Verdict

The DROID is truly a coup for Motorola, a manufacturer thought to be well past its prime. Only sales figures will determine how the DROID will stack up against its self-professed competition, Apple's iPhone, but Verizon has found itself a fantastic flagship device to carry its smartphone line through the holiday season. And UK users have this all to look forward to when the Milestone device hits these shores.
