This looks more boring then he Samsung Epix. Users should avoid this phone
My first reaction was that it's kinda ugly, after looking at it a bit longer I realized...well, it's still kinda ugly. Rolling Eyes
Wow so boring that you created a PS account today and posted this...hmmmm Rolling Eyes

False comparisons...

Stock comparisons or not, you're downloading apps and applying patches to give the Droid the functionality it claims to have over the iPhone yet you don't include all the "jailbreak" features that adds to the iPhone??? Regardless of whether or not one "thinks" they should jailbreak is not debatable, the jailbreak "option" is there and takes less time than it does to install an app on either the Droid or the iPhone. So please start comparing apples to apples people!

I've gone through hundreds of lists of features that Droid claims it can do and the iPhone cannot, I've tested a Droid now for 3 days, and guess what... I have see NOTHING the Droid does that the iPhone cannot do (and/or do better)!

I'm definitely NOT saying the Droid is a...

Syncing Music

Anyone know if you can with iTunes or Windows media player? I thought I read somewhere that this was much more difficult than the iPhone but couldn't really figure out what hoops you would have to jump through to do it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Simply put no it will not sync with iTunes; Apple has its own proprietary software. The Palm Pre couldnt sync to the itunes store until apple gave it permission. Apple is very strict on what it will and wont allow; to sync with the iTunes store.

5MP camera images

In all the on-line news, pictures and videos, I've yet to see anyone use the Droid to take a 5MP picture and post it.
No one has done a full review yet. I'm sure they will have them in the full review.
Engadget did a review over the last few days. Most importantly, they've included pics and video samples. ... »

Phone Comparison?

Great review! When will the Storm2 and Droid be available on the phone comparison tool? It's time...

I hope they come out with a model without the slide out keyboard

I text about twice a year and would take a thinner droid with the screen keyboard instead of the slide out keyboard.

My Verizon every-2 comes in March so I'll be ready about the time all the reviews are in.

The CrackBerry Storm 2 looks interesting also.
as thin as the phone is the keyboard will probably stay because it is more of an asset than anything else how many thin phones have a full keyboard. and at what point is thinner too thin. lets be happy motorola is coming back and not ask too much from...

window apps

As a business person the Microsoft package of excel, word, and power point is almost a necessity for a smartphone. I haven't seen anywhere that confirms this package is available for this phone. Does anyone know if this package is compatible with this phone?
Those have been available for Android for a long time now. They are available through the market.

This is what you call a review?????

Come on guys, you tear every other phone to peices and give us honest and quality reviews to read....

Are you on Verizons pay-roll????

Come on, give me a real review!
There's a reason why it's called "First Look" and not "In-Depth". Relax, the latter is coming...give them some time with the phone first.
