New Droid Phone From Verizon

Verizon Announces New Android 2.0 Phone

Has the iPhone met its match? A new Android phone called Droid is on the way. It's a joint venture from Verizon, Motorola, and Google, and may be available by the end of the month. The phone, which is set to compete with the iPhone, will feature a pull-out keyboard and be available on the Verizon network. The announcement comes with an ad campaign calling out several iPhone's weaknesses — "iDon't take night shots. iDon't have a real keyboard. iDon't have interchangeable batteries."

The phone will run Android 2.0, and according to the Verizon site, features "video, directions, a 5-megapixel camera, and over 10,000 apps". There's no official release date for the Droid yet, but you can register to be notified when it's ready. Will the Droid — specifically targeted to capitalize on the iPhone's weaknesses — finally give Apple a run for its money? If any phone was going to, this could be the one.

Tell me what your phone does and I may pay attention to you. If you are only attacking some other product I would expect people to attack the Droid when it is finally released.

the reason i haven't gotten an iphone is because i like my verizon service and don't want to switch to at&t, so i could definitely see myself getting one of these if they're not ridiculously expensive.

Haha, I like the Lucasfilm trademark on DROID. I'm quite interested to see how the phone does! I have an iPhone 3G and I love it, although I do wish they had a few extra features mentioned in the ad. (Night photos, customization, batteries.)
