Droid 2 gets reviewed - the competition
Phil Nickinson from Android Central has done a full review of the Verizon Motorola Droid 2, the second coming of the first Android phone to really rocket into the mainstream. With a big screen, ample app marketplace, full hardware keyboard, and Android 2.2 Froyo, it seems to improve upon the original in every way, even if it now faces stiffer competition from its own sibling on its own network, the Droid X. How does it net out?
If you're coming from another platform, you can't go wrong with the Droid 2. And the same goes if you're comiing from another carrier. If you're already on Verizon? It's a bit of a tougher choice. The Incredible is another solid phone and has the HTC Sense customizations on the same size screen. The Droid X has a larger screen and the same customizations as on the Droid 2. (Anecdotally: We watched on launch day as the second person in our Verizon store -- we were the first -- traded in a Droid X for a Droid 2.)
It will be interesting to see what, if anything, changes in that equation if rumors of a Verizon iPhone 4 pan out this January
