Verizon’s Motorola Droid 2 shows up again, will “probably” come with Android 2.2 Froyo
While the Motorola Droid X has been confirmed yesterday by Verizon, there’s still no official word on the Droid 2 (A955), which will be the true successor of the first Motorola Droid.
Even so, it looks like the Motorola Droid 2 was showcased by Verizon during a tech show held at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Gizmodo received some photos of the Droid 2, together with new details.
Reportedly, the new Droid has the same size as the original one. Its QWERTY keyboard is wider, though, and it’s “easier to type on.”
At this time, the Motorola Droid 2 runs Android 2.1 with “Ninjablur” (like the Droid X). However, a Verizon rep said that the smartphone would “probably” have plain Android 2.2 Froyo at launch. Or, in case it’s launched with Android 2.1, an update will be released shortly after.
It seems that the Droid 2 has a 1GHz processor, and 8GB of internal memory. The handset could be released “in the next few weeks.” – hence we might see it as the same time with the Droid X.
