    Motorola DROID 2 Pre-Release Thread

    Figured it needed its own thread so we could possibly get more info on it.

    So far not much is certain...



    This is the only thing to go on....and Bill has said it was a very old render and has changed...

    My suggestion if you can or a Mod can is rename the title of the thread as Pre-Release Droid 2

    It would be nice if the Droid 2 was more curvier instead of the square the Droid is. It feels weird next to my ear to have the straight edges. I'm used to all my phones being curved up there.

    I suppose the thread name should be changed. Not too early for thousands of posts about the phone before its alleged fall release.

    Thanks Bill!

    Since my NE2 early upgrade is in August, I guess I can wait impatiently and read in this thread for more news.

    also the 4 soft keys are moved around just a tad.same location but the menu button isnt the 4 dash's. its like the devours 4 squares.
    the 5 way nav is gone and replaced with 4 arrows in the keypad. this allowed the keypad to be biggerfor fat fingers like mine.
    the camera is 5mp HD and the phone looks nothing like the pic above. not even close. it looks very close to the current droid just evovled a tad.the power,volume,cam keys are now flusg soft touch and not so obvious like the current droid is.
    i cant speak on the guts yet.too soon.this is all i can say so please dont ask for more specifics yet.


    William, that's great. LOL....

    Sounds like an improvement, I just hope the keyboard is better.

    Awesome thanks Bill!

    I don't know how I feel about the soft volume and cam keys...hopefully the new camera is loads better than the current based on stories of the original.

    And of course hope the keyboard is generally better than the droids is made out to be.

    Another thing that MIGHT be nice is if they turn around the microUSB port. I had the hardest time plugging a cable into the Droid because I am used to how it was on the v9m, krave, and rival. The Droid one is upside down.

    Thanks for the info. Is the keyboard any better than the current droid? How is the slide mechanism?

    Thanks

    Thanks, Bill. An improved keyboard can only help.
