Droid 2 vs N97

A new Droid device was released and of course I made my way to the nearest Verizon wireless store to check it out.
Here I briefly interacted with the new Droid 2. As a qwerty equipped sliding touchscreen hybrid smartphone, it is in the same category as my current primary smartphone the Nokia N97.
Here is a picture of both devices in their open position.
The Droid 2 is a flat slider while the N97 tilts at an angle when open so the devices look quite different in size even though they are not very different in size when closed.
