Welcome to the Android world. In order for members to suggest what to get is you have to give more info on what phone you want or using at the moment.

There are thousands of apps in the android market and lots of ROMs to choose from.

i liked using Engadget, Pulse, IMDB, XDA, Taptu, and a bunch of other stuff most people wouldn't be interested in. i don't have my phone right now so i can't see my Play download history. nobody can tell you what ROM to use. you just have to read and pick one. i mostly just like to look at the pictures. ;p

I have just preordered the htc one x for AT&T and I was wondering what are the best and maybe some of your favorite apps.

Cool. I like MyBackup Pro and Root Explorer from the market. They are not free but I think they are worth it.

For ROMs I think you have to venture to the One XL forum to find out what they are cooking there.

Angry birds in space :-p

And I definitely definitely definitely recommend swiftkey, the best keyboard out there (some prefer swype). In fact if you're not happy with the HTC keyboard just have a look around, you can even get the stock android keyboards.

Tegra zone shows you the latest games designed specifically for Tegra phones.

Chrome browser (however it lacks the text reformatting that htc provides on the stock browser)

Enjoy

I just had a look at the One XL forum and it's like a desert. I hope the devs start cooking something up.

The most important one I believe is if you ever root your device make sure you read the instructions and it should work out fine. ANd always backup your stuff.

Hmmm.. about android it's pretty basic though. Maybe watch some youtube clips to see how it goes.
