While we’ve seen shots of the device running Android 2.1 with Motorola’s custom skin on it before, this is the first we’ve ever heard of the Motorola Droid 2 (or any Motorola device) running it on top of Android 2.2. Droid-Life‘s tipsters discovered that tidbit when he was somehow able to sit down with the device this past weekend.
The skin is the same that we’ve seen on the Droid X (that Motorola conveniently isn’t keen on calling MOTOBLUR) with the one exception being it has 5 homescreen windows opposed to the Droid X’s 7. This story gets even more interesting as each leak comes to light. On the one hand, it was running their custom skin on top of Android 2.1. Later, we learned it was just a placeholder for vanilla FroYo. Now, it’s running Android 2.2 with the custom skin. Next thing you know, we’ll probably see this thing spotted with Android 3.0 if it keeps up like this! (Please do not take that last bit seriously.)
On a slightly related note, this gets us somewhat excited knowing FroYo could be just about ready to launch on the Motorola Droid X as it’s running nearly the same software.
