Motorola DROID 2 Global will sport a 1.2 GHz chipset
The world edition of the Motorola DROID 2 is not far from being announced, it seems, since it appeared briefly on the Motorola website, before being pulled down. It will be a Froyo-laden dual-mode phone, with Verizon's frequencies, plus quad-band GSM, which makes it usable in over 200 countries that have the GSM standard. But that is something, which the HTC Lexikon, also for Verizon, will do as well.

What is interesting about the Motorola DROID 2 Global seems to be the chipset. The specs read 1.2GHz, and that will make it the fastest smartphone currently on the market. Texas Instrument's OMAP chipsets respond pretty favorably to overclocking, so Motorola enters the whole of fame here without much effort. Still, breaking the 1GHz barrier before the end of 2010 is an impressive feat.

On the specs front, the Motorola DROID 2 Global will sport a 3.7" display with 480x854 pixels, 5MP camera with dual-LED flash, capable of HD video at 24fps, and 8GB internal memory plus 8GB microSD card in the box. The 1420mAh battery is rated for about 7 hours of talk time. Well, it is not the 9+ hours of the original Motorola DROID 2, but for these 0.2 GHz more one has to make sacrifices.
