The expected comeback of Motorola will begin next year, when more than 20 mobile phone models could be released. One of the interesting models that we have information is the Droid one, a model that could battle with iPhone, Xperia, N97 or other successful known models.

As the name mention, phone will come with Google Android and with  little help from Verizon, the smartphone market will adopt a new model.

Construction is nice, solid(plastic+metal) and the phone weights 165 grams which is pretty normal since it supports a very comfortable QWERTY keyboard and a big 3.7-inch touchscreen.
