Word at DroidLife is that the original Droid is being phased out over the next few weeks (presumably with some promotions coming to help move the last of them off shelves). This is likely in preparation for the coming Droid 2, which is coming sometime in August.

The Droid 2 will be a direct replacement for the original Droid, complete with full slide out QWERTY keyboard (whereas the Droid X has none). Other specs:

  • 5 MP Camera
  • 3G Mobile Hotspot
  • 1 GHz CPU
  • 8 GB onboard memory
  • 8 GB mSD card installed, support for up to 16 GB

While the Droid 2 will still be a high-end phone, it will fall just short of the Droid X. However, given that it comes with a hardware keyboard, many people may still choose it over the X.
