DROID

Okay so we know that everyone was holding off buying their DROID until they were absolutely certain it would be compatible with their favorite online news website, Gambling911.com.  You were all waiting for us to run out and purchase one first.  We are thrilled to announce that - after buying a DROID - Gambling911.com comes up GREAT on the new phone powered by Google and Verizon.

Oh and we finally figured out why Big Bird was all over Google's page the last two days. 

"We're delighted to have partnered with Sesame Street to create this special series of doodles, particularly since we share the same values of education, diversity, and accessibility," Google Vice President Marissa Mayer said in a blog posting on Friday.

Our crack techie, Flash Calahan, loves the new DROID and can't put it down.  He was able to get the Gambling911.com website to come up....IN A FLASH. 

"Because Gambling911.com switched to a data base powered platform last year some of the older smart phones load the site slowly," said Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of Gambling911.com. 

The new generation of mobile Internet-based phones are vital for Gambling911.com's growth as more people access the website from the road and, more importantly, from major sporting events.

"The last Super Bowl and Kentucky Derby, traditionally our biggest betting events, it was observed that people continued to access the Gambling911.com website throughout these events to find half time odds and results of payouts for other prop-related events," O'Brien points out.  "In the past, viewers watching the Super Bowl or Derby from friends homes, bars or the actual stadium, race track, would have no way to access the Net during the event.  Traffic would slow an hour before."

Gambling911.com is working to ensure its mobile compatibilities are up to par worldwide in preparation for the 2010 World Cup.

The Motorola Droid is an Android-based smartphone by Motorola to be initially distributed by Verizon Wireless in the United States. Features of the phone include Wi-Fi networking, a 5-megapixel low light capable digital camera, a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, interchangable battery, 3.7-inch 854 x 480 touchscreen, MicroSDHC support with bundled 16GB card,  turn-by-turn Google Maps navigation, QWERTY keyboard, and Texas Instruments OMAP 3430 processor. The Motorola Droid runs version 2.0, codenamed Eclair, of Google's Android operating system.  The phone does not, however, run the re-branded MOTOBLUR version of Android, instead providing the Google Experience skin and application stack.
