Droid 2: reception problems reported

It looks like Motorola’s update of it’s Android handset, Droid 2, is suffering from reception problems. It isn’t a case of the iphone 4 Antennagate (yet). The orginial Motorola Droid, released in 2009 was aimed as an iPhone-beating handset. Technically it certainly had some strengths, but it also had one big weakness: it wasn’t an iPhone. The Droid 2, available on the US Verizon network intended to up the stakes. However a number of reviewers have reported widely fluctating signal strengths, for example 4 out of the 5 units tested by Engadget saw such problems. It’s early days though, and it far from the situation that Apple experienced during Antennagate.
