    We are always on the look out for the next big product to drop and today we have an exciting find. Meet the Motorola Shadow! At first glimpse the phone looks very similar to the current Motorola Droid with a wrist strap towards the bottom. Slide out the bottom and your hit with a completely redesigned white keyboard. The keyboard looks to be more functional with a smaller dpad and keys spaced more evenly across. Could this be the Droid2? Let us know your thoughts!

    Thanks for the tip Tigger!

    It is a nice looking device, but with the white keyboard makes it look more feminine, Don't Ya Think ?

    I will stick with my DROID !!!

    lol does any one actually use those lanyard wrist straps? like who just puts those things on their phone and lets it dangle off their wrist while they walk?

    Kind of a stupid move to put a huge piece devoted to it protruding out the bottom of the phone

    The D-pad doesn't bother me. I have used mine like 4 times because I couldn't get the cursor where I wanted it on a word I didn't spell correctly.

    The phone looks sexy. Feminine or not. I don't care for the wrist strap but I'd rather have that small thing sticking out than that crap we have now.

    I really wish we had some physical buttons on the screen. Like the ones we have now except physical. I hit those things all the time when I don't mean to.

    its alright looking.... not feeling the wrist strap at all. The keyboard is cool I wish the Dpad were more circular for gaming... I think the whole thing should be one color.

    D-pad placement is perfect!! now your right thumb doesn't have to be an extra inch long.

    Two words: Butt Ugly.

    Only in color choices.

    I haven't used my Droid's phys KB that much, but the D-Pad definatley, and it will become more important for gaming down the line IMO.

    I actually like the D-pad where it is now. Of course, I have very large hands... I also prefer the physical keyboard to the virtual one. Am I alone here???

    Oh, I also don't like the color of the phone. I know some people say that black gets old, but I would rather have a black phone than one in a multitude of colors... I think those just look tacky.

    I seldom if ever use my pull out keyboard. I'm an average size male, with not so big of hands, but the keyboard keys still seem a little to small. I do understand that it was an engineering compromise, however I hope they'll improve upon this. For now I'm quite content to use the virtual keyboard.

    i like the concept of it but the colors definitely a no no and that wrist strap thing gotta go as well...

    what they should do is offer a choice of either a phone with or without a keyboard. Just like some blackberry phones offer one with or without a camera........im just sayin

    I call bull****. The strap is on two different sides in these pics. First the short side and then the long side.
