    Motorola Droid Is Gadget Of The Year

    Advertisement



    Via informationweek.com:
    Time Magazine has named its top ten gadgets of the year. To what is probably a bitter disappointment for Apple, Motorola's Droid took the top spot. Does the Droid deserve such honors? Who was left out?

    Excerpt from the authors of the comparison:
    "The Droid is a hefty beast, a metal behemoth without the gloss and finish of the iPhone, but you don't miss it. The Droid's touchscreen is phenomenally sharp and vivid, it has an actual physical (not great, but good enough) keyboard, and best of all, the Droid is on Verizon's best-of-breed 3G network. It's Android's first credible challenge to the iPhone."

    Quotes to live by:
    • Inspiration is like a lost sock. When your searching you can never find it, and when it appears, you least expect it.
    • There are no exceptions to the rule that everybody likes to be an exception to the rule.
    • Ideas are the factors that lift civilization. They create revolutions. There is more dynamite in an idea than in many bombs.
    • Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.

    Good thing they didn't ask me. It was OK but just not my cup-o-tea. Sold it within 2 weeks. I know the ones who like it, love it but I just couldn't get into it. Lots of cool apps...Well that was the best part.

    I love it and don't think it's ugly! It is simple in looks, but nothing particularly ugly. Of course these lists are just hype, and the Droid is not for everyone. But it is MY top gadget of the year.

    I have to agree. I don't think it's ugly at all. The physical keyboard leaves something to be desired, but the device itself is pretty nice. It is a big on the big side for me, but I don't think it's "fugly."

    I think the real winner behind all this is Google/Android.

    Oh yes we are. So should anyone who likes Android. These lists, like them or not, matter in regards to exposure. And coming in 1st is huge! Did you hear? The Moto Milestone(Droid's twin) sold out in record time in the U.K. right off the heels of the Time top ten list. Lets say it like it is... No device is hotter right now.

    I read about the Motorola Milestone selling out on eXpansys' website in three hours and it almost mentioned:
    "Within 3 hours of the product being listed as 'in stock' on the eXpansys site it sold out. This makes the Motorola Milestone the fastest selling gadget in the website's 11 year history, even more successful than the iPhone"

    That's really impressive.

    I really have to call bull$#17 on that one.

    I had the myTouch, and while I liked many things,

    #1.) It's not yet there to be rated phone / system of the year (although it has massive amounts of potential)

    #2.) The Moto Droid is just getting the award because Verizon backed it up with $1,000,000 worth of commercials (which roughly is the same cost as giving a LOT of people free phones OR dropping $100 of the cost of the phone -- you be the judge of them making a good decision).
