This is the Droid you've been looking for :)
Nice! We are joking about this sound effect in our office on Friday after hearing it on the GDGT podcast. Now I can't seem to think about the Motorola Droid without hearing this alert at the same time... Great unintentional branding!
I almost would switch to verizon just for this phone and those notifications, maybe they will port it to the G1 soon...
Threw this in as my Ubuntu startup sound.
robots > congo drums
So true, so very true, I may have to do that as well, the congos are nice but the droids are better.
Thanks for sharing this!
This will be my phone's new message tone, replacing "Location: Confirmed. Sending supplies." from Starfox 64.
Great ! Hope to find the original soundsample soon :)
Perfect for my incomming sms on my iPhone lol
I have to admit that the Metal Gear Solid ALERT is the best iPhone SMS tone EVER! Still startles me like every time =)
Just googled that alert, but that sound is TOOO hectic for me to use on my phone lol
I love the MGS alert sound, but I've got a lot of gamer friends who use that. When one person gets a text, the alert will sound off and four or five people will check their cell phones at the same time. It's tough finding a unique ringtone when all my friends are as geeky as I am, haha.
I use the beginning of the fanfare music that played during the propaganda reels during Starship Troopers. It's so loud and authoritative, not to mention hilarious.
Sounds like it came straight from The Downward Spiral.
I love it!
It sounds fantastic.
So this DROID sound is for every single notification? Email/SMS/incoming call?
When you buy this phone the DROID sound will even play automatically when someone rings your doorbell !
It's the default, but you can certainly change it.
I know I did... within the first 10 minutes :-)
Why am I laughing so hard at this?
Just put this on all of my alerts on my voyager! thanks:)
Im gonna dig up a Nokia 1100 and make this the default ringtone. The Droid tone coming from something that small.... ahhh the potential ^,^.
My new ringtone! Even though I don't have a Droid :)
Damn, still can't find the original Droid soundfile...
This is the sound I hear when someone sends me a message on Skype at work... so I don't miss the message when I'm... actually working.
... and now, to actually get a Droid.
My kids love it too. Two yr old walks around with this plastic walkie talkie saying "Droooiid."
I do love the tone. It reminds all of my iFriends that I have a better device on a better network. But I do miss the versatility of BB profiles....
