For those of you who have yet to upgrade your original Motorola Droid, now might be the time. It seems as though Verizon Wireless has dropped the price of the Motorola Droid 2 to $149.99 with a 2 yr contract to seemingly make room for the the Global version of this device which is dropping soon. The Global edition Droid 2 will be offered for $199.99 with a 2 year agreement for those of you that are looking for the Global capabilities, but do you think this was the greatest move by Verizon? It has been less than 3 months that the Droid 2 has been on the market and already we are seeing a price drop? I understand this is to make way for the newest edition which has Global capabilities, but we also know that these devices have already seen a leak of a scheduled end of life for March 31st of 2011. In this ever changing Smart-phone market it is becoming more and more certain that the next best thing is always right around the corner.

Oh, Droid 2. We hardly knew ye. You were only on the market for two and a half months before a better model came along and stole all of your glory. And now your value’s being depreciated to $50 less than what you originally debuted at.
Let’s try that again without trying to sound dramatic: the Droid 2 – as we know it – has seen a price drop. If you’re not interested in world roaming capabilities and you thought $200 was too much to pay for an upgrade to the successor to the original Droid, now’s your chance to get the phone for $150. The Droid 2 Global will be $200 for those of you wandering about the Earth beyond the United States, so hold on to your change as we should be seeing it fly into stores very soon.
