After a series of teaser ads that attack Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL)'s iPhone, Verizon Wireless and Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) officially unveiled Wednesday the Droid smartphone.

The Droid is the first product to spring forth from Verizon's partnership with Google (Nasdaq: GOOG), and the device appears to be a compelling alternative to Apple's touchscreen handset.
