Motorola Droid Hands-on pictures and videos

There’s obviously a whole lot of Motoroal Droid and Android coverage thanks to the Droid launch and Google Maps Navigation announcement today. Here are acouple of pictures and videos of the device in action:

And finally a video of the GSM version:

Notice that the browser does support multi-touch zooming!

Here’s Engadget’s first impressions:

- That big screen is killer. Bright, crisp, and tons of room for your icons and widgets.
- Speed is noticeably improved — particularly when moving from app to app. We did notice that some of the home screen scrolling looked laggy.
- Android 2.0 is definitely cleaned up — but it’s most definitely still Android
- The browser seems significantly improved — pages now load up in a fully zoomed-out mode, and the load times and scrolling are way snappier.
- The keyboard takes some getting used to, and it suffers from a similar hand-position issue as the G1, but it’s fairly usable. We think it’ll be second nature once we spend some time with it.
- Facebook is integrated into accounts, which means some of that BLUR functionality is here (though now it’s part of Android 2.0 natively). The good news is that when you add a Facebook account you can choose to pull all Facebook info and contacts, or just info related to your existing contacts — a real clutter buster.

I’ll post my thoughts regarding the Droid and the new Google Navigation later on so stay tuned…
