Motorola Droid 2 leaked in hands-on video

Looks can be deceiving... It's what's on the inside that counts... and various other clichés

A leaked hands-on video has been doing the rounds on the internet over the weekend showing a new Android 2.1 slider handset, the Motorola Droid 2.

The video (available below) compares the new Motorola Droid 2 to the original Droid handset, showing their near-identical aesthetics. The only noteable physical change being the replacement of the original keyboard’s navigation and arrow buttons with a larger full QWERTY keyboard with raised plastic keys.

Looks aside, the new Droid 2 offers a hefty set of new specs that includes a 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor and 512MB of RAM. Like the original Motorola Droid, the second incarnation will also feature and 3.7-inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel snapper with LED flash.

Expected to be officially announced in the coming weeks, the Motorola Droid 2 currently runs Android 2.1 but is expected to offer a free upgrade to the new Android 2.2, FroYo OS when it hits stores in what is expected to be an August launch.
