Motorola Droid 2 Pictures and Video Leaked Online

June 11, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Images of the Droid 2 smartphone and a video showing the booting animation on the handset from Motorola have been leaked on the internet. The phone seems to closely resemble the external features of its predecessor, the Droid 1, but seems to be slimmer and includes certain changes to the keyboard as well.

The slide-out QWERTY keyboard on the Droid 2 has puffed-up keys that are larger in size, which make typing easier for the user. The gold-colored D-Pad that was present on the earlier version of the Droid has also been removed for better accommodation of the keys. The Droid 2 also has a smoother look than the Droid 1 and the fingernail insert on the battery cover has been replaced as well.

Droid 2 has a 3.7-inch display and runs on the Android 2.1 OS although it might get an Android 2.2 update later. Its functions are powered by a 750 MHz OMAP processor and the phone features an improved version of the MotoBlur user interface. WiFi tethering is also expected to be a feature on the new phone, though it is not clear whether it will be a single-device link or a mobile hotspot like the one on the Android 2.2 OS. The smartphone is equipped with a 5 megapixel camera in the back. However, a front facing camera and an HDMI output are not present on the device. Other features include an 8GB internal memory and an 8 GB SD card that is preinstalled in the phone as external memory.

The release date for the Droid 2 has not been announced yet although it is expected to launch by the end of June or in July. However, a three-hour long training session on devices including the Droid 2 and the Droid Xtreme handsets by Verizon will be held on July 22 for all the employees who will be involved in retailing the devices.
