Motorola Droid Gets A Hands-On Treatment

Posted Oct 19, 2009

Boy Genius Report gave the hands-on treatment on the Motorola Droid. Based on the screenshots I’ve seen, it looks very similar to an iPhone and the sliding QWERTY keyboard reminds me of a Sidekick. Below are some of the specs:
– Android 2.0 operating system (as predicted)
– Almost as thin as an iPhone 3G S and very thin QWERTY sliding keyboard
– Capacitive display
– The phone is made out of metal and rubber. The keyboard has a soft-touch rubberized finish.
– Each phone will have a desktop charger that comes with it. The charger turns the phone into a Multimedia Station by displaying the local weather and time.
