Verizon summer 20101 catalog

Verizon's summer 2010 catalog has been leaked out, and yes, that's a picture of the upcoming Motorola Droid 2 you see above.  Also included are the Droid X, the HTC Droid Incredible, and the LG Ally -- phones we're already familiar with.  What's glaringly absent is the Samsung Fascinate, but don't read too much into that just yet.  Listed specs for the Droid 2 are pretty much what was already speculated -- 512MB RAM/8 GB ROM, 1 GHz processor, EVDO rev A, 5 megapixel camera, and an 8GB microSD card included.  Listed as 'coming soon' there's no clue about release dates unfortunately.  Hit the jump for another pic of interest to us Android fans, and you can find the full catalog at the source link.  [BGR]

droid x and 2 is looking sexy!

MowDownJoe says:

At least I won't feel too jealous over the Droid 2 compared to my original Droid. Can't say the same compared to the X.
Although 8 gigs of App Storage is INSANE! You won't need that much unless you root and use MetaMorph extensively. And good luck trying to root the Droid 2. Probably has the same "TripWire"-type security as the Droid X that bricks your phone if it detects a different bootloader than what comes with it.

I wonder why they put Bejeweled on the screenshot. Don't they know that Android is for porn?

gbhil#AC says:

more importantly -- bejeweled is a flash game.

flash means froyo. Wonder if we can read anything into that one lol

dcreed says:

They could've shown porn and you're worried about Froyo?

eyesparky says:

I wonder when European versions of these Droids will start hitting ... actually scratch that, it will only end up costing me lots of money ;).

gbhil#AC says:

If the rumors about using an e-fuse as a permanent deterrent to modification are true, I don't see these hitting Europe ever.

Europa cares too much about users and owners rights to allow it.

hotkoko says:

droid 2 will be the same as droid 1. really no point in getting one

thebizz says:

If you have the Droid one and decide to get this or the x. I would keep my Droid around especially with the locked down bootloaders

jer85008 says:

Something doesn't add up here.

It says the Droid X is coming soon, but Verizon has confirmed a July 15 launch.

Unless this comes out by tomorrow, it's incorrect.

Or, a draft version.
If so, the pic of the Droid 2 could be fake.

teckels says:

does this mean no htc bee/aria? or could it be like the samsung? am i the only person that cares about that phone?

MowDownJoe says:

The Aria's on AT&T, not Verizon.
BTW, I just noticed... LOL at them listing the Kin as a smartphone! It's a featurephone at best, and there's a reason Microsoft has given up on it.

gujupmp88 says:

well, you need the smartphone data plan, so i suppose it can be listed as a smartphone. although anyone that is remotely informed will say otherwise.

Aria? Isn't that at&t?

teckels says:

htc bee and aria were both rumored to be coming out, modeled as same phone. aria for att, bee for verizon. sorry for throwing this off topic.

dsignori says:


Man , this complete blanketing of info about this phone on VZW is becoming utterly maddening. I know Phil said not to read too much into it, but it's hard not to when there is literally ZERO information publicly available about a VZW launch, pricing, etc, etc.

gbhil#AC says:

Yeah, but it's expected too. VzW wants to pump their Droid line from Moto for a while, so you won't see any mention of the FasTcinate for a while I think.
