Motorola DROID 2 Global shows up in Verizon reps' training system

Motorola DROID 2 Global shows up in Verizon reps' training system
After Motorola introduced the BlackBerry-esque DROID Pro with its global reach, many were surprised. For a world tripping Android device, most had expected the Schaumburg based manufacturer to offer a refitted version of the DROID 2, with enough internal radios to handle global roaming, to be introduced as the DROID 2 Global. Now it seems that those who had written off such a model following the DROID Pro's introduction, might have been premature.

Found in the VZLearn employee training system, used by Big Red's reps to learn all about a handset online, is none other than the Motorola DROID 2 Global. The other day, some specs for the device were posted and quickly taken down on Verizon's site.

According to the information, the DROID 2 Global is your basic DROID 2 with a quad band antenna, a 1.2 GHz processor and a redesigned QWERTY keyboard. A 5MP camera is on the back with dual flash and AF. The device will ship with Android 2.2 aboard, offers support for Exchange and POP3/IMAP4 email, and accepts microSD cards for 32GB of added memory. Of course, with the phone removed from Motorola's site, we have no information on pricing or possible launch date.

We can assume though, that if the reps are now getting trained on the Motorola DROID 2 Global, a formal introduction followed by a launch cannot be too far away. And all that will be left to do is to make a big decision. Will you go for the 'Berry-esque portrait QWERTY keyboard equipped Motorola DROID Pro with its 3.1 inch screen, or will you go for the bigger 3.7 inch display and the landscape oriented QWERTY slider that will be found on the Motorola DROID 2 Global?

Redesigned qwerty keyboard? Are they referring as to being totally redesigned from Droid 2. Hope so, cause I didn't get the original Droid cause I hated the flat keyboard and had high expectations for Droid 2 but hated that keyboard too. Now I'm waiting on the HTC merge, that keyboard looks ..... perfect.

You have to love Verizon Wireless. They release the Droid 2, and then it becomes outdated with the Star Wars Edition Droid 2. Now here comes the Droid 2 Global.

To me what matters is having the same kind of bandwidth that the Motorola milestone(GSM Quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) UMTS dual-band European/Asian 3G (900/2100 MHz)),the keyboard is a nice upgrade to.
