Motorola Droid 2 will Launch on 23rd August with Android 2.2?
There has been so much speculation around for Motorolaâ€™s Droid 2 smartphone. Dubbed to challenge the iPhone with its features and quality, the Droid 2 has created huge interest from fans and critics alike on how it is going to perform when put against the iPhone 4. With Verizon wireless backing the Droid 2 as its official carrier, the competition is just going to get that little bit harder due to AT&T having the iPhone 4 supported.
News is over the web that Motorola Droid 2 will be launched by Verizon Wireless on August 23, 2010 and the big news is that it is going to have Android 2.2 as its operating system. Currently no smartphone is shipping with Android 2.2 and the Droid 2 will be the first one to have Android 2.2 out of the box. It is also speculated that an August release date is chosen for the sole reason so as to ensure that it ships with Android 2.2 operating system. The original Droid is expected to see Android 2.2 in late July and the Droid X will get it in August. Both Droid X and Droid 2 have identical hardware specifications and the software running on both the devices will be the same as well come August.
Verizon Wireless hasnâ€™t announced any official pricing details for the Droid 2, but it is expected that it will ship at $199 with a 2 year contract.
