When considering the Motorola Droid, you can’t graph it out on a checklist. You can’t just consider it as a set of specifications. This model has synergy — all its pieces work together to make a great smartphone.
Verizon’s advertising campaign for this device compares it to the Apple iPhone, and the Droid can stand up to this competition. It has a much better screen and offers some things the iPhone doesn’t, like a physical keyboard. It’s more customizable, and Verizon’s mobile broadband network is available in far more areas.
The iPhone and Droid are even in one area: price. Both sell for $200 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate.
All in all, the Droid is a truly outstanding smartphone, certainly the best one released this fall.
