First images of the Motorola DROID X 2 "Daytona" appear
The Motorola DROID X 2 is currently carrying the codename "Daytona" and is expected to be styled similar to the current DROID X, but will have some improvements, including a 4.3" qHD display and 1GHZ dual-core Tegra processor (like on the DROID BIONIC), a redesigned camera button on the side, though the camera is still 8MP, and a built-in gyroscope for better gaming. As you can see in the leaked pictures of the DROID X 2 that came out today, the device looks almost the same as the original DROID X with the four physical buttons on the front, though notice that the software UI has been changed to match that of the DROID BIONIC, but no word yet on which version of Android it is running. There is also expected to be a lot of different Docks for the DROID X 2 when it's released.
As far as the Motorola DROID 3, even less is know, but it is expected to have an even better QWERTY keyboard, and also the 1GHZ dual-core Tegra processor.

wow the rumors weren't just the bionic specs...interested to see when this will release in comparison to the bionic. Might show some precursors for a 4G data charge? why else would anyone be persuaded to choose this over the bionic?

and where will this sit with the release date? I figured the bionic would be the droid x 2 and release around the same time the X came out

what?!?! only a 1ghz dual-processor? And you wait now to add a gyroscope?!? No front facing camera? OMG WTF!
- I'm just kidding by the way (kind of)
But seriously, what happend to that 2Ghz processor phone that the CEO of Motorola promised they'd have by the end of 2010 way back when the iPhone 4 was announced? It'll be March soon and there's still no sign.

He couldn't have been blatantly lying right? You know....to prevent people from buying the iPhone 4... I hope not. Maybe he meant by the end of 2012 and not 2010. Common mistake

"Amen to that" That's best you guys can do? How about actually replying to the content of my post instead of just crying. I take all this negativity as me being right because not one person gave an actual reply on Motorla and it's practices. Whether or not I was an ass, I was right then and now. This news came like 3 days after iPhone 4's announcement so I think that move was extremely desperate and sad. And if you guys (especially you Motorla users) dont really care, then you know who the real sheep are. if this was About Steve Jobs, everyone would have been flipping out. But since it's not then who cares! Nobody cares about Motorola anyway!

Right after comment 4 it should read ----Please insert lame comment below.
Just kidding (not)
Although it may seem like I'm being fanboyish (I know I brought it up pretty snobbishly), I'm just calling it as it is. A stunt like that shouldn't go ignored. Come on, the CEO flat out lied about a 2Ghz phone! That's big!
And for the record, my first comment was meant as a joke at first. I had things like "no 4.5 inch screen" and "no 5G!?!?" as part of the list too, but I got rid of that and added the "kind of" part right before posting.

What are people doing home on a saturday night bickering about phones for anyway. Kinda sad. Didn't use your phone to make any social plans lol?

What's even more sad is pretending to have such a social life outside of "bickering about phones on a saturday night" but being in the same forum at the same time.

i think the Droid 3 should be a go but a Droid X2 when there'll already be the BIONIC? i don't get it.

Yeah well, to be honest, I don't really need a front-facing camera. Plus, I like the DROID X's design better than the BIONIC's.
Also, All of the current Droid X accessories will probably work with the Droid X 2 unless minor changes need to be made. (I doubt that.)

I hope they keep that MotoBlur junk off it this time. That MotoBlur UI absolutely ruins anything that it touches.

Uh, I don't know if you people are really that blind. This is obviously a fake rumor, why would motorola produce a spec-for-spec reproduction of the Droid Bionic? The Droid Bionic TOO has a 1ghz dual core processor, 8 mp camera, and a 4.3 inch qHD display. So, I don't see how you all can miss that...

Halaluya!! Someone else is reading what I thought I was misreading. Low-and-behole, we both are reading the same specs on two "advanced" phones. WTF!! Is anyone reading into this stuff that the prices and advanced technology should also allow a phone on the tablets??? WTF!!! Hello .......am I alone in this thought ???

Um... the leaked pictures look a lot like the present Droid X. How do we know the pictures are of the Droid X2 (much less that there will be a Droid X2)? Alleged specs are sourced from who? And they have a source into Motorola how?
At this point, the only thing that seems to differentiate the X2 from the Bionic are the buttons and maybe the X2 not having 4G (although I highly doubt the X2 will not be equipped with 4G). Either the Bionic is a replacement for the X, or the X2 is going to have more to it than is being 'leaked'.

Looks like someone just took a Droid X, put a custom UI/ROM on it, and is trying to pass it off as the Droid X2.

Or, worse yet - did a photochop exercise....
18. icepikk (Posts: 32; Member since: 13 Feb 2011)
This is totally a custom rom or fake of some sort. Makes no sense to have the specs as they are AND for it to look EXACTLY the same.

Just a question . Couldn't this be Motorola Milestone X ? The equivalent of Droid X for GSM-based networks ?
26. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
the GSM variant would have the traditional MotoBlur interface and not the exclusive interface found on Verizon and Motorola's Droids.
