DROID 2 User Guide is leaked

DROID 2 User Guide is leaked
While the Motorola DROID 2 is not expected to be released to the public until mid to late August, the User Guide for the phone has been leaked. So what have we learned from looking through it? Well, we can now raise our confidence level to Fire Truck Red that the sequel to Time Magazine's 2009 Gadget of the Year will be shipped out with Android 2.2 in the box as the Froyo version of Google search is written up in the guide.The booklet also delves into the Motoblur UI that appears on the unit-it's the same "lite" version that is on the DROID X. The virtual QWERTY keyboard will be multi-touch as the one on the DROID X is and the DROID 2 will offer the swipe to type Swype keyboard. To view the entire User Guide, click here.

With the DROID X shoving its massive screen right into your face, the DROID 2 could be a hard sell for Verizon-especially if it is priced at the same gold standard of $199.99 after a 2 year contract that most high-end models have been priced at lately. For the same price, you could have the 4.3 inch display of the "X" staring right back at you. Sure, it will appeal to those who want a DROID and need a physical QWERTY (upgraded from the first-gen model, by the way), but there still is the Samsung Fascinate to consider. Big Red's variant of the Galaxy S will probably be the carrier's next big launch after the DROID 2. We obviously are looking too far ahead. After all, Verizon has not even introduced the DROID 2 yet.

With it having the swype application - a keyboard is not even needed anymore. I have the droid X and with the swype function my view point of all touch screens have changed. It is such a nice application to have. I do think the Droid 2 is a nice upgrade to the Droid. GO VZW and MOTO! FTW

Yeah I suppose it could/does in some applications. I used to not know either, also thinking it was 'F&%k related, and I always wondered why people used it in the context they did. Then it hit me one day... So glad to see other people didn't know at first either. Oh, by the way, Droid X FTW!!!

Not all the leaks are done without a purpose, so either live with the hype believing you got the "insider story", or treat it like a regular news that the vendor wants to get attention from consumers.

Most leaks nowadays are 75% from company(carrier) intentional release. 25% goes for company worker release, sell off news for money. anyhow, with so much leak nowadays, we have not seen lawsuit on sites like this, posting leaks. PLUS. PhoneArena only "Re-Post" leech from other sites. I hardly seen PhoneArena post their Personal Own researches.
