More Motorola goodness from Android and Me......Droiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid
Just watched this earlier this morning via a link on Facebook. I agree with what the guy said, calling it a refresh of sorts. Basically meaning that it's not a bad phone per se, just not a phone that you would bother upgrading to if you already have a Droid 1. Think of it as the 2.1 update only from a hardware aspect; rather minor. I think it's meant more for people with old phones and whose contracts have reached expiration, OR for the iPhone/Blackberry converts.
This is similar (albeit less impressive) to the new XBOX 360; same console more or less, modified design, improvement on cooling and hardware efficiency, and a few added features. I still think they should have called this something else besides Droid 2. Honestly they could have just kept calling it the Droid but made the model number the A856 or something similar. Save the Droid 2 title for a complete revamp down the road.
@Sweettooth - I think Droid 2 is fitting. But, i'm also coming from having the "enV2" - the enV3 is similar to the 2, save for having a flash for the camera, and some cosmetic changes IMO (i don't know much about the 3, i lost interest when i decided to move on to the Droid instead). There's enough improvements, and enough similarities to make it "the same phone but better" - not worth an early upgrade. IF this were to be the only Droid n model available come [2yr] upgrade time (read: motoDroid type phone - I don't include "Droid X" on that list...because it's a completely different phone - no keyboard), then I'd be all about it. But....realistically, there will be much better come that time (and i may only wait 1yr and pay the extra at that point...who knows). But yea, I think "Droid 2" is a fine and appropriate name for this phone

My Gimpy OG Droid is now officially a glorified alarm clock / potential media player (running Sourcery)
more new things then i thought :
- 512 mb ram
- 8gb internal
- new keyboard
but i already wrote in the comments in the youtube vid : he had set the white balance wrong thats why the the colors are so blueish. setting the WB to fluorcent in direct sunlight is some kind of stupid idea. he did the same thing with the pictures. very awkward for androidandme in my opinion.
