My new obsession? The Droid!

Okay, it's finally time for me to carry on about my newest obsession, the Google Android based group of phones scheduled to hit Verizon soon™. What was initially thought to be campaign aimed at the Motorola Droid (a.k.a. Tao/Sholes). However, it’s been recently discovered that it’s actually a full “marketing blitz” for a range of Android OS phones on “Big Red”.

Known so far:
Motorola Droid
HTC Droid Eris (re-brand of HTC Hero)

Motorola Calgary (Running Moto BLUR UI)
HTC Passion (Possibly the Dragon & running a Snapdragon 1GHz processor)

But that’s not of concern to me, I’ve got my eyes on the Moto Droid, it’s a wonderful bit of tech & may be enough to make me learn Java, just to be able to write apps for it!


It’s also supposed to come with this sexy dock, that turns it into an alarm clock! Woot!!!


The kicker for all of this is that it’s supposed to NOT be locked down by Verizon like all of their non-smartphone offerings.

So, needless to say, I’m really “geeking out” about this & can’t wait until tomorrow morning, when all will be revealed!
