Motorola busts back onto the scene with their newest phone, featuring noteworthy improvements and using an open source operating system called Android 2.0. But how does it fare in the era of the iPhone?

The phone itself has a 5 megapixel camera, versus iPhone’s 3 megapixels, and offers users a lot more control over camera settings like white balance and focal length. The video camera offers shake-free recordings and crystal clear audio.

It’s alliance with Google allows for conveniences like the automatic import of your Facebook and free access to Google-powered Maps. Besides a physical keyboard, the device is, overall, similar to iPhone 3GS– but hot ticket is the potential of the new operating system.

The real buzz surrounding the DROID phone is that it should allow for more applications and creative functionality changes that just aren’t possible with the iPhone (Apple’s OS is completely locks out developers). Android 2.0 is part of a series that will allow for more possibilities in the future.

Engadget.com provides a glowing review that breaks down the new device to the nitty gritty.
