From St. Louis Hackerspace Wiki
The Motorola Droid (a.k.a. Motorola A855, or Motorola Milestone) is a smartphone mobile device created by Motorola, exclusively sold in the United States by Verizon. The Droid is Verizon's flagship device for their line of Droid mobile devices that come with the Android operating system. The other phone Verizon sells with the Android OS is the HTC Droid Eris.
Pros and Cons
- Cheaper than the iPhone.
- Multitasking (up to six apps at once)
- Clear phone calls. (Doesn't sound like a Jack in the Box speaker!)
- GPS (depending on your point of view)
- 5 megapixel camera with a flash!
- Android Operating System
- Big screen. (Larger than the Eris or the iPhone)
- QR code and Bar code reader
- Verizon phone service is expensive. (Worth paying for, but expensive)
- Doesn't have a small look to string on to a lanyard. (This would be very useful.)
- Limited accessories. Thanks to the iFanboyism, it is rare to find any accessory that supports the Droid's miniUSB port.
- High EMR rating. But that's to be expected with any smart phone. (use the speaker phone feature!)
