Verizon to offer first Gingerbread handset, the Motorola DROID T2?
Back last June, we reported that Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha had stated that his firm would deliver a 2GHz phone by the end of this year. Recently, it has been thought that Jha had meant to say that Motorola would deliver a phone with a Dual-Core processor by the end of 2010, using two 1GHz cores. With this in mind, the guys at Android and Me have come up with a scenario that would involve a holiday season launch of a device they call the Motorola DROID T2, that would feature such a processor design.

The DROID T2 would be the first handset using Android 2.5(Gingerbread) which brings us back to the launch of the original DROID last November. At that time, Google allowed Motorola and Verizon to be the first to market with an Android 2.0 handset. At the same time as being the first Gingerbread phone to market, the DROID T2 would be the first phone released using NVIDIA's Dual-Core Tegra 2 processor.

The device would have similar specs to the DROID X but would include a front-facing camera and offer 1080 video encode/decode. Android 2.5 could bring some new features to Google's open source OS while Android 3.0 could be reserved for use on tablets expected to be released in 2011. Motorola has a press conference scheduled for October 5th at the CTIA show, so keep your fingers crossed.
