Video Daily: The Motorola Droid 2 AndroidandMe has gotten their hands on the upcoming Motorola Droid 2 and done a full hands-on the device, which is remarkably similar in looks to the original Droid smartphone.
Verizon is set to announce, officially, the new Droid 2 this Wednesday.

Both phones are exactly the same size, shape and weight, and use the same battery, and the only cosmetic difference is a slightly redesigned keyboard. The keys are raised and the directional pad is gone.

Color-wise, the phone is dark blue with silver trim.

Under the hood is a powerful 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor, one that uses a 45nm production process, resulted in smaller transistors which suck up less power during daily use.

In addition to the higher clock speed, the new OMAP3630 is one of the first mobile platforms to use a 45nm production process (vs 65nm of the OMAP3430). The shrink in size results in smaller transistors which consume less power.

Additionally, the phone has 512MB RAM, leading to increased benchmark speeds. The phone is expected to ship with Android 2.2 Froyo.
