We expect our mobile phones these days to function more like the juiced-up minicomputers that they are, as we use them to make calls, respond to e-mails, and browse the Web.
The Motorola Droid is the first smartphone to run the Android 2.0 operating system, and it does so beautifully. The Droid is fast, which makes Web browsing a breeze, and its 3.7-inch touchscreen has an impressive number of pixels (409,920, versus the 153,600-pixel display of the iPhone 3GS). Extra features include a music player with a built-in app for the Amazon MP3 store.
The Droid comes with a slide-out 40-key QWERTY keypad, but the flat, shallow dimensions of the keypad can make typing uncomfortable.
