Motorola Droid 2 Android PhoneThe new Motorola Droid 2 looks and feels much the same as the original Motorola Droid but its processor and storage capabilities are certainly upgraded from the original Droid. The Motorola Droid 2 has the same 3.7 inch touch screen display with new casing a dark blue color with silver metal highlights that are beveled on the edges to give the Droid 2 a sleeker look, much like it’s largest competitor, Apple’s iphone. The most obvious external difference between the phones is the Motorola Droid 2’s keyboard. The updated standard QWERTY keyboard slides out and has raised keys for easy typing. The Droid 2 keyboard does not contain the directional pad that the original Droid has, this adjustment allows for the full keyboard to be larger and centered. They have added simple arrow keys to allow for directional movement without having the larger “D-Pad” that received poor reviews on the first version. The raised keys on the expanded keyboard are also larger allowing for the user to type easily. The view on the screen switches to horizontal automatically to accommodate the keyboard sliding out from under the screen, a feature common to all the Droid models. The Droid 2 still includes the 3.5mm headphone jack that both the original Droid and the Droid X use.
Motorola Droid 2 Android PhoneThe Droid 2 has a 1 GHz processor and a PowerVR SGX530 graphics processor. The Motorola Droid 2 has 8GB internal storage and comes with an 8GB microSD card installed for additional storage which can be expanded to up to 32 GB. The Motorola Droid 2 has 512 MB RAM, which does make it generally run faster than the original Droid. The camera is 5 megapixels with autofocus capability and dual LED flash to illuminate your photos, the same camera that comes on the original Droid but a far cry from the capabilities of the Motorola Droid X’s 8 megapixel camera. The smart phone also comes with MOTOBLUR and works with Android OS 2.2 allowing the user to switch between the eight most recent applications used as opposed to the six that the original Droid will allow. Adobe Flash 10.1 is supported by Droid 2 allowing the user a great video viewing experience, though the smart phone is not equipped with HD like its brother the Droid X. The phone comes with web browsing and 3G mobile hotspot and can be used as your own personal portable Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows you to use your 3G data connection to browse the web on a variety of other wireless capable devices in addition to your Droid 2. The Motorola Droid 2 costs $199 with the signing of a two-year contract with Verizon wireless or is available for $599 without a wireless contract. It is clear that the Droid 2 has stronger computing capabilities than the original Droid. However, when examining all of Motorola’s smart phones, some buyers will still choose to go with the Motorola Droid X due to its superior video and photo capabilities.
