Which version of Android is it running? What features does it have and is it upgradable in the future as Android is upgraded? What apps will it have and what is the cost?
Don't buy this phone. It's locked down and modified by AT&T. You can't select to install from "untrusted" sources which means you're LOCKED into a smaller market with less apps. If an app disappears from the market you can't reinstall it from the SD card, your WiFi or the web. You can't even use Google as the default search engine on the search bar. 1.5 framework means no Google Nav, no voice search. This isn't the Android we've been waiting for. This isn't open. :( Speaking from personal experience after purchasing this phone to return it later!!
I want the droid, the origional but no internet the internet is just to expensive for me and im not going to pay that much if i dont use it c'mon now can i get a better deal.
Yeah I was kinda thrown off by the fact that Yahoo is the search engine for AT&Ts only Google phone.
Hmmm; gchick why would you want a droid with no internet, that defeats the point of having it. Either way Verizon won't let you add one to your account without internet. You can though get a 10 dollar web package that they do not advertise. I don't remember what the specifics are, but my little girl has it and texting. The main thing is it is a limited amount of available download or connection to the internet itself.
I know it is a cool looking phone, but I don't think they will sell it to you for the reduced price without some web package included, especially for the Droid, although you can try to get the minimal package. That is what I am going to try to do when my upgrade comes on the 18th, the use my home connection to install things on it App wise. I am kind of thinking it is self defeating though because I will get the minimal (!0 meg I think it is package), and use the web minimally. Or I will just wait, because so much stuff is coming out, and if the current trend here in the Atlanta area of 4G coming earlier than most cities get one when it is in place here.
Yeees! (devilish laugh) Sign your soul over to AT&T! With a two year contract?
not really making me do backflips over here.
I saw a used sidekick the other day from about four years ago, That thing was huge. If one doesn't really have the need to upgrade from your IPhone, I really don't see the point in all these gymicy buyme phones? If everyone just stops giving into buying these gimmicks, then maybe the phone companies would be forced to lower their prices and provide better service! Wouldn't it be nice to get last years IPhone for 50dlrs, and pay 30per month for the same service?
I think I will wait for that little starfleet badge that can communicate from the spaceship or all around the globe with a single touch and use a tricorder for my PDA?
