Proponents believe that the new Droid cell phone can do everything just short of transporting you to the beach for an instant vacation. Opponents say that it is just another earthbound iPhone wannabe. We set out to see who has the real take on just what the Droid is and what it can do.
The Droid has three big companies behind it: Motorola, Google and Verizon. It is a Motorola phone that runs the Google Android operating system on the Verizon cellular network. So a lot of knowledge and a lot of work went into the creation of this phone.
Motorola and its “Hello Moto” theme take center stage on the Droid box, shown in Figure 1. Inside the box, you will find the Droid itself, a USB cable, a detachable wall charger, and a very small booklet that looks like the back of the Droid. The Droid comes with the battery and a 16 GB microSD card pre-installed.
