    I read that as well. That is very cool if they're closing in on 1 million sold already.

    Read the negative review as well... All I can say is that my experience is NOTHING like his. There are some things that I would like to see improved, but the only things crashing on mine are apps Ive downloaded, and when that happens they are promptly un-installed.

    Ive had two instances (in almost two weeks) where I needed to power it off, and back on again to get my email to sync... other than that, the Droid is performing flawlessly - exceeding my expectations so far.

    Having said all that, my previous Treo 755P was pretty much flawless for its first year, then started having LOTS Of problems. Will see how the Droid holds up.

    Yeah lets go Droid, not because it is the end all/be all but competition is good for the consumer. The more high end phones with great functionality we have the lower the price will be.

    The moronic post that the article refers to is off base and generally self-serving. Then again I have yet to see someone who uses an Iphone pass on praise to another device.

    My experience with this phone has been 180 degrees from his and I almost venture to say that he is full of b.s.

    P.S. - I'm happy to see moto back in the game, they made my first cell phone that I bought in 1992.

    I love it :). the droid really is an amazing device and its the first phone that everyone always asks me "is that a droid". Not only did Motorola do a great job on creating an amazing device, I think the marketing campaign is whats really led to this. Everyone is seeing this phone on tv and everyone knows about it. I'm pumped to be apart of this i know thats for sure!!

    VZ droid/coverage commercials are fantastic, and i love to see ATT/Apple scrambling to spit out those horrid Luke Wilson commercials :)

    This is my favorite quote in the whole thing.

    "The keyboard is horrible and I’ve never used it"

    hahahaha whut whut?

    "Thai food is horrible and I've never ate it"

    Yeah the whole article is pretty funny because you know it's all nonsense. Thats just ridiculous of him to write those things. If that were true, and I say IF, he must have had a unit that was submerged in water, ran over and dropped from a 2 story building then given to him.

    After I read it, I found it funny that the article had to link to some obscure post to find a scathing review. All the larger, more legitimate sites (i.e., Engaget, Computerworld, Gizmodo) all give the Droid a big thumbs up.
