Droid, considered by many early reviewers to be a worthy challenger to the Apples iPhone has landed on store shelves. Whether it will also challenge Apple's popular phone in terms of sales has yet to be seen, but there were some hardy shoppers lined up to be among the first to slip one into their pockets. With the DROID, Motorola has perhaps created its most attractive and intriguing piece of technology yet. Forging an alliance with both Verizon and Google, Motorola has come up with a second compelling reason to count the phone maker down, but certainly not out, while the other two giants have finally found a seemingly worthy device to position against the iPhone.
Verizon and Motorola finally lifted the curtain on their new Droid Android phone yesterday. Make no mistake, this is Android’s flagship product, and the first phone that will pose a significant threat to Apple’s iPhone. The phone is a three-way effort between Motorola, Verizon and Google. It looks a lot like the iPhone, and may even be as thin or thinner than the iPhone 3GS. It also has two key advantages over the iPhone – a slide out physical keyboard, and use of the Verizon network. Unlike previous Android phones, the Droid is rumored to be powered by the TI OMAP3430, the same core that the iPhone and Palm Pre use, and which significantly outperforms Qualcomm 528MHz ARM11 based Android phones that exist today Droid will also be running v.2.0 of Android, with a significantly upgraded user interface.
If you’re hankering for the Droid, the hot, new smartphone from Verizon, listen up: Flipswap, a mobile device recycling site, is offering Apple iPhone users up to $450 for their devices. Even the original iPhone, now two years old, will get you $100. That’s enough to help offset, or even cover, the cost of breaking your contract with AT&T, exclusive U.S. distributor of the iPhone, and buying a Droid. The device costs $99-$199 with a two-year contract.

After the disappointment of the Samsung Instinct S30, Samsung has redeemed itself with the Samsung Instinct HD for Sprint. Both an upgrade and an improvement over the original Instinct, the Instinct HD offers a sleeker design, a brighter display, and more features. However, be prepared to pay a price for this cell phone. Samsung Instinct HD offers a sleek design with an attractive user interface and a brilliant display. Its HD-capable camera is one of the best around, photo and video quality are sharp, and the loaded feature set includes Wi-Fi.
One of the key HD features about the Instinct HD it’s mentioned multiple times on the box is the ability to play your photos and videos back on auxiliary HD devices. The phone even has a mini-HDMI video out port on its side. The Samsung Instinct HD does take advantage of some of Sprint’s cool video services, like Sprint TV (which offers a mix of live and pre-packaged TV and video clips) and the NFL Mobile Live service, which lets you watch live football games. Both of these services are included with the voice and data plans that Sprint offers for the Instinct HD, which start at $69.99 a month.
The Instinct HD went on sale Sunday, September 27 for $249 with a service contract. As much as the phone offers, we find the price rather hard to swallow. After all, you can get a full smartphone like the HTC Hero for $70 cheaper, but if high-end multimedia is your main interest, the Instinct HD should deliver them. The major selling point on the Samsung Instinct HD, however, is in the name; the smartphone offers a 5-megapixel autofocus camera that shoots video in 720p HD – a first for mainstream devices in the U.S. The capacitive touchscreen is highly responsive and the haptic feedback on the virtual QWERTY is excellent. Also excellent is the SMS/MMS/Exchange messaging. With that in place, owners can use the Instinct HD to watch content from their phone, the microSD card inside, or from the internet on their big-screen TV. Samsung have also preloaded Opera Mobile 9.7, Twitter and Facebook access and Visual Voicemail, to which Sprint add Sprint TV, Sprint Navigation (with 2D and 3D mapping) and various sports-related apps.
Full Touchscreen with Accelerometer : The Samsung Instinct HD is perfectly in sync with you. The advanced touchscreen is extraordinarily responsive to your touch, a fact made quite clear with haptic feedback. The orientation of the screen instinctively rotates from portrait mode to landscape mode when you turn the device, thanks to the built-in accelerometer.
Full HTML Web Browser : See your favorite websites on the Instinct HD the way you see them on your computer. The built-in full HTML web browser even lets you bookmark them to spare you from having to re-enter those URL addresses. To enjoy a wider view, simply rotate the phone into landscape view
Advanced GPS Navigation (2D & 3D Maps) : Running on empty? Search for the nearest gas station by proximity to your exact location. Check out prices beforehand, too. Looking for a Wi-Fi hotspot? With the Samsung Instinct HD you can search for Wi-Fi spots and find out which ones are free. Keep your eyes on the road with audible, turn-by-turn directions to your destination. If it’s a friend of yours that is lost, send them directions in a message
Visual Voicemail : Whose call did you just miss? Now it takes even less time to figure out which messages to listen to and which ones to delete. With the Visual Voicemail display, you can now see who called out of the corner of your eye.
5.0MP Camera & TV Out Capable : Capture stunning pictures and video with the built-in 5.0MP camera. You can either check it out in all its high-res glory on the 3.2" HVGA screen, or view it on the HDTV in your living room with the TV Out feature
