes desirable hardware but there software leaves something to be desired. thats why i just sold my iphone because it’s soo boring!

And being able to tell everyone I know I have the coolest phone ever made (Droid incredible). droid is the single greatest thiing to come to phone ever period.

    Android is in my life for one simple reason. Customization. Though that’s more and more becoming not the case so much anymore. Though still that is the reason I love android. One day I can have a stock android device, the next I can have sense 3.0, then i*Phone, and the next WP7. And being able to tell everyone I know I have the coolest phone ever made (Droid incredible). droid is the single greatest thiing to come to phone ever period.

    Android is in my (droid) life because I love to customize everything I own.  From my laptop to my phone I have tinkered with the innards of it all.  I can’t do that as well with the i*hone as I can with my OG droid.  I can’t wait for a droid tablet so I can start programming it myself.

  • Tfkroberts

    It gets me to places, helps me find things, keeps my life organize and my toddler entertained. 

  • Android is in my life because of my almost compulsive need to tinker.  With android I can adjust and tweak EVERYTHING to my hearts content.  The looks of surprise, jealousy, and outright hatred I receive from i*hone users when I show them my tricked out Android phone loaded with apps that do everything theirs can do and more make it even more delicious.  Once I dipped my foot into android, I had to bring my whole family with me. Starting with 4 OG droids, and moving on to two evos, a droid x, and soon a droid charge, my family is definitely an android family.

  • DaStubert

    Android is in my life because I do not like Microsoft or Apple. I feel that one is a money hungry machine, and the other is a money hungry machine with a fanatic group of followers. Android may go that route soon, but for now it offers more freedom than the others. VIVA ANDROID!!

    Is there really any other way to live life. I have to admit I tried the dark side with that fruit company and felt like I was packaged away in a cute little box that was so tight I could not breath. Finally I came to my senses and came back to Android and my ultra sweet DX. I have never looked back or regretted that decision. So what, yes, I have had to flash my DX at least 3 times to factory setting after I screwed it up playing with it and rooting around like some sort of super user or something. But damn it I was FREE. I could make that little sexy HUMMER of a device do anything I want it to do and you know what my DROID loves pleasing me. I don’t care if you don’t get it. You go ahead and play in your app store, and brag about a device that just works, in the mean time I will keep making my DX work for me and not against me. I AM FREE I AM FREE! HUUURAAAAAHHHHH!

Silly iphone fans, options are for android fans:)

    Android is in my life because I finally learned how much iPhone is the suck.

  • Ever since stepping into a higher role in the company I worked in, it was necessary to upgrade my phone.  When I started it was a blackberry, but I was missing all the amazing things that made having a smartphone fun.  I looked and looked until I came upon the Droid Incredible.

    This was the right one for me.  Not just because it was a phone that did more than Blackberry could imagine, but because it had an operating system that was highly functional, very easy to navigate and even easier to customize to my liking.

    Android has been an integral part of the basic work day and my regular life because of what the system can do.  Be it having a browser that was smoother and “Flash”y (pardon the pun), or the thousands upon thousands of apps that can make my phone my own, and hey, there’s that thing about having a smartphone that’s really FUN!

    Android kept me from going over to Blackberry and even the iPhone. When the Original Droid started leaking I kept tabs on it day in and day out wondering if some form of Android would ever see the day of light. Since I’ve had my Original Droid, it is now rooted running GingerBread. It helps me with my day to day routines at work when I’m running around the plant at work keeping track of help desk tickets, sending and replying emails, viewing PDFs and more.

    I work in IT/MIS, so having this tablet would allow me to be more productive due to the bigger screen. Having the smaller display on my Original Droid does hold me back in certain ways. For example, remoting into workstations on a small screen is a pain. A tablet like this would help me be even more productive and would solve my remote desktop woes. Plus the added benefit is for during the school semesters so I don’t have to lug around a laptop to classes or anything.

    Android is my life because anything apple can do we can do better.

  • Ten years ago, I sold cell phones at Radio Shack. You know, when color screens were the new, exciting thing…and I’ve loved new gadgetry ever since, but haven’t always had the funds to have the things I wanted. 

    About this time last year, I knew my contract was coming up for renewal and I started researching to decide what phone I wanted – I had fallen in love with the original Droid when I first saw it, but I knew that by the time I got it in July, it would be fairly old for a phone’s life cycle, and I really didn’t know much about Android. So I started Googling and ended up here at Droid Life. I asked a fair number of really dumb questions, read everything I could find here and elsewhere, and settled on a Droid X shortly before launch. I was the first person to pre-order it at my then-local Best Buy in Burlington, VT, and picked it up on launch day. Edit: we were pretty broke at the time, but my wife, a massage therapist, saved her cash tips for quite a while to surprise me with preordering the X for my birthday, and now she really wants a tablet, so I’d love to be able to win her one!

    Since then, thanks to this amazing site, I’ve learned to root it, load a custom ROM, I’ve discovered a ton of apps and uses for my phone that I probably never would have thought of on my own. Now I have a Nook Color running CM7 as well as my X running Liberty GB, and I just can’t get enough! I’m actually looking into going back to school for programming, just because it’s all so fascinating and I want to understand more of how it works. (So in a year or so, I’ll send you guys an email asking you to be my beta testers for an app lol)

    I even ended up working in Best Buy’s mobile department for a while when I first got down here to FL, which was an interesting experience that ranged from fun to obnoxious, but the funniest part was that I knew more about the phones, their specs, and their capabilities than my manager or the VZW rep.

