BGR Moto Droid Hands on!

Quote:
It’s running Android 2.0. Duh.
It’s thin. Just slightly thicker than an iPhone 3GS and the thinnest QWERTY-slider we’ve ever seen.
It is the fastest Android device we’ve ever used. (It’s running a TI OMAP3430 processor)
The feel of the device is very reminiscent of the OQO 02 model computer. Just smaller. It’s metal with a non-spring-assisted slide, very sturdy, and half soft-touch plastic.
Awesome capacitive display. Plus it’s huge. Easily the best screen we’ve ever seen on an Android handset, and an amazing screen overall.
The QWERTY keyboard is actually pretty usable and has a soft-touch rubberized finish. We’ve been told the keyboard design isn’t final on this unit, thus the two no-shows.
Have we mentioned this phone flies? It’s the Android device to beat, and easily the most impressive. From what we’ve been told, Google had a direct hand in the Motorola Droid. Something to the point of almost dictating every move Motorola made when designing and making the phone. Interesting, huh?
There’s a desktop cradle/charger that will ship with the Motorola Droid that we’ve been playing around with. It turns your Droid into a “multimedia station” and displays local weather, the time, etc.
No one wants to listen, but it makes the CLIQ looks like a child’s toy (partly because it is, and partly because the Droid, even in its non-final form, is the most impressive phone we’ve used since the iPhone. It’s positively amazing).

I need this in my life. The keyboard design isn't finalized so don't comment on how horrible it looks.

There's a lot of positive stuff in this, from a preliminary view. Now if only Sprint could get a phone similar to this or HTC could deliver an Android handset WITH a QWERTY keyboard (Have any of you realized only the G1 has a QWERTY keyboard and there hasn't been any other phone's by HTC w/ Android that has one that's lame)

Also see how he says it's SLIGHTY thicker than the iPhone, that just goes to show you that you don't need a brick to have a qwerty keyboard and a large screen. And look no P.O.S. MSM 7xxx processor either!

Aesthetics aside ... it appears that the market is getting ready to explode. Competition is good!

Re: BGR Moto Droid Hands on!

I hope the keyboard design isn't final, cause it looks terrible. Although, I did say that same thing about the Touch pro...until I first used it. So it might not be all bad, just looks that way!

"Droid, even in its non-final form, is the most impressive phone weve used since the iPhone. Its positively amazing)."

Just that statement alone makes me want the phone even more. You never hear statements like that in phone reviews anymore.

Re: BGR Moto Droid Hands on!

Yeah, a super thin slider sounds great. I also like that google was heavily involved in the design and development of this phone. That means it will integrate really well with Android 2.0.
