Got mine about 2 days ago.

Love the alarm clock feature with the dock station. Hope they make a new version without the keyboard so it can be thinner. The digital keyboard is good enoug for me.

Navigation is really fast thanks to Android 2.0. Typing is kinda hard on the keyboard because of the 4 way navigation pad that is in the way.

Nah, whatever I think the Droid is awesome and can easily take the iPhone.

That company also got hit by Harmony Gold for using designs that apparently were featured in Macross and other platform animes. The original name used by this company was battledroids. Original company name, FASA, now owned by original owner under new company name. That’s right folks, back when FASA was trying to start the battletech line, they first tried to license it under battledroids, but since the phrase ‘Droid is licensed and owned by Lucasfilms, Lucasarts, ILM (Industrial Light and Magic), Skywalker Sound, and THX; They received C&D orders. FASA then changed the name to Battletech.

I am psyched for this release; already have my pre-order in. I personally like having a physical keyboard, and HATE Apple’s control over apps that run on their device. But again, having competition helps all of us, no matter what our preferences are.

CConsultant – they have licensed the rights from LucasFilm for the droid name. You can even see that in the fine print of their TV adverts.

Obama operates by pandering… promising everybody money… trillions to the finance firms, billions to the auto unions and $250 to the seniors.

Jha says that we have to work to produce what consumers want, and work hard to deliver quality products. That’s what creates wealth, not great speeches.

So who do you really think the country needs as President?

Last company that use Droid got hit hard.. I don’t know how they got a court to give them the rights to a slang name but they did..it’s been a few years since i seen a case so GL could have let things slip but Lawyers never forget so I think big M need to rethink the name

I own apple computers, 3 Iphones etc

Who cares if Apple offers iTunes? You are limited in choice. With Android you have multiple music stores to choose. It doesn’t really matter if Motorola doesn’t have a music store like Apple. They don’t need to be. They will make as much margin as Apple on hardware. That’s enough.