Anywhere I go I have Android to entertain me, fix problems for me, challenge me, teach me new things, keep me in touch with anyone anytime, have my music collection in my pocket, and the list goes on. But the main reason I bought my first Droid 1 is I have a camera, camcorder, music player, GPS, Personal Asst., computer, and last but not least phone all in one device that fits in my pocket. I’m now on my 3rd Android device the HTC Thunderbolt and have got 2 of my family members using Android in there life’s daily.

    I would say that Android is in my life because I am against anything i*hone!  I was a big fan of Wind*ws Phone (I know, I was new) and loved how modifiable the phones were (SPB mobile shell…).  Then the stars aligned and I was up for an update on my Verizon account.  That was the day that the Droid X came out!  A lot of my friends had the OG Droid but I didn’t fully understand what all the buss was about.  NOW I KNOW.  I have been in love with my phone from day one.  I am seriously thinking about getting the X2 simply because I love this phone.  I don’t need LTE yet and the X2 is all the changes I hope for.  So, simply put! I love that Droid does!  And boy does it!  There is no way to explain how awesome it is to be connected all the time and have unlimited information at your finger tips when you need it!

  • My Droid android phone replaced many devices and allowed me to say good bye to my POS iphone.Android gives me freedom to do and install what I want. Android is truly AMERICAN!

  • Bosh

    Honeycomb is my favorite feature.i wanted a android device since the motorola droid came out and haven’t had the pleasure of owning any android device i would be honored to win this

  • Lavardi101

    My phone running Android runs my life I’m always on it

  • Android is in my life because of friend of mine introduced me to it. He showed me how to write programs, manipulate my phone, and make it exactly the way I wanted it. He even bought me my first Droid. That was until he passed away in 2009, by suicide. Ill never know why, but I know Ill keep on loving ANDROID and everything he taught me about it!!!

  • Android is my life because of all the great apps available.

  • I’ll admit it. At first, I had no interest in Android.

    When my wife first gave me permission to start shopping for a smartphone (married life, ain’t it grand?), I confess to have been lusting after the possibility of a Verizon iPhone (this was the summer of last year). I waited six months in vain before finally “settling” (hah) for a Droid X last winter.

    Within a week I was forsaking Apple products forever. Once I really started exploring what the phone could do — especially when rooted and ROM’d — and how customizable it was, how much more it was than a simple app jukebox, I couldn’t satisfy my hunger for all things Android. Color me a full blown Droidophile, because at this point all I want from my technological world is an unlocked bootloader and CM7 on my DX.

    Android is in my life because I like the freedom of choice. I like to be able to customize my device to feel like it was created just for me.

  • Mario

    Because I am a power user and I prefer controlling my device rather than letting it control me 🙂

    Android is in my life because lets be honest. Who want’s to have to do work while they are at their job???

  • Deshoncoleman

    Android is in my life because, I like options!

  • Android is in my life because it is infinitely customizable.  It’s only limits are my imagination and skill.

  • Android is in my life because no one ever calls me and I wanted a phone that did something other than be a contact number for billing collectors.

  • Julieabajian14

    Android is not my life, but I feel like it basically my life because of how much my boyfriend obsesses over Android.  So having a tablet to video chat with him about DROID-LIFE and his obsession about it would make it easier to talk to him. 

  • PaulQ

    Android is the puppy I never had … lots of fun to play with and has grown into a dependable extension of my right arm!

  • Why is Android in my life?  Simple answer: Android is simply amazing.

    Back a few years ago, when I was just getting started in business work, and managing a business, I needed a phone that would work well, help me prioritize my life, my tasks, my calendar, and something awesome. I looked all around at phones, blackberries, and feature phones (this was before the Droid launch). I eventually just gave up. Then I saw the Droid launch and the website Verizon put together, and it was simply exactly what I needed. I’ve been with my Droid ever since, however, my work keeps getting more and more demanding as I meet with clients, and need to get signatures, make notes, and have them available wherever I go. My Droid is amazing, but just doesn’t cut it anymore.

    I would love to win this tablet. That would be amazing. Never really won anything before. So I’m hoping I get it. I’d be using it all day everyday. 

    Thanks DroidLife for this opportunity to hopefully get something! 🙂 Haha. You guys are awesome! Been reading ever since you guys started.

  • The question is why wouldn’t android be in my life. The countless hours spent tampering with the kernels, voltage, framework, changing roms has been a great experience. I will forever have an android phone <3

  • I made sure to convert my brother and now my dad (for someone that hates technology that’s big plus he says he likes it).  My mother is next……  would love to use this for my business. 

  • Anonymous

    The reason why android is in my life is because my Samsung Rogue was a hunk of junk, I went through 4 of them in 2 weeks due to defects, and VZW said i could choose another phone and pay the diff. So I walked over to the Droid Eris. Immediate love! haha. I liked the smooth HTC Sense overlay. So I chose it. I had it until March 17th. (you know what day that was!) 

  • I love my DroidX phone!  I have my wife, parents, brother, and sister-in-law all hooked on it.  I even have my parents running rooted Moto Droids!

    Android is in my life because it works and integrates with my technology life!

  • CrayzeeJoe

    I got Android in my life to allow me more efficiency
    Only problem is: I got a tablet deficiency

    If I could win this Iconia manufactured by Acer
    It could solve the issue as my deficiency eraser!

