It has been quite a while since Motorola released an impressive mobile device last. For a company that produced the stunning A008 “Accompli” as far back as 2002, Motorola seems to have been falling deeper and deeper into mediocrity for a while.
But the Droid is looking to change that. It is the first Motorola product in years that has impressed me. I am difficult to impress.
The Droid is an Android-based device (the first to run Android 2.0), sports a full QWERTY keyboard, HSDPA/HSUPA, an ARM Cortex A8 550 MHz processor, and has a 5 megapixel shooter on board.
This U.S. version of this device is known as the Droid, while the Europe version goes by the name Milestone. Hopefully, the Droid will indeed be a Milestone in the fortunes of Motorola and help the struggling giant get back on its feet. At least in the smartphone business.
Do not forget to give us a heads-up if you run into this beast in the market here in Nigeria.
