iPhone Killer!

Droid vs iPhone

 

Verizon unveiled their Droid phone, which is based on Google’s open source Android operating system.   Verizon advertising Droid as “the phone that does everything that iPhone doesn’t do right”, check out this TV Ad.  Also, take a look at this comprehensive review which compares major features of Droid with iPhone. 

As you will see, Droid has some great features like:
1) pull-out key board, for those who likes physical key boards
2) Free Turn by Turn navigation application
3) True multi-tasking

My take on it, this is a great first attempt to take over iPhone, but Droid is missing the cool factor.  I am sure they will catch-up on App store, etc., but unless they can make it cool, iPhone will still rule.  Only time will tell who wins, but for now I’m keeping my iPhone.

    I plan to follow this battle. Droid seems to be a strong contender.

    Part of the blame goes to AT&T as well. AT&T has a strong interest of not letting any app that can take bite out their revenue (Google voice is a perfect example).

    According to Bloomberg.com, around 100,000 droid phones were sold during the opening week. Obviously not even close to the Apple iPhone 3GS’s first week sale of 1 million units, but it’s a good start.
