There’s no question that Motorola has needed a new hit cell phone for the last several years. The company, which is a pioneer in the cell phone market, had a string of high profiles failure that left it lagging behind the competition. Now they’re hoping that their new Droid phones will help get consumers back into buying their phones.
The reviews are coming in concerning the Droid. David Haskin, of ComputerWorld thinks the phone is a great buy at $200.
“My conclusion: My iPhone lust has been sated. The Droid, which costs about $200 after rebates and a two-year contract with Verizon, is superlative. On the whole, it is as carefully designed, useful and fun to use as an iPhone. At last,” he wrote.
He praises the functionality of the Google Android 2.0 and thinks the phone will be a big hit.
The L.A. Times says the Droid is the best phone Verizon is offering.
“Yet, as a phone, the Droid is top-notch. It integrates seamlessly with Google Voice and runs on Verizon, a telecom with a superior reputation for reliable call coverage — unlike AT&T, the exclusive carrier of the iPhone,” they wrote.
The reviews are still coming in. Some are not so satisfied, but overall, you get the sense that people are very impressed with the Motorola phone running the Android 2.0 O/S. This has to be music to the ears of Motorola executives every where.
