    Yup! Your looking at a leaked photo of what could be the next Droid heading to Verizon Wireless, behold the Droid 2 Global. Appearing with a new color scheme this new Droid 2 is rumored to have new internals that should make it more friendly for international travelers. Look out RIMM, this could take a bite out of Black Berry World Edition phones sales!

    While the device hasn't been officially confirmed by Verizon, there has been chatter for the current model of Droid 2 receiving a refresh. Ya I know, it's only been available for a month so kinda hard to believe! Just a few days ago BGR this photo showing the Motorola Droid 2 available only while supplies last:

    1.2 GHz CPU...I hope it comes out before my 30 day return period on D2 expires :)

    Not to change subjects but is the R2-D2 CPU 1 or 1.2?

    I like the front of the phone but the back really does look like crap because it looks like several phones parts put together. But what I like most about this article is that there is more speculation that original droid 2 owners will be getting pretty good upgrades. I hope this device comes out soon so that this 'refreash' will happen sooner. Because I've been hearing these rumors for days. Thanks for the article.

    Spray Paint does wonders ;) Though sad you would have to do such things to a device, but at least make it look better.

    I thought it looked alright the first look...but now I think that they should've just made it all-white or all silver.

    They could have at least made the White Battery Door match the White they used on the whole back of the phone lol or made the whole phone white that would have been a nice looking phone but not feeling the 2tone

    Oh really?? thats awesome.... i might have to get it but i dunno it dont seem like that much of a real update from my D1 to me (i dont travel outta the US lol) i can do everything the D2 can on my D1.... im hoping that Evo phone comes out before the end of the year that would be an awesome phone or a droid that is more similar in size to the Fascinate... i think that 4" screen size is the perfect size

    Everyone has the right to free speech, but please keep in mind that saying the word gay in that way in reference to something like a dump design, which I do agree with you, but please keep in mind what some terminology in any context is offensive. As many thread posters and forum administrators, let's please keep politics, religion, and other things like that out of the forum. Thanks

    What a gay statement ;) Maybe people find you offensive by trying to be so PC. You can read that in the context and not be offended. If someone calls me gay cause I am happy can I tell them I am offended because they think I am a homosexual? Many words have different meanings and people should learn to understand the context in which it was stated instead of trying to be so PC and claim everything offends them or someone else...
    ---------------
    Anyways... Maybe someone will make R2-D2 stickers for the World Edition for those that missed out ont he R2-D2. Now that would be GAY.
