Real-World Verizon Droid Review

Thumbs Up For The Motorola Verizon Droid
Thumbs Up For The Motorola Verizon Droid

Mobile professionals are not the only ones who have discovered the usefulness of the smartphone. More and more public leaders are busting out Blackberrys and iPhones when they are out and about. At my recent talk at the National League of Cities conference, there were throngs of mayors and other elected officials staying connected at the back of every room.

After about a year of getting the wheels turning slowly with their new operating system for mobile telephones, it looks like Google’s Android system is about to hit it big, big time. More phones than you can shake a stick at are set to drop over the next few weeks and months. I’ve been using the new flagship, the Motorola Droid on Verizon, since the day it emerged. I really put it through its paces.

Overall, Google, Verizon, and Motorola have hit it out of the park with this phone. My only downchecks are the D-pad (I want a little trackball) and battery life (better than the G1, but still could be improved).

Here’s my video review:

Do you have a Droid? How do you like it? Are you thinking of getting one?

  1. Maybe I’m exceptionally dim, but I wanted to share your review via email with Alex, and couldn’t figure out how to do it. I ended up copying and pasting the URL, but isn’t there a “share via email” button on here somewhere?
