iPhone may add a key board to it phone some day in order to compete with DROID.

Good for the droid. Half the credit should go to verizon since that is the reason they have sold so many. The real test will be how long the droid lasts. The iphone is in its third year and still on the list and still selling very well even with ATT bad network.

Droid seems to be doing pretty well despite all the iphone fannys grasping at straws to prove otherwise. The real key has hawk62 says is how long that can be sustained, especially as Android skyrockets to the top of the marketshare over the next 12-18 months. What may happen, which I hope will NOT happen, is that Android becomes fragmented with difference manufacturers, etc and go the way of Windows Mobile. I hope the Google/VZW partnership is really a strategic one.

thats just dumb - you're telling me that iphone invented the phone? or touchscreen? or are you saying that if apple never made the iphone 3gs, nevermind the other two iphones before that, then motorola wouldnt have made a flagship phone with the most up and coming operating system on the nations largest carrier? get a grip...

Why would a phone that is essentially the same phone from last year be considered for Gadget of the Year this year? The Droid was a good pick because it actually is the phone that 'introduces' the masses to Android in the States. I know htc came out w/ the G1 as the first Android device, but that was on Tmo, compare the number of customers Tmo has to the number of customers using Vzw... it's night and day. Plus Vzw has its aggressive marketing for the device that's helping get the name out. Though, I do think if the HD2 was hanging out in the States w/ 3G, that would have been the device of the year, hands down....

no. the droid, im happy to say, is a much superior phone. i very much agree with vzwman that apple just burns holes in your pockets. apple filled their app store with naked girls and fart sounds. android has great apps that are not only useful to the phone but fun. the iphone really doesnt have much besides a nice processor and "apps" as you would call them.

What are you talking about? You know how many iPhone apps are free? I have also used the Droid and trust me, they have very few free apps now and their apps are actually pretty pricey. Know your facts before you speak, because you'll be paying for apps just as much as iPhone users.

Actually your very incorrect when you say there are few free apps. Your obviously not accessing the free apps correctly. It took me near three days, not straight of course, to thumb through all of the free apps. And they are adding more and more free apps everyday. So you should get your facts straight before deciding to bash the app store for android!
