Despite its age, the Motorola DROID remains one of our favorite Android handsets, and so you can bet we're keen to see the replacement Moto have lined up for Verizon.  According to DroidLife you're looking at the Motorola DROID 2 now; a 3.7-inch touchscreen display like before, 750MHz OMAP processor and a full QWERTY keyboard, but some layout changes that should hopefully make the DROID 2 a little easier to type on.

Either way, we reached out to Motorola, looking for a comment pertaining to future updates to their devices and how that all relates to Android 2.2, or Froyo if you prefer.

While some robots are made to teach you something, or even go easy on your pocket book, this little do it yourself LEGO robot is just about the coolest thing we've seen today.
