Pre-sales for the DROID begin today on the Verizon Wireless site, but for those who are on the fence, here’s an early review from the team over at Androidandme. In a nutshell, “the Droid 2 scored 1199 [in a system benchmark], which is the highest we have seen for any phone running Android 2.1; a Nexus One with Android 2.1 scores around 500 in this benchmark.” Video after the break.

For those who are wondering, the Droid X and Droid 2 are essentially the same phone on the inside. You can take all benchmark scores here and apply them to the Droid X. Users give up a physical keyboard when moving to the Droid X, but they do gain the 4.3 inch display, 8 megapixel camera, 720p video capture, and micro HDMI out.
