Motorola's Droid 2 shown off on film

droid-and-droid-2

Last week we got to see the Droid X strut its stuff on video, so it’s only fitting that this week we get to see the Droid 2 do likewise. Well, sort of. The guys over at Android and Me managed to score a Droid 2 from sources unknown and decided to show it off on film. As has been noted in the past, the two devices are very similar when it comes to physical characteristics. The main differences are 1) a more curved bezel, and 2) the re-sculpting of the keypad which has allowed for wider, more pronounced keys along with the elimination of that cursed D-pad in favor of arrow keys. But inside the phones slightly curvier frame is where the real differences lie. The old 500MHZ OMAP3 CPU has been swapped out for the much more powerful 1GHz OMAP3630 model (just like we said) and the RAM has been doubled to 512MB, both of which help the second iteration of the Droid achieve some impressive benchmark scores. Regrettably we don’t actually get to see the tests in action as the phone was not powered on during filming, but we’ll just have to take their word for it until we know the full story on June 23rd. We imagine you’re quite anxious to see the video, so click through to check it out.
