Best Buy replaces Motorola DROID 2 with the new Motorola DROID 2 Global

Out with the old, in with the new is the phrase over at Best Buy where the Motorola DROID 2 is being dismissed like last week's pot roast and is being replaced by the Motorola DROID 2 Global with its 1.2GHz processor...

I think this was a great idea on behalf of my company. I work for Best Buy Mobile, and we don't have any Global capable phones in our line up for Verizon(since the Tour and Ozone have been discontinued)! So, I'll be happy to show my customer this device when we have it in stock.

the only bad thing about this phone is that has no global 3G :(

Take the time to educate yourself. The Droid 2 Global does have Global 3G. It has UMTS/HSDPA 7.2/HSUPA 2.0 operating on 2100MHz (which is Europe/Asia/Africa 3G).

This appears to be very premature information. My local Best Buy mega-store, plus the actual Best Buy website listing for Motorla's Droid smartphones (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Motorola+-+DROID+2+Mobile+Phone+-+Dark+Sapphire+(Verizon+Wireless)/1178 045.p?skuId=1178045&id=1218230516650) do not corroborate this information. The current Droid 2 is still in stock and listed online!

kinda stupid if you ask me, considering that I was at Best Buy yesterday and they still sell the original Motorola Droid. Why keep a disco year old phone but get rid of a 3 month old phone? Plus, I think all of these "world phones" are over hyped. I for one couldn't care less that the phone works overseas. I wouldn't spend an extra $50 for essentially the same phone when I won't be leaving the US.
