Motorola Droid 2 Hands-On Video Appears Online

June 21, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A hands-on video of the Motorola Droid 2 handset has appeared online, courtesy of the guys at Android and Me, a few days before the phone’s rumored launch on June 23. The video shows the Droid 2 being compared to its predecessor, the Droid 1. However, the booting-up of the Droid 2 is not shown in the video.

The Droid 1 and Droid 2 phones are shown to be very identical in size and weight in the video and both handsets are even said to be powered by the same battery. Other features that are similar in the two phones include the 3.7-inch display and the 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and the flash.

However, the Droid 2 does come with a powerful TI OMAP 3630 processor with a speed of 1GHz and an increased RAM capacity of 512 MB. It has also shed the directional pad that was present in the Droid 1 to increase the space for the keys in the keypad and has included arrow keys. The keys in the four-row keyboard of the Droid 2 are also puffier and allow for easy typing as compared to the keys in the Droid 1’s keypad.

The actual specifications and performance of the Droid 2 can only be confirmed when (and if) it is released by Motorola and Verizon on June 23. However, users who are looking for better specifications including a larger screen and a better camera can wait for the release of the Droid X that might feature a 4.3-inch screen and an 8 megapixel camera.
