DROID 2 - Dream Phone
Hi All, i've been using Milestone about a week. It'a a great phone so far. Still i would like to see DROID2/MILESTONE2 with more interesting features. I just made fewer adjustment on it's appearance, especially with the keyboard and display.
My dream DROID2 specs goes as,
:greendroid: Andriod 3.0 (best exchange sync support)
Display: 4" Capacitive & OLED, 854x480 (if can 960x540)
Secondary video chat/call camera
New Gen Trackpad (like one in new BB phones)
Cortex A9 Multi-core processor / nVidia Tegra / Snapdragon 1Ghz or better
1500mA Battery or better
Note: I know, the sample DROID2 design (the attachement) is not completed or poorly designed, because I just used MS Paint and i'm not good at design.
feel free to comment :)
I'd add a physical talk/end button. And remove the D-Pad, replace it with a much smaller track-ball device, thereby leaving you room to expand the keys on the physical keyboard.
i'd personally get rid of the d-pad all together. I don't use the d-pad at all. I have a feeling the Droid2 will look quite different from the Droid/Milestone. Probably wouldn't even have a physical keyboard by then.
And that would be an awful thing... I've gotta have a physical keyboard -- I just can't type on a virtual one...

agreed. but the way i see the mobile industry going i think the physical keyboard will be a thing of the past. I use both the on-screen and physical keyboard, but late i've been using the physical keyboard more, since I can actually read the other things while typing in a response or search. the feel of a physical keyboard will never be replaced by touchscreen keyboards.

I too, would not be interested without a physical keyboard. It was one of the main reasons I got a droid, even if it's not so great.
personally, i'm not fall for full touch phone and onscreen-keyboard would take half of your content. Having a physical keyboard would let you have a massive big screen.
Is anyone find that D-Pad useful? I haven't used it for any good purpose yet.
Selecting text to copy/paste (in concert with the Shift key). And moving around within a text-input box to make corrections. But that's the only use I'm getting out of it. A track-ball would suffice, I would think...
