DROID iDont do movies iDont do bluetooth voice dialing

Whats the point of a large bright screen since droid doesnt to download movies. I mean really this maybe a great phone. the nav is super the voice search is great.

 

I hate apple but the iphone is a entertainment center with a phone. the Droid is a phone with some great apps. Not the same. I bought a phone with a big screen so i could watch movies when I travel. It would appear the Droid is completly incapible of this.

Someone tell me if Im wrong please. No I dont want to spend 2hrs encoding a movie i have watched at home 48 times.

 

 

Frankly other than the voice search and navigation im begining to wonder what exactly the droid does that every other phone doesnt do?

 

why did i compare to an iphone? Thats how this phone is being presented

Here is a list of supported formats: http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/media-formats.html

 

Sorry if your videos on your computer are ripped/encoded with a wrong codec, there are formats on my computer that the iphone cant play inherently either, they must be converted in itunes when i want them to copy.

Why no bluetooth voice calling on the droid?

You just need to turn on bluetooth.  It will do voice calling. 

 

As far as downloading movies any movie service that doesn't require that you use flash should work.  I don't really use movie services so I don't really know who that would be.  Hulu doesn't work yet but when Flash is supported it will.  Not sure when that might be.  Supposedly they are working on it.  I suspect it will come shortly after Google figures out app installation on SD cards.  Supposedly it is in testing at the moment.

You can convert DVDs to a playable format using programs such as Super @.

 

Now what I need is how to get and activate a player for 3GP format videos.

Apparently, according to this article, Flash for Droid will be available early next year.

It is against the law in many states to use a mobile phone and drive.  The voice dial app requires you to look at the phone to confirm which number to dial.  **bleep**. I am returning my HTC Eris Droid.  From everything I've read, It doesn't look like they are going to fix this anytime soon.  So if you want the basic feature of using VOICE DIAL THROUGH YOUR HEADSET, get a different phone NOW.
