Unlike the iPhone, the Droid has a battery that can be removed. It also features GPS and is the first device with Google Maps Navigation, which offers turn-by-turn voice guidance as a free complement to Google Maps. Users can interact with it using voice instructions, such as telling it where they want to go.
The Droid’s screen can be customized, and users will have access to what Verizon says are hundreds of available widgets and more than 12,000 applications. Like the Palm Pre—but unlike the iPhone—the Droid lets users navigate between up to six open applications at once.
