So, I have now spent almost a whole weekend with my latest toy, the Verizon Motorola Droid, (click on the picture above to read a full review at Boy Genius Report)

As a point of reference, I also spent a few months with an iPod Touch (effectively an iPhone without the phone bit).

In summary, I love this thing!  It is definitely not as simple to learn and use as an iPhone, but that is because there is so much more that you can do with it.

I love the way that it integrates with Google apps.  Within a few minutes of turning it on for the first time I had my email, contacts, and calendar all on board and easy to access.

The navigator is amazing.  Yesterday I had to drop of a package at Fed Ex (funny story, Calum broke a cymbal under warranty.  They asked how it broke – answer: hit it with a drum stick!).  All I had to do was pick up my phone and speak into it “navigate to Fed Ex”.  Up comes a list of Fed Ex locations, choose the closest and it gets me there.  Along the way displaying live traffic and it I want, the satellite or Street View images of my travel!

The keyboard is ok, but will take a little getting used to.  I have to say though that I really like the onscreen one and find it better to use than the iPhone one.

My only real disappointment has been the camera which I haven’t manager to get any decent photos with (I do have some great videos though).

And, best of all, Therap works beautifully!