    I’d be so happy I would cry til my eyes dried out
    Then I’m off with my Iconia to the Honeycomb Hidout!

    • CrayzeeJoe

      DANG!  I hate that I misspelled hideout and I can’t change it.  SMH! Hopefully you still get the picture.

  • I no longer remember how to live without Android.  My phone is my life. My life is in my phone. GPS, Calendar, FB.  Sure, those things are on other smartphones but the only reason I got a smartphone was because of Android. Else i’d still be on a feature or more basic phone.  I’m considering naming a child Android (Andy for short) in the future.

  • Android became a part of my life about a year and a half ago with my purchase of my OG Droid.  I was honestly amazed by the world that it opened up to me.

    My OG Droid was my first android phone, and my first smartphone…I always thought when the i*hone came to verizon that I would get one.  Then I heard about android.  I got my OG and never looked back.

  • Michalev

    I have always been a fan of the open software.  When the OG came out, and my upgrade with big red was up, i knew i had to have one.

  • I really love Android 24/7 using Android all I nead to complete my life is a tablet I’ve got a Nexus S, Google TV and this can complete me!!!!!!!

  • Richard Hayden

    Android is in my life becasue I fortunately bought the D1 when it first came out and I have been glued to it ever since.

    Android has been a part of my life since I bought the OG droid when it first cam out. Shortly after I found this website and became a religious reader. I then rooted my droid using the instructions you provides. Ever since then I have continuously changed my themes, roms, and rebooting whenever needed. I have found that I have enjoyed doing things with my phone so much that this summer I am starting college at full sail university to get a mobile development bachelors degree. After wards I am hoping to get a job with google on the Android Team. Since the day I have picked up my first droid I have fallen in love with android and it has become a huge part of my life.

  • Bkerk87

    Android is pure customization at its finest. Open access makes for the best possible experience

  • Moliveira1025

    Android is in my life because it helps me stay in touch with my family and friends. It helps me get work done and helps me get info I want on the go. An android tab would really make things great. Especially typing comments like this on message boards. A big screen would really be easy on my eyes.

  • Greg

    Android is in my life because I don’t like walled gardens.

  • Kselby7

    Android is in my life because when I first set my eyes on the OG droid I knew I had to have it. I then switched from at&t to verizon just so I could get the droid rather than the subpar i*hone.

  • Android is in my life because I want to be using an operating system (on phone and/or tablet) that is not going to be dead next week and one that is growing and expanding its usefulness

  • Android is in my life because I wanted to be able to stay updated on the go and didn’t want an iPhone. It also got me interested in software and mobile development.

  • Android is in my life because of their continued dominance and expansion over the phone market.  And this is done by one lifetime lesson…sharing.  The open source software can be used by multiple companies to make many choices for consumers.  This makes our lives easier and our phones better.  Thank you Android.

  • RIT Quidditch

    Android is in my life to defeat Voldemort.

  • Damn. Never really thought about it till now. Android really has become
    my life. I play in some bands and such and I basically write all my
    lyrics on my phone. When I’m not in a studio or reading posts from droid
    life on Google Reader, then I’m on Xda modifying my phone. It’s truly
    replaced my laptop, my tv, and my gameboy ;p I’ve only had two android
    phones, the D1 and the Fascinate, but it’s crazy how much I’ve loved the
    devices equally.  I know everyone and their sister has an issue with
    Samsung but I’ve kinda learned to put all that out of my mind. I think
    the beauty of Android is the ability to go from fully bloated touchwiz
    ROMs to stripped down, snappy AOSP ROMs/ whatever you want. Android
    signifies the freedom that I think everyone should have when they spend
    money on something and I love it more for that each day.

  • Jess Bundy

    Android helps me hold together what would otherwise be a chaotic life! Android allows me to have one go-to device to access everything in my life, from college, to work, to bills, and entertainment as well! I cant even imagine what my life would be like without the help of my android-based, and tech-based life!

  • jlep.s1

    Android is in my life because it’s open-ness and great usability put it far above all other phones on the market. Also in my life because Google decided to grace us with its creation. 

  • Scottkerrigan

    Android is my life because it got me into computers. Before I bought my droid I was just another technically challenged person. Now I am free from the restraints that most companies put on technology, and am going to Notre Dame to get a degree in computer science so I can hopefully one day work towards the improvement of the operating system that I have come to love. 

  • GCSkater

    Android is in my life because I needed  something better than a Iphone 3G. Finally left my parents plan and hopped on the Thunderbolt bandwagon in early December. And after a 3 month long stretch of release day lies, I finally got my first Android. Completely worth it.

  • Anonymous

    long story short i broke my blackberry at the skatepark and my dad told me we were ready for upgrades anyways. he introduced me to the OG droid and it was over after that, android is simply amazing. next upgrade came the droid x and soon will come the bionic. android is definately here to stay.

  • Griffintactical

    life!? what other option is there?

