Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Motorola's Droid 2 has received mostly positive reviews from a variety of sources including the ones summed up here, more or less in order of their approval: Ars Technica, eWEEK, PC Mag, PC World, and Engadget. Reviewers generally loved the new keyboard and disliked the camera and MotoBlur UI, while Engadget encountered connectivity problems.

"Now available for over a week now from Verizon Wireless, Motorola's heir to the original Droid, the Droid 2 does not appear to have suffered yet from shortages. The same cannot be said for the somewhat higher powered, keyboard-free Droid X. Both phones are available for $200 with rebate and contract.

"The Droid 2 is the first phone to ship with Android 2.2 ("Froyo"), and compared to the popular Droid, which is also now available with Froyo, it runs it on a faster 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP3630, the same SoC used by the Droid X. The phone ships with 8GB of internal flash, and an 8GB memory card."
