    So I just saw this commercial grilling Apple on stuff the iPhone (or iPod?) doesn't have. I looked at the website and saw it's just another Verizon phone, but it looks pretty cool. Check it out at droiddoes.com

    I don't see where they're going with it, most end users wont really care about some of that stuff (open development for example). This being proved with the mass success of the iPhone, even without these features. I have to say the Droid does look pretty awesome though

    I think most users do care about the things listed there, that's why people jailbreak; to customize, run simultaneous apps, open development. Basically Apple doesn't allow any 3rd party apps, the apps HAVE to be accepted into the App store, and I'm assuming "Droid does".

    They are using this Droid (Verizons series of Android phones) as the Ultimate 'geek' phone.

    They will go after the end user with others, like the Droid Eris, and such.

    i have Verizon, and id really like to have a jailbroken iPod touch and just a regular old phone actually. Nothing can beat an iPhone, all phones are just different.

    Why can't anything beat the iPhone? Without having used the phone, it looks like it already does. As with all phones, there could be improvements. The keyboard could be a little better and there are probably many other things that will be improved in the coming years. They did an amazing job keeping the Droid as thin as it is. About the same thickness as an iPhone but with a slide out keyboard.

    Yeah, as far as a smartphone goes, this beats the iPhone (which isn't really a full fledged smartphone...)

    DROID DOES NOT BEAT THE iPhone, NOT BY A LONG SHOT (feel free to flame, but I'm going to be wise this time and ignore anyone that thinks otherwise)
