The device runs an Android operating system by Google, and is also capable of running Flash Player 10.1 from Adobe. It comes pre-loaded with 8GB of internal memory and is shipped with an additional 8GB SDHC card, upgradeable to 32GB.

Unlike the Droid X, the Motorola Droid 2 features a redesigned physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but still features the Swype keyboard found on the Droid X. A limited edition version featuring Star Wars character R2D2 will become available in September. Jon Rettinger takes a review of the device.
