The Droid 2 is finally official, and Verizon has already opened up their site for pre-orders of the Droid 2. Motorola also released a video showing off the Droid 2. In addition, Motorola also said that there will be an R2D2 version of the phone, and according to AndroidandMe, the phone will go onsale on September 30th, and only online.
Android Central writes that the phone, which sells for $199 with a new two year contract, is available for preorder from the Verizon site here:
Waking up to a bit of weirdness this morning as the Motorola Droid 2 -- which officially is available for presale today at Verizon for $199 on contract -- appears to actually be available for purchase online. Not sure how much of a difference that makes considering you'll have to wait for it to be shipped, but there you go.
AndroidGuys notes that Verizon is doing the same upgrade scheme "they did for the Droid X a few weeks back, Verizon is letting customers who have contracts ending by December 31, 2010 upgrade to the DROID 2 (or any smart phone)."
Check out the video below featuring the Droid 2:
AndroidandMe has some advice for those interested in the R2D2 variant of the Droid 2:
If you are interested in scoring a R2-D2 Droid 2 then make sure you keep an eye on the @DroidLanding Twitter account because it was mentioned on the teaser site and we have a feeling Verizon might be giving away a couple more free phones.
