Motorola Shadow: What We Know About It

After months of quiet (or just that everyone forgot about it) the Motorola Shadow is making an unusual comeback. After Motorola confirmed that they were working on a phone with Google, possibly the Nexus Two, the whole mobile world went blazes over the idea. So starting off with as much confirmation of the Motorola Shadow’s existence is its model number: MB810, which came from a Japanese site . Then comes a recent certified Wi-Fi filing found to contain that same model number (seen after the line break), which states that the Shadow can use 802.11 b/g/n signals. Then comes the rumored spec list:

  • Large 4.3″ capacitive screen
  • Android 2.1 or 2.2 Froyo (possibly to be unveiled at Google I/O next month)
  • An 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording
  • Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • Some other important stuff in the next paragraph…

Then of course, comes the exclusive shot (above) that I believe is the side profile shot of the Shadow (which also displays clearly the 8 MP sensor), 3.5mm audio jack, micro-USB, and HDMI-out port. Since Google employees did throw a party recently with Android at its center, it comes to the idea that they were celebrating Android 2.2’s completion, and the Shadow (or Nexus Two’s) upcoming unveiling. Hopefully though, this upcoming handset will be a super awesome phone.
