Countdown to Droid: Day #2

I'm going to go through all the phones available right now on Verizon. As I mentioned yesterday there's the Droid Eris by HTC, Motorola Droid & Devour, Droid Incredible by HTC, and the LG Ally. They all run some version of Android some upgradeable now, some in the future and some who knows.

So lets talk about the Motorola Droid. verizons first powerhouse Android phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. 
Lets talk specifics: 
3.7" Touch Screen 480x854 WVGA display, 
5 Megapixel camera with  dual LED Flash
Upgradeable to Android 2.1 (Eclair)
OMAP3430 — 550MHz processor
Pre–installed 16GB microSD

Not a bad looking phone Specs-wise. it seemed a little bulky to me, I'm not big on the slide out QWERTY keyboards as it is which just seemed to add to the bulkiness of it. If yopu're heavy on the texting maybe that is key to your phone needs but not mine. I don't have too much of a problem with the virtual keyboards and they only seem to get better. So this Phone is probably not for me

Next up is the Motorola Devour, another slide out QWERTY keyboard phone
3.1" Touch Screen HVGA, 320 x 480
3.0 Megapixel camera
Android 1.6 (Donut) OS with MOTOBLUR™
Qualcomm MSM7627 processor with dedicated HW Acceleration
8GB microSD card pre–installed on–device

This is clearly a lower end Android phone. meant for texting, twitter, facebook, and what not with the MotoBlur. Alot of people hate MotoBlur and I can understand why but at the same token it serves a need for some people. Definitely a backstep from the Droid and probably from the Droid Eris too. Once again with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. As you might have guessed this is also not the phone for me.

I think thats going to be it for today. Please feel free to leave any questions or comments or concerns you might have about my blog or anything Android in general. Maybe you're to be purchasing a new phone yourself and are wondering if Android is for you (it is!). Whatever it is don't hesitate to ask. Thanks again
