NEW YORK (AP) - Verizon hopes that it has an iPhone killer.
Verizon Wireless' answer to the iPhone is the Motorola Droid and it goes on sale Nov. 6. The after-rebate cost is $200 with a two-year contract. Verizon revealed details yesterday after an ad blitz.
Verizon touts features that Apple's phone lacks, such as a physical keyboard and the ability to run several applications at once. The Droid won't be iPhone's first challenger. Sprint Nextel has been
pushing the Samsung Instinct and Palm's Pre. Verizon also has been selling the touch-screen BlackBerry Storm, but it hasn't been a huge hit.
