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.