  • Shadowlore

    Android is in my life, because as a BES admin I finally had to admit that Blackberries weren’t cutting it for all my personal and business needs. I not only wanted the flexibility to play some better games, but HAD to have the functionality of LogMeIn Ignition to support my clients when not in front of a PC. I’ve since sold our CIO on android instead of BB’s and we’re making the migration of our handsets currently. We’ve added multiple Motorola Xooms to the mix now, yet the company refuses to allow me to have one. Thus the support options are a bit ridiculous for me. Additionally, the option to use LogMeIn on a larger screen than my DX would be perfect. 🙂 So consider this my entry… The Acer Iconia may not be what you would consider ‘top notch’ but for someone not having one for their own use (especially when they’re forced to support tablets), it’d be perfect. 🙂

    Android is life because I was a diehard Blackberry user for years but became gradually more aggravated with their lack of app development and hardware progression. I bought a HTC TP2 and put 2.1 on it then switched to an HTC Hero then the Evo. I’m rocking the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7in and 10.1. I manage mobility for my company in addition to app development that pertains to our ordering system. The incorporation of tablets into our business is a goal of mine and I intend to accomplish this with Android tablets such as the Acer.

  • Android keeps all my contacts organized in my google account and when I switch phones (3x) already My contacts come right back instantly. (not to mention the countless resets due to rooting) The music on my phone allows me to leave my iPod at home most of the time.

    Android is in my life because I see it as an empowering operating system for phones.  It allows devs of all kinds to do what they do best, and doing so benefits everybody.  It allows for the average user to be able to show their friends with iPhones something awesome, and make them jealous.  It allows for linux development!  It enables everybody who uses it, and the only time it ever holds people back is when manufacturers fail to realize what is best for the community, and do what they think will benefit them the most, which hasn’t proven to do so..

    Android is in my life because of its customizability. You can change the wallpaper’s, notifications, and even uninstall apps you don’t like. You also can root it giving your phone more potential. Android has many manufactures and has unique phone forms like the htc thunderbolt, or the salsa, or the backflip which allows me my choice. This is why i will stay android forever.

    Android is in my life for one reason … It is choices! There are so many options to choose from right now. All the widgets, customization of my homescreen, choosing which market to buy my apps from, soon music and movies on all devices and finally I don’t have to wear that stupid black turlteneck because I have a choice in what I want to wear. Choice! Droid life payce I’m out! *drops microphone

    My Thunderbolt is my first Android phone. I love it even through the reboot trouble after the update. The HTC Sense interface is smoother than anything Ive ever used on a touch screen phone before. I’m a true believer now in the Android OS.

    Android is in my life actually thanks to my girlfriend, I needed a good cell that could do alot more than what I had and she was already on droid so talked me into it glad she did ill never not have one now.

  • Android is in my life because it is a great platform for developers, it’s an open platform, and it’s not owned by Apple. Not only that, but it works well… Too bad some other mobile devices made by companies named after fruits don’t compare 😀

    I’m one of the first adopter of the G1..i belived so much in Android and today, i can say that i’m satisfied: Android rules the world and IceCream is going to leave ALL other OS behind.
    Android is my life and it’s everywhere: i got Android’s puzzle and pictures everywhere in my room, cause i love to see the green robot floating trough my days.
    Android is an unique love: source code, openess, apps, rooting, CyanogenMod and so much fun..thing that you won’t find everywhere.Android is our life. It doesn’t matter if i don’t win the contest..i just tryied to share my thoghts :)Happy android to everyone 🙂

    Android is in my life to make it more organized and capable. I love being able to communicate in almost any form I need to, to the people I care about most. And even though my Droid X doesn’t have a front facing camera, it doesn’t keep me from finding a mirror and using tango to video call if needed. 😉

    Android is my life because I’ve always been a fan of Google and their products. Google makes products that make my life easier. Google Maps is just one example…It’s a great way to search for hotels while traveling on vacations/trips or searching for local businesses and calling them straight from the app. I love watching Netflix from my Google TV..the user interface is much better than the interface from my Sony TV or Wii. I love the fact that I can control my TV from the Google TV app when the remote isn’t anywhere in sight. I could go on and on.

  • Malderman2

    Android allows me to keep everything I need (scheduling / business e-mail / GPS / internet access (especially Droid Life) / telephone) and want (podcasts / music / games / StumbleUpon) in the palm of my hand.  My Droid X has effectively replaced most of my computer usage.  A brand new Acer Iconia would help me use my computer even less!

    While Dj-ing a wedding last week the best man requested a song.  We did not have it, and had no wifi connection at the location.  Thanks to my Droid we were able to download the song, plug the Droid into the DJ equipment, and make the wedding party happy.  Droid Does.  Everything. 

  • Xboxkid

    Android is in my life because my sister is a tech geek and was following the DROID 1 since before the original DROID DOES commercial aired. My next upgrade wasnt for sometime after that so I was drooling over her phone and over droid-life for over a year. Then I got my incredible last September. It was the best day of my life.

  • Julian Angue

    Android is in my life to fill a sort of emptiness or void I have had for a long period of my life. I can depend on Android unlike some people in my life. Android is my best friend for keeping me up to date with friends, Droid-Life, my financial assistant, etc. Thank you Android. I love you.

  • Craigg

    Android is in my life for many reasons. It is an indispensable business tool. I use it to download critical files no matter where I’m located. I can set up a hotspot when needed. Clients are surprised when I process their credit card payment on my Droid. I love the ability to access bank and brokerage accounts on the fly and even deposit checks electronically by just taking a picture of the check. This is just a sampling of the many features I depend on since becoming a Droid fan 🙂

  • Ignitros

    Android gives me the ability to customize they way I organize my life. Other OS’s make you view things the way some engineers feel you should. I like choice, personalization… just making things my own. That’s why I love Android!!!

