Identification and Background ¶ 

Released in October of 2009, the Droid was released with the intent of being a strong competitor in the iPhone dominated smart-phone market. The Droid runs the Android operating system designed by Google, and comes standard with free turn-by-turn Google Maps Navigation. In addition to having an extensive library of available applications, the software is completely open-source, allowing the user to customize the phone any way they see fit.

The Motorola Droid is easily identifiable by its slide-out keyboard with a large gold D-pad. Its successor, the Droid 2, looks similar to the original model, but does not have a D-pad on the redesigned keyboard.
