Next-gen Motorola Droid (Shadow?) for Verizon leaked

For those who are sick of news about the next-gen Apple iPhone, here’s something about what seems to be Verizon’s next-generation Motorola Droid.

A leaked photo of a Verizon Getting Started manual shows a previously unseen Motorola Droid, which reportedly features MotoBlur (some users think MotoBlur is crap, so putting it on a high-end Droid seems to be a bad idea to me).

This thread over at the Howard Forums suggests the new phone is the Motorola Shadow, which is about 9mm thick and comes with:

  • 4.1 inch TFT full-WVGA touchscreen display
  • Android 2.1 (upgradeable to Android 2.2)
  • 8MP camera with HD (720p) video recording
  • 1080p output via HDMI port
  • TI OMAP 3630 processor (probably at 720 MHz)
  • 2GB of built-in memory

Verizon should launch the new Motorola Droid / Shadow in July. No word on the device’s price yet, but Verizon will probably be wise enough to keep it under $200 on contract. So, will you dump your old QWERTY-friendly Moto Droid for this new and thinner Droid when it comes out?

    No hardware keyboard? If not, no upgrade for me. I demand a hardware keyboard in any smartphone I will even consider buying.

    Otherwise, big concerns have to be whether you can strip off blur and also oc the proc (my droid is oc'd to 1ghz stable and cool).

    Will this phone have mobile hotspot like the Evo 4g on Sprint???
