Hands-On With The Droid 2
Droid 2 release day is finally here. The update to Motorola’s ultra-popular Droid phone has a better processor than its predecessor and sports a snazzy facelift. Where the original was a bit boxy and businesslike, the Droid 2 softens the edges and jazzes up the interface. Plus it’s got Android 2.2 right out of the box.
Things we like so far about the Droid 2:
- Much better keyboard. If the keys and tactile feedback bothered you before, definitely give the Droid 2 a spin. Not only are the keys bigger, but pressing them is easier, even if you have fingernails.
- Elegant design elements. It still looks like a Droid, but curvier.
- MotoMagic. The same UI we saw on the Droid X makes an appearance on the Droid 2 as well.
