Motorola DROID: A Sleek and Powerful Android Phone

- - No comments
After Motorola Dext (CLIQ), one of the leading handset makers will release another Android-powered phone that is appropriately called the DROID. It is poised to become the most advanced Android device on the market with its high-end specifications and extra features.

The Motorola DROID has a beautiful 3.7 inch multi-touch display (854x480 resolution) which is rather huge when compared to other smartphones, and it has a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard. It runs on Android OS version 2.0 (Eclair) and its processor is similar to that of Palm Pre, which is a Texas Instruments OMAP 3430 with a clock speed of 550MHz. It has a separate PowerVR GPU, 256MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM.

Other Important Tech Specs:
Storage: 512MB onboard flash memory (expandable through MicroSDHC slot);
Connectivity: Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Dual band CDMA2000/EV-DO Rev. A 800 1900 MHz;
Camera: 5.0 megapixel with auto focus and flash;
Power: 1400 mAh Internal rechargeable removable lithium-ion polymer battery;
Other features: digital magnetometer, accelerometer, and proximity sensors;

The Motorola DROID is the first Android 2.0 device, and like other excellent competing smartphones it is being advertised as an iPhone-killer. With its sleek look and powerful features, I think it could become as successful as the RAZR and possibly surpass iPhone’s popularity. But it will depend on whether or not its OS can really deliver the goods.
