I think that for the hardware/software configuration, the Motorola Droid is the best choice for Verizon. I'm loving it and I already read the manual in .pdf. However, I'm waiting as late as Q2, 2010. The Google handset will likely be out in January and feature OS 2.1 and a 1GHz cpu. That processor alone is worth waiting for. The same is true for the identical processor in the HTC Passion via VZW, rumored to be out for the holidays. In addition, the HTC Passion has some very inviting GUI tweaks that the Motorola lacks. The HTC UIC includes SEVEN virtual desktops, whereas the Droid has only three. I'm waiting until I can make a three-way comparison before I buy. Can't wait to dump my Blackberry! What's your opinion? Is this a good judgement or a flawed judgement??
