It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come.

Motorola Droid 2 Forums Added
As many of you know, Motorola came up with a few new devices for its Android line up. Among them, we have the infamous Motorola Droid X, which has been a huge (literally) hit for Verizon, who is the sole carrier of this device. It’s drawback? It has no physical keyboard, but to solve this, Motorola announced the upcoming release of another device, which is the original Droid’s successor. The Droid 2 will be coming to the US market very soon, in fact, it will go on pre-sale tomorrow on Verizon.
In the advent of this device hitting the streets, we have already prepared for the masses to have a home where to discuss, mod, and hack their newly acquired devices.

So, if you are thinking about getting one, make sure that you visit the device’s forum for some pre-sale discussions (and of course full blast development once the device finally arrives at your doorstep).