    I was a Verizon rep and the first time i used a d1 i fell in love, i forked out 500 bucks almost lost my wife and now  i am indulging in all the great custom roms and themes that these great developers bring our community. In the phone world there is defiantly no match to the comradery that android brings for rooters and non-rooters. I just hope android will live on as a open OS and stay away from looked BL.  O ya and if i win my daughter said its hers. So i guess im doing this for her. although you know that B**** will be rooted, custom hello kitty theme, you know a daddy has to hook his lil girl up lol. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Android runs every day of my busy life…I have OCD and ADHD and I am constantly distracted or forget my schedule.  Android is set up perfectly so that I am always within a hand’s reach of productivity.  Constant web browsing is essential, as well as multiple email accounts for my line of work and document viewing.  Without it, I would be completely lost.

    Android is my life because android is the best os out there. I have had winows mobile, blackberry, symbian, and various other phones over the years and android kills them all. I even owned the first iphone and never again will my hands touch IO S phones. Android is the nicest fastest platform. It gives us the right to use it how we want too. Android is in my life and Droid-Life.com is my number 1 app. I read the articles and follow on twitter every day. Im Addicted

    Android is in my life to make my life easier, while keeping me entertained.

  • Android is in my life, mostly by accident. Life led me to where I had to get rid of my old phone, my old carrier, and I was lost in a sea of hype and confusion. Then out of the abyss came a phone. It’s name, was Droid. I didn’t really think twice about it, until I got it and used it and I was hooked. Android became the only phone OS in my life from there, but a wee year and a half ago. I can’t imagine another interface that gives me the control and the fun (yes, UI’s can be fun), that Android gave me. So now I have it in my phone, on my ereader, and maybe someday…on my tablet. Someday.

  • Android is in my life because it makes everything better!  As we sat in a Tornado watch here in the Kansas City area today, I had my phone with me as we took shelter.  I was able to text family and friends, listen to live weather reports on my Radio app, and even watch streaming news coverage on the local site’s live web feed on their website (in FLASH.)  Luckily the damage was very minimal, and not in my immediate area.

  • nglofton

    Wait, this is not possible. Android can not be in one’s life. We are all apart of Android’s life. Hence Droid Life.

  • Android is in my life, purely by chance. I bought a launch day Droid Incredible to replace an old LG enV2 and never looked back. I thought it was so sexy and thin.From then on it was downloading apps, using the GPS, taking so many photos, videos, rooting, flashing, tweaking, and its all been a blast.  I now own a Thunderbolt and will continue my Android journey. The hard part is waiting for the newest features to come out because Android will never stop expanding! Long live the little green robot.

  • Navy Android

    Android is in my life because it stands for freedom. Freedom from the opressive force that is Apple with the IClone and how they have become the very intity that they set out to topple back in 1984. I am in the Navy and Freedom from opression is what we support, so therefore, Android.

  • GraveHypothesis

    I’ve actually been coming to this Epicsite before I even had a Droid (my previous phone was an LG Dare :/ ). I always had to research things fully before jumping into it, and by chance, I found Droid-Life. From the very first time I came here Ive been hooked. Just the way you all support us is a Godsend. You all truly love Droid as much as all of us (if not alittle bit more) and that shows. So, having a avid hatred for the i*hone and everything apple, Google was my weapon of choice against the darkness covering this land. And Droid-Life was my armory. Luckily I’ve been with Big Red since the merger with Alltel, so I had an fine selection of Android awesomeness. I went from lusting over the OG, to really wanting the DInc, and then finally putting my sights on the DX, which I love more than anything. And because of you guys, I actually got the balls to root and customize to my heart’s desire 🙂

  • Binglut9

    Android is the best for many reasons but the sole reason for me is choice! Android provides choice, want a big screen phone that’s cool we got it, want a fast processor that’s cool we got that too, want a gaming phone well guess what we got that, need a keyboard you guessed it we got those, need a FCC to Skype with friends and family well of course we have many, and I think everyone knows what I am getting at but as a customer the best thing is choice from highend smartphones to the low ends there us something for everybody!

  • circustravis

    I was a Windows Mobile guy for many years after switching from a Handspring Visorphone. Once Microsoft made the decision to abandon WinMo and go with Windows Phone 7, I knew that development of apps for my winmo 6.1 phone would be dead. I was due for an upgrade, so I decided to give Google a shot. My wife and I were both using a Samsung Omnia at the time, and she hated it so much that she wanted to go back to using a dumbphone. We were only eligible for 1 upgrade, but VZW was offering the Droid 1 for buy one get one free. I called them up and cajoled them into giving me the deal, even though I didn’t technically qualify for it. 2 days later, they came in the mail. It was my anniversary, and I made the risky move of giving my wife her first Droid as a gift. Fortunately she loved it, so the gamble paid off. I told her, “Oh and by the way, they were buy one, get one free, so I got one for myself too.” She liked the phone so much that she didn’t even get mad.

I originally got into Android by a friend recommending I do so. I am lucky enough to have had a couple of great friends that have enjoyed Android and Linux OS years before I and it has quickly become one of my biggest passions. If I have any problems whatsoever I know I have my friend @mahkee right around the corner to help me out. I have become a pretty active poster over in the Samsung Vibrant section of XDA providing any help when I can (although I must confess I am still a “NOOB”). I do this because I feel that is the core of what Android is and should be. A community of people helping people whenever  they can. I am lucky enough to have friends I can go to for help, but others may not and thanks to sites like this and pretty much any Android related sites they do now. Regardless we are all winners with Android. Oh and btw down with @akaskriller. Good luck! =)

    Android is in my life because I need an Acer Iconia Tablet!

