Motorola Droid versus HTC Touch Pro 2 for Verizon Wireless:
- Droid has much faster web browser than Touch Pro 2
- Droid has a much better application store (though you pay for each app)
- Droid has a slightly better camera, and has a flash, which Touch Pro does not
- Droid is slightly smaller and weighs slightly less than the Touch Pro 2
- Droid's touch screen is definitely more responsive than the HTC
- The resolution/picture quality is equal on the two devices
- I already found some bugs in the Droid , had problems getting Exchange calendar working and there are a few other complaints floating around about Droid Bugs.
- HTC Touch Pro 2 has a way better physical keyboard than the droid. There is no comparison on just how much better the HTC's physical keyboard is than the droids.
- Exchange integration is better in the HTC Touch Pro 2, for instance, in Droid, if you get a calendar request, you can only accept it or deny it from the calendar, where with HTC you can accept right from the email.
- Touch Pro 2 is a world phone, Droid is USA CDMA only
- From a business perspective, I think the HTC Touch Pro 2 has a better home/navigation system with displaying calendars/contacts/weather/etc.
- Droid does not allow you to set up signatures in emails, like "sent from my mobile phone" unless you are running Exchange Server 2007 with server side support
- Droid requires you use gmail or at least have a gmail account to access some of its features (HTC does not)
- Droid does not support Excel XLS and Adobe PDF natively, you have to purchase a seperate app (cheap) for them.
Although I like both devices, I would currently say that the HTC Touch Pro 2 has the edge as a business device. The Droid has an edge on the consumer front.
I may come back and add more thoughts about the HTC Touch Pro 2 vs. the Motorola Droid later on.
