    Another day, another leak. And although the Droid 2 has yet to be made official by Big Red, it is quite obvious that its launch is right around the corner. Today, Droid-Life leaked Verizon's official Droid 2 employee Training Guide. Although there isn't much new within the pages, reaffirming specs is always fun.

    Here are a few highlights from the Guide:
    • Android 2.2 with Flash 10.1
    • MotoBlur
    • 3G Mobile Hotspot
    • Swype pre-loaded
    • Improved Exchange capabilities and remote-wipe
    • "DVD quality video recording" (i.e., 480p or non-HD)
    • a plethora of bloatware

    Considering the Droid 1 has reached the End of Life list, Verizon employees are being asked to push the Droid 2 as its replacement. Will the Droid 2 replace your Droid 1?

    For a comparison with other top smartphones, Verizon provided a chart for that:

    Just a marketing decision if i was to guess. Droid x can market itself. droid2, being very close to its predecessor, needs a boost. I actually like to pseudo-blur on the droid2 and X, and the extra widgets are a plus.

    Just root your Droid 1 and you will have a Droid 2.

    One thing I really like about it is the Separate GPU provided for better image quality.

    I can't seem to get past it having motoblur. I don't know what it is exactly but I have no desire to ever own a phone with motoblur on it. The X has blur, I don't see the need for the Droid 2 to have it as well.

    You are missing the 8gb of internal storage which the apps2sd in Froyo just doesn't quite measure up too, this is the Original Droid's only real downfall

    true it does have more app storage better processor and more ram. but at the end of the day your stuck with what Motorola and Verizon deem necessary for you to get not what you want ill pass

    Sounds nice, but after going 4.3 there is no going back.

    Your probably not the only one, I'll pass too.
    Probably not, the D2's exterior has a sleeker shape to it

    I dont see why it wouldnt? It has the same shape and dimensions as the Droid 1. The only diference is the slider part of phone extends to the bottom of the phone. Unlike the Droid 1 which has that little chin.

    ^^ but thats the reason it wont fit in the car dock the little chin is held by the car dock. with the droid 2 i can bet that chin area is now thicker which rules out the car dock

    Lets try to be objective here.

    The Apples screen is better than the Droid 2, as is the Camera. Which the table shows them as being equal.

    The iPhone 4 is hotspot capable.

    The Blockbuster app should be a negative, as should VCast.

    iPhone 4 has swype.
