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

What you just said is equivalent to owning shares in Pepsico, but refusing to drink their products.

Either that or you just hate America and don't want the Feds to be able to sell their stake in GM and get their money back.

No all I said was people do not use just logic when making purchase decisions. I own Ford stock and I buy Ford products. While the US Govt may have bailed out GM using the people's money, I'll never see a dime of it and neither will you. So no it's nothing like what you said.

The fact that I like most people let personal feelings influence my buying decisions means I hate America? I've been serving in the Armed Forces for the last 12 years and continue to do so.

BTW, #1 The Fed's will never recover the money.

#2 It's not their money, it's the peoples money.

Politicians and apparently you seem to ignore or forget that fact.

Next time try to read things in context, and don't things proportion. Idiot
