Are you a developer of cases and other accessories? Want to get the jump on your competitors? You're in luck, as Droid 2 dummy phones are now available for $29.99, from Cellular National Network.
A dummy phone is obviously non-functional. However these dummies show off some startling facts about the Droid 2 that had not been previously confirmed. Mainly, Droid 2 will possibly be rocking Blur, the same version found on the Droid X. This proprietary UI overlay may appeal to some, but I am sure this will be a turn-off to others. Also, if we want to nitpick, you will notice that the Droid 2 dummy is "pre-loaded" with Skype. More bloatware, really Verizon?
So why are we speculating about what we see on a dummy phone? Because it's fun. It may also mean the end of the "vanilla Android" smartphone. As the Nexus One had been discontinued recently, and the Droid 1 about to hit its End of Life date, there may never be another "Google Experience" phone again. If any new smartphone were to be carrying the Google Experience, it would've been the Droid 2. Then of course, we face the harsh possibility of the Droid 2 including an encrypted bootloader, like the Droid X. This may signal a dark age in Android development.
So, what does everyone think? Let us know.
