Google touches add value to Droid - The Boston Globe

Droid reviews in today’s Boston Globe and the WSJ (Walt Mossberg’s perspective).  My overall take: the Droid may not an iPhone killer, but it is definitely not good news for Palm Pre fans.

I love it when big, rich technology companies start smacking each other around like robots in a Transformers movie, because you’ll generally find some pretty cool gadgets poking out of the wreckage.

Here’s one of them now: the Droid, Motorola’s first phone to use the Android operating system developed by Internet search titan Google Inc. It’s also the first Android phone to be offered by the nation’s largest cellular carrier, Verizon Wireless. The Droid goes on sale tomorrow for $199 after a $100 rebate, and with a two-year Verizon service contract.
