Motorola Droid 2 Training Guide Leaked, Still Needs to be Announced

Okay, so we get it. The Droid 2 is real, it exists somewhere outside of our collective imaginations, and it's coming to Verizon. Eventually. Some day, it's coming. And, just as we saw with the official user manual of the device last week, we get to see the full details of the upcoming smartphone well before Verizon has actually officially said anything about the device's existence.

Motorola Droid 2 Coming August 12th?

It's the end of July, and August is literally right around the corner. One of the things we're looking forward to the most is the Droid 2, and finally getting some official photography taken of the device. Plus, our hands-on time (that should be obvious). The release date of the device has been one of the best kept secrets within Verizon since its debut months ago, but now it looks like a recent leak from a Verizon internal screen shot shows the details of the Droid 2 release, but thanks to a couple of tips that we received, along with tips sent to Droid-Life, that rumored August 12th date is still standing firm.

Motorola Droid 2 Cases Showing Up at Best Buy

We all know that the Droid 2 is coming. And, we're all pretty much certain that the Droid 2 is coming next month. And it looks like folks at Best Buy may be under the same impression, too. Though, we're curious if someone, somewhere, who has anything to do with the merchandise being placed out there, has any idea (officially) when the Droid 2 will actually get released. We'd like very much to talk to that person, or persons.

Motorola Droid 2 User Manual Gets Leaked

The Droid 2 from Motorola isn't supposed to hit retail shelves until some time in August, but that's not stopping some clever person from sending out the user manual to the next member of the Droid lineage. And thankfully, it actually shows us things that we were curious about before, and confirms a few rumors we had heard in the past. With that in mind, let's dig in.

Motorola Droid 2 Launching With Android 2.2, Spy Shots Suggest

Okay, today's getting ridiculous. Apparently now that the Droid X is out, the Droid 2 is trying to make up for some lost time in the spotlight. So, right on the heels of seeing a freshly leaked image of the Droid 2 running Android 2.2 in its Settings screen, we get this spy-shot of an internal Verizon system. What's it say? Well, you guessed it: The Droid 2 will launch with Android 2.2.

Motorola Droid 2 Gets Photographed with Android 2.2

Unlike major phone leaks before the Droid 2, there weren't that many questions left to be unanswered by the time the leaked images started making their way onto the Internet. However, with the Droid 2, that's the complete opposite. As it stands right now, more and more questions keep popping up as more images of this future device make the scene. This time, we get a few more answers, but at the same time, a few of the same questions remain.

Droid 2 Packaging Gets Spied, August 23 the Rumored Launch

So, the Droid X just launched. But, there's plenty of folks out there that are eagerly anticipating the official launch of the Droid 2, the true successor to the original Droid that hit Verizon's airwaves only a few months back. With that being said, those of you out there should be pretty excited to see some remarkably blurry images of a packaging facility handling the handset.

Motorola bootloader could brick ROM-tampered phones

When we wrote yesterday about Motorola's confirmation that the DROID X, DROID 2 and - most likely - all future Android handsets from the company would come with a locked bootloader and thus make hacking pretty difficult, we didn't realise quite how difficult it would actually be.  According to MyDroidWorld, Motorola's locking system uses a so-called eFuse chip that verifies the handset's firmware (i.e. the ROM), the kernel and the bootloader version.  If it detects that a non-Motorola ROM has been loaded, then that's when the problem starts. If any of those three elements have been modified unofficially, the eFuse "blows" and the handset is bricked to the user.  Now, the eFuse can be reset but that can apparently only be done with specialist hardware that Motorola themselves had; in other words, you'll have to test quite how happy the company is with you loading third-party ROMs and then trying to claim under their warranty.  Considering yesterday's information, we're guessing Not Happy At All is the answer.

Leaked Verizon Catalog Showcases Droid 2 and Droid X

Well, how long has it been since our last leaked document? Not long, right? Then that means it's just about perfect timing to get our hands on yet another one. Thanks to a tipster sending in some leaked documents of a Summer device catalog, we get the first look at a Droid 2 standing front and center (well, behind a Droid X), showcasing its shiny frame, and, oddly enough, Bejeweled.
