August 12th said to be DROID 2 launch date
A leaked screen shot from what apparently is an internal Best Buy communication, shows a "hard street date" launch of the Motorola DROID 2 for August 12th. If you're a Verizon customer and have your sights set on the DROID 2, it looks like you have less than a week to get prepared. Although no pricing information has been released, most high-end phones have been tagged lately with a subsidized price of $199.99. Verizon has yet to introduce the phone, though, so we should expect to see some word from Big Red this week.

Also leaked is a chart produced by Verizon that shows the DROID 2 compared to its predecessor, the Droid Incredible, the DROID X and the LG Ally. Some subtle differences between the DROID 2 and the DROID can be discovered by looking at the comparison. For example, the Blockbuster On-Demand app that is on the DROID X will also be on the DROID 2 at launch. The swipe to type Swype keyboard will be on-board for the sequel at launch. We have already touched on some of the more obvious differences between the two phones.

Sucks if you bought the Gen.1 Droid and you can't return it...

To be honest, I understand what you are saying but if you really care about having the newest best phone then it's your own fault if you don't do proper research before buying. I've known about this phone coming out for probably two months...

Its too hard in this world of 2yr. contracts to keep up with each new device that comes out. I would say buy what you like now and be comforted by the fact that when it comes time for you to upgrade that there will be 10x better options out there for you to choose from.

If you bought a phone you can return it under 30 days. I would suggest anyone to do this and get the droid 2.
