Really looking forward to trying out the Droid when it launches in the UK on the 7th of this month. Running on the Android 2.0 OS, the phone is said to be the true iPhone beater (I know a lot of die hard iPhone fans will disagree) with more than 800,00 units sold in the US since it was launched there on the 6th of November.
The thin full-QWERTY slider phone has a 3.7” 400,000 pixels display and comes with 5.0 megapixel, autoFocus, dual LED Flash and image stablisation camera with DVD quality video recorder and 16GB microSD memory card expandable upto 32GB. best of all, it comes preloaded with all the best Google Mobile Services including Gmail, Googlemaps, calendar, YouTube, etc. You can also access thousands of applications and widgets from Android Market. A really innovative feature is the voice-activated search.
As for battery life, you don't need to be worried. The phone comes with 385 mins/6.4 hours talk and 270 hours/11.25 days standby time.
The phone will be available via Expansys (unlocked sim free) for £449.99 and with service provider T-Mobile Combi for a £35 a month contract.
And some of my students thought that Motorola only made 2 way radios.
