No great surprise, given Verizon told us it would be happening yesterday, but Motorola’s DROID 2 Android smartphone has gone up for sale on the carrier’s site. Priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement, the Android 2.2 handset has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3.7-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, and WiFi.
That assumes you’re willing to sign up to a two-year agreement, but at least you’ll get the $100 discount online rather than having to send off a mail-in rebate form if you pick up a DROID 2 in-store tomorrow. Happily Verizon has left the 3G mobile hotspot functionality of Android 2.2 in place, meaning you can share the smartphone’s EVDO Rev.A connection with up to five WiFi-tethered clients.
In the box there’s an 8GB microSD card, which augments the DROID 2’s existing 8GB of internal storage, and Verizon will be offering car and desk docks just as with the original DROID.
