Verizon Offering Early Upgrade Pricing to Droid 2, Too

Article Comments  27  

Aug 13, 2010, 7:22 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Verizon Wireless has confirmed that it is offering the same early upgrade promotion for the Motorola Droid 2 as it is for the Motorola Droid X. Existing Verizon Wireless customers whose contracts end at any point this year may purchase the Droid 2 at the advertised $199 price, rather than the full retail price. The Droid 2 is a follow-up device to the original Droid. It has an improved keyboard, a faster processor, and comes with Android 2.2 Froyo (including the new Android Voice Actions) preinstalled.

Sync with Outlook

What touch screen phones (if any) sync with Outlook 2007?

Sucks for all the people that bought the first Droid.

Why does a comapny do this? WoW we'll offer you an early upgrade if your contacts ends this year. While the rest of us are left high and dry with old equipment. It's like the original Driod was just a prototype to test the waters and then the real Droid gets release. Damn the Man in Red.

Blackberry -> Droid 2 ? Business Use

I am due for an upgrade on VZW and have had a Blackberry on BES since the beginning of time for business. I am intrigued by the Droid 2 and am || that close to switching to the Droid 2. For any of you who have converted please use this thread to convince me to stay or go... So far I think BBM would be gone (of course) as would really good messaging support using BES (of course). But does messaging work well on D2 or is it still that dial and wait crap like the Palm and iPhone? Or is it always on like BB. Are the things you could do very easily with the keyboard still pretty easy or do you have to navigate lots of touch screen complicated menus to get something simple done. Calls ok? Switching and sliding a real hassle? Any thoughts w...
Your best bet would be to switch to att and get a BB Torch, it's definately off the chains.
The Android OS is an excellent piece of software. I had BB phones prior to Android and I've never looked back. Like anything, you have to learn some things because it's night and day between how the two operate (and not in a bad way). The Droid was th...
RIM encryption is top notch and you can be sure your wireless life is secure. Why do you think the insane Saudi Government shut down part of RIM service? Now they are pressing RIM to ease up on security so they can monitor things. Look at the recent s...
Cguella, it doesn't that anyone addressed your direct questions as of yet; there has been only a smattering of phone comparisons. Let me see if I can help.

Yes, with the Android service BBM is lost. With an unlimited text package, which most smar...

Nothing special...

This offer is for any smartphone if you don't currently have one and if your contract ends this year. Its also not that big of a special now. You can already upgrade at 20 months which is four months before your contract ends. On september 1st everyones contract that ends this year will be eligible anyway.
My wife and I have originL droids. ContrCt is up december 2011...does that mean we qualify? Or only if u don't already have a smartphone?

Blah Blah

I wish this Droid 2 had a front facing camera. I know I said this before. Waste of Plastic. I guess I'll have to wait for the Droid 3 to switch back to Big Red. Eh?
Flip Mode,

Personally, I don't have an attraction to a front-facing camera. I don't want people to see my ugly mug! It may scare them off the phone! However, you may not have to wait long to get your wish.

Both of the tablets in testing/devel...
