adeelarshad82 writes: Motorola Droid (Images and video) made its debut today after a relatively brief, if attention grabbing, ad campaign that targeted the iPhone's perceived shortcomings. The handset, which runs the recently announced Android 2.0 software, will be available starting Nov. 6 exclusively on the Verizon Wireless network. It will cost $199 with a two-year contract, after a $100 mail-in rebate. As an earlier product leak suggested, the 2.4 in.by 4.6 in. by.5-in. phone's specs feature a 5-megapixel camera, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and built-in GPS with those snazzy new turn-by-turn directions from Google. The Droid has a TI OMAP 3430 processor which can run at up to 600-MHz, Motorola chief executive Sanjay Jha said in a press conference on Tuesday. The processor changes speed based on the demands of running programs. The OMAP 3430 is based on ARM's Cortex-A8 architecture, which is newer and faster than the ARM11 used in previous Android phones.
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact
mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows.
