More Details on the Motorola Droid Shadow
According to earlier unconfirmed reports, the Droid Shadow will have a high-end feature set, starting with a FWVGA (854×480) touchscreen set in a slim tablet shape without a physical keyboard.

It will debut running Google’s Android OS 2.1 on a 720 MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 processor, and an upgrade to the new Android OS 2.2 is in the offing.

The Motorola smartphone will also allegedly include a new version of MotoBlur, Motorola’s software that brings together messages from a range of social-networking services like Facebook and Twitter, text messages, as well as consumer and business email accounts, into a universal inbox.

The leaked specifications list for the Droid Shadow includes an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video as well as an HDMI video-out port which will allegedly offer 1080p support.

It will also supposedly include 8 GB of internal storage and be bundled with an 8 GB microSD memory card.

All other specifications for this model remain unknown, but it’s likely to include the features that are typical in other high-end Android OS models, such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.

Even the name hasn’t been confirmed yet. It’s possible this smartphone will be sold as the Motorola Droid Xtreme.
