For those that aren’t particularly satisfied (for whatever reason) with what the Motorola Droid X will be offering sometime soon, then you might want to take a look at the successor to Verizon’s most successful Android phone to date: the Motorola Droid 2.

According to impressions by a Gizmodo reader who originally tipped them with the pictures, it’s quite a step up from the original Droid, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t completely sway you from the phone you have now. Confirmed by a Motorola rep at a tech show at NASA’s labs, it will have a 1GHz processor, come with vanilla Android 2.2 (the shots show NinjaBlur with Android 2.1, but apparently it’s only a placeholder) and 8GB of internal storage (accompanied by a pre-packaged 8GB microSD card.

What he liked most about the device, seemingly, was the keyboard. As we all know, Motorola’s ditched that real-estate-hogging d-pad to make room for bigger and spacier keys. If impressions are anything to go by, then you’ll have a very comfortable typing experience on this thing.

Shoot over to Gizmodo for the full impressions once you’re done drooling. Don’t worry, we’ll clean it up for you.
