Surfing the Net on most smartphones is tedious. But MOTOROLA's DROID ($300 with contract; verizonwireless.com) has the processing power and razor-sharp touchscreen for true Web useand in far more remote areas on Verizon's network than the city-bound iPhone on AT&T. You can scroll fluidly through maps, zoom in on hi-res satellite images, and breeze through complex Web sites. The keypad is flat and typo-prone, but the brilliant 3.7-inch display more than makes up for it.
