For the last couple of months, the Motorola Droid has ruled the roost -- even being called "the best Android-powered phone to date" in our very own review. Well, the Droid's uncontested reign may be getting cut short as the recently introduced Google Nexus One battles for the Android throne.
Introducing a number of new features to the Android platform, the Nexus One is the first phone to be running Android OS version 2.1. Rumor has it, though, that the Motorola Droid will be joining the party with its own Android 2.1 update sometime later this month.
In addition to its new and improved software, the Nexus One boasts a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has twice the RAM of the already powerful Motorola Droid. While the extra processing power and RAM may not be readily noticeable in the day-to-day tasks of checking email or sending text message, heavy multitaskers and gamers may be drawn to the Nexus One.
Now that you know some of the facts, just how do two of the hottest Android phones on the market stack up against each other? We aim to answer this very question with a Wirefly Cell Phone Schmack Down video (at right), and of course provide a handy comparison chart to make the job of choosing between these two phones a tad bit easier.
