Verizon Motorola Droid 2 video preview shows up

By now, we all know that Verizon will launch two new Droid smartphones from Motorola: the Droid X and the Droid 2. Only the Droid X has been officially confirmed by the largest US carrier, but the Droid 2 is on its way, too.

The first video preview of the Droid 2 has appeared over at Android and Me, showing the new smartphone next to the first Droid.

When closed, the handsets don’t look too different, although the Droid 2 has more rounded edges and slightly redesigned buttons.

The QWERTY keyboard of the new Droid seems to be better – it has no d-pad and its keys are larger. Also, the processor is a 1GHz one, and it looks like there’s 512MB of RAM on board. All in all, the Droid 2 should be faster and more user-friendly than the first one.

The video’s just below:

The Motorola Droid X will most likely be unveiled on June 23 (this Wednesday), so maybe we’ll also hear more about the Droid 2 then, which is expected to be available at Verizon starting August (possibly with Android 2.2 Froyo on board).
