DROID 2 Units Appearing in Verizon Inventory (Updated)

Still no “official” date from the Verizon camp, but we now know that warehouses are seeing big time stock arrivals of the Droid 2 which is set to launch this Thursday.  That number (6,610) seems a little low, but our sources fully expect that number to spike within the next day or two.  People love keyboards and the D2′s updated version should be quite appealing to those with fat fingers…err that like…physical buttons.

Update 2:17PM:  It looks like D2 units are cruising into warehouses on an hourly basis.  We’re now seeing double the numbers from this morning…

It still seems so odd that Verizon would get to 3 days before the release of a major device like this and still not confirm it with any media outlet.  Oh well, it’ll be a hit anyway.

    i was going to buy this until the verizon roadmap showed a 'droid pro' coming in november, and it might be a world phone.

    You won't go wrong with either device. I personally have the X and LOVE it. X has bigger screen, Higher Megapixel camera (8 v 5) a 16 GB SD card vs an 8. The D2 has the slider keyboard. I wouldn't really worry too much about the OS as the X will get the OTA somewhat soon (Sept) and they'll be the same. WIth both devices running 1 GHz, I think for a lot of people it comes down to the whether or not you like/must have the slider keyboard. I don't. And I love the real estate on the juicy 4.3″ screen.

    “fat fingers” LOL! I usually refer to them as “chingers” (chubby fingers)

  • Gochin

    guys. iv gotta question here. i want to get a d2, and im still confused.
    i use hotmail.. can the droid push emails from hotmail.. or do i have to go into the internet every time to check on hotmail.com. how does that work?
    Thanks

      You can sync hotmail with your droid i have my hotmail account synced with both my droid and my droid x

  • Blewis1041

    1st time Android convert. Considering the Droid 2 or the Droid X. Seems like the biggest benefit D2 has over the X right now is the latest OS, which will obviously be a disappearing benefit. Any thoughts?

    • Droidzilla

      That and the physical keyboard. Honestly, though, I haven't pulled out the slider on my OG Droid since I got Swype. The only reason for it now is for Nintendo emulators, but with the Wiimote controller app, even that benefit is gone.

      I'd say go with the Droid X or the Samsung Fascinate coming out soon.

        I don't even use swype, and I don't use the physical keyboard. I used to hate OSD's too. Not anymore!

    I would like 1 unit of Droid 2 in my inventory. However, I prefer my $599 in the bank.

    Still waiting for the “real” Droid 2… 2GHz that is.

      I am with you

    • PyroHoltz

      Agreed, a swap from my D1 to a D2 wouldn't be bad(except for the motoTurd) but I wouldn't purchase it.

      Seriously, I think we need a poll, who is seriously looking to upgrade to this device from a D1, hopefully not many? A new user from something less capable, sure.

    • 1bad69z28

      Iam right wit you Brother.

      • http://twitter.com/el_chino1988 El Chino

        I got my Droid 1 about a week ago, since I am still under the 30 days to return it, should I return it and get the D2? Thanks in advance!

        • 1bad69z28

          I have the D1 too but rooted. I am on the fence as well, will have to
          check it out once it in the stores then make a decison once someone has it
          rooted. I am still waiting on the 2GHZ phone hopefully to come out later
          this year.

  • Jmiranda3983

    saw a guy on droidforums.net say that he showed them the droid upgrade flyer he got a while back and they said the X is on back order along with the Incredible but the rep told him that the droid arrives in store on the 12th.
