Motorola Droid Specs Leaked, High-End Features Abound
A full product specification page for the unannounced Motorola Droid appeared on the Motorola web site briefly yesterday before being taken down. Information gleaned from the spec pages reveal nearly every feature of the phone, which is slated for release by Verizon Wireless in November. The Droid is a sideways slider with 3.7-inch WVGA touch display (480 x 854 pixels) and full QWERTY keyboard. It is based on a 550MHz processor, which is a slight improvement over what current Android handsets are running. It has EVDO Rev. A, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Wi-Fi radios on board, though no mention of support for GSM networks is made. The camera rates 5 megapixels and has dual-LED flash, autofocus, image stabilization and DVD-quality (720 x 480 pixels) video capture at 24 frames per second. The Droid will run Android 2.0 (Eclair) and come with the normal integration with Google services. Verizon has invited media to a Droid-related event scheduled for October 28.
I'm sure with enough searching I could find it but don't feel like wasting my life over a phone
Android is going to fail
The problem is the same problem you see with Windows and Windows Mobile- you end up with a bunch of manufacturers making "the same" product.
There's no "ideal" or "ultimate" product- every one is going to lack something to keep it from being the "perfect" Android phone (for example, the G1 lacks a headphone jack, the MyTouch has an awful onscreen keyboard, the lag of both of them, etc.)
Any attempt to deviate too much (for example, MOTOBLUR) is going to lead to an inconsistent (as in poor) user experience. It's the same thing you see with Windows Mobile, when HTC introduce...
What I have to say ...
Screw the iphone...
2) Name a phone with a better application framework. You can't, because there aren't any.
3) Name a smartphone (Android, BB Storm, WinMo Palm Pre) with a more responsive...
NO comparison to the iphone
Doesnt matter, nothing compares to the overall package of the iphone. As well as the warranty.
Verizon also said the storm was the blackberry killer.
My prediction is, the droid will be popular.
but NOBODY , NOBODY is going to choose the droid over iphone.
Verizon is just mad cause they will never get the iphone now that they have bashed it.
I have an ipod touch. I COULD NOT use it as my phone/primary PDA.
The reason people hang out at a certain place, is because everyone hangs out there.
Same with the iphone. Android is proving very quickly that it outdates the iphone yet people want the iphone because...
Hell, I left my iphone and upgraded to a Hero. A great choice for me. It's al...
Stop compairing every touch phone that comes out to the Iphone, Jesus it gets old.
If I wanted a Iphone, ...
But yeah your right the iPhone is awesome.
I hear they will be releasing a new one next year.... exact same phone bu...
Why are so many of you so bitter at the iPhone? Are you just trying to convince yourself that you don't want it more than your Blackberry? First of all, don't complain that it doesn't have a physical keyboard a...
You never know, they may, especially if it means going from a cheaper phone media plan to a more expensive pda plan? And as well it may not be for the same subsidized price. VZW are fairly loyal, having an in-term upgrade path with s...
i don't suppose that verizon will cut anybody a break on price for this a little...say if they just got their new every two in November last year? and bought into the crappy blackberry storm hype and bought that. now HATE it.
not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything....ahem.
Looks like a nice device. Nice to see Verizon move in the right direction.
Okay.Reply to all
Maybe Motorola is making all their phones for 6 week contracts? Because I have yet to see one that lasts that long.
Whats the Cost?
This Phone Is Off The Chain!
Why point out that there is no support for GSM?
Well Seems Nice Enough
I wouldn't doubt that most quality review sites will have final products in their hands by the 28th/29th and more than a few days to post a full review before customers can buy...
This Cannot Be Right
