By Benedict Wee

Well that didn't take long. Just after Google's official confirmation of the Android 2.0 update, US telco Verizon has announced its two firsts; their first Android smartphone available on their network and the first phone internationally to use Google's newest mobile OS.

The Motorola Droid is a slide-out QWERTY keyboard mobile which runs on an ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz processor and comes with 3G& WiFi connections, a 5MP Camera with DVD-quality (720x480 pixels @24fps) video recording and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Its 3.7-inch screen has a high 854x480 (267ppi) resolution which displays crystal clear graphics that beat the iPhone 3GS' 163ppi.

The Droid goes on sale on November 6th and will retail for US$200/NZ$275 with a 2-year contract after a US$100/NZ$135 mail-in rebate.
