DROID 2 ad focuses on upgraded QWERTY keyboard and faster processor
Verizon did not put as much hype into yesterday's launch of the Motorola DROID 2 as the carrier did with the first-gen DROID and the DROID X. The television ad below, while still relying on some computer graphics, focuses more on the improvements that Motorola has made on the sequel unit. For example, the upgraded QWERTY keyboard makes an appearance in the spot. You can even hear the clickety-clack of  letters being pressed on a keyboard that looks to be so improved, the owner of the phone can knock out a fairly long e-mail without a problem.

The other major improvement that was made to the DROID 2 replaced the processor on the original unit with a 1GHz CPU. Of course, this debut ad for the DROID 2 makes note of that fact and mentions how zippy the new phone is. So zippy that e-mail can be checked, blueprints examined and a response banged out and sent all before anyone else at this meeting even notices anything strange about this guy.

Cool, but should have been bigger with a front facing camera...doesn't stand out like the other Android devices out right now.

No. If you want a bigger phone then get the Droid X. Motorola is creating a bit of variety here. Not everyone wants a huge phone with a huge screen. But if you do, there are other phones on Verizon with that. Problem solved. And people need to stop complaining about a front facing camera. Relax. There will be a phone on Verizon with one soon enough. Stop complaining.

Research released by the Nielsen Co. indicates the Android operating system has moved past the iPhone platform. The report states that Android now represents 27 percent of new smartphone purchases in the United States, ahead of 23 percent for the iPhone. Blackberry devices account for 33 percent of new smartphone purchases. (The numbers are for the second quarter.) These latest figures back up a similar finding by NPD earlier this year that Android device sales have eclipsed those of iPhone.
