iDon't Believe We're There Yet

The Motorola StarTAC was the first mobile phone that I purchased and handsets have evolved considerably since then. Most recognised for the RAZR, Motorola have now launched the DROID and according to sources perhaps created its most attractive and intriguing piece of technology yet.

Whenever a new smart phone is launched, comparisons with the iPhone are inevitable, of course. There have been many handsets dubbed "iPhone killers" but the tag doesn't convince anyone. The marketing campaign for the DROID was impressive, the whole iDont concept caught my attention but I don't think the handset will be a contender to Apple's stranglehold on the industry. Instead I feel that this phone may catapult Android into the mainstream, with the continued development of the operating system and the release of Android 2.0 the momentum is building. 2010 should be interesting, watch this space..
