Motorola Droid 2 video, specs. Droid Shadow / Xtreme might be called Droid X

One of Verizon’s upcoming high-end Android phones, the Motorola Droid 2, has been fully unveiled in new photos and a video, which confirm the fact that the handset features a sliding QWERTY keyboard – just like the first Motorola Droid.

The keyboard of the Droid 2 doesn’t include a directional pad (which is probably a good thing) and looks more user-friendly than the one of the first Moto Droid.

The Droid 2 will run Android 2.1 (or maybe Android 2.2, it depends on when it’s launched) and use a new MotoBlur UI, which, reportedly, is not as intrusive as the versions seen on the Devour or the BlackFlip.

DroidLife (the source of the new photos) also has a list of specs for the Motorola Droid 2:

  • 3.7 inch touchscreen display
  • Wi-Fi (with tethering)
  • 5MP autofocus camera with flash
  • 750MHz TI OMAP processor
  • 8GB of internal memory
  • 8GB MicroSD card preinstalled

The Droid 2 doesn’t have a front-facing camera, so it’s not included in that list of up to 4 Motorola phones that will be launched this year with video-calling.

A short video showing the Droid 2’s booting screen can be watched below:

As for Verizon’s other upcoming Droid – the Motorola Droid Shadow / Xtreme – this might be called Droid X in the end.

Both the Droid 2 and Droid Shadow / Xtreme / X could be launched by Verizon in July. They don’t have 2GHz processors, that’s  for sure, but it looks like they’ll be quite awesome anyway.

    The Droid 2 isn't much better than the Droid 1. I think I'll stick with the Xtreme/Shadow or whatever it's going to be called.

    what do you mean only 5? standard pictures are only 3-4 mp. 5 is perfect. 8 or 10 or 12 20 or 10000 mp makes no difference unless you're blowing up a huge picture.

    Yes it bloody does, just look at the Nokia, explains it all. I suppose you guys across the pond (assuming you are from the US) are pretty slow with the MPxs.
