Review: Motorola Droid 2
Messaging on the Motorola Droid 2 works well, with plenty of options on board. On Android phones, there are Google services, and then there is the rest of the universe. Gmail and Google Talk get their own apps. Gmail is the best e-mail experience on this phone, and Talk is the only IM option available out of the box. There are plenty more available for free and paid download from the Google App Market. If Gmail is not your preferred e-mail client, there is an e-mail app for all other POP3 and IMAP4 services. You don't get the labels or the conversational view of the Gmail client, but it should do the trick for your Exchange or Yahoo needs.
Text messaging worked well on the Motorola Droid 2. Messages are presented in a colorful, threaded format to keep track of entire conversations. You can easily attach pictures, sounds and videos to outgoing MMS messages, and incoming pics show up in line with the threaded conversation view.
