Motorola DROID 2 gets shuttered for the first official time
Usually, the baby is born before you start taking pictures. In the cellphone world, things are done differently, of course, and we have the first official pictures of a phone that has not even been introduced. What you are looking at is the Motorola DROID 2 which was carefully hidden on the DROIDDOES web site inside a Shockwave Flash file. As we've noted before, the DROID 2 has a chrome bezel that wraps around the front of the device and the whole handset is a bit more rounded than the original DROID. August 23rd has been speculated to be the date of launch, just enough time that perhaps the phone will be equipped with Android 2.2 out of the box. The sequel to the Time Magazine Gadget of 2009 could be priced at around the $199.99 that other high-end Android models have been bar-coded at recently.

Is it 4g...does it have a front facing camera like the Evo? Until further notice, the best Android phone "available right now" is still the Evo.

That slide out keyboard makes this phone a fatty! No thanks! I'll keep my eye on a Droid X when upgrade time comes in a couple months. That is, if nothing else is out to best it by then ;)

Yea too bad its slimmest phone with a qwerty keyboard. Ya know phones with slide out keyboards can't be as slim as a needle.

Yeah this phone may not be the thinnest but its probably easier to fit in you pocket than the Droid X. I wish this phone didn't have the big chin still tho! But i still like it.

That's the thing i love about android. There's a phone for everyone. One with a large screen, one with an average screen, one with a small screen, and one with a keyboard.

Yeah i looked at the pics! Well idk if it'd be called a chin but it still has that big... idk what you'd call it then... Chunk at the bottom.

The motorola droid is hardly thicker than the iphone 3gs. The droid had a qwerty while the iphone does not. So i give moto much credit.

+1 @Wildturkey. HA HA HA! What a sense of humor youve got there! Still, I think there may be hope for the KIN2. With thre internal hardware its packin, it pay be a decent device if someone could develop a way to load WP7 onto it.

And people are still buying iPhones? Probably because they are ignorant, misinformed iSheep!

Are you suggesting the iPhone is not superior to this phone? The iPhone was carefully designed to ensure you hold it in the most ergonomical manner or it won't work. People assume this was a flaw, but Mr. Jobs was just trying to help reduce phone related injuries.

+1 BlackberryUser. Lord Steve Jobs is indeed a saint. He has delivered us from a darkened pre-iPhone world and you are right, HE is singlehandedly preventing cell phone related injuries! (that was all sarcasm, of course).

its funny that most of you are just commenting on what it looks like and not what it does. and then you front facing camera people, cool concept, but who really uses it right now? and go ahead and keep paying that extra $10 for that 4g service you don't get in your area. what a smart little consumer u are...sigh*

I did not loko for a phone with camera flash and front facing cam in mind, that is why I purchased the SAMSUNG CAPTIVATE - simply an awesome phone.

the 10 dollars is only with the EVO 4G which honestly, with all the ads and hype, doesn't have much appeal to me anymore. All the other front facing camera phones don't cost a cent more and you can skype with family and friends from abroad. As for the droid 2, its just an improved keyboard with android 2.2 which isn't really necessary for a new model since so many people bought it already. they just could have had a minor recall (have you send in your droid on a specific date based on your model number) or something if some customers really hated their keyboard
