Droid 2 Global details go live, unexpectedly

After much speculation, Motorola has confirmed that the Droid 2 Global is real, and has posted official technical specs on its website. Although, it appears Motorola didn't want that to happen. A Droid 2 Global site on Motorola.com has been pulled but not before people began spreading the information found therein all across the Internet.

Droid 2 Global details go live, unexpectedly

The device will look just like the Droid 2, except it will pack in a more powerful, 1.2 GHz processor as well as quad-band GSM support. That means it can make calls to and from pretty much anywhere in the world that has cell phone reception.

It'll have Android 2.2 pre-installed, 8 GB of built-in memory, and microSDHC support for total memory capacity of up to 40 GB.

The leak and picture above came from AndroidGuys.com.

It will be sold through Verizon, which normally uses a standard called CDMA, which works great in the US but is useless in other countries. AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM, which is spottier in the US but is a more global standard. The Droid 2 Global will actually be able to make CDMA calls while in the US and GSM calls when a CDMA signal is not available.

Details on price and availability were not available on the now-pulled website.
