Motorola Droid 2 Cases Rock Up at Best Buy, But Where's the Phone?

Illustration for article titled Motorola Droid 2 Cases Rock Up at Best Buy, But Where's the Phone?

An employee at Best Buy Mobile spotted these suspicious cases in a new delivery, and whaddya know—they're emblazoned with the product name of Motorola's much-hyped Droid 2.

Rocketfish makes accessories for phones, gaming products, and home theater and audio kit, so it's pretty likely that if they've pushed "go" on the delivery of some new cases for an upcoming phone they've been privy to receiving the measurements of, then there's a good chance that slide-out-qwerty phone will be on shelves soon. Just in case you were still wondering about that touted August 12th on-sale date.

The Droid 2 is expected to have Froyo straight away, but other than that it's all looking pretty similar to last year's Droid—except for the 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. [Thanks, Justin M!]

I'm going to be honest, I am disappointed in the Droid 2. It just doesn't seem right. It looks the same as the original, except it abandons its stand out looks and adds a cheap plasticy look. I can honestly say, I think the original droid looks way better.

They should have made the Droid 2 the Droid X, just with a physical slide out keyboard and a flat back (compared to the X's tumor) and made to look similar to the original droid.

Instead, it just looks like the same old Droid, just cheaper and more LG-ish.
