An iFixit teardown of the Motorola Droid 2 smartphone found improvements where they were warranted and the better bits of the original Droid left exactly as they were. "Motorola certainly took the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' route," wrote iFixit.com, which performed the disassembly Aug. 12, the day the device debuted on the Verizon Wireless network for $199. Like its predecessor, the Droid 2 features a full WVGA 3.7-inch display. However, its keyboard has been updated; it runs Android 2.2, versus the 2.0 OS on the Droid; its battery, while the same, offers more go time; and its WiFi capabilities now include 802.11n. With the new-and-improved Droid 2 now available, Motorola will reportedly discontinue production of the original Droid. (Photos courtesy of iFixit.com)
