    It's not too often that a CEO of a tech company drops interesting tidbits of future releases.... instead, they prefer to be a bit more tight lipped and let the marketing and PR department handles those controlled leaks.

    Sanjay Jha the CEO of Motorola though recently let a nugget free. According to him, Motorola will release a device that operates at 2Ghz or higher by the end of this year. That's not too far away folks. When pressed for more information he decided to clam up a bit more. Another source inside Motorola went on to talk a bit about what this phone will offer and it will "incorporate everything that is technologically possible in a smartphone today."

    I can't imagine much more being packed into these phones but I'm all ears.

    i wonder what chipset will be used. looking at the ti omap and snapdragon roadmaps, there's no sign of 2ghz chips... some dual-cores, others where their architecture has been significantly shrunk, but no 2ghz...

    maybe... a different chipset entirely? intel atom perhaps? anyone with more knowledge than me, thoughts??

    this would be so amazing. i wanted sense ui in my next phone, but if htc cant compare to these specs i will easily pay $600 to buy this without extending my contract. everything in it is amazing.

    Its going to be an Nvidia Tegra, I read it over on either phandroid or engadget. Im going to guess that the battery life is going to be about an hour or two lol

    Perhaps it is two 1Ghz Snaps combined in one phone, hence 2Ghz.

    Wouldn't be the first time someone played with marketing ...

    I think they just released the info to openly instigate Apple to step up its game. I can only assume fair competition, however you go about it, must exist, otherwise you create a monopoly. Expect Apple to come out with something on par with this device around the same time.

    Holy crap, I just wet myself.

    Pretty smart to leak this info just as Apple officially unveils its iPhone 4G. This might make some people who were thinking of getting the new iPhone pause and wait to see what Moto releases.

    I just hope this new Moto phone is coming to Verizon (and that Verizon offers an early upgrade promotion for it). Otherwise, it will be seven months to a year old by the time I'm ready to upgrade (maybe the 4Ghz model will be available at that time:)).

    Somehow I doubt Apple would leave its fanbase with a device whose hardware has been significantly surpassed for over half a year but it's possible I suppose. More than likely if the iPhone 4G gets released any time soon they'll follow that up with the iPhone 4GS, then to be followed shortly thereafter by the turbo or supercharged models 4GT and 4GTX. ;)

    name for 2Ghz MOTO

    It's the "MOTO DROID DOUBLE EXTREME EDGE II GRIZZLY BEAR DUO FTW" At least, that's the code name I've heard being tossed around.... the acronym is crap, but I'm sure we could think of something shorter.
