Rumor: DROID 2 Out in Favor of DROID 2 Global?

Recent purchasers of the Droid 2 might want to skip by this article; it might ruin your weekend.  A sneaky little rumor just surfaced from BGR which shows a shot of the current Droid lineup on Verizon only with some choice words listed specifically under the D2.  As you can see above, the words “while supplies last” are clearly displayed and that’s not a good sign for a device that’s been out for about a month.  Would Big Red really drop a device just a few months after it arrives?  I  guess they did decide to skip the whole promotional tour for it and maybe we should have taken that as a pretty big hint?

We know that there is a Droid 2 Global coming out at some point this year which should have a couple of upgraded specs, but why would VZW even release the original D2 knowing that it had a short 3-4 month lifespan?  And you thought Eris owners were pissed at this morning’s news.

Droid 2 owner thoughts?

    On the droid global 2 how do you find an address and the name and history of a building or property when you walk down the street and stop and look a structure

    maybe verizon realized this phone is the peice of crap that it really is? it's more like a droid 1.3 then a droid2

  • magdroid

    I don't travel globally, so I am not pissed. They are just re-releasing the phone with a feature that I will not be using.

    or maybe that “while supplies last” was meant for the r2d2 special edition…..

    It seems the carriers have understood the words 'not buy 1st Gen phones' seems we D2 owners have been put into this same category, to explain, I'm preparing for a vacation & to bring a gsm phone I either have to use a 'loaner' from red or have to buy “another” phone. I'm not happy with this at all. No, I'm not a D1 owner.

      Utilize the WFG. Return the D2 and go get a global phone or wait for the D2 global. WFG = 30 days to return without being stuck with the same model for 12-20 months (dependent on your plan).

    Oh for fuck's sake, it's not going anywhere.
