Droid 2 to ship with Android 2.2 on August 23

A new unofficial report from AndroidandMe has the Droid 2 launching at Verizon on August 23 instead of the previously believed July 19. This delay of sorts would be to have the first handset to ship with Android 2.2 preloaded, as the hardware looks to the finalized thanks to a hands-on review. The early phones were running on Android 2.1, but Motorola is believed to be working on getting Android 2.2 finalized.

Android 2.2 is otherwise expected to become available for the current Droid in late July, with the just-announced Droid X getting it in August. The Droid X and Droid 2 appear to have very similar hardware specs with a 1GHz processor and other related internal parts, although the Droid 2 will have a smaller 3.7-inch screen and a five-megapixel camera.

The Droid 2 could cost $200 with an accompanying two-year contract.

    I love a good laugh first thing in the morning.

    Apple should enjoy the lead the iPhone has... While it lasts.

    Little green robots are coming!
