Look At The Motorola Droid 2

Video and pictures of the hotly-anticipated Motorola Droid 2 have leaked out on the Internet, reaching us via Droid Life.

The images confirm the new phone will keep that physical keyboard (proving there’s life outside of Apple’s focus on touch as the user interface), but the keyboard has been improved, with raised keys and no D-pad (hurrah).

Droid Life tells us to expect WiFi tethering and a 750MHz OMAP processor. You’ll also get improved push-based social networking services — but forget any hope of a front-facing video camera — there isn’t one…

Android 2.2 won’t appear on this device, which features a 5-megapixel camera.

Expectation is really high for the new Droid handset, not least because sales of the original Droid have been hugely impressive since that device launched in November. The Droid sold over 250,000 units in its first week — OK, that’s dwarfed by 1.6 million iPhone 3GS sales on that device’s launch, but you get the picture.

Will Droid 2 match this success? There’s a lot of expectation it will exceed it.
