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.