  • Android is my life because a) i use it all day on my phones, and b) because i come home from school every day and tinker and read about it… so i guess it holds a solid 7 hour a day block. and mainly because Matt4542 is my bitch, and if i win, i can bitch to him about my tablet.

  • I 1st came to the Android scene from the iPhone back in ’08. Since Day one I have been developing for different devices I own. Right now, on my desk, I have a MT3G, MT3GSlide, Droid, G2, and a G2x. I love developing for Android and the community, it’s a great pass-time, a great learning experience, and I get to meet a lot of great people.

    Android is in my life because of the DROID. I originally bought one for the wife because she complained so much about how big of a piece of crap her blackberry was. After she got her Droid I was able to play with it. I was completely blown away by how fast it ran and the slick user interface. So a month later I purchased my self a Droid. Shortly after I bought my Droid I found Droid life. Droid life helped me root my phone and really showed me my phones true potential. After that its been non stop android. I started showing off my sweet Android phone to everyone I knew. They all (except one) now have Android phones. I was even able to talk a couple of them in to rooting their phones. I starting flashing different roms about every other day. always looking for that one Rom that’s a little smoother or a little faster then the last. Nowadays my Android obsession is still going strong. I have a thunderbolt, wife has an incredible, and I also bought her a xoom. I’m always looking around the internet for the next cool Android thing to try, but I always wake up and check Droid life first.

    Ever since I purchased my G1 I have been a fan of Android. It has given me a hobby for my spare time and helped me learn about Linux. When I upgraded to the OG Droid I immediately looked on the web for a place to find the latest news and information. This led me to Droid-Life and it immediately became a site I check multiple times a day. Keep up the good work! 

  • Android is my life because it is open and customizable.  I love to be able to change to different roms on a whim

  • Ryan

    Android is in my life because i would be lost without it. I had an itouch before android but when i switched it was like night and day. I have never looked back and sold my ipod touch to pay for apps. Android is like heaven on earth!

  • Android is my life for a few main reasons… I love how open it is (for the most part), its better than iOS, i love developing apps and making themes, its better than iOS, i love he community for its help and ROMs, and its better than iOS

  • My job is to give people money when they can’t work.  Android expedites that process and lets me get their money to them faster.

  • Harle183

    I am disabled. Android makes things easier and fun. It gives me somthing to do when theere’s no one around to talk to or play a game with. It’s easy to customize even for me and suits my needs very well. I don’t think an i*hone could come close to giving me the pleasure I take from making my Incredible 2 mine and  mine exclusively. No 2 phones are the same with rooting thats what makes Android so great. Now if I could only get this bootloader unlocked! I’m looking at you HTC!

    Android is my life and has saved me from the dark side. Once upon a time I owned an iPod Touch, but after buying an Incredible I saw the true power of the force and I’ve never looked back. My xoom has given me even more power! 🙂

  • John

    I use an android phone because I enjoy experimenting with technology.  As a general rule Google’s services allow me to leverage technology to be more productive, but the android phones are just plan fun to play with.  I still update my Droid even though it has been replaced by a Thunderbolt that has been rooted as well.

    I still keep up a bit with iPhones and Windows Phone 7 a bit.  Competition is important to spur innovation.  I wouldn’t be upset if Openmoko or another linux based cell phone operating system were to become popular.  Android seems to be the most popular, useful, and open of the major operating system for cell phones, but options and alternatives are important.

    Now if we can work on a way to power my Thunderbolt from pedaling my bike….

  • Kevinmills7

    Android is in my life because of that awesome little green guy, oh and the openness of it is a nice touch too….. 🙂

  • Android is in my life b/c no other OS can beat its customization, functions, and growth. Android is ever expanding and adding new and innovative tech to its phones. While other OS are making a living adding expected features, or features that common now, android takes it a step further. Is there another phone that is out that takes video in 3D, or records in 1080p? I think not, and this is the reason why I LOVE android. No matter how old your phone is you are not left out of the new stuff. You can always root your phone and add features of new software updates. Android is #Winning, And the other OS needs to #PlanBetter

  • Android is in my life because I love technology, love open source, and have always been a hacker at heart. I have always had a need to tweak whatever I had in my hands, from Legos as a child to my home-built computer in High School. I could never let anything stay “stock” and was driven to find out just how much I could get out of any piece of technology. Android has given me endless opportunities for this, and Honeycomb is a new vector I have yet to explore and look forward to doing so

    This why I love android, I had a specific theme I wanted to try on my phone and wanted a specific battery widget. After looking pretty extensively for it, I posted on Reddit asking if anyone knows of the widget I was looking for or if a dev could make one. Its been a day and Reddit user jcarpenter made exactly what I was looking for.

There are so many blogs out there like this one to connect Android lovers like me all over the world. I think Android owners share a special connection. I always get a little smirk when I look over at a stranger and see that they’re using an Android phone or tablet.

Do i know when I’m upgrading? No. But I’m here, and I’m gonna give it my best shot.

