When the iPhone first launched in 2007, there was a good six month gap between the unveil and launch. The phone still went on to become a hit. No longer. Such a gap between release and launch could burn a company today.
Six months after Motorola launched the Droid, the smartphone is already considered outdated. Consequently, we have been hearing that Motorola is planning to release a second version of Droid sometime in the next few months. So what will you get here? Here’s what we have heard
Display : 4.1″ TFT full-WVGA touchscreen display
Platform : Android 2.1 (upgradeable to Android 2.2)
Camera : 8 megapixel camera with HD (720p) video recording
Internal Memory : 2GB
1080p output via HDMI port
TI OMAP 3630 processor (probably at 720 MHz)
The launch, we hear, could be around July. That would be ideal because it could pit the Droid yet again against the iPhone which is expected to launch in June.
