What do I have to do to pre-order?
show up at a verizon store on the 6th, looks like they aren't doing pre-orders. but it seems like stores should be stocked decently. i'm showing up when they open next week (partly to make sure i get one, and partly because i'm really really impatient) thank god for being off on fridays!
Do you have the SAR data (radiation exposure) info?
if it has a 5MP camera like the hero, is it possible 2.0 will let the hero take the same quality video? or is it something else that lets the droid take videos at that resolution/frame rate?
the size of the CCD isn't the issue with most any phone as even a 2.0MP sensor has enough pixels to render video at those resolutions, it probably comes down the processing power. the CPU in the hero might just not have the muscle to render the video at the resolution. while i'm sure HTC could "unlock" it if they wanted, but i'm sure they had good reason not to have it set so high in the first place. also, the video would then be larger than the screen, without downscaling it, it would be kind of hard to see...
Does it have a compass? Specs on Motorola's webpage says it has an "eCompass". What does that mean?
srsly, E-Compass ???
Do we know if there is tethering capability?
That phones nice! Y didn't tmobile pic it up? Could it be unlocked?
Good-bye ATT. Good-bye Apple. I don't have to deal with poor reception and the most dropped calls. I don't have to kiss ATT or Apple's ### anymore. I get a keyboard, a real camera with flash, replaceable battery, 32MB micro memory, and DVD-quality video capture and playback (720x480). I'll pay the early termination fee just to be rid of two arrogant companies at the same time. When my I-phone was stolen you guys wouldn't even give me a break on a new one or let me get the new 3GS phone. Be sure to have extra customer reps to handle the terminations on Nov. 6. You reap what you sow.
the phone is CDMA only, so unlocking it wouldn't do anything to get it on any network besides verizon. it has a compass.
verizon has phones already. i went verizon store here in oxnard ca to play with the storm 2. i just played dumd with the sales rep and she said she had them, so i ask if they had a floor model, she went to the back and got me one out of the box. I am definately sold. the first thing i asked her was if i could take a picture to show my wife but she said not until they release it. but they are in, she even thinks it might be out before the 6th.
What?! How does it have a 1400mAh battery and only 6.5 hours of talk time? the Omnia 2 has a 1500mAh battery and gets TEN hours of talk time. It also has a processor that's 250Mhz faster, and a larger hard-drive. This thing must run a ridiculous amount of background stuff to drain a battery THAT big THAT fast. All that aside, if the processor was 800Mhz, I'd buy this in a heart-beat. Fo sho' :P
because the frequency of the processor isn't the end all of how much power it consumes (unless it's the same processor, then we're talking about something we can compare) comparing the ARM11 in the samsung to the A8 in the droid is comparing apples to oranges. the pre and iphone get less talk time than the droid and they are running the same processor at (at different speeds) so it looks like moto bumping the speed down to 550 has netted them some extra talk time (but oddly, less standby) by your reasoning, you'd rather have a 3Ghz celeron computer instead of a 2.6ghz core i7 computer. so that's the long winded reason why a 1400mAh battery can "only" give 6.5hrs of talk time :)
Specs say it will tether but Verizon charging for it ... root crack?
WHO will be the first site to post pictures and video previews taken from Droid... who?
Ah yeah, to see the camera quality.
Can you go abroad with this puppy? Sim card? GSM support?
Nope...as it says, it's just CDMA for the time being. Hopefully there will be revisions later so that the civilized world can use it, but right now it's obsolete before it's even been released since it uses a format that only 3 carriers in the world use. Sad, really. However, all is not lost.
This Phone will not come out before the 6th and they are NOT at stores yet, at least not "in stock" despite what was stated above. I guess some vzw reps dont mind risking their jobs bring demo units on to the floor. I would not expect this launch to be as short handed at the Storm 1 launch, I have played with it and as others have said in reviews, it just feels like a high quality Motorola phone, think better than Razor2 build quality. I cant wait to get mine!
DOES THE DROID HAVE AN TV OUT CONNECTION SO Y CAN PLAY OR WARCH YR PHOTOS ON TELEVISION??
any news on that video out?
I tried posting a similar question about TV-OUT for the Droid on Phonescoop.com. Nobody seems to know the answer. Besides, now that Verizon has a new $350 cancellation fee for smart phones, I think I'll hold off for awhile.
Yea..... im looking for TV Out too...... I have a modified Myvu Crystal that I made monocular..... wonder if we can do anything with the 3.5m jack?
So since it runs off the CDMA network, which is verizons (right?), then if it were to be unlocked, it would work on walmarts new cell phone thing correct? If I remember right, they are going to be running off of verizons network. So then you could have a awesome phone, a cheap plan, and no contract! Unless I'm wrong :)
The Droid does not have TV-Out.
is there anyone out there know where to put the sim card into the droi phone'? I have it unlocked on ebay
The sought-after Wonder of Its Age. I still have mine and while it powers-up it's mostly just an artifact now for the media still contained on its original 16GB micro SD card. This original Motorola Droid had me stubbornly hooked on 'sliders' through the Droid 4 (oh, yes, it was a slider or nothing at all for several years). Good times.
