A number of things that we wrote about the Droid 2 Global in September are apparently turning out to be correct. Firstly, such a phone is indeed coming. Secondly, the phone could actually be coming out in a white variant as earlier predicted. And finally, what we didn’t know this far, is that the unit could be sold at a price of $199.99 – presumably with a contract.
These details come from a leaked screenshot of an inventory database at popular American membership warehouse club Costco. The details revealed from the screenshot include the fact that the upcoming Android device will be available in two colors and that it will be available at a $200 price point.
The Droid 2 Global is considered to be a world-ready phone that will support GSM as well as CDMA functionalities and it has often been rumored that Verizon could shelf its original Droid 2 in favor of this upgraded variant.
