    Well it seems Best Buy confirmed the 12th as the official release date for the Droid 2.

    Here is a screen shot and some info on the phone from droid-life..

    That hard-to-read screen text says:

    Droid 2: Hard Street Date August 12
    Looking for some devices to go with those mysterious Rocketfish cases you received last week? How about the Motorola Droid 2?​
    The Droid 2 launches Thursday, August 12 with a hard street date. Do not sell the Droid 2 before August 12.


    Check out just a few of the specs below:​

    • The first Verizon smartphone to launch Android 2.2 (Froyo) with Adobe Flash 10.1
    • Big screen: 3.7 inches
    • 1 GHz processor that loads web pages 40 percent faster than the original Droid
    • Becomes a 3G mobile hotspot for up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices
    • Multiple input options. Touch, talk, type, or SWYPE, bigger physical QWERTY keyboard
    • 8 GB pre-loaded microSD card and 8 GB of internal memory (upgradeable to 40 GB with optional 32 GB microSD)
    • Facebook, MySpace and twitter in real time without logging into multiple sites
    • Universal Inbox: See texts, social network messages, email, Exchange, and more (or view them all separately)
    • 5 MP camera with dual LED flash, digital zoom, and autofocus. DVD-quality video recorder

    It is so hard to keep holding off! I still love my droid but temptation keeps calling. I held out on the X. I think I can wait threw this also. Holidays are coming up and I think there is still something even better coming. The I remember reading something from the CEO of moto, but I don't recall exactly what the details were. So no I want to but just can't give in yet.

    My Droid does all that and then some. I just don't have the 8gb internal storage. The Droid 2 reminds me of the Storm 2. Only some subtle hardware changes. Only difference is the Droid 1 is a GOOD phone compared to the Storm 1, which was really awful.

    I am holding off until I see how well 2.2 does on my Droid. I like the idea of faster processing without having to overclock, and the improved keyboard. Verizon had already offered me a early-upgrade special if I want it or the Droid X.

    Im wondering if I should have my wife upgrade to this? She is currently using my Rooted/OC'd Droid 1.

    Better keyboard, more internal storage/ram...hmmm Locked boot loader I bet.
