It’s got Android 2.2, Adobe Flash 10, a new keyboard, hotspot capabilities and much more. Pricing will be $199.99 after $100 mail-in rebate and of course with a new contract. There’s also a limited edition R2-D2 version of the Droid 2 as well and only available online. it will feature exclusive Star Wars content and external hardware designed to look like R2-D2.

DROID 2’s super-slim design helps customers e-mail, text and tweet with ease. DROID 2 offers a redesigned symmetrical keyboard with raised keys for more responsive typing to push out notes and status updates. Speech-to-text input and the virtual multi-touch keyboard allow for quick messaging; or customers can also use Swype for even easier text input. In addition, full push corporate e-mail delivers enhanced features such as remote wipe and password enforcement so that information remains secure.

DROID 2 packs power and speed.
