I have both the Moto Droid and the HTC Incredible, and I am absolutely happy with the Android OS. I look forward to seeing what new phones will carry the DROID namesake.

it's not what does the HTC do, it's does droid do

HTC does everything the droid can, it's just about the form factor and what you want. I know a lot of people who don't like the HTC cause of the horrible battery life and no physical keyboard, but they like it cause it's got a faster CPU and it's thinner.

moto droid is fatter and heavier but has a physical keyboard and feels a lil more rugged.

All the androids do the same thing, unless their from AT&T...then your just getting whatever apple wants you to have. It's about how the phone feels in your hand and what features you like.

Personally I say if you want a faster phone, root the moto droid, get setcpu, OC the thing and wallah, you got something as fast as the HTC.

IF you wanna try the HTC and you got it from verizon, they have a program called...uhm.....something that's a trial, you have 30 days to bring it back and try a different phoine but you pay the restock fee of like 20-30 bucks.

I've had my moto droid for lil over a month now and I absolutely love it.

Oh and HTC can't do this...

Thats exactly what I did. I have mine OC'd to 900mhz and I cannot tell the difference between the two.

Oh and BTW, the restocking fee (provided you are within 30 days from date of purchase) is $35.

Launcher Pro just hit the scene. Very nice home replacement. Very slick and fast. Works on rooted or unrooted phones.


In case you missed it in the news section:
FROYO (Android 2.2) Improvements:
Quote:
1) Improved Speed -- Just as it was rumored, the next version of Android will have a JIT compiler, responsible for a significant (2x-5x) speed boost.

2) Better Enterprise Support -- The platform has lagged behind Windows Mobile and BlackBerry in terms of enterprise functionality, but FroYo will include over 20 new enterprise features. These include better Exchange support, with auto-discovery, improved security, and GAL lookup, and new device admin APIs.

3) Cloud-to-Device API -- Google services, Chrome extensions, and soon-to-be released Chrome apps will be able to sync with your Android device. If you need directions from Google Maps, it can be sent directly.

4) Tethering -- This was also a rumored feature for a few weeks. The feature will be in the "settings" menu, and clicking "portable wi-fi hotspot."

5) New Browser -- The Javascript interpreter in Chrome will be used in FroYo's native browser, offering a 2x-3x Javascript performance boost. Google's Vic Gundotra said it will be the fastest mobile browser available.

6) Install apps on SD memory -- One of the main problems people had with Android was that you could not install apps on your removable memory card, you were limited to the device's physical memory, which in some cases was quite limited. In FroYo, apps can be moved to, and launched from, the phone's SD card.

7) Flash 10.1 and AIR support -- This one is not a surprise, as Adobe and Google have both said this would be coming.

8) Web-based Android Market -- Without a doubt one of the weakest aspects of consuming apps on the Android Platform was that you were limited to only seeing what was shown on your mobile device's screen, which in most cases is not very appealing.

9) App auto-updating -- When an app you downloaded gets updated, you would get a notification that there was an update available in the Market. You'd have to navigate to the market and click OK three or four times per update just to get it installed. In FroYo, there will be an "Update All" icon, and the ability to check "allow automatic updating" when you download a new app. Apps can be purchased on the Web-based store and synced down to your Android device.

10) Music Sync -- Even though it's got a decent media player, Android devices have never had the music power that iPhone has with its built-in iPod functionality. With FroYo, however, users will be able to sync their local music collection with their Android device and stream wirelessly.
It's funny, a lot of these features are available currently for rooted phones only. Now if they just added in overclocking then I would unroot for sure.

Yeah I've started using launcher pro to replace Helix 1. I find it snappier and it's app drawer is perfect. Has the 2.1 button, but doesn't have the whole cube 3d thing, just a flat black surface. I just wish that the tray could let you pin different apps, but I'm sure he's working on it.

I'm really glad it looks like Google is taking a hint from the android community and adding many of the features that the rooted users have developed. There will always be things that will require root, but soon they may kill off the need for ROMs, except for maybe themed ones.
