Talk, Surf, and Chew Gum?
I have not yet purchased a Droid. I am still with AT&T, but am sick of the frequency of dropped calls (plus their don't give a damn attitude).
However, in researching this phone, there are many conflicting opinions about whether it is possible to talk and surf at the same time. Most report no, not on VZ's network.
With AT&T, you can, if you're on their 3G network. I use Google Maps in the car, and often chat on my phone to pass the time.
If this is not possible, it would limit the ability to use the Google GPS feature of the Droid, at least for me.
Already I'm looking at paying AT&T an ETF, in addition to accepting VZ's new, improved $350 ETF.
What I am asking is if any of you actual Droid users (on the 3G network of course) can confirm or deny whether this is possible? :icon_eek:

CDMA Development Group Announces Improvements with SVDO - SlashGear
But the kicker for customers? The creation of SVDO, or Simultaneous 1x Voice and EV-DO Data. This allows for CDMA networks the ability to utilize the phone portion of a mobile device, and the data connection at the same time.