  • Android is in my life because Google is in my life. Android integration of gmail is a big deal. I also love the voice search and a voice to text. I played with a BlackBerry Playbook and I could not live with out voice to text and Google voice. Android is how Google combines their services to be a productive force. The open source aspect of android can be a thorn of some peoples sides because the do not like BLUR or HTC sense or touch whiz. I try to look at the positive side. It allows us to have amazing devices like the pen input from the HTC flyer. Soon we will be able to control all kinds of devices with [email protected] Rooted or not, most phones allow you to change their looks. This choice is important. It keeps developers of these phones always trying to innovate and refine.

Found a blog called DroidLife ( Pre-Website ) and that was it. Now my wife tells me every week or so that I love my Droid more than her. SHhhh, I wont tell her if you don’t 😉

  • Android is in my life because, well, it stepped up to the plate when nothing else did. After my old phone broke, I decided to remain loyal to Big Red and pick up the OG Droid. It was a little daunting at first, but thanks to Android’s ease of use, the innumerable dedicated and hard-working devs, excellent community support, and my own general excitement over the phone and the OS, I was able to pick it up in no time. I remember rooting the OG back when we didn’t have one-click root, spending countless hours browsing forums and following the crusade for root over at AllDroid, and never looked back. Fast-forward almost two years later, and, thanks to a ton of support from the community (and eternal gratitude for support threads) I still have my same old Droid, except now its rockin CM7 and being as badass as it was when I first cracked open the box. Android isn’t about fanboyism, being part of a cult-like following, or having everything handed to you. It’s a learning experience, without a doubht. However, the Android community is filled with people who are in it solely for the fun and satisfaction of helping out their fellow Android enthusiasts, and seeing their hard work bring joy to countless individuals looking to take their Android experience to the next level. This not only why Android is in my life now, but why it will be in my life in the future as well.

    Android is in my life because I got tired of sitting next to a broken Window with an Apple that was dictating to me how it should be consumed.

    Android is in my life because I love having freedom to do as I wish with my devices. Also, apps are free/cheap and the interface is pretty spiffy!

  • Shadesmctuba

    Android is in my life because I am, in fact, an android. This seemed like the natural choice.

  • Itsjohnchoi

    Android is in my life for one huge reason compared to everything else:the app market. By far the best apps and best developers. The prices are so much better and nobody wants to deal with a 3rd party storage tha only allows you to do tranfer through it (itunes)

    Also another huge reason android is in my life. SD cards. Abolute savior and essentially unlimited storage.

  • Exilentone

    Android is not in my life yet, But I want to make it a part of my everyday grind.

  • Android is in my life because of the openness of it.  I don’t have some power hungry geek tellng me what I need on my phone.  I get to decided.

  • android is my life b/c iphones are overrated and droids are INCREDIBLE!

  • Tonycross2

    Android is in my life because it is the best thing out there.

  • Tobopo

    Been rocking my OG Droid since day one, rooted it (and unrooted then re-rooted it) the hard/scary way, talked a few friends and most of my family out of i*hones and into the android/droid world then proceded to help them root.

    So yeah, lots of droid does love right here =)

    Android is in my life because my wife wanted a smart phone and the original Droid was on sale BOGO @ the Verzion store.  I actually wanted a Windows phone but it wasn’t included in the sale.  I have since seen the error of my ways and haven’t looked back.

  • Sovalon

    Android is my life because in life you get to choose.  I get to choose what carrier I want, the phone manufactures, skins, launchers, etc.  Not so easy with the i*hone.  With Android becoming more and more dominant in the market place, the possibilities are endless and Google will keep putting money into it and making it even better.  I like being free…

  • Hangloose808

    Android is on my life because I had always wanted a droid. My grandma surprised me with one and I was forever hooked. Forget the iPhone, I am still rocking the Original Droid!!

    Android is in my life because like almost everyone else I prefer the ability to mod the device to my liking.  Unlike another popular smartphone developer.

  • Brenda Lee C.

    Android is in my life because there really isn’t anything i can’t do with my device, it keeps all my brothers and sister in contact with me, i can share pics and videos instantly and now i can video chat with them as well. Its a phone, a navi system, and a search engine, also a social network at my fingertips. I love android and i can’t live without it 🙂 I dont even have to pay for text how cool is that, google voice one of my fav apps next to google talk 😉 and of course i get to read all about it here, u guys never miss a beat 🙂 thanx for all the info since i had my OG to now that i have my Thunderbolt

  • malkyri

    android is my life because who else would create software that gives up their monopoly (are listening i*hone) to allow anyone to develop on it.. even the stuff we hate like skins, verizon apps, etc.  that is freedom which is sadly rare these days

  • Mike R

    Android is in my life because it is what came on my phone. 🙂

  • android is in my life because it gives me the option to do what i see is worthy not what others deem worthy. everyday we see and hear ads telling us what and where to eat,drink, go and buy, i draw the line at my device telling me as well. i bought the device, i shouldnt feel as though i leased it.

  • lpklemmer

    Android is now in my life because I’ve been jailbreaking since the days of the 1st ipod touch and it just got old. It’s the same story over and over with the same modifications. Android is so much more open and just makes me happier since I like to tweek things until I can’t possibly think of something else to change.

  • Having Android in my life will make the next 5 months before the “actual” rapture worth living!

  • Michael Obrian Price

    “In a world of doesn’t, Droid does.” The ad for the first Droid really pulled me in. It gave a feeling that change was coming. And we now know that the iPhone doesn’t, and android does.

