Finally, Verizon officially unveils the Motorola DROID 2 Android smartphone, the successor to the successful and popular DROID. The new DROID gets a new look, which I think is less attractive than the original DROID/Milestone. The DROID 2 features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, just like the original DROID, but with a new, improved layout. It is powered by a 1GHz processor and runs the Android 2.2 and includes Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and 3G Mobile Hotspot function.
