How often do you hear a phone from Verizon getting play on local media? The Droid is definitely getting that here in Columbus, Ohio. WBNS 10 TV is running a story about it on their site. I find it a little interesting that they say the Droid has thousands of applications, while ignoring the fact that it is actually running Android, and Android has been out for about a year now. They don’t call it Android OS either; they say it runs Google’s software.
Also worth noting is that Vincent at Slashgear has posted a full review on the Droid.
All in all, the Verizon DROID by Motorola sets the bar for all new Android devices and is arguably the best Android device to date. The natural comparison is always going to be the iPhone 3GS, and while the DROID lacks the Apple handset’s finesse and polish, it’s only a few steps behind. If you’re not entirely content with your iPhone 3GS and AT&T’s service, we’d suggest giving the DROID a try; meanwhile, if you’re looking to dump your current handset or carrier, the DROID should definitely be on your shortlist.

Do you think the Droid will be good enough to beat the iPhone? I think it will be really close, but that all depends on Verizon. I think Motorola is officially back thanks to both the Cliq and the Droid, but we’ll have to see how it does in the coming weeks. Friday is only a couple days away! Are you getting a Droid?
