Android Invasion: Hot Devices Driving Google's OS Blockbuster

Motorola Droid

Released last fall, it was the first big-splash Android smartphone: a powerhouse (for the time) of features and a hype cycle -- complete with splashy advertising campaign -- worthy of Apple. Motorola's first Droid has a 3.7 inch touch screen, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, 7 hours of talk time, an OMAP3430 processor, 512 MB of Flash memory, 256 MB RAM, and a micro SD slot expandable up to 16 GB. It was also the first Android phone to include Android 2.0, which in November 2009 was the most up to date version available.
