Maybe the Droid Xtreme name was just a bit too…extreme, but it looks like the smartphone formerly known as the Motorola Shadow will be launching as the Droid X by Motorola. That’s the latest we are hearing from a very reliable source (the same the provided us with oh so much Droid Incredible info).


Let’s run down some of the more interesting things we know about Moto’s next killer handset:

  • Rumored OMAP 3630 with PowerVR SGX530 GPU (and it runs pretty fast)
  • 4.3-inch, 854×480 display
  • 8MP camera with dual-LED flash
  • 720p HD video recording
  • HDMI-out
  • Front-facing camera
  • Android 2.1

So there you have it, the Droid X, and we are sure to be learning a whole lot more about this one in the coming weeks. For now I’ll just say you’ll want to be checking back here very soon for a special little treat involving the phone with many names.
