Fack yo Iphone - October 28, 2009, 12:08 PM



Droid coming out for Verizon November 6th, $200 after mail-in rebate. Supposedly the iphone killer...google integration...open-source, and a keyboard!

"We knew good and well this thing was coming sometime in November, and now Verizon Wireless has made it official: the Motorola DROID will hit Big Red on November 6th for $199 on contract (after a $100 mail-in rebate). Naturally, the DROID itself is just the first of what could be many Android-laced phones coming to the carrier, and Verizon Wireless CMO John Stratton even stated that the phone "is wide open" -- pretty big words from a company like VZW. Android 2.0 will be front and center, along with Visual Voicemail, a 3.7-inch display (854 x 480 resolution), 5 megapixel camera (with dual-LED flash), a bundled 16GB memory card and a beta version of Google Maps Navigation(!). For those wondering, yeah -- the DROID is the first phone to offer that, which transforms Google Maps into a turn-by-turn routing system that'll have your dedicated TomTom / Garmin trembling in fear. There's also a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3G, WiFi, voice-activated search and over-the-air Amazon MP3 downloads."

Because open source stuff works sooo much better

Whatever, I hate to be an iPhone snob, especially since I'm anti-Apple, but good luck making an "iPhone killer". Not saying it's impossible, just that it's no small feat.

every open software i ever used worked better than the proprietary..... GIMP for photos... Firefox.... Cdburner XP for burning....

Iphone killer is term thats been thrown around liberally and never lived up to its word...however this looks like the first viable real deal!

I heart my Palm Pre. But yes the droid has me drooling a bit.

I actually have the option to go back to vzw for the droid free when it comes out, I will take a look then.


I just really really like portrait sliders(pre), a lot more than landscape ones(droid).


The Pre is coming to vzw soon as well.

I'm referring to the two-bit programs people come up with. Anything with a bankroll and backing like FFX will succeed. It's the other shit that will never work.

I am going to get this phone, I just hope it lives up to the hype.

Any techies able to breakdown all the differences vs. the iphone?

You live more in five minutes on a bike like this going flat out than some people live in a lifetime.
