Verizon Motorola DROID Smartphone

The most-hyped phone since the iPhone officially launched today, and not surprisingly, it's already positioned itself as the anti-iPhone. While we'd like to see the dust from this heavyweight rumble settle before we jump to any conclusions, the features of the Verizon Motorola DROID ($150, with 2-year agreement) do read like a laundry list compiled by Dr. Pavlov himself: Version 2.0 of Google's Android OS, a GPS with Google Maps Navigation (turn-by-turn directions, w00t), 5-megapixel camera, 3.7" touch screen, slide-out keyboard, removable battery, and, oh, yeah, the Verizon network. We can't say we're crazy about its looks (blah) or the name (dorky), and we have a sneaking suspicion the iPhone's got something up its sleeve for Round 2. Call it "we've seen this before."
