Droid-Life.com has managed to get its hands on what appear to be leaked images of a new Verizon-based Motorola Droid handset. It looks pretty similar to the current Motorola Droid except for the keyboard, which seems to make better use of the available space by getting rid of the big gold D pad.
Under the hood, we’ll apparently find Android 2.1 (or 2.2 depending upon when the device ships), 3.7-inch screen (presumably 800×480), 750MHz OMAP CPU, 8GB of internal memory plus an included 8GB microSD card, and a 5-megapixel camera. Droid-Life.com notes that there’s no HDMI port and no front-facing camera, though “a new version of Motoblur which doesn’t appear to be quite as intrusive as the versions we’ve seen on the Devour and Backflip” is apparently in the cards.
If you’re looking for a little more oomph, the Motorola Droid X looks to be on the way to Verizon as well and will reportedly feature an 8-megapixel camera capable of HD video recording, HDMI output, Android 2.2, and a 4.3-inch display.
There’s no launch date available, as all this information is still in the rumor phase, but there’s been some speculation about a Q3 timeframe for both the Droid 2 and the Droid X.
