Back in November of last year, Verizon Wireless rolled out the Droid, a smartphone manufactured by Motorola and powered by Google's Android operating system. Verizon – helped out by a major-league advertising blitz – reportedly sold 250,000 Droid handsets in the first week of sales alone. And after 74 days, it had surpassed the original iPhone launch. Very impressive.

Now Verizon is set to release the Droid 2, essentially a beefed-up Droid, with an improved keyboard, the Android 2.2 Froyo OS, and a snappier processor. According to Wired, the Motorola Droid 2 will likely retail for $200 with a 2-year contract, which is more or less on par with previous Droid offerings. Expect the Droid 2 to be available by the end of the week.
