It’s official. Verizon Wireless and Motorola today announced that the DROID 2 by Motorola will be available for pre-sale on August 11.
“When we announced DROID X last month, we reaffirmed our commitment to continue to bring unique Android experiences to the Verizon Wireless network,” said Jeffrey Dietel, vice president – wireless device, marketing and development for Verizon Wireless. “The DROID by Motorola was our first Android device, so it is important for us to include the successor to that phone in our portfolio. DROID 2 is not only a continuation of our commitment to Android but offers customers the features and form-factor they crave on the Verizon Wireless network.”
The DROID 2 sports an enhanced QWERTY keyboard, ultra high-speed Web browsing, 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities, full push corporate e-mail, intuitive social messaging and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full web – all built on Android 2.2.
Users will be able to watch content on the full multi-touch 3.7-inch brilliant display, or share content captured on the 5mp camera with enhanced functionality and DVD-quality video capture with DLNA connectivity to share on compatible devices.
The DROID 2 will be available online beginning August 11, and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores beginning August 12 for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement.
