Motorola Droid QWERTY keyboard

The Motorola Droid (aka Sholes) is the cellphone maker’s second Android-based smartphone after the CLIQ. Boosted by a Texas Instruments OMAP3430 550MHz processor, 256M RAM and a dedicated PowerVR GPU, the Motorola Droid supports CDMA Rev.A network (GSM/WCDMA will also available), GPS and WiFi.

The Droid gets a 3.7-inch 854×480 touchscreen display, a side-slide QWERTY keyboard, a 5 Megapixel auto focus camera with dual LED flash, touch-sensitive buttons and a 3.5mm headset jack. Unlike other MOTO phones, the Droid looks pretty stylish and is one of the slimmest QWERTY devices. The phone is nicely built, according to BGR, “it’s mostly metal, and while it’s heavy, it gives you a reassuring quality feel that you just don’t find much nowadays as handsets get thinner, lighter, smaller, and cheaper.”

Motorola’s Droid will run the Android 2.0 OS. It will be released by Verizon Wireless in the US. You can see more pictures and a video below:
