Is This the Droid Heir Apparent?
Hi there! We noticed you staring at that picture up above. You like? Yeah, that is presumably the follow up to the Motorola Droid from Verizon. It looks great, doesn’t it? Would you like to hear the rumored specs? They’re just about the nicest we’ve seen on an Android phone to date. Okay, here goes…
As we looked around a bunch of posts within Howard Forums, the best we can piece together is this:
- 4.1″ TFT FWVGA screen
- Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 Processor
- 2GB -8GB internal memory
- Android 2.1 (Eclair), possibly 2.2 (Froyo) upon launch
- MOTOBLUR (BLUR community chat)
- 8 MP camera with 720p video recording
- 1080p output via HDMI port
- Roughly 9mm in thickness
We’ve seen July listed a few times as the release time frame so Android 2.2 could make the cut. However, based on Motorola’s history, we’re guessing it’s Android 2.1 at launch. As for the name of this thing, you guess is as good as ours at this point. We’ve heard Droid 2, Droid Xtreme, Shadow, Droid Shadow, and a couple others. Of all the names we’ve seen tossed around, Shadow seems to stick the best. On the other hand, the “Droid” label is clearly marked in the picture. Guess we’ll just have to wait to find out, won’t we?
