For those Android fans that prefer a physical keyboard over a virtual one, you have two new options available to you.  The Motorola DROID 3, which is available now for $199 at Verizon, offers a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera, front-facing shooter, a SIM card slot for global roaming capabilities, and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with Motorola's custom user interface.  The T-Mobile (HTC) myTouch 4G Slide is an evolutionary bump for the myTouch line and offers a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, 3.7-inch Super LCD, 8-megapixel camera, front-facing camera, and Android 2.3 with a myTouch build of HTC Sense 3.0.

They're both feature-packed phones that offer good physical QWERTY keyboards, but only one can come out on the top.  Which one of these smartphones will take home the gold medal in the dogfight?  Part 1 of 2.

Axel Jaramillo Droid 3 every time. Motorola is starting to get things right with the well built phone and their new application system. One thing i would change though is the chrome finish i would go back to the original black to prevent the chipping.
Alexander Sharp
Alexander Sharp iPhones are All right but I would rather have a droid. Except I live in Canada so... I can't use Verizon

John Zanatta
John Zanatta @Sean Reece- don't you mean HTC should make a slider for Verizon? This should be a good fight. I'm pulling for the mT4gS.
Anthony Douglas
Anthony Douglas All we need now is for carriers to stop putting data caps on their plans, we need someone to make a FB page disliking data caps. How can you use any device to its fullness with a data cap? Oh wait you can always sit at home or Starbucks & use wifi my bad. Thank you Sprint for not putting data caps on your plans or slowing down the speed once you go over your tier!!!
Susie Tracey
Susie Tracey I'd prefer the myTouch based solely on the fact that it's GSM.... but if you were to give me one or the other you won't hear me complaining. :)

Jordan Williams
Jordan Williams truth be told, i've played with the Droid 3, and even though I'm a tmo customer, HTC better have some tricks in the MT4gS or else...
Doug Phillips
Doug Phillips Why compare phones from different carriers? I have Verizon and there is nothing that can be said that would make me want to end my contract early and pay x amount of dollars just so I can go to another carrier for one of the phones they offer. Doesn't make much sense to me.
Foo Joon Sunn
Foo Joon Sunn ironically none of the phones can be rooted yet.
