    DF's member nagmier found a hot tip/pic over at HoFo that appears to be the highly anticipated Motorola Shadow running 2.1 w/MotoBlur.

    With the rumored July release of the Shadow and no solid information as to when Froyo will hit current VZW Android devices it's anybody's guess what the Shadow will ship with.

    The little that has been said about this device is that it will be quite an astonishing piece of hardware.

    We'll be watching this one closely.

    *UPDATE 5/23/2010 wnrussell has reported that the Shadow won't be released until late August due to a hardware change.*

    UPDATE 5/25/2010 Specs: 4.1" screen, OMAP 3630, 8 GB Internal, 8 GB MMC, 8MP camera and HDMI out.

    Updated OP with rumored specs...

    These specs have been talked about extensively and have not been debunked.

    I do not think it will have a keyboard though.

    As always these things can change but that OMAP 3630 will fly.

    The 3630 is a nice an excellent SoC but not a big enough step up from an OC'ed 3430 in the Droid for me to justify a switch. The next device I get will have to be a Cortex A-9 based handset. Hoping that by this time next year my wish will come true.

    Perfect timing from Verizon!! This could give the EVO 4G a run for its money!

    I think one of the neatest things is the HDMI port.

    It has a Purty Screen it looks. It looks way too much like the droid though? (Not that it's a bad thing, was hoping for some unique design flair)

    dancedroid verizon muffs every ota update, takes out features adds from otas like wifi hotspot that would be part of 2.2 but they'll sh** themselves and steal it from us or else make us pay extra to use it. questionable charges to bills.... find every way to nickle and dime you.... service sucks over the vast part of illinois...3g internet sooooooooooooo slow and to top it all of they are expensive as hell :icon_evil:dancedroid

    the only thing that was not included in the 2.1 update for the droid was the homescreens and 3d launcher, verizon is not blocking any thing, what ever app pops up in the market you can download it to the droid as long as it supports the phone, verizon has not blocked on single app but has warned that if you use any app that tampers with your contract you will be charged for example wifi tether. if your so unhappy with verizon then quit whining and put your money where your mouth is and get a carrier that works for you, after all just like the droid, the shadow will more than likly be GSM too

    This pic of the Shadow looks an awful like what I imagined the Droid 2 would look like. Slightly more rounded corners, little bigger screen, chin is still there but a bit different.

    If it is the Shadow, it may very well be my next phone. I'm finding I don't use the physical keyboard anymore. A nice looking phone like this one might just over-shadow the Droid 2.

    MotoBLUR = no thank you. I love my moto droid because it's stock Android. Motorola should smarten up and realize that their best selling phone - the Moto Droid - is stock, and they should keep it that way.

    For the life of me I don't understand why they use that dark grey/black background in their ads. They really need to use a nice blue or red background to show off the phone.
