Meet the Droid

Verizon may finally have a phone that can compete
feature-wise with the iPhone. The Droid made its official debut today following
weeks of Internet buzz. Made by Motorola and running Google’s Android software,
the system is an amalgamation of many smartphone trends.Droid

The Droid will go on sale Friday, Nov. 6 for $200. It comes
with a touchscreen, physical keyboard, the ability to simultaneously run
several applications and a 5MP camera- with flash.

Beyond the usual social network synching, there’s also a
free GPS program on Droid that offers turn-by-turn directions and live traffic
updates. That’s a big advantage over the expensive GPS apps on other
systems.  Unfortunately for Verizon, it won’t
be exclusive to Droid for long – and may eventually appear on the iPhone.

Best Buy is already taking orders for the phone (allowing
you to skip the rebate process at Verizon). And Engadget has a quick
first-impressions piece up about the system after a few hands-on hours with it.
