Gallery: Droid vs. iPhone

A brief gallery of the Droid from Motorola and Verizon Wireless. First by itself, then next to my beat-up iPhone 3GS. The Droid is definitely boxier and bulkier, but hey, you've got to put all those features (like its physical keyboard) somewhere.

I've posted a gallery of the Droid smartphone by Motorola and Verizon Wireless. The first several photos are views of the handset by itself and the last provides a comparison to the iPhone. The hardware design of Droid is solid if a little bulky. It's larger and heavier than the iPhone (6 oz. vs. 4.8 oz.) but that's a side-effect of the slide out keyboard. The keyboard requires some effort to slide up and isn't spring-assisted like some other devices like the Sidekick. The keyboard itself is disappointing and mushy as I said in my review, but there's always the virtual keyboard which arrived in Android 1.5 (Cupcake).
