The Motorola Droid has been touted as a potential iPhone killer by any number of reviewers since its Nov. 6 debut, and the device does indeed offer many features that could allow it to seize substantial market share in the smartphone arena. The Droid runs the Google Android v2.0 operating system, which integrates services such as Gmail, YouTube and easy access to Amazon.com's MP3 Store. For those who use their smartphones as a productivity platform, the Droid offers a good deal of functionality in that department. For business users, the Droid offers up integration with Exchange 2003 and 2007, as well as the ability to view Microsoft Office and PDF documents. Its Google Maps Navigation beta offers voice-guided navigation, while the 5-megapixel integrated camera includes auto-focus and the ability to edit images. The following slides delve into these features and more.
