Verizon discontinuing original Motorola DROID 2, will only carry DROID 2 World Edition?

Published Sep 17th, 2010 4:36PM EDT

We’ve just gotten wind of a vicious little rumor that we wanted to share. We’re hearing that Verizon Wireless will be slowly discontinuing the Motorola DROID 2 that it launched last month and will soon only be carrying the yet-to-be-launched DROID 2 World Edition. While the move makes complete sense — from a manufacturing and inventory perspective — it may rub those who ran out and purchased the original DROID 2, sans world capabilities, the wrong way (especially if they price it at $199). This is just a rumor for now, but we want to know what owners of the original DROID Duece think? If this comes to fruition, are you going to be upset?
