    I have purchased accessories for the D1 (extra batteries, car holder, case). Can these be used for the D2?

    Have you ever been able to reuse something from one phone to another?

    id say the only that has a chance at being reused is the charger

    The battery might be compatible, but the skins...no
    Droid Pro is still a mythical device, the Droid 2 is set for release in early August

    Identical phones. It's just that the Droid 2 is 1ghz, 512 ram, and a much much better keyboard.

    These phones are different on the inside and outside, although the overall idea is the same the exterior has an updated shape which will make Droid 1 snap-on cases unusable. Holsters and pouches might work and possibly the battery from the D1, also it is not said if the D2 has MotoBlur or not which to some people is a big set back. The D2 ships with a tiny 8gb sd card, so if you are upgrading from your Original Droid you will have to switch those out, and as you said the keyboard is new and refined but personally I have become used to my Droid keypad. The new voice search key on the D2 physical keypad is a nice bonus but the worst is they have switched the soft keys at the bottom of the screen all around making it very confusing for an Original Droid owner to navigate around

    Definitely I don't think this is a device worth upgrading to if you already have the Original Droid...wait it out and see what the holidays bring

    The lip won't matter. I have the Droid home dock and there is no part that sticks into the lip area, so as long as the length and thickness and position of the micro USB are the same, the Droid 2 will fit the docks. The fact that the screen half is longer than on the Droid will make no difference. I don't know about the car dock.

    Droid 2 also has 8GB of onboard storage, which is why they are only shipping it with an 8GB MicroSDHC card.

    Judging from the way the car dock is made I don't think it'll work for the D2.
