Verizon Droid gets previewed; AT&T version spotted; Droid army predicted

By now we know that the Verizon Droid not only looks good, but has plenty of technical promise too, and BGR have followed up their preliminary hands-on with a more comprehensive preview of the Android smartphone.  The Motorola Droid gets praised for its "sharp, vibrant, bright and really, really responsive" 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen, while the keyboard may lack travel and feature closely-packed buttons but it's good enough for "efficient" typing and is better than the T-Mobile G1.  Meanwhile the charging dock/multimedia station (which you can see in a video demo after the cut) automatically turns the Droid into a weather station.

LG GW620 Eve QWERTY Android phone discovered

Some in-depth sleuthing of LG's website has thrown up details of an unannounced Android device from the company, the LG GW620.  Tipped to support UMTS/HSDPA and GPRS (though with no sign of which bands it supports), the GW620 also has a QWERTY keyboard and a half-VGA 320 x 480 display that we presume is a touchscreen.
