We all know how popular the Motorola Droid is and now thanks to the internet yet again, more information has possibly been leaked out about the Motorola Shadow we heard of last month! How do you fancy a Motorola Droid style handset – possibly minus the QWERTY keyboard – but the specs nudged up to include stuff like a much better camera, HDMI output and what not?

Well if it sounds good to you so far, this may just be your next phone to start drooling over. The guys and gals over at HowardForums have leaked this image below and some specs of the supposed “Droid 2”, or is it the “Motorola Shadow”?

‘Hey there handsome, looking good!’  Browsing over at the forums these are some of the rumoured specs:

  • Tablet form-factor
  • 4.1″ TFT FWVGA screen
  • Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 Processor
  • 2GB built in memory (It said 2MB copied from the forum but most likely 2GB, thanks for pointing out this typo Phandroid’s!)
  • Android 2.1, with soon-to-follow upgrade to 2.2
  • Moto BLUR with updates such as BLUR community chat
  • 8 MP camera
  • 720p recording
  • 1080p output via HDMI port
  • ~9mm thick
  • Releasing in July

Remember a couple months ago we published this article about the Moto Shadow – well the details pretty much match up or are similar to the info we have now. From the image – which to me appears to be some sort of startup guide/booklet – and specs,  we can see this is potentially a ‘high-end’ handset coming to Verizon,  fitting cushty within their “Droid” range . I hope it’s real, and in my opinion it’s looking pretty realistic to me at the moment! In the article posted last month the Motorola Shadow and Droid 2 are claimed to be two separate devices, with the main difference being the inclusion of  a slide-out keyboard on the Droid 2. Look’s like we’re just gonna have to sit back and wait on any more info!

By the way, anyone notice the lack of a trackball?  If you look closely enough though you can see what seems to be a little dent under the tiny buttons at the bottom of the phone. Maybe it’s some sort of optical trackpad like HTC have for navigating?
