The Attack of the Droids and Androids

Yesterday (Friday) I went by a local Verizon store to check out the Storm 2 and the Moto Droid.  More on the Storm 2 elsewhere.  The Droid was much less impressive in person than on paper.  I went predisposed to like it but didn’t.  It felt heavy and clunky, the tactice experience was much inferior to the iPod and the BlackBerries.  The keyboard was cheesy and the joystick seemed useless; I like the keyboard on my Tour and the keyboard on the Droid felt much inferior.

I was surprised the store looked very empty.  And only a couple of people were looking at the Droids.  It would be very interesting if the Droid was not a big success, given the big push from Verizon and Goodle.

A recap of the news the week the Verizon Droid launched.
