Will cost you $199 with a contract, $599 outright

Engadget posted pictures of the Best Buy display of the upcoming Motorola Droid 2 from Verizon, confirming the rumored price tag. Interested buyers will be able to pick up the follow-up to the popular Droid for $199.99 with a qualifying two-year contract, or $599 outright.

 

A sharp Floridian reader also submitted a Verizon promo showcasing the Droid 2 in yesterday's Tampa Tribune. The ad shows the Droid 2 in a succession of other top Droid phones, including the Incredible and the X, with a "coming soon" tag listed where the price appears on the other handsets.

A release date for the Droid 2 has not been confirmed, though rumors of an August 12 launch have been buzzing around the web. The original, nine-month-old Droid is out-of-stock on Verizon's website, suggesting the replacement's impending launch.

The Droid 2 is more of an upgrade to the original device than a bona fide, must-have replacement. It will be the first handset in the U.S. to ship with Android 2.2 "Froyo," beating out the recently released Droid X, and packs a full QWERTY keyboard, 1 GHz OMAP processor, 8GB of internal storage (with an 8GB micro-SD card included), and a an updated version of the Motoblur overlay. 

Early critics of the handset have pointed to the lack of a front-facing camera and no HDMI out.

The folks over at Droid-Life got their hands on a leaked user guide for the device, which you can check out for yourself here
