One response to “My Droid Review”

  1. Does it Matter?

    Tap the power button in the top right corner to wake it up. The phone defaults to sleep in 1 minute but you can change that in the settings.

    There’s also an app in the store that wakes it up if you shake it really quick like an etch-a-sketch. I think it’s the same as an existing iPhone app. Haven’t used it yet but was told about it.

    Any keyboard is better than no keyboard for me, but if you don’t need one, check out Sony’s Android phone that’s coming out in Q1. 1ghz processor (roughly twice the processing power of the Droid and iPhone) and a camera that kills the Droid’s. If it had a keyboard I probably would have waited. Based on what I’m seeing in the pipeline from Sony, Dell, etc there are some interesting Android phones on the way.

    My viewpoint on apps is that there are maybe 2,000 apps in the iPhone App store that need to exist and Android probably has 70% of them already (or a knock off). I asked other people in my industry what business tools they used on their iPhone that were “difference makers” and so far I’ve found apps that do the same thing on the Droid for all of them.

    However way too many of the iPhone AND Droid apps are just things you can do on a web browser. What I want to see on any platform are apps that add real value.

    Also, take a few minutes and install some Widgets on the phone for your wife- like weather, news, Facebook, etc. It’s really handy to just look at the phone in the morning and automatically get the weather instead of having to open an app up to see it- especially if you’re limited to running just one app at a time…
