Motorola DROID review
Motorola’s second Android handset is heading our way. We review the Motorola DROID to find out what users can expect from the Milestone when it hits the UK.
The DROID also runs on a super speedy processor in the form of the 550MHz ARM Cortex A8.
A new OS and navigation
Motorola's DROID is the first Google Android-based device of any kind to be released with the new Android 2.0 operating system. Everything from the email application, to the contacts interface, to the video player and even gaming capabilities seem improved compared to earlier builds of the Android OS.
We love the fact that this is the first device to include free, built-in, turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation courtesy of Google Maps Navigation. No longer will you have to bring a separate GPS unit with you in the car, or pay more 100 for a comparable mobile navigation application. It should certainly come in handy for getting users to meetings on time if they have no idea where they're going.
Google's app does a good job of getting us where we need to go, but it is not without its faults. If you should happen to veer off of Google's pre-set course, the app will continuously attempt to get you back on what it considers to be the right path.
As any regular GPS navigation user will tell you, a device's ability to re-route quickly and efficiently is absolutely paramount. Fortunately, this is an issue that can be worked out with a software update.
