If you are shopping for a new Droid phone and you happen to find yourself hovering your mouse over the original Droid 2 on Verizon’s website, you may be in for a surprise. As you can see in the shot above, the phone is listed as having a 1.2GHz processor which is currently only available in the new and still unannounced Droid 2 Global. Our first thought was, “Will an update clock the D2’s OMAP up to 1.2GHz?” I mean after all, the DX, D2 and D2G all run th exact same processor, but for whatever reason Motorola decided to pump the global version up a little. The answer is “maybe”, but not something we should all hold our breath for.
What discounts this whole idea though, is the fact that the little hovering action also displays a “Global Capacity” highlight which we all know is false. The original D2 definitely doesn’t have a GSM radio in it.
How long before this gets fixed?
