Droid 2 looks a lot like the original

The Motorola Droid was unveiled officially in October of 2009 and Motorola has recently stated that the device is still selling well (partly due to Verizon's vigorous two-for-one promotion). This week, photos of what is reportedly the Motorola Droid 2 have surfaced. The Droid 2 looks almost the same as the original handset with a notable exception being that the D-pad from the original is missing from the keyboard of the Droid 2. The only other visual difference is a slight change to the design of the battery cover reports Droid-Life.

The big changes are all on the inside. The Droid 2 is pegged to run Android 2.1 and sports a 3.7-inch screen; the processor is a 750MHz OMAP unit, and the new Droid will support Wi-Fi tethering. Internal storage is 8GB and the handset will ship with an 8GB SD card installed. The smartphone will also sport a new version of Motoblur.

Interestingly, the Droid 2 has no forward facing camera for video conferencing like the iPhone 4 and other devices on the market. Motorola has stated previously that it will be offering several handsets supporting video conferencing this year and apparently, the Droid 2 isn’t one of them. The device also lacks HDMI out.

Droid-Life is also reporting that a training session on the Droid 2 will be held for Verizon employees on June 22 so the device may be coming sooner than expected.

Great, I've been complanining how hard it is to find a decent phone without a camera so I can take it to work, meanwhile the industry is adding more!

I may seriously just have to give up on cell phones in a few years, what's the point of a cell phone if you have to leave it at home most of the time?

The really crappy part is most of the non-camera phones are either really basic, or cost as much or more than a better phone with the camera!

walmart has a little motorola phone that is literally just a phone for AT&T, just pop yer sim into it for goin to work, switch back to your regular phone once you are outta work.

yeah, its a basic phone, but hey, yer at work, you shouldnt need anything more than basic text messaging and phone calling anyway :P
