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.
Rumors are doing the rounds that Verizon is mulling over a proposal to discontinue its sale of the new Motorola Droid 2 that was released just last month and instead replace it with the upcoming Droid 2 World Edition in its stores. Logistically, it is a sane move considering the cost involved in managing additional models. But it is also likely that Verizon continues to sell the older Droid 2 lest it will rub the early adopters the wrong way.
Details about the upcoming Motorola Droid 2 World edition have not been comprehensive though we do know that this is a world-ready phone with both CDMA and GSM capabilities. In addition to the blue/black units, the handset is also likely to be sold in white. Rumors also point out that Droid 2 World Edition is the same as Droid Pro which is another handset that has made some noise in the past.
Despite all this, do note that this is all in the rumor mills and may turn out to be a false alarm.
