Verizon customers will soon be able to purchase the Droid 2 Global edition, which adds GSM support so the phone can still function in other countries. Motorola will also bump the CPU speed up to 1.2 GHz, which will make this one of the fastest Android phones when it becomes available.
No launch date has been announced yet, but Verizon just lowered the original Droid 2 to $150 and Best Buy has already discontinued that model. Verizon is launching the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Continuum on November 11th, so that could also be the date we see the Droid 2 Global.
When it comes to network support the Droid 2 Global sports dual band CDMA, quad band GSM, and tri band UMTS. That means your phone will be able to connect to over 200 countries from around the globe. Verizon’s upcoming HTC Merge is also expected to have global support.
Other features of the Droid 2 Global include multiple color options including Dark Sapphire and Winter White (pictured above), remote wipe of device and SD card, and inbox filtering.
