Health Care and Smartphones: CNET review of the Motorola Droid

Hooray! We finally have the Motorola Droid in our hands. Though it’s much too early to offer a full critique, we can report that Verizon’s first Google Android device is a looker. The display is gorgeous, Android 2.0 looks spiffy, and the handset appears to be lightning fast. Though we’ll refrain from using the dreaded “iPhone killer” expression, comparisons between the two devices are obvious, particularly in light of Verizon’s snarky ad campaign.

I’ve been a blackberry fan forever… although the trackball issues with their latest phone on VZW is horribly annoying. I love the iPhone and carry one next to my blackberry (what you don’t have two phones?) for the incredible apps which certainly streamline my daily activities.

Hopefully the developers community will step up and build for the Droid what they have built for the iPhone with regards to health care apps…
