    One of my favorite tech blogs Gizmodo was lucky enough to get tipped off with a few more pictures and detailed first impressions of Motorola's next Droid, the Droid 2 (A955). The tipster had a chance to get some hands on time with device while his attending a tech show held at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
    Here are a few specs we believe the phone will launch with:

    • 1GHz Processor
    • Android 2.2
    • 8GB Internal Memory
    • 8GB Included micro-SD Card
    • D-Pad on Keyboard replaced with Arrows
    • Wider Keyboard
    • Button for Voice Commands
    • No D-Pad on Keyboard
    • 5MP Camera
    • Same Size as the current Motorola Droid

    While a release date has not been confirmed, the current rumors suggest sometime this summer. Be sure to check out the entire post here: Droid 2: First Impressions

    Is the camera jacked up or are the hardware keys lit up blue? Blue keys? With the branded icon being a RED eye? I can already tell so many people are going to have a fit over this minute detail. :)

    i wish i could trade my droid for this. in comparing the keyboard, if you look at the delete key, it is all the way over at the end of the screen. on my droid, it is very far from the edge of screen. this means the kayboard is much larger-bigger keys and an easier reach from the right side.
    I don't use my keyboard much, but i think i wouldn't avoid it with this.

    It also looks like the "chin" (which i don't think is a bad design) is attached to the top slider. this is also a change.

    I hate to say it, but I will not be getting the Droid 2. Too many negatives for me; motoblur and keyboard. I might be getting something HTC the next time around, if they have something without sense on it.

    I use the Droid Moto and the HTC DI and I just rooted my Moto D to Froyo 2.2 and pleased that the Wifi is working on it.

    However the speed and feel of the DI has impressed the heck out of me compaird to the moto. I dotn think the moto 2 will compaire to the HTC DI honestly. Also droid 2 does not have 8mp camera, I like the Dpad, and seems like all were getting is a faster processor with the Droid 2 and a new design. Not seeing much of a difference between it and the Moto D first edition.

    Happy with my Droid because its rooted and I have Wifi, and also happy with my DI because of the speed and Scenes Function.

    However Im not knocking the Droid 2, hell Its still a Droid and the most fantastic invention since Toilet Paper.

    I'm probably going to wait until a droid with a front facing camera is released.

    I think they have an app to randomize the buttons...seems like they're keeping the search button the same, but it may just be a matter of time... :blink:

    It seems like Motorola just addressed minor complains with the Droid 1, slightly refreshed the design and dumped it on consumers hoping we eat it up. This is what cost Motorola so much market share before. They make a hit phone, then don't really change it and keep trying to resell it to us with new names.

    The Droid was a success because it was well made, hefty, ran on a new OS, was different from everything else on the market and had a MASSIVE ad campaign. The Droid 2 is going to bomb.

    They need to go back to the drawing board, give us a more attractive and unique design, redo the new (crappier IMO) keyboard, give it some impressive internals, double the processor speed, better camera... and it will sell.

    The reason the Iphone blows out of the stores each year is because it's new, fresh, better than the previous model and the OS is astounding. The Droid 2 is a fail on every level.

    The Droid 2 ad campaign...... "Droid 2 : Droid Does (marginally better than the previous model)"
