The successor to the original Motorola Droid has been spotted and images has been extracted from a Flash file from a teaser site. According to Engadget Mobile, “Astute reader Dominic was just minding his business, hunting for hints in the Droid Does website source code, when what should he allegedly discover but an entire Droid 2 spread inside an Shockwave Flash file.”
The Droid 2 will be a Verizon Wireless device with the official model number of A955 and it’s unclear if there will be a GSM version for the international market. With the original Droid, Motorola made a GSM variant called the Motorola Milestone for use in other countries where Verizon Wireless did not have an exclusive.
Unlike the Droid X, which has a higher-specced 8-megapixel camera, larger screen, and no keyboard, the Droid 2 will retain the original QWERTY sliding design of the original Droid, will come with a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, and a more compact screen design; the original Droid has a 3.7-inch FWVGA 16:9 aspect ratio display.
