The tablet pictured above is a prototype tablet from Quanta, in case you were wondering.

Labels: , , , , ,

Thanks to Android and Me, we now have the Motorola DROID 2 (headed to Verizon) in its first video - even though it's pretty blue. The DROID 2 looks pretty identical to the original DROID, but there are some slight differences. Inside you'll find a 1GHz TI OMAP3630 CPU and 512MB of RAM. Of course, the QWERTY keyboard is a bit different as well. It's still sporting the same 3.7-inch display along with a 5MP camera so that's still great. Anyways, check out the video below.
