    Motorola Droid: Hands-on impressions and thoughts


    by TechVi

    114 views We haven’t had a chance to get our grubby mits on the Motorola Droid, but luckily we talk to Nilay Patel from Engadget and Gary Krakow from The Faster about the phone. Shockingly, they’re pretty glowingly happy about the device, saying the software is snappy, the processor is fast, and the GPS support, which has been getting some buzz, is excellent. The bad side? The keyboard isn’t as stellar as some would have expected, but Nilay says he’s barely touched keyboard since he’s using the on-screen keyboard so frequently. Nilay stopped short of recommending the phone over the iPhone, but did say it’s a great device for Verizon customers. We’re excited to spend some time with the Droid ourselves, but for now, it sounds like Moto is on the right track. Distributed by Tubemogul.
