Motorola's Android 2.0-based Droid: out during by year's end

Droid will ship before the end of the year, Motorola said, although the firm hasn’t yet confirmed which locations that date will apply to. So we’ll keep our fingers crossed for a pre-Christmas launch in Blighty.

The smartphone is “powered by Android 2.0”, Motorola added, and will provide “high-speed web”, “voice-activated search” and “a super large touchscreen”.

Voice-activated search, anyone?

The 60 x 115 x 13mm phone is also “the thinnest full Qwerty slider available”, Motorola added.

Some Droid features worth mentioning include the smartphone’s Flash 10 capability, support for 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Assisted GPS and its 5Mp camera – which stores pictures on Micro SD memory cards.
