Motorola DROID 2

Last updated: Apr 5th, 2012.

The Motorola Droid 2 is the followup to the Verizon handset that put Android on the map in a big way, and keeping with tradition key upgrades and an improved keyboard creates a device worthy of the name. Featuring a 1GHz processor, 3.7-inch display, and 5MP camera, the Droid 2 impresses with its power and style. The phone sports a slide-out QWERTY keyboard redesigned for a better messaging experience than ever.

A special edition Motorola Droid R2D2 with Star Wars-themed deco and pre-installed apps was released in the fall of 2010, and the Droid 2 was eventually replaced by the Motorola Droid 2 Global. The Global version of the handset features the same specs but adds in additional radio support for world-roaming capabilities.
