Verizon and Motorola officially unveiled the new Droid smartphone device on October 28th at an event in New York. The Droid should be available starting November 6 for $199 with a two-year contract. TechRepublic's Jason Hiner has written a first-hand review of the Droid, as has ZDNet's Andrew Nusca. CNET's News.com has published this report.
