Well I just got my Motorola Droid. This phone is great. I replaces a HTC Fuze with windows mobile. There are a few things it had that the droid does not. The Fuze has a much better keyboard with raised keys. I like how Windows Mobile combines call log with the phone interface. I also like how on WM I can start typing a number and it will search my log. Other than that Droid blows away the Fuze and all other phones. I like the way you unlock the phone without a code. I like all the great apps. I think I have played about 100 games of Yahtzee. I have to say I have not seen a good solitaire game yet. The thing I like the most is the huge screen. The gmail program works real nice as well.

I got a Motorola Droid 1 week ago. Very happy, only drawback is tiny keyboard, but just something to get used to using.

Hey, at least you Droid users HAVE a keyboard unless us Hero users.

I don't miss it though.

I like the keyboard on my G1 better than on Droid. But the phone is blazing fast and snappy!

I just drove from NY to St.Louis. The Droid came was very useful. As my wife drove I was surfing the web, exploring new apps, etc. Looked up and viola she had driven 200 miles.
Then, it began to look ominous. Used the Radar Now app. Hit a snow storm and was amazed at the accuracy of the radar's intensity to the real intensity.
Ended up pulling off just past Indy for the night and let it pass.
Very impressed in the practical use and practical apps. More the games and toys.

Yes it does. I use the dolphin browser and I get multi touch. I think Google did not make a multi touch browser by default because apple would sue them. android 2.0 supports multi touch and so does the motorola droid.

The Droid has no multitouch. It is in the code, but is not enabled by Google or the handset manufacturer. Individual apps may have multitouch, but multitouch is not available as a default feature and without some creative jailbreaking or app purchase - hence the Droid has no multitouch.

However, the Droids' sibling in Europe has multitouch - but it is not a Droid.

The only reason is because Apple will sue them. They would love to add it.
