Two new Motorola Droids prepared by Verizon for July, one of them is likely the Shadow

With all the leaked details and alleged images of the Motorola Droid Shadow, it’s probably safe to assume that Verizon will launch the new smartphone in the coming months.

Well, according to the Wall Street Journal, the largest US carrier is actually readying two new Motorola Droid smartphones for the month of July. This is in line with some previous rumors, which had it that Verizon would introduce both the Shadow, and a similar smartphone (but with a QWERTY keyboard) dubbed Motorola Droid 2.

So these new Droids that the WSJ is talking about are likely the Shadow and the Droid 2. If the smartphones will be launched in July, they might both come with Android 2.2 Froyo from the start.

Although Motorola launched Verizon’s first high-end Droid, the Droid series also includes handsets made by HTC: the Droid Eris and the Droid Incredible – the latter having better features that Moto’s first Droid, and an arguably nicer look.

So Motorola needs to come with really nice handsets from now own, if it wants customers to associate the Droid brand with its name more than with HTC’s. From what we’ve seen and heard until now, the Moto Shadow won’t disappoint – but let’s not anticipate.

    Yes, Motorola can turn its cell business around. As Wallstreet knows, Motorola's 'Droid' was a smash hit in November of 2009. And, two more 'little' Moto android guys are on the launch pad ready to steak out this summer. The sky will be the limit for Motorola, if they are the Droid Shadow and the Motorola Droid 2. From internet noise, at least one of these little pocket rockets will be the phenomenal Droid Shadow (and please Motorola/Verizon keep the 'Droid Shadow' name: Mysterious, romantic, yet extremely powerful sounding). I, for one, was getting ready to buy the HTC Droid Incredible, but with all the stunning specs predicted for the Shadow, plus the fact that Motorola is an American company, the 'Shadow' is probably the way I will go. Reading on the internet blogs, I am not alone in breathlessly awaiting the 'Shadow'. Motorola should do exceptionally well.
