for one the voltage required to run DDR2 memory is way lower than DDR.

here's an article with more detail. i hope it's accurate

I too used to think that DDR2 meant higher clock speeds and DDR was somehow limited at around 400MHz until I stumbled across this article:

Title: "OCZ Technology Reaches DDR1-772 at 3-4-4 Timings with nForce4".
http://www.nforcershq.com/article2550.html

So until DDR2 modules reach higher speeds with decent tight timings (and they should pretty soon) I'd say there is no big difference between DDR and DDR2 today except for voltage difference and an increased number of pins for DDR2).

Last but not least check this article about DDR2
