Like many smartphones before it, the Droid has been rooted so that owners of the Android 2.0-based smartphone can install multitouch support (including pinch-to-zoom gestures), enhanced themes and other previously forbidden goodies."

Too bad the device itself isn't all that great (in my opinion, of course). I found it to be dog slow compared to both the iPhone 3Gs and the Droid, the latter of which I have.

Also, they're not very reliable, in the experience of my friends at least. One of them is already on their 5th(!) Pre.

He's now moving to the Droid.

A co-worker has the N900. Really, really nice, and I'd say I like it better than the Droid. But the $600 on the phone is a tough pill to swallow. Subsidizing it makes it more manageable.
