Verizon Announces Droid 2 for August 12 Availability

August 10, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Well, after all the recent leaks, we finally got the official confirmation from Verizon Wireless that Motorola’s Droid 2 is headed their way. According to the press release, the device will be available for pre-orders at their website on August 11, and will launch in stores the next day for the price of $199.99 with a 2-year contract – after a $100 mail-in rebate.

The phone is confirmed to come with Android 2.2 installed, which features support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1, as some of you may remember. Additionally, the Droid 2 can be used as a hotspot for up to five devices that can utilize its connection, but this will cost you $20 a month as you’ll have to use Verizon’s 3G Mobile Hotspot service.

In the Droid 2, you’ll find a 3.7″ WVGA screen with capacitive touchscreen functionality, and raised keys for improved comfort (in response to the complaints about the flat keyboard found in the first Droid). There’s now a faster processor as well, plus more RAM for your needs.
