The Droid is arriving on Verizon’s network on November 6, 2009.  This will be the first phone running the Google Android 2.0 operating system. This device is much anticipated if for no other reason than their viral video that directly poked fun at the iPhone.

What features will the Droid include?

  • Exchange support
  • Ability to set up multiple accounts (i.e., Gmail and Exchange)
  • Voice-activated search powered by Google
  • GPS navigation service bundled in for free with the data plan
  • Turn-by-turn navigation with spoken directions
  • Ability to manually sync unprotected iTunes music or other MP3s

Navigation-related features seem to be big for the Droid.  Here’s a full overview.

What about PC sync?

With Exchange support, you don’t need any other software to sync your Exchange data to your phone.  If you use Outlook without an Exchange server, you will need CompanionLink to sync your Outlook contacts and calendar to your Google account, which then automatically syncs with the Droid’s address book and calendar.

If you’re using any other contact managers like ACT!, GoldMine, Lotus Notes, GroupWise, or Palm Desktop, you can use CompanionLink to sync them with your Google account as well.

CompanionLink is also working on a way to do a direct USB sync between your PC and the Droid.

Update 12/21/2009: This direct USB sync solution is now available here.
