See this article which says how the Droid WON'T save Motorola.

http://money.cnn.com/2009/11/05/markets/thebuzz/index.htm?postversion=2009110514#TOP

I have checked the specs and it seems Motorola is competing under the same conditions of iPhone and other smartphones.  Like Skype for Android 2.0 but you cannot use it on WiFi, only by paying the service provider!  This proves the Droid is designed to make service providers money, not entirely for the end user.  They make a phone with cool features to entice the consumer to use them which then pings you in the pocket!  I think I just want a mobile phone that is a PHONE and do everything else from my laptop.

If Motorola is to compete they have to offer something REALLY different other than another interface to access the same stuff as other smartphones.
