Motorola shows off yet another Android device

Verizon seems to be on a roll these days when it comes to Android smartphones. Yesterday, we saw the launch of both the Droid Pro (with a built-in QWERTY keyboard) and the Continuum (with a "secondary" display). Today, Verizon is ushering out another offering from Motorola: the Droid 2 Global.

The Droid 2 Global improves upon the standard Droid 2 by incorporated a 1.2GHz processor, quad-band GSM, and tri-band UMTS. As result, the Droid 2 Global lives up to its namesake as it can practically be used anywhere in the world.

Other features include a 3.7" display (854x480), 5mp camera with dual-LED flash, and 16GB of storage (8GB from internal storage, 8GB via an included microSD card).

The smartphone will be available in Winter White and Dark Sapphire, and retails for $199 after a $100 mail-in rebate.

In other news, Samsung is reporting that it has shipped over 3 million Galaxy S smartphones. "We're in a situation where we wish we had more supply," said Samsung CMO Paul Golden to Reuters.

I love Swype too, but where I've found the keyboard to be really useful is when editing. Moving the cursor around by touching the screen makes me want to pull my hair out. It's rarely accurate, and usually takes me 3+ tries to get it right in front of the letter I want to delete. With the keyboard, cursor control is precise and exact.

If you don't do much editing, then yeah I can see the Captivate's form factor being better for you. But at least it's a nice keyboard. It has a number row as well as letters, so you don't have to switch entry modes or hold down a key for longer to type in numbers. The keyboard buttons are nice and clicky too, like the old HP calculators only without as much keypress travel.
