DROID by Motorola

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.

I can't wait to get my hands on a "Google" handset. Also, being a passionate disliker of anything "Mac", it will be good to support a hanset that may finally show up the IPhone for what it really is - well marketed hype.

People complain that Google have too much power. They may have a point, but the reality is that they do bring us really good tools, applications and utilities, and don't charge for them (e.g. Analytics and Gmail) so let's not complain!

iPhone beater? Woah. Interesting phone.

"And some of my students thought that Motorola only made 2 way radios."

Haha. That's really funny!

My very first mobile handset was a Motorola 7200, when cellphones were first launched in South Africa in 1994.

Round about 2000 I had a Motorola V. clamshell phone, but since then the styling of their handsets have been in the doldrums.

Finally they are rleasing products that appeal to me again, and I would love to get my hands on a Droid. Sadly here in South Africa they're not available.

Yeah, a motorolla that looks decent and formal. But even if this is a new model or interface with good specifications and features, I still prefer the one that I use, the iPhone and my Nokia. Simply the best for me.

The DROID by Motorola and iPhone by Apple almost have the same features but they are different when it comes to quality and technology.
