Motorola’s DROID 2 Global lands on Verizon Wireless’ website; $199, 1.2GHz

We knew that we would have the opportunity to pre-order Verizon Wireless’ DROID Pro today, but we didn’t really expect to see the DROID 2 Global. Late last night, Verizon quietly added the D2 Global edition to its handset lineup; the device is live on the the site and available to order. The spec sheet on the DROID 2 Global mirrors that of the original DROID 2, with the exception of an added quad-band GSM and tri-band UMTS radio for world roaming capabilities, an upgraded 1.2GHz processor, and a white exterior (we’re assuming black is coming). The more worldly Droid 2 will retail for $199 with a 2-year contract and, if all rumors hold true, will completely replace the original D2 in the next month or so. Go ahead, hit the read link and have a look for yourself.

Amazon to sell Kindle at Best Buy this holiday season

Today, Amazon announced a partnership with big box retailer Best Buy to make the Kindle e-reader available in retail stores for the holiday season. In the past, Amazon had been firmly committed to the online sales model for its vastly popular ereader. Currently, Best Buy carries ereader products from Sony as well as Barnes & Noble in its stores and Amazon is looking to capitalize on the retail holiday-buying frenzy. The deal is for both the 3G ($189) and Wi-Fi ($139) Kindle models; the Kindle DX will be sold exclusively online for the time being. More →
