Motorola and Verizon present the Droid as being a “no-fuss, high-tech, location-aware, voice-recognizing, over-the-air updating, multi-tasking machine.”

Most of the smartphone’s features are now confirmed, including the 3.7 inch, 480 x 854 pixels capacitive touchscreen display, EV-DO Rev A connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, D1 video playback, stereo Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, Flash 10 ready HTML browser, 5MP autofocus camera with dual-LED flash, 16GB of storage space, MicroSD card support, and 1400 mAh battery.

Funny excerpt from the press release: with a display having “more than 400,000 pixels total, DROID has more than twice that of the leading competitor” – this competitor is most probably the iPhone.

But now the question is: is Verizon’s Droid a better choice than AT&T’s iPhone or not? :)
