There has been a great deal of hype and excitement surrounding the upcoming Droid Shadow/MB810 Droid Xtreme and its apparent speed and overall performance. A recent benchmark test indicated that the handset comes in just slightly under a Nexus One running Android 2.2 (Froyo). Great, right? It gets greater. According to user bill23 on Howard Forums, the Shadow he used to run the test was not running 2.2 yet.
bill23: “My Droid 1 scores 834 with stock froyo.on the quadrant app.my shadow scored better than some of the other scores i have seen..very impressive …”
sjavvaji: “lol “my shadow”…plz tell us if it is on froyo…if its not matching nexus on 2.2 is amazing…if it is its still friggin’ amazing…this wait is killing me”
bill23: “Its not on froyo”
So what is it that could possibly make this phone so fast and perform so well? If we’re reading it right, it might have something to do with Motorola’s new NinjaBlur experience.
I move silent like a “Ninja” and strike in a” Blur” of speed. Ninja Blur is Blur running without the user knowing. For those who don’t like Blur.
Why Motorola would even bother adding another layer to Android if the user couldn’t see it is beyond us. Hopefully we can get glean a few tidbits in the coming weeks leading up to the release.
Another user who might be familiar to you Droid followers, wnrussell, posted what appears to be the battery for the forthcoming MB810 Shadow. Start looking forward to a 1500mAh capacity battery!
