    If the Moto Droid 2 comes with the Tegra chip that will be pretty awesome.

    The power : )

    Everywhere I search I see tons of rumors about the droid 2 and shadow but nothing verified. I see rumors that they are one in the same, rumors that they aren't. There are fake pictures, and a lot of articles mistaking the Incredible for the next Droid.

    Honestly, all this sucks. My contract just became eligible for an upgrade today and the lack of news on the next incarnation of the Droid is really a bummer. I'm a bit of a keyboard freak, and without solid buttons I'll go nuts (It was #1 on my list of gripes with the iPhone but has since gone down on it). However, the Incredible just seems too much of an improvement to pass up on, especially for the same price point.

    The announcements always seem to come too close to the actual release to be of good to many people, so I wouldn't be surprised if I picked up either a Droid or an Incredible now only to find out that the Droid 2 will be out in June, which I would gladly wait for >.<

    Yeah I'm not a fan of these UI's (MotoBlur and Sense)

    Give us the Tegra : )

    Talking about a release as early as June though...

    I have an upgrade ready so I'm pretty excited about this one.

    Father's Day release? That would make it June of this year. Now the other glaring kicks in the balls. Moto Blur?! Seriously if the Droid 2 has Moto Blur you can seriously count me out until it is rooted proper and get something like BB or Cyanogen on it. Otherwise it's a no go and I will look elsewhere for my Android fix. Motorola if you read these forums. WE DON'T WANT A MOTOBLUR SUCCESSOR TO DROID! Give us a real "Google Experience" phone like you did with the original Droid and you will have yet another winner. Otherwise you will once again fade back into obscurity.

    Ugggh please tell me the next moto droid won't have motoblur, I finally got behind the wheel if the Sense UI on the incredible last night, and I have to say aside from the ugly launcher I liked it.

    All I really want(as an upgrade) is the things that will make at least par with the latest: double the processing speed, a better camera, and video out/ HD

    Yes me too most definitely. I need the keyboard. My 30 days runs out 1st week of May...My 'gift from Verizon very early' NE2 upgrade was to expire May 31st...but I jumped all over the Droid as soon I got the email the beginning of April....

    AAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

    But my Droid runs so good with no problems, I can see myself forking over retail for this Shadow/Droid 2. Now I know what its like to be an iPhone user....cuz this is the first time I even considered paying retail for a phone. Well, actually I almost paid retail for the Droid...Verizon saved the day.

    ^^ null point, as eventually you can OC that bad boy too, I'm sure.

    Remember your droid started life with only 550mhz, imagine if a 1GHz can double the speeds with root? ;)

    you must remember

    one the droid is on verizon.. and for a handset to actually make it on verizon it not only has to pass f.c.c but also verizon.... sucks thats why they reject alot of hot phones (let other carriers try them first) like iphone/instinct/and most of their samsung and lg phones.. plus most great phones are downgraded by the f.c.c to be sold in the us and canada.. sucks i know... thats why some manufactuers never sell their good stuff till years later (nokia/panasonic/sony)... but hey we will see.. the droid did set a new standard in processing speed!! so all will have to follow suit!! i hope.. moto is not known for killing their money makers off with a complete new phone, the razr was around for years!! but we will see what they do.. hands down the milestone/droid is the fastest phone i have seen being sold (not tested on youtube) to the consumer base since the iphone.. i love it and plan on sticking with moto (i have the hard to find milestone on att 3g and makes the iphone look slow)...

    Droid 2 rumor is looking like an October release....

    The Shadow will be in June.....

    Both these Moto's are supposed to be pretty beefy....Shadow will have better specs/hardware than the Incredible.

    Droid 2 should be a monster

    and so the cycle continues : )

    yes you could oc to maximise speed, but thats unessary heat for your handset and stress. if you are already running a ui that is designed for speed why tweak and lose life expendancy?? also if it happens to brick or malfunction moto might not cover it under warranty... well if your on verizon the techs might not notice the mod and get you a new one if you ahve the insurance..

    Trying to decipher the little bits of info from the people "in the know" motoblur MAY be on the Shadow.

    The Droid 2 MAY be seeing Android 3.0.

    Droid 2 is being described as godly lol
