Droid 2 Joins Droid X, HTC Incredible, in Verizon Line

The Droid 2 is a highly anticipated new Android device from Verizon and Motorola, brushing up on the original Droid.
Droid 2 features a new "symmetrical keyboard with raised keys for more responsive typing," according to Verizon. Android 2.2 will keep the device humming.
Motorola Droid X
The Motorola Droid X is the ultimate multimedia handset, featuring a 4.3-inch screen.
Droid X Camera
Remember when 5 megapixel cameras were a big deal late last year? The Droid X camera is an 8-megapixel wonder, snapping crisp photos and video. Droid X also sports 720p video capture/HDMI output.
The Droid X also serves as a mini wireless hub, connecting up to five WiFi-enabled devices. Now the Droid 2 also has this capability. It will cost users $20 extra per month.
The HTC Droid Incredible sports a 3.7-inch screen in a slim form factor that resembles Apple's iPhone.
Voice search is a popular capability on the Droid devices. See it here on the Incredible.
The original Droid shocked people with its heft, weighing six and a half ounces. The Droid 2 has the same build with some cosmetic differences. Walt Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal and David Pogue from The New York Times offered mixed reviews of the device.
The Droid and Droid 2 both boast modest 5 megapixel cameras. With the Droid getting the Android 2.2 upgrade last week, both devices have the same OS.
HTC Droid Eris
The HTC Droid Eris features a 3.2-inch capacitive touch screen and trackball interface. It weighs 4.23 ounces, feeling light in the hand, and measures 4.4 inches tall by 2.19 inches wide by 0.51 inches deep.
Like its Motorola Droid brother, the HTC Droid Eris features a 5 megapixel camera.
