Finally. FINALLY!! Verizon will soon carry the Motorola Droid. The date is official: November 6th. For three years I’ve bided my time, put up with Windows Mobile, and waited for a worthy smartphone from Big Red.
At last, they are delivering the goods. And, what a beast it is!
The big selling points for me include:
- Gmail, Google search/calendar/maps integration
- recently announced Google Maps Navigation!
- solid web browser
- keeping Verizon’s excellent cell reception
I look forward to having a trusty Droid.
Edit: I forgot to mention the main reason I have been waiting for an Android phone is the mere fact that it is an open platform, unlike Apple’s walled garden.
