    Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows if the ribbon for the Droid2's are the same as the Droid1's. I have been using a friends R2D2, and I absolutely love the spaced out keypad. Does anyone know if they work in the Droid1's or should I just buy one and fine out for everyone?

    You mean take half of the Droid 1 and half of the Droid 2 and make a Droid 1.5 - it probably will not work

    The Droid 2 Global is what I would be looking at if I were you

    No... I mean just the Droid 2 keypad. I'm sorry if I was misunderstood.

    I understood - and it probably won't work, I like the D2 keypad also - it is quite the improvement but I am going to wait to upgrade from the Original Droid for something bigger and better

    Well I am sort of looking for a more of a technical explanation of the compatibility, like backed up with fact. I am wondering if anyone has done any repairs on the Droid 2 as well as the Droid 1. I have only had experience with the Droid 1. I have not had a client yet needing repair on a 2, so I do not know if all the internals of the 2 are identical, just upgraded, rather than only a more sleek casing.

    Awesome, I see in the pictures that the connection is the same, that's the first good news. Just hope there is no "driver" type issue with it.

    That's a good link, thank you for that.

    I'd like to know if they're swapable too. The keyboard only costs about ten bucks.

    Do you know where to find one then? None of my normal suppliers carry Droid2 parts yet.

    I guarantee it wont work.

    If its that big of a deal why not just get a Droid 2 and have all the benefits of an upgraded phone?
