    Is D2 worth the early upgrade

    Droid 2 Device Caught in the Wild Again


    On 06.18.10, In News, by Kellex

    Hey look, the Droid 2 again!
    It sounds like one of Gizmodo’s readers experienced a little hands-on time with the Motorola Droid 2 recently and came away with the same impressions and stats as we did. (Check out our exclusive photos here.)
    -Same look and feel as Droid 1
    -Better keyboard
    -8GB internal with 8GB SD card
    -Android 2.1 with Motoblur 2.0
    -5MP camera
    -Same dark chrome color with blue bottom
    I’m really starting to believe more and more that this chrome and blue model with Android 2.1 and Motoblur 2.0 is in fact just a test model. The color scheme doesn’t match up to the rest of the lineup’s black/gold/red exteriors and remember that the Droid X even seemed to morph each time we saw a new shot of it.
    Oh and Gizzie’s reader mentioned “Droid 2″ not being the final name, but our official commercial slides definitely said Droid 2 on them. A last minute name change seems a little unlikely.




























    Based on those stats who would waste an early upgrade for that. Any why. I am hoping that info is bogus and they do more with it or the D2 will be disappointing based on the other android devices that have or will be released.

    Agreed and with the new phones coming out this fall that sound amazing, I don't see why this would make anyone jump the gun for nothing more than a little body upgrade. I can't find a special thing about it. =[

    If they would have had a bigger screen and at least a snapdragon 1 ghz processor it would be a thought. But it seems as if they added what looks like a better keyboard and bumped up the processor speed. Other then the keyboard we have already figured out how to bump up our processor speed.

    The Droid I want is the size of the droid x with a keyboard and a 2ghz processor. Hopefully they come through with that. The 2ghz processor is what is keeping me from looking at the Droid x. If Ima burn an early upgrade I want something that is worth it.

    If u never had a Droid before, and want to get a phone with a physical keyboard, this is a great choice. Its waay better then the Devour and the LG Ally, expect for the keyboard....lol

    It has its pluses over the Droid: 8GB internal memory; faster, better cpu; better keyboard. If it has the same cpu that the Droid X has, there's no doubt this will be a powerful, fast phone. And it will have better battery life based on the 45nm technology. (for those that dont get that, it will draw less power from the battery, suck less juice out of it, and the cpu will be a lil cooler)

    But if u already have a Droid, then this is like nothing special, especially if u are rooted. For non rooted ppl, this is a good upgrade choice for a phone with a physical keyboard. But just for the cpu alone, this might make it worth an upgrade.

    Me, I thought I needed a physical keyboard, and I barely use it, expecially after using Swype. So I will probably be looking at slate phones or waaay better physical keyboard phones in the future. If the Droid X wasnt coming out, I would be all over this. Who knows, I may still get it if the X is too big, and save my upgrade for an LTE phone.

    I dont think its worth paying retail for tho if u already have a Droid, rooted, overclocked, using SetCPU profiles, running Froyo.....decisions....decisions....lol
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    Not with those specs. No front-facing camera, no 4.3" screen, no 8mp camera. As much as i love my physical keyboard, i'm willing to do without if need be. I'm saddened because i've become biased toward motorola since the droid, i've had the htc droid eris before and the audio output was horrible(music was no where near as loud or clear as motorola.)

    Imo don't pay full retail for the Droid 2. It's just basically a Droid with a better processor and a different keyboard ( I don't mine the current one ). If you are going to pay full retail for a phone, I'd rather get the Droid X, it's a completely different phone.
