Droid 2 teardown

Whenever a new phone rolls out, one of the first things that gets done (after the hands on video of course) is tearing it apart.  The Droid 2 was no exception, and the guys over at ifixit have done the deed.  A couple things of note they discovered:

  • The Droid 2 has the same battery as the OG Droid, but Motorola says it should last 49 percent longer
  • The 5 MP camera on the Droid 2 shoots at 30 fps, versus 24 fps for the OG Droid
  • The Droid 2  has the same TFT LCD display as the OG Droid
  • I'm going to quote this one, because it's a biggie. "After de-routing the ribbon cable through the slider mechanism, the keyboard can be easily removed from the back of the slider bracket. We believe that you can transplant a Droid 2 keyboard into your old Droid (they look identical internally), but we haven't performed complete compatibility testing yet."

Looks like the Deuce is turning out to be a more significant upgrade from it's predecessor that we all thought.  If the Faster processor and Froyo doesn't seal the deal, maybe the little details do it for you.  [ifixit]
