Motorola Droid 2: First Image before Release

Who needs the iPhone 4 when you have the Motorola Droid 2? That is what Verizon is probably thinking anyway – we have an image to show you now which looks to be the first picture of the handset in the wild.

As reported from Phandroid, the image has come to us courtesy of Droid-Life, which is also the same website responsible for all the recent leaks on the Motorola Droid Xtreme / Motorola Shadow.

Both handsets are due on Verizon this Summer and this latest one of the Motorola Droid 2 apparently shows the activation screen. As you can see though, the image is quite blurry so it is hard to tell if this is the real thing or not.

If it is real, then it does confirm that the Droid 2 will look pretty much identical to the original Droid, except there will be no slide out QWERTY this time.

We’ll update you when we get more details on this. Do you think this picture is real or not?


  • When they said, that Motorola is planning to release 2 smartphones for this year. The Motorola Xtreme a.k.a Shadow and this one called Motorola Droid 2 a.k.a Droid X.

    Actually it was 3, sources suggest that Motorola is planning to release a 3D phone as well.

    Well I say, keep on innovating your products Motorola — but stay away from BLUR!

    I work for verizon and this is not the moto droid 2 this is the new moto xtreme that launches july 12th to verizon.

    • This is the first date I've seen for either Xtreme or Droid 2. Is it confirmed??? Is there a likely date for the droid 2 release as well???
