Pics of Motorola Droid 2 Smartphone Appear Online

Engadget has managed to grab a couple of pictures of the soon-to-come Motorola Droid 2 handset which will be available in the US on Verizon Wireless, possibly as from next month.

The device looks similar to the previous flagship Motorola handset, the Milestone, and has four rows of keys plus four touch sensitive keys on its screen.

Previous pictures coming out of Engadget (opens in new tab) showed that the device would come with a 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor (no Qualcomm Snapdragon here), 512MB RAM, a 3.7-inch touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera with flash and possibly Android 2.1.

Engadget (opens in new tab) also revealed that a Blackberry Storm 3 and a Curve 3 may well be in the offing with both very likely to be variants of existing products rather than completely new products.

The news outlet's source has also confirmed that a 10.1-inch tablet will be available on Verizon Wireless soon, possibly based on Android although it may well be another Blackberry product.
