Motorola Droid 2 Global

The as-yet unannounced Droid 2 Global has sneaked onto Motorola's website. If the specs are correct, we're looking at the fastest official processor an Android phone has seen thus far. 

From Motorola's website:

The Droid 2 Global is the latest work/play phone powered by Android 2.2. A 1.2 GHz processor and Quad Band capabilities allow calls to over 200 countries, and texting  on a redesigned QWERTY keyboard. Business ready security lets you cross the globe with confidence and speed.

This device is very likely to be sporting the same hardware as the Droid 2 (and Droid X), just with global options and a 1.2GHz processor and 5MP camera an dual flash.  Android 2.2 is also there (natch), as is Swype, a 1420 mAh battery, Wifi b/g/n.

Note that this preview page could very well be a placeholder and the specs could change. Needless-to-say though, this device excites us and travelers who have been longing for a high-end world phone on Verizon. [Motorola, Phone Scoop] Thanks, Cesar!

Update: Yeah. These are pretty much the same specs as the recently announced Motorola Droid Pro. See for yourself here. It's possible that it's really a 3.1-inch device with a 320x480 touchscreen, but we're not betting on it. Still, that's a pretty good sign that the Droid 2 Global is coming, folks.

Update 2: And ... the Droid 2 Global page is down. Again, we're pretty sure this was just a quickie placeholder that nobody was meant to see, thus the confusion in screen size. But let's hope that processor is still real.
