The Motorola Droid won’t make anyone forget about the iPhone, but the new device generally has received high marks after its first weekend on sale. Motorola Inc. launched the Droid on Friday in an exclusive deal with Verizon Wireless, which is heavily promoting the device for the holiday shopping season. Although long lines did not form at Verizon stores, analysts say the Droid appeared to be selling well.
