More pictures and news about the Motorola DROID 2
A gentleman named Zack, who works at the Jet Propulsion Lab as a summer intern, recently attended a tech show at the lab and found himself holding what he recognized to be the DROID 2. As an owner of the first-gen DROID (this might be the first time you've read those words together in print), Zack knows the handset and he noticed that while some of the hardware was the same as his phone, this new handset was smoother with more curves. Based on a letter he wrote to Gizmodo about the device, it appears that the sequel to Time Magazine's 2009 Gadget of The Year (forgot about that, huh?), will still have a 5MP camera although it did run faster than the shooter on the original model. The soft-keys at the bottom of the phone were in a different order and were touch-sensitive. The keyboard is very different as it is wider, a voice control button is at the lower left of the QWERTY and the gold directional pad is gone and replaced by four arrows-similar to what you would see on a computer. Although this particular handset was running Android 2.1 with NinjaBlur or some type of new Motorola UI on top, a Motorola rep said that the sequel would be launched with Froyo without anything on top of it. If for some reason it were to launch with Android 2.1, an upgrade would be made available quickly. The rep also said that the name of the handset had not yet been decided on and that it would be released in the next few weeks. Oh yes, the processor is running at 1GHz. Between the DROID X and the DROID 2 (if that is indeed the phone's name), Verizon customers are going to have a tough decision to make shortly.
