Not a day passes by when we hear of yet another Android superphone being launched somewhere in the world. After the Samsung Galaxy S and the Motorola Droid X, it is now the Motorola Droid 2 that has reared its head somewhere in the US. Expected to be announced as early as this week and a possible launch in August (probably later this year in India as the Milestone 2), the Droid 2 looks exactly like the first Droid with minor design tweaks and some significant bump in hardware specs.
The folks at Android and Me have done a good job at comparing the two models. In a nutshell, here’s what the Droid 2 is all about:
The Droid 2 has a curved bezel with a metallic chrome finish. The keyboard has been revamped with arrow keys instead of the D-pad and the keys are slightly raised when compared to the Droid. It now runs on a TI OMAP 3630 1GHz processor and the RAM has been doubled to 512 MB. Rest remains the same as the Droid. The Droid 2 currently runs Android 2.1 but will be quickly updated to Android 2.2.
