It still runs Android 2.1, totes a 5MP camera, but has an upgraded physical QWERTY keyboard; it's the sequel to the Motorola DROID...

I understand why motorola wants motoblur on their phones, like htc with sense. Hopefully they have made the right improvements. I think they have based on the droid x video I saw, so before you go on your rants about how much you hate motoblur, give it a chance with the new version.

Definitely feeling the new keyboard. Looks promising. Love my moto Droid but the keypad is a bit too small and cramped and the flush keyboard sometimes give me typos when not looking. No offense to current Droid owners who are in love with it. Its an awesome phone but as an avid texter (for lack of a better word), keyboard design is a deal breaker imho.

No suprise here, just a good bet on how long it takes until somebody gets canned over this "leak".

I believe this is what motorola wanted the first droid to be, but they had to rush it. Keyboard looks much better, no more empty spaces on each side. I will miss the d-pad for gaming purposes but other than that it was useless. I also like how the edges look more smooth and rounded, you can literally use the edge of the droid to face your face, like a razor. lol jk Anyway I believe this is a very smart move on both motorola and verizon. If someone wants a thin, huge screen phone. They can get the droid x. If they want a smaller screen with a keyboard, they can get the droid 2.

i totally agree. this is what the droid 1 should have looked like. i need a change though, i'm getting the droid x.

Honestly I'm really not a fan of the new Droid... I kinda like the look of the first one. But I do agree, I'm getting the Droid X :) I've been thinking about keeping my Droid active and just using the wireless tethering on it to use the X as a tablet basically, I don't know if I can stand to lose my keyboard for texting... I guess i'll find out.

I want the Droid Xtreme, but I hope there is a way to disable motoblur. Not into that. Was going to get the Evo 4g, but I can't deal with the battery problems that the Evo 4g and Incredible are having. Hopefully the new Motorola Droids will have better battery life, the first Motorola Droid seems to get decent battery usage.

Hopefully stores will have these side by side on display, for me it's a matter of how easy it would be to text with the X versus the Droid 2. Both seem to be totally stellar phones, so it'll definitely be a tough decision. Can't Wait!!

I think it has been posted here or somewhere else that the X will have 720 HD video recording with an HDMI port but the 2 does not or needs an adapter or something. Can anyone confirm this? If it is true it would make me lean to the X but I would like a keyboard

With a screen that large, a keyboard really isn't needed. Have you seen how large the on screen keyboard is? From the video it looks very responsive.

I just like the ability to type without looking (using the physical keyboard) that's the only thing I think i'll miss...
