There has been much anticipation regarding the Unlocked Motorola Milestone ( Droid 2) . But rumors are rife that the Droid 2 will be hitting the shelves on August 23rd, and will be shipping in with the Android 2.2 (Froyo) out of the box.
This will be the first device in the United States to actually come shipped with the Froyo. The Droid X will receive the Froyo, likely in August. If Motorola can get the Froyo running on the Droid X, then getting it to run successfully on the Droid 2 should not pose much of a problem. This could be an indication that the software will be released for other devices as well, in the near future. The Droid X will be receiving the Froyo update this August. Moreover, if Motorola can get Froyo to run on the Droid X with its custom skin, it would be an easy task for Motorola to get Froyo on a stock Android device.
But there is speculation whether the timing for introducing the Droid 2 is healthy for the Droid X’s market. The introduction of the Droid 2 can very possibly steer people away from the Motorola's Unlocked Milestone Droid (X). But some people are of the opinion that the majority will wait for the Droid X, and not opt for the Droid 2.
The most significant difference between the two handsets is their software. But other than this, the Droid 2 has a QWERTY keyboard. On top of that, the Droid 2 will receive its software updates before the Droid X. So, these are the places where the Droid 2 beats the Droid X. But if people are looking for an entertainment device, then they should opt for the Droid X.
There’s much speculation over everything; so, its better that people wait and hopefully, the Droid 2 will come out on 23rd August. People will then know for sure which one is better- the Droid 2 or Droid X.
