TIME's Top 10 Lists for 2009: Droid is the #1 gadget

TIME has officially released their Top 10 Lists for 2009. The standout winner is the Motorola Droid, which was voted the number one gadget of the year. This is what TIME had to say about it...

"Everybody likes Android, Google's open-source smartphone operating system. But a smartphone operating system isn't all that satisfying without an actual kick-ass smartphone wrapped around it. Now Android has one: The Droid is a hefty beast, a metal behemoth without the gloss and finish of the iPhone, but you don't miss it. The Droid's touchscreen is phenomenally sharp and vivid, it has an actual physical (not great, but good enough) keyboard, and best of all, the Droid is on Verizon's best-of-breed 3G network. It's Android's first credible challenge to the iPhone."
