Motorola Droid 2: Specs and Verizon Release in Summer Confirmed

Are you thinking of jumping on board the Motorola Droid X bandwagon? You might want to re-think your ideas, since a leaked Verizon catalog has fresh details on the Motorola Droid 2, confirming a list of specifications for the device.

The leaked catalog comes to us courtesy of BGR, who were sent the juicy information by one of their Verizon contacts via email. The catalog refers to Verizon’s Summer/Fall lineup and features both the Motorola Droid X and Droid 2 as the main headliners.

Since we already know about the Droid X, we are focusing on the Droid 2. Thanks to the new information, we know now that the handset will feature a 5 megapixel camera, an 8GB memory card pre-installed on the device, EV-DO Rev A support, a 1GHz processor, Google Maps, 3G Mobile Hotpot and 512MB RAM.

We wonder when Verizon were planning to release this information publicly, perhaps after the Motorola Droid X launch? Either way, it is pretty obvious that this information is 100% legit. Check out more details from the catalog over at BGR.

Do you have anything to share on the Droid 2?

I have the droid x, and am still within my 30 days…. Should I get the droid 2 instead? The x has many problems that if they fix with froyo, I would be happy. I am getting used to the touch keyboard with swype,(and I was using an envy2) The worst part about the droid x is the in ability to cut and paste text with any presision. Who ever came up with the red bullseye dot is an idiot. do take a lot of pics with this thing and they are good quality wise. The hdmi is useless at… Read more »

I was thinking of getting the Droid 2, but it doesn't support HDMI out, so I may get a Droid X. I have the original droid, but my phone went bad, it is killing batteries, so I may be able to upgrade to a Droid X, for an additional charge. To the person who asked, who takes a lot of pictures with their phone? I do, I have an 8 Mega pixel digital camera, that I use for events and such, but when I'm on the go, and happen to see something I like, I use my camera. I take… Read more »

This article isn’t telling everyone to hold off on the droid x. Its just informing people it has the same specs as droid x but with a physical keyboard besides the camera. And if I remembered correctly, they said droid 2 will do hd video rendering.

And honestly, I don’t like that huge of a screen. I’m gunna get this or the samsung galaxy

Yo, don't be hateful to the man. If u want a physical keyboard, the Droid 2 is probably a better phone for u. He's not being a fag by expressing that. Lay off! AND IF PR IS THE WORST SITE EVER, WHY THE HELL R U READING IT!?

I would also rather have a physical keyboard. The digital touch-screen interface keyboards are slow and usually don't work properly. I can type 5-10 times faster on a physical keyboard. And yeah, who really uses their phone to take pictures all the time…?

5 megapixal vs 8 will actually yeald very little discernable difference. Picture quality in digital form is based on sensor size : Thats why a SLR digital camera is far more expensive that a casio 12 megapixal pocket camera.

DUH… it has a PHYSICAL KEYBOARD… maybe you think that unimportant, and that's probably why you don't work for r&d at motorola… geez you ever think that someone else may think a 8mp phone camera is unimportant.. because I have a canon rebel that I use to take pictures.. I would rather have the keyboard… idiot!

If a physical keyboard is important to you, it may make the difference

Amen brother. I'm seeing this everywhere. Oh the Droid 2 is coming, hold off on Droid X. Why it's better, slimmer, and just look at the specs. Sure who doesn't want to spend more for less lol!
