Not to be outdone by the Motorola DROID 2 getting its very own Verizon inventory listing today, the Motorola Shadow decided it wanted to mark out its territory in the annals of Verizon stock too. You’ll note it is only listed as the Motorola MB810, lending credence to the fact that this device will receive a new name upon release (most likely a variation of “Droid Extreme”).
Just like the Droid 2 listing, we aren’t getting any super juicy info out of this, but it further reinforces the idea that these devices will most likely launch simultaneously. Verizon has a history of releasing two Android phones within a short time period (Droid/Droid Eris, Droid Incredible/LG Ally), and an updated Droid at a lower price would keep that line going strong without needing too much promotion (think Blackberry Storm/Storm 2) while a higher priced, higher specced phone like the MB810 would be the big market push. Just my two cents on the whole matter, anyway.
