Best Buy replaces Motorola DROID 2 with the new Motorola DROID 2 Global
posted by Alan F. / Nov 02, 2010, 1:27 PM
As we earlier reported, the new handset will not only be equipped with CDMA/GSM connectivity for global roaming, under the hood will be a 1.2GHz chipset. The unit offers three profile options. Each profile, Home, Work and Weekends, has 7 home screens each.
Just to make it clear, Motorola has not discontinued the model. The decision to replace the DROID 2 with the DROID 2 Global at Best Buy is one made by the retailer itself. So if you have been thirsting for the old fashioned model, you can still find one somewhere-just not at Best Buy.
- Display 3.7" 480 x 854 pixels
- Camera 5 MP
- Processor TI OMAP3630, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 8 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1400 mAh
I think this was a great idea on behalf of my company. I work for Best Buy Mobile, and we don't have any Global capable phones in our line up for Verizon(since the Tour and Ozone have been discontinued)! So, I'll be happy to show my customer this device when we have it in stock.

the only bad thing about this phone is that has no global 3G :(

Take the time to educate yourself. The Droid 2 Global does have Global 3G. It has UMTS/HSDPA 7.2/HSUPA 2.0 operating on 2100MHz (which is Europe/Asia/Africa 3G). http://www.phonearena.com/phon

Folks, This appears to be very premature information. My local Best Buy mega-store, plus the actual Best Buy website listing for Motorla's Droid smartphones (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Motorola+-+DROID+2+Mobile+Phone+-+Dark+Sapphire+(Verizon+Wireless)/1178 045.p?skuId=1178045&id=1218230516650) do not corroborate this information. The current Droid 2 is still in stock and listed online!

kinda stupid if you ask me, considering that I was at Best Buy yesterday and they still sell the original Motorola Droid. Why keep a disco year old phone but get rid of a 3 month old phone? Plus, I think all of these "world phones" are over hyped. I for one couldn't care less that the phone works overseas. I wouldn't spend an extra $50 for essentially the same phone when I won't be leaving the US.
