Droid? Does?

Verizon is running some ads on today's NFL games.  After listing a few "iDoesn't" items, some true and some requiring very creative application, viewers are pointed to the DroidDoes.com website.

Which provides no information, but offers a chance to sign up for Verizon Wireless emails.

Turns out this is advance work for Verizon's new phone based on the Google Android operating system.

The Samsung Instinct oops, nope Blackberry Storm oops, nope Palm Pre oops, nope Blackberry Storm 2  oops, nope Droid is expected to be an "iPhone Killer".

You can try the Google Android operating system on your Mac or PC.  Download it here and run it in VMWare Fusion, VMWare Workstation, VirtualBox, etc.
