I’m sure many of you heard about the big showdown between Gizmodo and Apple over the leaking of the iPhone. It looks like unreleased phones are starting to fall into their laps left and right, now, and their story regarding this newly found Motorola Shadow sounds just as “random” as the iPhone 4G story.
Apparently, someone left the phone in a corporate Verizon gym in Washington that showed a text message donning the phone as “unreleased” before the phone was remotely lost. How this phone leaked out is unimportant, though, because we’re too busy drooling over the phone itself: Gizmodo’s reporting it’ll indeed have an 8-megapixel camera, 720p video recording capabilities, and a 4.3-inch touchscreen. There will also be a Snapdragon processor (presumably 1Ghz), an HDMI port, and will ship with Android 2.2 and the latest version of MOTOBLUR.
All of this is expected to come out in either June or July. Whether or not you believe the story of how the phone came to light is on you, but it’s certainly out in the wild and whoever had their hands on it must know what they’re talking about. Hopefully we can see some “anonymously uploaded” videos of this thing in action pretty soon.
