Droid phone reviews are important, as the Droid phone was released yesterday. Reviews are pouring in for the Droid phone, which is made by Motorola and is Verizonâ€™s smartphone based on Google Android operating system. Â As consumers are fickle, is Motorolaâ€™s Â Droid phone nothing more than the sexy phone-du-jour, only to be cast aside in a couple of months, or will the Droid become a timeless classic, like Appleâ€™s iPhone?
As an Apple lover and an AT&T customer, I never thought anything would come close to the iPhone.Â However, as many of my family members have increasingly got on to Verizonâ€™s network, I noticed that my cousin â€“ the daughter of a Verizon salesman, had the Droid phone the day it was released.
If I had to say one word in my review of Verizonâ€™s new phone that uses the Google Android operating system, I would simply say â€“ Amazing.Â Â The technology present in this phone is enough for me to at least consider switching to Verizon â€˜s services.
The thing that makes the Droid better than the iPhone in my eyes is that it is capable of supporting corporate email.Â While the Apple has the same capabilities, it was very hard for my companyâ€™s IT department to get Appleâ€™s features running for my bossesâ€™ iPhone.
Those that wonder about applications and watching YouTube videos will be pleased to know that Verizonâ€™s Google phone, the Droid, has over 12,000 applications available and is fully integrated with most Google technology, including Gmail.Â You can run more than one application at a time (not possible on the iPhone) and the Droid also features a physical keyboard (also not available on the iPhone).
All in all, those in the market for a new phone can purchase the Droid for $199.99 with a 2 year contract. I think itâ€™s one of Verizonâ€™s best phones available, as my salesman uncle painstakingly told me about all the high-end phones in hopes of converting me to a Verizon user with this sophisticated phone. Â Itâ€™s a phone worth getting excited about, and one that will be on many peopleâ€™s Christmas list. While the iPhone was on my list, I may just have to switch providers to get the Motorola Droid.
