    There are already pictures of the "Droid 2.0" phone out. It is impossible to have the newest/best phone for too long, so just got for whatever you enjoy when you can.

    HacktheDroid there is a reason why most physical keyboards are on the way out. Because from an aesthetic point of view, they are hideous. They look and feel like buttons that you would find on a child's toy.

    The Droid's is sleek and stealth and before anyone goes ahead and makes a remark "Function over Form" or something related, I use the physical keyboard 95% of the time. So while it is possible I may be an advanced, evolved entity from the depths of the Cosmos and that's why I find it very easy to use....or it simply just may not be true

    as for motoblur on the droid I'd imagine when there is a dump for it we'll see a port for the Droid soon after...

    Not sure; although you might be able to. Will have to ask someone else about that one.

    I am happy with my current Droid. It seems well built, even though it could use some needed keyboard spacing improvements. I would not be ready to jump to some "plastic" or "lightweight" or "improved" version. Give the next design change some time and make it worth the wait... Make it smoother and more polished like the iphone...

    Even the droid boxes looked "klunky" and cheap... Thankfully the they put the money in the Droid... But they should have included the "Japanese touch... cover everything in a plastic bag and make it out of glossy paper that you love to touch... Just my thoughts.

    Been playing this game for years. In the tech world worrying about what will come along to top your current equipment, whether phones or computers, will assure that you never ever upgrade to new stuff. Buy what you need and learn to use it. Try to avoid an adolescent mindset that embeds your ego in your equipment.

    This same picture was posted on this forum with an LG logo and now with this thread it says Verizon where the LG logo was. It's fishy.

    If it's going to the A55 I'm going to laugh my A55 off. Did no one notice what that looks like?

    I like this potential design. I also like the fact that it HAS a 4th keyboard row!

    The curved contours of the screen section seem to flow more smoothly in to the chin area, than that of the current Droid design. This potentially gives this android phone a thinner effective profile and effectively kills some of the "industrial Box design," rhetoric, which some Droid critics :)heart::iphone::icon_ poke::motdroidvert: ) eschewed when the Moto. Droid was first released.

    If this is a real concept product, then it would appear, to me anyway, that someone at Motorola's design team is listening and actually learning from this Droid/Milestone experience. Except for the key spacing part. :blink:

    And for God's sake Motorola, PLEASE do not use a membrane-like keyboard, EVER again, on another mobile device! :soapbox:

    the first picture looks pretty cool but i dont see the appeal in a watered down version of the droid unless its not a smart phone so you dont have to worry about the data fee but without the internet the droid would lose a ton of functionality
