    It appears that another cell-phone has been "lost" and then "found in the wild" by an unrelated person(s). If your into the tech world you are probably well aware of the recent "lost and found" iPhone 4G. But... now we have our own Droid Shadow being lost and found.

    Gizmodo is reporting that a Droid Shadow was left at one of the Verizon corporate gyms in Washington. The person who found the phone was able to verify that the phone was "unreleased" before it was remotely locked.

    Unlike like the iPhone however, this phone was given back without much fanfare. However, we did learn some interesting facts about the phone. The stats we know about: Snapdragon processor, 8MP Camera, HDMI Output and most importantly a 4.3" screen.

    Now conspiracy theorists can go on and on about how this might be a controlled leak to combat the HTC EVO 4G from getting all the recent Android press... I guess we may never know :)

    Does anyone know if this phone will be released in Europe? Or more specifically the UK?

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that Cereal Killer said this was a world phone. If I'm wrong he will correct me. Or somebody else will.

    I disagree that this has a snapdragon.

    I am still aiming at the 720mhz or 1ghz OMAP Armcore A8 processors.

    I agree!! I love my keyboard on my Droid, always have since day one. I guess I won't be upgrading unless this phone has a physical keyboard (but from what I've seen and read it doesn't :( ). I would like a bigger screen next time around but will only switch if it has a keyboard. I refuse to go backwards and get a phone that has less than the one I am coming from. Here's a thought....lol....They should make 2 versions of phones, one with keyboards and one without, to satisfy everyone. Even if it meant you had to place an order for one with a keyboard if they didn't want to mass produce too many in case they felt they wouldn't sell. I would still go for that.

    I second that, it looks pretty, but without a physical keyboard it is USELESS to me. I HATE onscreen keyboards. Especially when I have a very capable and pretty much perfect phone, IMO, right now.
