I am wondering if it won't be soon. Both walmart.com and wirefly.com are selling the D2 for $49.99 right now if you do a 2 year upgrade. For that price I don't think I am going to wait for the World Edition. I don't travel.
At this time there is no information available regarding any world edition unfortunately. However you can sign up for email updates under our support tab to know about all upcoming updates.
I just had a chat with an online agent and they told me that the Droid 2 is being phased out and it is available only online right now. They said currently there is no replacement.
Sales Rep: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
Me: ...I have a question about the Droid 2.
Me: Is it being phased out already?
Sales Rep: Yes it is.
Sales Rep: It only available online right now.
Me: Is there a replacement? And do you have a reason for the short life span?
Sales Rep: I'm sorry but we have no replacements.
That was copied from our chat log. I replaced the names.
Well I guess no one knows what is going on. I called my local corporate store last night and they still had the D2. They told me it wasn't on phase out.
I also was told by VZW that the R2D2 Droid 2 was available for pre-order online today. That is also a lie because I can't find it.
So I guess they don't even know what is going on. Good luck in finding the world edition.
