Motorola has had an extremely successful outing with the Droid. Now the company is gearing itself up for the launch of the second generation of their Android smartphone – named Droid 2. According to sources, Verizon Droid 2 shall be launching in the American market on August 23.
Take this speculation with a grain of salt for the moment. August 23 happens to be a Monday and really not the ideal time to launch a phone. Nevertheless, an August launch of the new Motorola phone was always on the cards.
Motorola Droid 2 is expected to launch on Android 2.2. However, there is no confirmation on that. Motorola is learned to be fighting against time to bring Froyo to the next generation Droid phone. In the event that does not happen, users will have to wait for an OTA update to update from Android 2.1 to 2.2 at a later date.
