Motorola XTREME and DROID 2 are two separate devices

This article contains unofficial information.
Motorola XTREME and DROID 2 are two separate devices
We recently showed you pictures of the Motorola XTREME (MB810). Now that the SHADOW name has apparently been stricken from the device, the next order of business is to prove that the XTREME and the DROID 2 (A955) are two different models. After all, you may have never seen them together at the same place and the same time. The picture of the DROID 2 below has the model number on the screen and looks different. It also is equipped with a QWERTY keyboard, quite possibly the one that we were able to present to you recently. Note how the A955 has some chrome on the front that is a departure from the looks of the original DROID. Remember, Big Red is expected to be launching 2 Android devices from Motorola next month and the XTREME and the DROID 2 appear close to hitting prime time.

Phonearena is typically slow.. most ppl pretty knew they are 2 different devices... ha @Oddmanout: we come cuz we visit several tech forums during work hours, best way to "beat the clock"

Well an article is an article and maybe there wasn't much else to talk about. And the DROID 2 seems kinda pointless. Sure its faster and has a new keyboard but is that it? The first one only came out a few months ago so to replace it with something not even that updated seems simply unnecessary but the EXTREME looks pretty awesome!

"A few months ago?" Try 9 months on July 17. That's 3 quarters of a year. The Storm 2 from Blackberry was released on a similar timetable in relation to the first Storm. They're keeping the DROID brand name up to date, and fixing the keyboard complaint people had about the first one.
