This morning, the Motorola Droid 2 showed up at our door step, courtesy of Verizon. Although it’s been just a little over a month since the Droid X launch, Motorola is back again with the successor to the extremely popular Droid we reviewed last year. If you haven’t heard, the Droid 2 features a 3.7 inch screen, a 1GHz processor, Mobile Hotspot for up to 5 devices, 8GB of internal storage, microSD expansion, a 5 megapixel camera, 720p video recording, and much more. Like the original Droid, the Droid 2 has a slide out QWERTY keyboard as well as an on-screen one. Swype has quickly taken over as the choice for virtual predictive keyboard and like the Droid X, it comes pre-installed on the Droid 2. In addition, this smartphone stands out since it is one of the first devices to ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo) running out of the box!
If you haven’t seen our Droid 2 vs Epic 4G infographic, that’s worth a glance. We also have a full in-depth review in the works, but in the meantime, check out the Motorola Droid 2 gallery:
And as an added bonus, here are a few shots of the Droid 2 lined up besides the Droid X. This phone’s metal rim makes it feel heavier and more robust than the Droid X. While the plastic and rubber casing makes the Droid X feel somewhat cheaper, the Droid 2 clearly offers a expensive-looking quality build. As for size comparison, the Droid X is significantly thinner except for the hump at the top which brings it to approximately the same thickness.
