Motorola Shadow Spotted in the wild, get your 4”+ Screen phone on Verizon!
After seeing the image for this phone, I’m sure that we all collectively agree that this is going to be the sexiest device of this summer. Codnamed “The Shadow”, this device from Motorola is rumored to be carrying some impressive specs. Here’s a list of the very impressive rumored specs:
- 4.1" TFT WVGA screen
- Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 45nm Processor clocked at 720 MHz
- Android 2.2 by launch possible, otherwise Android 2.1 with Moto BLUR
- 8 MP camera
- 720p recording
- 1080p output via HDMI port
- ~9mm thick (For reference, iPhone 3GS is 12.3mm)
- Releasing in July
Pics and Video Comparison with DROID CPU after the break.
Pictured on this manual is the Android 2.1 with Moto BLUR. But according to the poster on HowardForums, this handset should have full Adobe Flash 10.1 support by launch. This leads me to believe that since Google requires Android 2.2 as the minimum requirement for Adobe Flash 10.1 on smartphones, this handset will ship with Android 2.2 “Froyo”.
For anybody who wants to know about the performance watch the video below which compares the TI OMAP 3430 CPU (underclocked to 550 MHz) that is used in the Motorola DROID vs the TI OMAP 3630 CPU (720 MHz). The TI OMAP 3630 uses a faster clocked GPU that helps it achieve 80% better performance on the graphics benchmark.
