The Motorola Droid 2 Global is really turning out to be the worst-kept secret since the Bay of Pigs invasion, isn't it? We've been hearing inklings of it since mid-September, including rumors that the CPU would be clocked at 1.2 GHz.
Now, Droid-Life's legion of tipsters have spotted two more official Verizon documents featuring the Droid 2 Global: a holiday ad featuring the D2G (above), and nothing other than a sheet listing the tech specs.
And quite a nicely-equipped phone it is. Think of it as a beefed up Droid 2, with an alternative color option:
- 1.2 GHz CPU
- 3.7" 854x480 screen
- 5 MP camera with 2 LED flash
- 8 GB ROM, 8 GB microSD included (16 GB total)
- Dark Sapphire or Winter White
Seems a little weird to launch an upgraded product so soon after launching the original, but hey - I suppose they're trying to get a leg up on their competition.

Ever since the Motorola Droid Pro was made official, the rumor mill has been buzzing about a global version of the Droid 2, which was exactly what the Pro was originally rumored to be.
Let's start with a rather suggestive screenshot from Droid Life yesterday:
That's right - Best Buy's reportedly discontinuing the Droid 2 at the time of writing, and now it may be just a matter of time before other retail outlets follow suit.
But fear not - BGR was just told by an "anonymous source" that the Droid 2 won't be entirely dead, for the Droid 2 Global is, apparently, just around the corner.

This was unexpected - Best Buy is offering exclusive preorders on a white version of the HTC EVO 4G, scheduled to arrive in Best Buy stores on July 11th. The white version is going to have the same specs and price of $199 on a 2-year contract. As usual, a $50 deposit in the form of a Best Buy gift card is required.
I am not sure personally that I would like the white version over the black one, but I guess some people expressed desire for one.
How about you guys? Which color do you prefer?
