Who would have thought a few years ago that Motorola would be doing what they do best, building and selling great phones. They were once respected in this field, but a number of bad cell phones canceled all that hard work. However, since the launch of the Droid running the Android mobile OS the company has turned things around; so came as no surprise that they would launch more based on that platform – Droid X vs Droid 2.
The cell phone company must be confident with its new range to launch two more models. We know that the original Droid was the best selling Android handset to date — will they be able to repeat that success?
The Droid X was launched last week and comes with a large 4.3’ widescreen display — the widest in the smartphone market. The 8-megapixel camera offers image quality much the same as the HTC EVO 4G — although you will have a job getting your hands on one at the moment.
The Droid X also has a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, but is it enough to persuade owners to buy this new handset or should they wait for the Droid 2? We recently reported that there are a few hidden features on the Verizon website.
As for the Droid 2, there will be a number of changes to hardware, but the main difference will be the fact that it will come with a physical keyboard. This is said to be the true successor to the original Droid — now that is a huge responsibility in its self.
The Droid 2 looks set to have a 3.7-inch display, 8GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel camera and many more. Read our recent post for more spec and release details.
