Droid has a graphics processor that is similar to the one found in the Nokia N900.
The Motorola Droid comes with a 16GB memory card that can be replaced by a 32GB version down the road. That's pretty comfortable
Music: All the functions are there and it works well. As usual, it is possible to search per artist, album, song or playlist, but it's also possible to do a search by keyword (just start typing in the music player app), which is very practical, especially if you have a lot of media files. I have tested the sound output with a pair of Bose ComfortQuiet 15 headphones, and the sound quality is like most smartphones - not good, not bad. There are reports saying that the sound quality is "Excellent", but it doesn't sound better *to me* that common Mp3 players or smartphones
YouTube playback: YouTube video playback is very good. I've tried playing high-quality files over Verizon's 3G network and the playback is very good: The included photos and videos speak for themselves. Basically, you can browse Youtube's mobile site and when you find a video that you like, click on it and it will launch the Android YouTube application that will play the file in full screen (landscape mode). As usual, there's no support for Hulu
Like most Android phones, the Droid uses a lock pattern
The Motorola Droid has a very good email support. Gmail is obviously there, and email in general should be easy to setup when using popular email services. I use Exchange for work, and there's Exchange support out of the box in Android 2.0. If you wonder, this is true "push email", just like Blackberry (and other) phones. I question the gray background design of the email app, and I sure wish that there was a way to customize it, but it is not a deal breaker. Having an email widget that shows the last 10 emails on the homepage would be great too. If you setup all your accounts in the Email application (that means not using a Gmail app) you can have a combined view of your Emails -
All in all, the email experience is great
Topping the display is the forward-facing camera along with the service LED that starts flashing whenever you receive an SMS or some other event occurs
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2009haha oh really? i guess the 3gs proved that with the ability to multitask.... oh wait it cant ... moreThose who are looking for a QWERTY-enabled device jam-packed with features and a likable, speedy interface, the Milestone is the way to go. In fact, there aren't many phone like that out there - maybe the Nokia N900, but it's considerably slower, less stable and doesn't offer comparable functionality out of the box. In my opinion, the choice is very clear and Nokia is not what's on my mind. "Milestone" is a very fitting name for this phone - it will make an impact on the market and won't go unnoticed. Those who are into expensive and well-crafted things, should definitely put the Motorola Milestone on their short lists
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2009haha oh really? i guess the 3gs proved that with the ability to multitask.... oh wait it cant ... moreThis phone is nice :] love the screen my only problem is the keyboard and the camera :/ and maybe the audio quality :/
my 3gs can multitask ROFL i use backgrounder+kirikae combo and my 3gs can background apps with no problem. and what apps on n900? there are so little apps right now, the quality of them probably suck anyways. so they suck so much they probably take like 2 mb of ram each. Dont talk until u get apps that actually make FULL use of ur hardware, like need for speed shift on iphone. my iphone 3gs will kick ur n900's ass anyday. rofl, the camera has better picture and video quality, better apps, the graphic card is better(and before u go saying they have the same graphic card, iphone 3gs has the powervr sgx535 while ur n900 has sgx530!!! sgx535 is 2x faster than the 530, search the specs urself on google), ui is killer. plus the fact that it is a capacitive screen is like icing on the cake. so go take ur nokia "brick" n900 and screw off.

Plenty of side by side reviews out there and most will say the Moto is faster. It's not all down to just clockspeed.
Check out mobile-review.com if you don't believe me.

The screen's depend on preferences and both have pros and cons.
this is awesome
best smartphone around the world
well done moto
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2009lol N900 is faster than all these phones you have mentionedmilestone is very beter than n900

Anonymous, 17 Dec 2009lol N900 is faster than all these phones you have mentionedim not sure with you
milestone speed is unrivaled
if dont bilieve me see milestone review in mobile-review.com
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2009yes this is 55o mhz but multi tasking cpu make milestone speed over n900 hd2 x10 and other rivallol N900 is faster than all these phones you have mentioned
Smarty, 17 Dec 2009arm cortex is much more powerfull than Qualcom, so 550MHzarm cortex is probably close to 1GHz ... moreWell said dude. Comparing a snapdragon with an IMAP processor is like comparing a pentium 4 running on 3 GHZ with an Intel I7 running on 2.4 GHZ. higher GHZ speed doesnt mean faster. Different technology, and IMAP processors are much faster
yes this is 55o mhz but multi tasking cpu make milestone speed over n900 hd2 x10 and other rival
I bought this phone like a week ago from expansys.co.uk
Great phone with great specs and lot applications to download.
The only bad thing is the battery life....Doesnt last for a day. Dont know if I am doing anything wrong...
A lot of posts here are full of wrong information that's not even funny. I hope people do read the review of the DROID from here before making the decision http://www.engadget.com/2009/10/30/motorola-droid-review/
