    Okay, I'm thinking of trading my old iPhone 3G (have a 3GS anyway) for a Motorola Droid, simply with the intention of messing around a bit with the Android OS and replacing my 3GS as my main audio player (I can't stand syncing with iTunes, and want a bit more space for apps) but I have some questions first:

    1. Does the Droid require syncing software like iTunes, or can I just use Windows' simple drag and drop folder interface (like copying files to a flash drive)?

    2. How is the Droid as an audio player? I mostly listen to audio books, so quality isn't a big concern though.

    3. Can you download files through the web browser (such as music, videos, etc.)?

    4. Are you restricted to signed apps (like the iTunes App Store), or can you install anything you find online?

    1) Nope, everything is over the air or with an SD card. Dropbox does wonders, too.

    2) It works. It's a polished music player, but nothing amazing.

    3) Yep. One of the things I love about it.

    4) You can, it's just a little tricker than just opening the marketplace.
