Android and Me: Verizon, Google, and Motorola are set to unveil the “Next generation of Droid” this Wednesday, but Android-and-Me got hands on the Droid 2 a little early. This phone might look exactly like it’s predecessor on the outside, but it packs a speedy 1 GHz processor on the inside.
Looking at its screen, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 will not bowl you over with its beauty. It’s got a forehead like Peyton Manning, sideburns like Gen. Ambrose Burnside, and a chin like Jay Leno. But there’s so much more to design than aesthetics, and the phone’s marquee feature is an impressive bit of engineering: the screen is shatterproof. Drop it over and over and over again—face down, corner down, behind the back, under the leg—without fear. Trust me on this. I passed it around a bar full of people in various states of drunkenness and encouraged them to try it. The phone survived.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread for Motorola DROID X is reportedly leaked, last week there was a rumor that Android 2.3 Gingerbread for DROID X would be released yesterday, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. Now It seems that Android 2.3 Update for DROID X and DROID 2 as well has been leaked and now available for download.
Cnet: The Motorola Droid 2 offers a number of improvements that make it a worthy upgrade from the Droid and certainly a top choice for those who want a smartphone with a physical keyboard.
