About Droid

On 2009.11.06, in Technology, by Greg

I have upgraded to Motorola Droid from what is now an antique. I’ve only had it for a few hours. I was surprised at how heavy it is. I was also surprised at how small the keys are on the slide out keyboard. I decided to add the desktop docking station and so far I’m glad I did. It’s convenient. Syncing with Google was a total no-brainer. I’ve been receiving notifications of new emails and calendar events.

Nice feature: instant maps from Google for your contacts that include addresses. Very nice indeed.

You may want to compare features with the Apple iPhone. See Mashable article for comparison chart.

I have been accidentally hitting functions and activating searches more often than I thought. Since I carry the Droid in my pocket, the keyboard slides out slightly sometimes and that activates the “droid groan,” a robot-sounding “droid.”

I was not reimbursed for this review. I’ll add comments as I begin adding features.
