Information leaking out of a national retailer has revealed the price for the Motorola Droid 2 Global, which is expected to be on the market very soon.

The main difference between the current Droid 2 and the upcoming Global version will apparently be support for both Verizon’s CDMA/EV-DO network in the United States and the GSM/HSPA networks that are available in most other countries.

In addition, the new model is supposedly going to run Android OS 2.2 on a 1.2 GHz processor, while the original Droid 2 has a 1 GHz processor.

Aside from these changes, though, the Droid 2 Global will be very similar to its predecessor. This means the Verizon smartphone is going to be a slider with a 3.7-inch WVGA display and a landscape-oriented keyboard.
