Motorola Droid: details and specs emerge

Motorola have certainly been a bit cocky about their forthcoming ‘iPhone-killing’ Droid smartphone, although details of what tech goodies lurk within have been very scarce.

There’s a 5 megapixel camera with 4x zoom, autofocus, and dual LED flash onboard, with the handset packing a pre-installed 16GB microSD card.

A 1400 mAh Li-ion battery promises up to 385 minutes of usage time and 270 hours standby, and the slider phone will measure up at 2.4 x 4.6 x 0.5-inch and weigh six ounces.

There’s still no news about the all-important price or availability, but we have to say that we’re not exactly being blown away by this bad boy’s looks.
