August 11, 2010 Leave a comment
Verizon launched their Droid 2 today on their site. It will hit their stores Tomorrow.
In a statement issued yesterday, Verizon revealed that the device is shipped with Android 2.2, Adobe Flash Player10.1, 8GB of memory, a 5-megapixel camera and a 3.7-inch display.
Verizon’s also confirmed that there will be a special R2-D2 version of Droid 2 in honor of Star Wars featuring a special design, as well as pre-loaded content on the phone.
Droid 2 will go for $199 with a two-year contract on Verizon. It will be interesting to see how the new Droid stacks up next to Samsung Galaxy S, HTC EVO 4G and Droid X in terms of performance and sales.
Considering how much Verizon charges on a data plan Sprint with HTC seems like a much better bet. Not to mention you can now turn your smart phone into a mobile credit card machine by simply downloading an application from a credit card processor.
Here’s are what I have collected about the device so far
- It will retain the original Droid’s excellent physical keyboard, although the keyboard buttons will apparently be slightly more raised.
- That weird ledge between the screen and keyboard layers of hardware is gone, so you’ll have a nice, smooth device in your pocket or purse.
- The device will feature a Wi-Fi tethering app, just like the Droid X and EVO 4G.
- You’ll also have a 750MHz OMAP processor, a 5MP camera and an updated version of Motoblur.
