Google's Droid : A Potential Competitor of iPhone

Apple’s iPhone has monopolized the smart-phone market since the past couple of years. The existing scenario could soon be reversed with the introduction of the new Droid. The 3.7-inch touch screen Droid consists of two principal parts. The upper part is the large glass display, and the lower portion is a slightly longer keyboard.

Motorola’s new-age design is bit thicker than the iPhone 3GS making it more impressive. Coupled with Google’s open-source software, it sports a full keyboard, a bigger screen than the iPhone and a flash-based camera.

The Droid’s built-in keyboard with click keys, provide its users with an easy experience. Its buttons are relatively large so you wont be hitting the delete button every now and then.

The Droid comes with a 600 MHz Arm Cortex A8 CPU 600MHz, with 256MB of RAM. This much of RAM is enough to browse the Internet, take a call on the speaker phone, while chatting it up on G-chat.

Motorola has decked up the Droid with a 5 megapixel camera with the LED flash. The camera features the Android software that controls auto focus, flash settings, white balance and effects. This is considered to be the sweetest phone cameras able to handle shooting in bright sunlight, at night and even on a rainy day.

Also it is introduced in the market with 25,000; free and paid applications available, ranging from Facebook and Twitter to hundred of games.

Google has launched an excellent and competitive smart-phone with many of the features that a modern user would think of. Moreover, for Verizon customers, there isn't a more action packed device on the network.

Droid makes for a powerful tool, along-with Google’s smooth software, Verizon's killer network, and Motorola’s new-aged design.
