    Droid Life has once again posted some great pictures of the Motorola Droid 2. In this picture we can see the slide-out keyboard and how the "chin" won't be exposed as in the older Droid which was a bit "clunky". The newer version looks very sleek and ergonamic.

    In addition, they posted up a full boot animation.



    I must say the boot animation looks great and really fits the "Droid" mold of the old red eye and brings up the tech level a little bit. These are the "leaked" specs of the Motorola Droid 2.

    • Android 2.1 (unless Verizon pumps out a last minute 2.2 update to it)
    • 3.7″ screen
    • 750MHz OMAP processor
    • Wi-Fi tethering
    • 8GB internal
    • 8GB SD card preinstalled
    • Updated keyboard
    • 5MP camera
    • New version of Motoblur
    • No HDMI port
    • No front facing camera

    Feel free to discuss!

    I wonder if it's time for us to start creating Droid 2 categories here? :)

    That is a great looking phone, but is it enough to upgrade to it? Everything looks the same except wifi and a different keyboard. Love the boot animation, tho

    No thank you. They WONT get my hyped up like they did the Blackberry Storm 2 when I had the first version. I'll wait until the 2ghz Motorola, or one with a front facing camera. I'll pass.

    I expect this to be a "small refresh" of the Droid. I think Verizon is still selling the crap out of the Droid and if they can use this "updated" version that fixes a few pet peeves that some customers have then more power to them.

    No need to upgrade to it but consider it like a 2nd year car-model refresh... a few small fixes and perks but not worth trading your car in for ;)

    I also like how they claim the chin wont be exposed....only to find out that the main screen will now have a chin as well.

    Its just a glorified Motorola Droid 1 with a little bit of updated specs.

    • Wi-Fi tethering
    • 8GB internal
    • Updated keyboard
    • New version of Motoblur
    These are the ONLY differences between this and the original Droid. Not worth it in my opinion.

    is this their way of forcing MotoBLUR on us? If the Incredible 2 was by Moto would they call it INCREDIBLUR?

    Looks cool but I think they should have waited and made the Droid 2 later on down the road. This just looks like any other phone like they've been releasing every few months...

    Sad to say but i'm looking to replace my Droid, hopefully with another Droid. This is my second Droid that's having tech issues (this time the aux jack is broken) and I'm looking to use it for movies/music soon.

    Wonder if Verizon will let me upgrade to Droid 2 once it comes out...

    I don't really see a reason to upgrade either. The only reason I would is because the Droid 2 seems faster. That boot animation was fast. I would wait like everyone else said until something way better comes out.

    If it becomes available when I'm eligible for a new phone in September and I can afford it I might. Have to admit it doesn't appear too terribly different then droid.

    They posted this is a different version of blur. This one is supposedly less intrusive.

    Not enough of a leap for me to switch from my Droid 1.

    Gonna wait it out and hope for a 2ghz Droid :)

    Wifi Tethering can be had by a simple app download in the market. So really, there are three, pretty much useless updates.

    No thanks.

    I know we all love our droids and it will be hard to let go.

    It also seems like the droid2 is not going to be much of an upgrade.

    Take note... the specs on the new droid2 seems sneakily similar to the Moto Shadow/Extreme.

    If that is the case... and you have ever run Quadrant on your droid you will know that the moto shadow with Ninja blur (which the droid2 is suppose to get too) is going to be CRAZY FAST!

    The moto shadow on quadrant with 2.1 on it scores almost as well as the 1ghz nexus one with 2.2 on it.

    So if you put that into consideration... the droid2 is going to be FAST! From what I know just scouring the internet... i believe the shadow has some great benchmark scores is because of its graphics processor.

    So if you look at it that way... a Motorola Droid2 or a Shadow may actually have the potential to be even faster than than a droid overclocked to 1GHz on 2.2.

    Not a bad deal if ask me. Can keep it stock and get better battery life... or overclock and prepare to take over the world! muahahaha!

    Motoblur is a total deal breaker I'd rather use smoke signals than touch that trash! Way to brick it motorola....
