The Motorola Droid 2 has launched, officially ushering in the second generation of high-end Android devices. The original Droid was Android's first big seller, and hopes are high for its sequel. Adobe is certainly throwing their support behind it. They've recently posted a page bragging that the D2 is the first smartphone with out-of-the-box Flash 10.1.
If that doesn't signal the end of one era and the start of another, I don't know what does. We've waited so long for Flash 10.1 that it almost felt like vaporware. Now though, the whole of the Internet is open to Android users.
The Evo and the Desire already have Flash, and the HTC Incredible, Samsung Galaxy S, Motorola Milestone, and Droid X are set to get it in the coming weeks.
The Droid 2 has a 1 GHz processor, 3.7" display, improved sliding keyboard, 5 MP camera, 8 GB of on-board storage and the ability to accept a 32 GB microSD card. It can act as a 3G hotspot for up to 5 other devices for an extra $20 / month.
