    Droid 2 launching August 23rd with Android 2.2

    A source close to Verizon has indicated that the carrier will be launching the Motorola Droid 2 on August 23rd. It would be the first phone to ship with Android 2.2 out of the box.Current test versions of the Droid 2 are still running Android 2.1, but Motorola is working hard to get Android 2.2 finalized.

    The original Droid is expected to see Android 2.2 in late July, and the Droid X will receive the update in August. If Motorola can finish Android 2.2 for the Droid X by August, then there’s no reason that the Droid 2 will not include it at launch. Both phones feature nearly identical hardware inside and the software we saw running on the Droid 2 was the same as the Droid X.

    No pricing details have been released, but look for the Droid 2 to debut around $199 with 2yr contract.