    Android is in my life because I got tired of Blackberry telling me, hold on something great is coming……. it never did. I’m so glad I moved to android… it was one of my better decisions.

    Android is my life. 
    1.The open platform allows me to do whatever the hell i want to my phone. 
    2.I used to have a blackberry but bought the Droid X as soon as it came back and haven’t looked back since. It is the best phone that i have ever had and i will continue to stick with Android.

    ANDROID FOR LIFE

  • Superfoot

    Android is in my life because I do not want to be restrained, restricted, or a sheep in the flock. I will not drink the Kool-Aid!

  • Ufg8tor1

    I have a DroidX and I honestly couldn’t imagine having any other operating system on my phone than Android.  Nothing like complete freedom to mold the system to the way you want it… And not having to pay for apps that you would otherwise have to pay for from the iTunes store is a great plus!

  • Derricksanders9

    Android is in my life because I finally tapped into my inner geek! I used to have a Storm and hated it so I did some research and fell in love with it. After rooting my first phone (Eris) I was really hooked. I love Android and this site. I have learned so much and am grateful for you guys. I’m now tinkering with my first app! Thank again and keep up the great work!

  • John Gaspardo

    I got the original droid after buying the blackberry storm cause at the time verizon had no good phones. Who wants a shitty blackberry with no good apps that freezes up all the time ? I fell in love and rooted the thing on day one my first rom was smoked glass and i thought it was pretty cool 

  • pgbod

    Android is in my life because it offers its users the opportunity to have a completely unique device tailored to their own desires, rather than forcing users to live with one bland and tired setup for the entire life of their device.

    Oh, and I really enjoy hating on Apple and their annoying ads.

  • Justin Fincher

  • HUMMERdriver

    Android is in my life because Andy’s evil cousin, the DROID, ate all of the apples & blackberries… I wouldn’t be caught dead with an iPhone, but I really was considering the BB storm (until I read all the terrible reviews on it!) So one day I come home from school & noticed I wasn’t receiving any texts …a few minutes later mom comes through the door with a DROID & a DROID Eris 😀
    I recently upgraded to a thunderbolt & hopefully a Xoom sometime this week ( unless I win this lol …pleaseeeeeeeee!!) for college … I love Android & will never have anything else !!!!

  • greyenigma

    Android is my life cause am an original droid owner. My first phone was the first droid the htc dream which debuted on t-mobile on september 23 with bad reviews but I still got it an fell in love wit it. Then I rooted it and truly fell in love with that phone that I had it till the motorola droid came out for verizon on november 6 and I still have it running cm7. My son right now owns my htc dream and he loves it that he is always on it texting and doing all kinds of mods to it. Am planning on getting the droid charge soon and passing my droid OG to my son and keep the android love going between my son and I.

  • MattC67

    Android is in my life because as a long time win mobile user I was tired of a stale OS. It was time to upgrade and I had no desire for another boring Windows phone, Blackberry is OK as long as all you want is email, and I-Phone is a gimmick (plus I didn’t feel like signing all my worldly possessions over to Steve Jobs to join his cult). Then came this glimmer of hope, the droid (og). Many had heard of android with the attempt at the G1. So within the first week the OG was released I had decided it was to be mine. Ever since then I have not looked back. Now with my Droid 2 and waiting for next greatest droid to come out. Hopefully the new tablet I may win will hold me over till I find my new droid.

  • Clskeeper35

    Android id my life simply because Apple is terrible, seriously if there was an all out war would a apple beat an Android, no because machines beat fruits everyday. BAM BA LAM

    Choice
    Carrier, phones, tablets, custom, widgets, wallpaper, apps, on and on,
    You always have choice.  Thanks you Google

  • Vazkor8

    Android is in my life because it was the first smartphone platform that made me actually want a smartphone (and my wife was observant enough to realize it).  I had tried (on friends’ phones) all of the other major players and came away from all of them feeling kind of “it’s ok, I guess, but not something I need.”  Then a co-worker came in with his OG Droid he had picked up on launch day and I was just blown away. I had AT&T at the time and was thinking about switching just for that phone but my contract wasn’t up.  Then Christmas morning I opened this little box under the tree and was blown away by both the Droid and my wife, haven’t looked back since.

    We can all agree that Android is a great OS, but what makes android so special to me is the fact that it brings together two amazing communities: The hacker/developer community and the open source community, both of which have driven android to be what it is today by collaboratively pushing technology to the limit

    I bought my Droid a year ago and thought it would be just another phone. It has turned out to be so much more. Besides all of the obvious other features that make it so great, Android has turned into a hobby that’s taken over my life. I’m constantly researching devices, Roms, apps, and reading DL. I can’t imagine what I did before Android.

Oh and I can remove the SD storage card, swap out the battery and easily root! Oh, and the Android looks surprisingly like a Dalek! How could Android not be in my life!?

    I have an Android in my life as he can do everything my man can’t. I can program him to run smooth or rough, he only does the things I like, I can update and change him whenever I want within 5 mins, he only wakes me up when I tell him to so I can play with him and best of all, I can turn him on with the touch of a button and get him to shut up the same way :-)))

    Android is a great OS that allows me to feel empowered and not contained to a scheme or design of a boring stock UI. I feel in control of the device and not the other way around. I love being able to flash new ROMs, which I think I’m addicted to now. The ability to fully make the device mine and not the manufacturers is epic winning to me. I’ve learned a lot about Linuix s
