This hopefully will be the last time you hear about the Motorola Droid 2 until it’s released. For those of you who have been teetering towards snagging one, this is the news you have been waiting to here. Although you may have heard it many times before, this is the most concrete evidence to date concerning a release date.
After an internal Verizon slide showed that the carrier is launching Motorola Droid 2 on August 12, dummy units of the phone have already made its way to certain Best Buy stores. But no official announcement from Verizon yet. Verizon uses a ploy to slowly create a buzz about the device instead of announcing it outright. It did the same with Droid X and now doing it with Droid 2.
Droid 2 comes with an updated slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, Motoblur User Interface skin, and the same look and feel as the original Droid. The Droid 2 will come reportedly with a default Android 2.2 operating system. Besides, reports also suggest that Droid 2 will reportedly have a 3.7-inch screen with an OMAP 750Mhz processor.
It will also reportedly come with a 5-megapixels camera at the rear and will have 8GB of internal storage with memory expansion support. The device will also have HD video recording feature.
Droid 2 is said to become the first phone to have Android 2.2 as default operating system. HTC EVO 4G is the first carrier-provided phone in the U.S to receive the upgrade. Technically, Google Nexus one was the first to receive the Android 2.2 upgrade but it was directly marketed from Google and the phone is already on the way to be phased out.
