Motorola Droid: A Moto-iPhone killer?

On October 19, 2009, in Cell Phones, by KLS

A slim sliding QWERTY, a five megapixel camera, 3.7-inch display, a slim body just slightly thicker than that of the iPhone, oh and it runs Android 2.0 – could this be the perfect iPhone killer waiting to be unleashed?


Hardware wise, the Motorola Droid will be the most competent Android phone yet to fight it out against the likes of iPhone 3GS and the Palm Pre. Underneath the business smartphone style design is the same snappy core processor, the TI OMAP3430 which powers the iPhone 3GS.

Good news to fans of solar gadgets, LG’s new mobile phone, the GD510 may appear to look like any LG phone running S-Class UI but in fact its secret lies on its back. The GD510 will apparently have an optional solar panel that will replace the battery cover and can be used to charge the phone’s battery. We are yet to find out how exactly this mechanism will be achieved, but it sounds like this won’t be an accessory you will find on unboxing.


The phone comes with a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display with a resolution of 240 x 400, a 3-megapixel camera, and a 8GB of storage space to store your captured pictures or videos. The LG GD510 will be available beginning in mid-October in Europe, it will be interesting to know if this solar panel will in the future be compatible with other currently existing LG phones.
