Motorola Droid 2: Business Friendly Features

The harsh reality is smartphone software and the applications built to run on them are progressing at such a frenetic clip that what looked great nine months ago seems passé. Case in point: Last November, Android 2.0 on the Droid was the belle of the ball, with Google Maps Navigation luring users with free turn-by-turn GPS directions.

The Droid 2, which launched on Verizon Wireless Aug. 12 for $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate, sports the much faster Android 2.2 and two new tools that augment the user experience. These include Google Voice Actions for Android and Google Chrome to Phone. Among the other Droid 2 improvements are:

  • A battery that’s among the best available in the Droid line
  • A 1GHz chip to support fast Webkit browsing
  • Microsoft Exchange support with remote wipe, providing some enterprise management capability for IT administrators
  • 3G Mobile Hotspot capability to let business users connect up to five WiFi-enabled devices for $20 extra per month.

Here are 9 CIO-worthy Droid apps you’ll want to consider.
