    Backflip, not like it at all

    I think that blue Droid 2 is an early pre-production model. Final version is likely to be somewhat different.

    There are some similarities there, makes sense as Moto makes both.

    I love my Droid, but don't use the physical keyboard... And not just because its crappy, I just got used to the virtual. Was hoping the Droid 2 did away with it completely... but I guess there are a lot still out there that prefer it....

    Current Phone Model:
    LG G3 (VZW), Nexus 7 v2
    Like I posted in another thread it is odd that it doesn't have the menu key.

    I don't mind the look of the moto droid keyboard to me it was different, yea it was hard to type on it but it gave it a distinct look, the new keyboard looks too plain and too normal, and i dont like the blue on it (if they decide to keep it)...also they deciding to keep the keyboard because it was one of the selling points of the moto droid, and had advantages over a lot of other phones because of it, without it, it will be like every other touch screen and might not sell as much without it.

    :motdroidvert: beats :iphone: any second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, decade, century, lifetime

    Yea the keyboard is the reason I chose the Droid over the Eris. The raised keys should make typing better.

    lol, see thats how little I used the keyboard, I forgot about that. The Caps Lock had to be pressed twice too. So, another waste of a key...that they probably could get rid of and other keys to make room for dedicated number keys.

    Or have it like the LG Ally have it: dedicated numbers combined with symbols. I think thats better than the way the Droid have it.

    I just like that Ally keyboard period....lol

    I like the new keyboard better then its current state, but I still feel there is a lot of improving that can be done with time. I don't feel the need to have a caps lock when you can double tap the shift to do the same thing on the current keyboard. Something else can be placed there. What I do really like on the new one though is the voice button. That, I do like a lot.

    I disagree... The Droid is still awesome even though I don't use the keyboard to often. The Eris sucks and the Incredible wasn't out yet when I got my phone. I love the Droid.. your point is not valid...
