If you are eagerly awaiting the DROID 2 to be released by Verizon Wireless, here is another good sign. The folks over at Droid-Life have found the devices 360-degree viewer on VZW’s website (a right of passage that all Verizon phones are treated to). To review: dummy units of the DROID 2 are on display and priced at some Best Buy locations, Verizon employees have been getting DROID 2 training, some Verizon Wireless and Best Buy locations are already carrying DROID 2 accessories, inventory numbers for the device began showing up in Verizon Wireless’ internal system yesterday, and the 360-degree web assets are appearing on Verizon’s site. Looks like everything is in line for a August 12th launch, no?
Fresh out of the rumor oven, still warm. Engadget is reporting that the Motorola DROID 2 could launch on Verizon Wireless as soon as August 12th. The tech site quotes a “trusted source” who also detailed that the 12th could be some sort of “soft launch” — as a full DROID creepy commercial media blitz is not set to kick off until the 26th. There was also mention of a Star Wars special edition DROID 2 with a picture of R2-D2 on the back of the phone. If the report is accurate, August 12th is just 23 days away… who’s excited? More →
