Google is Pushing Droid on its Homepage
The “learn more” link leads to a page on Google headed “Search on Droid by Motorola.” The page includes photos of the Droid, a bit of text highlighting voice search, the quick search box and Google’s new turn-by-turn navigation. There’s also a blue box with a couple of links off to Verizon.
These blue-box links might be slightly controversial to some; those of us familiar with these kinds of pages on Google expect those links to lead to other Google.com pages. I found it a bit jarring when I saw that I was heading to the dark, dark land of Verizon.
Edit: I forgot to mention Bert and Ernie. Details are hazy, but apparently Bert and Ernie are either fans or paid endorsers of the Droid. (The previous sentence is not true.)
