    Motorola Droids fans can now have reason to be very excited.

    Thanks to our member capo745 and Droid life it appears the Motorola Droid 2 will be making a splash VERY soon.

    Rumors have it releasing in July/August and the only reliable information on hardware specifics as of now comes from bill23 of Howard Forums.

    "here are a few facts on Droid 2.
    It is slightly more rounded edges,the open chin on the current Droid vs the Droid 2 is the same, but the face of the Droid 2 chin is equal lentgh. This means the exposed chin on the current Droid is open vs the Droid 2 chin is now part of the face slider.
    Also the 4 soft keys are moved around just a tad. Same location but the menu button isnt the 4 dash's. Its like the Devours 4 squares.
    The 5 way nav is gone and replaced with 4 arrows in the keypad. This allowed the keypad to be biggerfor fat fingers like mine.
    The camera is 5mp HD and the phone looks nothing like the pic above. not even close. It looks very close to the current Droid just evovled a tad. The power,volume,cam keys are now flush soft touch and not so obvious like the current Droid is.
    I cant speak on the guts yet too soon. This is all I can say so please dont ask for more specifics yet."



    Stay tuned everyone!! DROOIIIIIIID

    Didn't think it'd be coming out so soon. I still have 14 months left before it's new phone time. Oh well...Droid 3 it is! ;)

    I forget which interview it was but a Google exec stated they intend to have devices on 3-6mo life cycles. So we'll be on Droid 4, 5 or 6 by the time most of us are eligible for new every 2. lol

    I find that kind of hard to believe, though I will admit that this surprises me. I would say 6 months minimum, I can't see them doing it any faster then that.

    I'm still having a hard time believing they will make their flagship android device obsolete in just 8 short months. The Droid still has a lot of sales life left in it. I'm wondering if this Droid 2 will just have minor internal changes but the big difference being a better keyboard. Still it is a shame to kill the life of the Droid in basically its infancy.

    or you can do like I do and have phones for all 4 family members with staggered renewal dates, and use the family renewal dates for your own personal upgrade satisfaction, meanwhile passing on yesterdays phone to your unsuspecting/ unknowing wife/ kids lol
