Something very interesting just bombarded its way into our tip box. It seems that a new model from Motorola has just gotten its WiFi certification, and it appears that it might be the rumored Motorola Droid 2 (Motorola Shadow, anyone?). The model number spotted in the certification is the A955 (similar to the original Droid’s model number – the A855).

This differs from the model we found in a different WiFi Certification not too long ago – the Motorola MB810. After doing some digging, one of our tipsters – named C.Y. – tracked down more information regarding the A955 and found a twitter feed that monitors new device signatures that access the web. The end result of that curiosity was the following tweet:

If this twitter feed is accurate, it means that the device is out there, it’s coming to Verizon, and it will be the true successor to the Motorola Droid. We hope this is a first step to uncovering more information about the rumored device(s), but until then, lay your thoughts about this discovery in the comments below.

[thanks, C.Y.!]
