      05/04/10 02:08 PM

We already know that Verizon thinks "in the world that doesn't, Droid does!" and now Droid can help you with your Mother's Day planning. Here are a few things you can use your Droid for:

Mom can have the perfect Mother's Day on Sunday, even if you wait until the last minute for gift ideas. With the reach and reliability of Verizon Wireless? 3G network, customers have gift giving options on their 3G Smartphones and 3G Multimedia phones to help make mom?s day even more special:


* Why send flowers that wilt away? Give mom a gift that won?t fade with Flowerful, available for $1.00 on DROID devices from Android Market. This app features beautiful flowers of all shapes, colors and sizes. If mom prefers Palm smartphones, treat her to exotic floral displays with Orchids and tropical flowers wallpaper. Available in the Palm App Catalog, this free app gives her more than five dozen different blooms to enjoy!

Pamper Her

* For a taste of gourmet delights, OpenTable allows you to make on-the-go reservations for Mother?s Day dinner. Book a table at one of over 10,000 restaurants using the free app on many smartphones. After a delicious meal, mom might need a break, so check out the free Beauty Care Services app in Android Market to find local salons and spas to help mom refresh.

Make Mom Breakfast

* Make mom a home cooked meal in no time with expert support. Palm customers can turn to Essential Cooking Calculators available for $3.99 to save time and eliminate guesswork in the kitchen. Android Market offers quick tips and guides with Cook?s Cheat Sheet for $1.00.

Write A Song

* What could make mom happier than a special song composed by you? Available on Palm devices, Pitch Pipe ($1.00) and Guitarist?s Reference Pro & Guitar Tuner ($2.99) keep you in tune. For those lacking musical talent, help mom download her very own radio station based on her favorite songs and musicians. Free apps such as Pandora Radio or Slacker Radio from Android Market and AccuRadio from the Palm App Catalog let mom play DJ on a station that?s just her taste.

Simple Things To Make Mom Smile

* Make mom a unique ringtone with MyToneStudio. For $3.99 monthly subscription you can record your own tones and messages for mom to hear every time the phone rings. A quick picture of the family can become mom?s perfect phone background with Wallpaper Maker. For a $2.99 monthly subscription fee, you can enhance mom?s favorite family portrait with text, effects, frames and more to create a wallpaper that?s straight from the heart. Even the creatively-challenged can send mom the perfect message with I Love You Mom Wallpaper for $1.99. These offerings can be found in the Media Center/Get It Now? on 3G Multimedia phones.

Donate Your Phone To Honor Mom And Help Those Mothers You?ve Never Met

* Give two women a special gift this Mother?s Day with one simple act ? donating an old phone to HopeLine. Proceeds generated from the phones collected by HopeLine are used to provide wireless phones to survivors of domestic violence or cash grants to local shelters and non-profit organizations that focus on domestic violence prevention and awareness efforts.
