Is Verizon's Droid an iPhone Killer?

So, is Verizon's new Droid phone -- supported by Google's new Android 2.0 mobile operating system -- a true iPhone slayer? The Technologizer's Harry McCracken says he's too smart to assume that specs alone are not enough to take down Apple's mobile juggernaut, "but the Droid does pack better specs than the iPhone 3GS in many areas -- including its screen, which has well over twice as many pixels ... and it's on a network that doesn't provoke much in the way of squawking from its customers." He's even gone to the trouble of laying out each phone's long list of specs side by side. We would recommend that Verizon use the so-called "T-Grid" in any of its ad campaigns, but it's still interesting to see how the rival gadgets match up.

    Mac people are generally insane and feel they're on a mission from God. You still hear that tired, old "but graphics are better on a Mac" BS when the argument surfaces. This is not about features, price or network - it's a cult, plain and simple. It doesn't matter what the Droid does, there are still those who will insist that their Mac product is superior when the real facts are that they're simply afraid to use a real computer (or phone, for that matter). The Droid could have twice as many features and cost half as much and those iMoonies would still be singing the praises of a "free app" that calculates how much diswashing detergent to put in based on a per plate count. The Droid will rule.
