Well, you may have heard something about this, but Verizon released their Droids upon the world today. There was all sorts of fanfare, and teasers leading up to this date in history and it has finally happened. Today, Android grew, not only to incorporate an additional carrier, but the evolution of Android is upon us. I went and spent some time with the two new Android phones and well, I wasn’t entirely impressed hardware wise. The Eris, which is really a disguised HTC Hero, is just another HTC Android phone with that pretty Sense UI, so nothing new there. It works, I have to say that, but I’m not dying to have it. The Motorola Droid (which is more important to us, since it may find its way to Magenta) is pretty nice, flat keyboard and lack of multi-touch support aside. The most important thing here, though, is Android 2.0, and well, it has come a long way–though it is still not quite consumer friendly (which shouldn’t stop any of you). I really see potential with Eclair and can’t wait to see it on some T-Mobile phones, especially after all the kinks are worked out (and multi-touch is actually implemented in everything). Until then, though, enjoy a picture of the Droid sporting TmoNews colors and I’ll give you a follow up with more opinions on Android 2.0, and some other Android related things in the future (if you want it, of course). Leave your thoughts in the comments!
