  1. Hey,

    Just a few clarifications. The DROID 2 Global is a smartphone sold by Verizon in the US (CDMA), that also has a GSM-based SIM slot for International roaming.

    Just wondering about when, where and how this phone has been released in India. I've checked Motorola India's website, and the flipkart.com website – no signs of the Droid 2 Global phone.

    Further, if such a phone is released in India (called the Milestone 2 or something) then wouldn't be priced at Rs. 25,000/- or higher? Please let me know where this phone could be purchased in India for Rs. 25,000.

    Thanks!

    Dan.

      Hi Daniel!

      It is just released, You'll see this smartphone's launch news on various news websites in coming days! And it is priced in India at Rs. 15000 (according to the reports). Stay Tuned@ We'll let you know when further details will be available.

      • It's a little dubious to be suggesting that the phone has been released, when there has been no official word from Motorola. Could you point me towards an official source/PR for the release and the price information?

        Thanks!

    @ Team TechClap.com,

    I have been waiting for the launch of Motorola Droid 2 ( Global Edition ) for quite some time now and have been Googling it quite often.

    Neither I can deny nor I can support that Motorola Droid 2 has been launched in India till there is any official confirmation.

    However as far as price is concerned I am damn sure that it cann't be priced at 15,000 INR. According to me ( from taking cue of it price in US & UK ) it will be priced in range of 25,000 – 30,000.

    One more logic to conclude above price range is that the previous version of Andriod phones from Motorola launched in India viz. Milestone & Milestone XT720 are priced over 20,000. Motorola Droid 2 is running on Froyo and have many updated features so it will come with a price tag for sure.

    P.S: As per Univercell the approximate price in India will be around 30,000.
