While we were busy digging up info on the Droid X by Motorola, our pals over at Droid-Life were getting their hands dirty with the Motorola Droid 2. Clear images of the new keyboard and revamped casing show a familiar yet refined handset. Check out how the screen now covers the “chin” when slid shut, where it originally stopped on the first Droid.

We also are getting word of some of the specs for the second-generation Droid:

  • Android 2.1 (unless Verizon pumps out a last minute 2.2 update to it)
  • 3.7″ screen
  • 750MHz OMAP processor
  • Wi-Fi tethering
  • 8GB internal
  • 8GB SD card preinstalled
  • Updated keyboard
  • 5MP camera
  • New version of Motoblur
  • No HDMI port
  • No front facing camera

Rounding out this info is news that June 22nd is the date for a Verizon in-house training session on both the Droid 2 and Droid X. If it’s anything like the Droid Incredible training that went down within weeks of that phone’s launch, it is almost certain we will be seeing these handsets in July at our local Verizon stores (for more images, head over to Droid-Life).

Oh, and want more? Here is a quick video of the Droid 2 boot animation. I’m liking your new look, red eye.
