It's been a few months since we've had a Motorola Droid release (at least domestically), but now the Droid X2 has been spotted.

The exterior design isn't much of a departure from any other Droid we've seen, but here's a look at some of the specs:

  • Android 2.2
  • New Motoblur UI
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 4.3-inch qHD LCD display (540 x 960 resolution)
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera
  • FM Radio

The possibility of this smartphone launching (likely in Q2) with Froyo just feels wrong. Hopefully Motorola bumps that up to Gingerbread if it wants any shot at competing with every other handheld we've seen unveiled this year. It's also apparently a 3G-only device, which isn't the end of the world and might be reflected in a lower price tag.

    Needs a front facing camera. Without that it is not a big deal & will not sell well.

    • Dual Core is NOT a Big Deal??? :O

      @tgschmidt ......Go back to bed fool. News is that it's not Froyo like she's reporting anyway. It's Gingerbread and that's obvious from the photos. She really doesn't know what she's talking about and most likely doesn't know the OS differences!!!

    Those screen shots look like Gingerbread already. What was you source for it shipping with Froyo? That seems very unlikely, given your pics.

    No Gingerbread and No purchasers! This is really no different than my Droid X now. I can't believe that it would not be At Least 4G....IMHO this is not good at all.

      @Exit39 Well the dual core Tegra processor does kick the ass of our Snapdragon processors. But I agree. No upgrading without 4G.

    No. I have the X now and that is not enough of a carrot to renew my contract. 3G service here just 20 minutes north of the Twin Cities is crappy at best and I wouldn't even consider upgrading without 4G.

  • Who will have it?

    Without knowing which carriers will offer it, this is pretty much meaningless. I have to stick with Verizon (company plan) so unless they offer it, I don't care about it.
