    How can you tell from that pic?

    Anyway, it's known that the Droid 2 is just like the Droid 1. Same overall size, same screen size, slider keyboard, but an improved keyboard. Upgraded processor, some external styling improvements. May have more internal memory.

    Your choices will be an very nicely upgraded Droid 1, for those who want keyboards, vs. an entirely new keyboard-less phone with the Xtreme. If you love the phyiscal keyboard, wait for the Droid 2, I'm on the fence regarding the keyboard, so I have to wait until both phones are released until I decide.

    BTW, if you look at the original pic from Droid-Life, it's pretty much full size, so you can see the chin modification has been omitted from this pic. Between cropping pics and using the blurry-cam, it's tough to know much about the Droid 2, and this may be a prototype. It's all good though, we have some cool stuff on the way soon.

    I'd buy it. I think that's what I'll start saving for and buy one for me and my brother when he gets his update in July. Looks very cool, with a very good improvement on the keyboard we have now.

    Also with the prototype droid 1 the area around the screen was silver so it may not be a huge upgrade :dry:

    Also, the Motorola Droid's processor overclocked to only 800Mhz is on par with benchmark's of the 1Ghz Snapgragon.

    Take it for what you want. I want a 1Ghz OMAP in the near future dancedroid

    Why is it that all these people doing sneaked photos of equipment have never heard of MACRO mode for their cameras ???

    Geez, I can take a quick photo, but at least it won't be that "hi I sneaked this out to you, sorry for the fuzzyness /grainyness" ...

    Ok, I know I need coffee, but really ....

    If the Droid Pro is released this year, it will be the best Android phone available IMO. The rumored specs on that thing are ridiculous.

    Could also be they are zoomed in from a distance, which is difficult to get a very clear picture, especially "on the sneak" when trying to snap a shot without being seen... ;)

    Not that I know anything about taking pix of things I shouldn't be.. :icon_ banana: mikey :)

    I love motorola build quality. I've never owned any other brand cell phone (starting with a StarTac). Alas, I'll stick with my trusty Froyo Droid until my contract is up for renewal w/ Verizon or they let me upgrade earlier. The wife won't stand for me to pay full price for a phone. :)
