The Motorola DROID: Verizon’s iPhone Cure

Motorola is releasing their antidote to the iPhone sickness with the DROID. The Droid is an Android phone that will be front and center on Verizon on November 6th for $199 (with a contract). (Funny that Verizon’s CEO stated that Apple’s decision to let the iPhone run on Verizon was all theirs, especially considering Verizon was the first to REJECT the iPhone.)


Android 2.0 will be front and center, along with Visual Voicemail, a 3.7-inch display (854 x 480 resolution), 5 megapixel camera (with dual-LED flash), a bundled 16GB memory card and a beta version of Google Maps Navigation. There’s also a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3G, WiFi, voice-activated search and over-the-air Amazon MP3 downloads.
