Free Motorola Droid Verizon

In honor of Verizon's big Droid event, I thought it'd only be appropriate to give away a free Droid phone here at Android Power. So we're handing out a commitment-free Motorola Droid handset courtesy of Verizon Wireless.

The Motorola Droid is a solid contender within Verizon's Android lineup. The phone, whose high-profile launch helped make Android a household name, stands out with its slide-out QWERTY keyboard and its unmodified Android software (no Motoblur on this bad boy). The Droid currently runs Android 2.1 and is expected to be among the first devices to receive Google's upcoming Android 2.2 upgrade.

Plus, since the phone is already free, you'll be under no obligation to sign a contract in order to start service; you can start and stop as you wish, when you wish.
