    Droid 2 discontinuted?

    Verizon discontinuing original Motorola DROID 2, will only carry DROID 2 World Edition? Boy Genius Report

    This is a bummer if its true. My wife was looking at getting one. Now she's going to wait to see if this rumor is true. I really like the D2 (and I have an X). I hope this is only rumor.

    BGR says it's a rumor, not fact. I'll believe that when the advertising stops like it did with the original Droid.

    The droid 2 and droid world are the same phone, the world just has the capability to run gsm as well as cdma. At least thats what Ive read. So unless your planning on going to europe, theres no reason to wait for the droid world phone.

    If this is true, it would make sense. VZW seldom offers both a CDMA-only AND a "World Phone" edition of the same device. For instance, when the BlackBerry 9630 was available, it was only available in the "World Phone" version. Same with the Storm series. If the costs in offering the dual-capable version are neglible, it wouldn't make sense to offer them both if all other specs were equal to the Droid 2.

    The big question for me is whether the Droid World will have the same basic software that the Droid 2 has. If not, there won't be many people out there working on ROMs for the D2.

    Even if true, I don't see what the problem would be. I had a Storm, it had the SIM card to use GSM if I went to Europe. I never used it because in my 50 years on this earth I've never been there and have no plans any time soon. If you get a Droid 2 and it has the SIM, big deal, you don't need to activate it unless you're going overseas.

    Let's not freak out over nothing here. If you walk into a Verizon Wireless store on day and all the have is the D2 world phone it won't matter. A c-note says the D2 will still be available on Verizon's website. The website already has "discontinued" and "end of life" devices on it.

    All BGR has done lately is provide rumors that people freak out over for no reason.

    I agree with Dragoro. This is most likely a rumor because it has never been advertised as a world phone. The world version is for people that travel alot.
