Motorola steps up to the plate with Motorola Droid, the first phone to run on Google’s new Android 2.0 operating systems.
There are tons of technical details which has been nicely compiled here. For the rest of us, videos are simply better to see what the buzz is all about.
Pretty cool, huh? So I might be wrong after all for saying that Android phones are incompetent when it comes to competing with Apple’s iPhone here. That had seem to be the case before Motorola Droid was announced. In fact, the Droid could be just what Motorola needs to save its mobile market share and bring more choices for consumers when it comes to smartphones.
However, there’s still one thing that will bother most people who have used iPhones before. There’s still no multitouch support in Motorola Android! You know, those actions where you zoom in and out of a photo or webpage using your fingers (known as multitouch) is still not yet implemented into Motorola Droid. I’m wondering if that’s the limit of the hardware itself or if that’s a limitation of the operating system (Google’s Android 2.0).
And guess what? There was even a video campaign mentioning implicitly what iPhone (iDont) can’t do but Droid does.
