Motorola Droid 2 from Verizon Almost Here

The Motorola Droid 2, the first Motorola phone to run on Google’s “Froyo” the friendly name for the Android 2.2 operating system is set to launch in August.

The Droid 2 will be the follow-up to the original Droid, which was released in October 2009 and marketed as an alternative to the Apple iPhone. The original Droid and the Droid X, just released a week ago, have been sales successes, although not as wildly hot as the iPhone.

The Droid 2 will have a virtual keyboard, 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1GHz processor and more. Expect the price of the new phone to be around $200 with a two-year Verizon Wireless service agreement.

If youre a fan of Droid X, this is good news for you. Its considered likely that the Droid X will also get an upgrade to Froyo.

Wireless was a bright spot in Verizons earnings report, released today. Sales of Android handsets were a big reason why.
