Review: Motorola Droid
To say that the Droid is an exciting phone for Verizon Wireless is an understatement. The hardware is mostly good, though the QWERTY keyboard stumbles badly. It can be overlooked, however, if you don't mind using the software keyboards that are built into Android.
The essential phone features work well on the Droid, and call quality was excellent. You'll have no problems using the Droid as an actual phone.
It's great that the Droid has such a powerful camera with an improved user interface, but it's also hard to understand why it is so buggy and slow. This is a real disappointment on this device.

The real ace-in-the-hole for the Motorola Droid is that it is the first handset to market running Android 2.0. Android 2.0 offers a wealth of improvements when compared to other Android handsets and they are welcome additions to the platform. The Facebook integration is excellent, as is the better email support. It doesn't hurt, either, to have the free turn-by-turn directions being offered by the new Google Maps application.
Also, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention just how awesome the display is one more time. It makes so many of the Droid's features look that much better.
If you're an Android fan and have been waiting for Verizon Wireless to get on board, the Droid offers a lot of features and is certainly worth considering. Before running out to the store on November 6 when it goes on sale, I'd wait just a week or two to see what else Verizon Wireless has up its sleeves.
