The Verizon Droid: "Top Gun"

When reading about the Droid, I am reminded of the movie "Top Gun" and the "need for speed".
The specs for the new Verizon phone, a Texas Instruments processor controlled by the Google Android operating system, suggest that the Droid is an awesome and fast phone!

The speed is not just clock speed. The TI processor is designed to rapidly switch from one task to the other, giving users the ability to be interrupted without having to start a task over. The spacing and size of keyboard keys and predictive text auto filling makes for extra fast text input. The support of html5 means that web pages will jump onto the screen. And, most importantly, Verizon has committed to continue to lead the nation with the most comprehensive network. Indeed, Verizon has already committed to spend billions of dollars rolling out high speed LTE 4G service.

Speed and great network support are not the only advantages offered by the Droid. Like the fighter jets in "Top Gun", the Droid is loaded with advanced features; such things as street view maps, speech recognition, turn by turn directions, 5M camera with 4x zoom, noise reduction, calendar sync, contact sync, pre-loaded Facebook software, pre-loaded Amazon mp3 software and support for Google Talk, YouTube, IM, SMS and MMS.

Top speed, top quality, top support and top features make an awesome combination. The official Droid announcement is scheduled for Wednesday, October 28, 2009. Deliveries should begin in early November.
