Some leaked photos and specs of the Motorola DROID 2 World Edition have been released and they are certainly interesting at the least. Want to start with the ARM V7 processor with the dial turned all the way to 1.2GHz? Many of the other specs are familiar to those with the DROID X or DROID 2, such as the 3.7 inch screen with a resolution  of 480 x 854, a 5MP camera, the version of Blur that is on the DROID X and 2, and the same physical QWERTY from the DROID 2. We would expect the device to be launched with Android 2.2, which of course means Flash Player 10.1 would come pre-installed on the phone.

The new processor certainly helps with benchmark scoring as the Quadrant test came in at 1566 and 1709 during an encore. The DROID X with Froyo scored 1431 which shows you the nature of the Beast named Droid 2 World Edition. The Linpack score was 16.499. If you have a need for speed, you might want to seriously consider this your next handset. Unfortunately, no information on launch date and price have been discovered.

Quadrant scores do not tell us everything - linpack is important as well - I get 2300 with quadrant score when running voodoo lagfix and OC 1.2 ROM - without OC 1.2 I get around 1700 Quadrant.....what remixfa posts is typical for us galaxy S users :-)

i still havent OC'ed my vibrant.. just the lagfix in such. it doesnt need the OC at all, which is impressive. i still average 2250 on quadrant without it. :)
