The Motorola Droid will launch on Verizon Wireless this week and comes as the Motorola Milestone to Europe. Our review partner tested the first Android 2.0 smartphone and published this review.
Quote from the review: "Each new Android smartphone seems to improve on its predecessors. But Motorola's latest, the Droid from Verizon Wireless, is a veritable quantum leap well beyond recent peers such as the Samsung Moment and the HTC Hero, both from Sprint - and even the Motorola Cliq (available on T-Mobile). Thank three advantages that the Droid possesses over all other previous Android phones: Its gorgeous 400,000-pixel 16x9 3.7-inch LCD touchscreen, the largest available on a cell phone; the handset's status as the first to run the Android 2.0 operating system; and its pedigree as the first Android phone for Verizon, which arguably operates the nation's best 3G network.
However, the Droid's superiority over recent rivals surpasses mere technical comparisons alone. This is one of the most solidly-built smartphones available, featuring a stolidity that lends it a gravitas lacking in all but the most boring BlackBerrys, yet belies the mobile handset's more playful side, which also makes a great impression. To put it simply, the Droid isn't the perfect choice for cell phone owners, but as iPhone alternatives go, it's pretty darn close."
