Here’s another leaked device courtesy of Droid Life before we bid this week goodbye and head on to the weekend. Meet the Motorola Droid 2. We’re not sure if that’s its real name, but that’s what they’re calling it right now.
Headed for Verizon, this Android phone looks like a more polished version of its predecessor, the Motorola Droid (aka Milestone in Canada), which made a successful debut last year on the same carrier in the US. Aside from a four row QWERTY keypad, this baby also reportedly packs a 3.7-inch touchscreen display, 5-mgapixel camera, WiFi with tethering support, 750MHz OMAP 3 processor, 8GB internal memory with an 8GB microSD card preinstalled, and a more subtle version of MotoBLUR called ninja blur which was also spotted on the Motorola Droid Xtreme that was leaked last week. As far as its OS is concerned, it was seen running on Android 2.1 but there is hope that it might get an Android 2.2 sometime in the near future.
Here’s the boot sequence of the Motorola Droid 2 caught on camera:
Its release date and pricing are still yet to be known though rumor has it that this new Motorola QWERTY touchscreen Android phone will be launched sometime in Q3 at the same time as the Motorola Droid Xtreme. We’ll report more on this once additional info is made available.
