    I WAS eyeing the iphone , but when I found out about Droid , I became very interested , much more than iphone. I completely believe in anything os. I can not buy or commit to anything without a bunch of reviews and , of course full specs. So when waited patiently for the countdown to end , I was hoping for an unveiling with meat. Now I've spent an hour and a half everywhere online, but nothing is really new. Has anyone seen an official spec sheet, final copy? I've seen the one that got posted by mistake last week on verizon , but has either motorola or verizon posted anything official? How about reviews, will they come after the 6th, or sooner?

    The Droid "officially" launched about an hour ago. Stuff will start to trickle out later today and over the next few days.

    Those aren't full specs (almost feels like they are directly avoiding publishing them). I couldn't see anything about mem and rom. or if 2.0 still requires apps be installed to rom or if they can be installed to sd.

    I am guessing we will know that today after some people post their hands on with the device. I am curious about that as well.

    That's a 16GB Micro SD card pre-installed and supports up to a 32GB micro SD card... But that's not phone memory...

    So now I'm going to have to wait for and buy a 32GB micro SD that doesn't exist yet?

    Yep... And it's not like the 16GB that you get WITH the phone is all that small...

    Well, sort of. it's a pre-installed micro SD card just like the BB Storm had an 8GB in the phone out of the box and the Storm2 has a 16GB in the phone out of the box, but the Droid supports up to a 32GB micro SD card...

    And where do you see that it says built in? All I see is that it says 16GB memory and then under that it says 32GB expandable...

    Under Tunes it says "Store all your tunes with built-in 16GB of memory expandable to 32GBs."

    It HAS been a long time since I was in school, and unless we've changed to a non-base 10 system of counting, 16 (internal) + 16 (included MicroSD) = 32, and it is expandable.

    Am I missing something here?

    Interesting, but I'd almost bet that that refers to the micro SD card...

    Though I wouldn't complain if it does have 16GB built in plus the supportable 32GB micro...

    Yes, you are. Go to motorola's website (linked above) and click on tech specs. It says this:

    REMOVABLE MEMORY7
    16 GB microSD pre-installed; supports up to 32 GB microSD expandable

    Very confusing. Lets hope that Motorola had a typeo:rolleyes: and it does come with 16gb built in with an empty micro SD slot.

    It's a 16GB micro preinstalled not installed. It is disappointing to see them hiding these specs and also looks like they are hiding the fact that the screen is not multitouch. You cant really compete with the iphone when you lack multitouch. Baically ruins capabilities on a lot of stuff with games and neat apps. I thought android 2.0 was supposed to introduce native multitouch cpabilities. HTCs apps use multitouch but the processor is slow so the multitouch is pretty choppy albeit better than no multitouch at all....

    In the Android 2.0 SDK release notes, it says it supports multi-touch. On the GSM video, there was multi-touch. Where did you read otherwise?

    BGR said there was no multi-touch but it is in the GSM vid. I'll wait to accuse them of hiding something when I have seen the truth for myself.
