Motorola DROID 2 user guide leaks, cases spotted

Man, how much longer can Motorola and Verizon Wireless try and keep the lid on the DROID 2? Earlier today, Droid-Life obtained a user guide for the yet-to-be-released DROID 2 as well as an image of DROID 2 cases on sale at Best Buy. The user guide reveals that the device will have Motorola’s UI enhancements — same as the DROID X — and will in all likelihood be launching with Android 2.2; as opposed to Android 2.1. We’ve heard August 3rd tossed around as a potential launch date (Verizon likes to launch handsets on Tuesdays). Come on Verizon, kick the flood gates open already! More →

This weekend, the folks over at Droid-Life acquired an image that seems to answer a question a lot of potential DROID 2 owners have. Will the DROID 2 ship with Android 2.2 — Froyo — or will they have to wait for Verizon to release an update? Well, luckily it looks like the answer to the first half of that question is: yes, the DROID 2 will ship with Android 2.2. The image obtained by DL shows a D2 prototype running Froyo, with Verizon branding, complete with Motorola’s not-really-BLUR UI (joy). Android 2.2, an improved keyboard, and a 1 GHz processor?! We can’t wait! More →
