Motorola Droid 2 and Shadow Model Numbers Spotted

Back in April we hinted at 2 mysterious Motorola devices that were set to launch this summer with one being the Motorola Shadow and the other being the newest version of the Motorola Droid aka the Droid 2.  While we were pretty adamant that these were in fact 2 different devices, the rest of the world seemed poised to group them in together as one.

To help disprove that thought, here are 2 tweets from @Androidevicespy who seems to have captured both the Shadow and Droid 2.  Both CDMA and both headed to Verizon.

Motorola Droid 2 (A955)

Motorola Shadow (MB810)

Steps closer to the next Droid family member!

Update: It looks like the Droid 2 passed its wifi certification…

    Off topic, but what ROM are you running in those shots, kellex? Looks very clean; I want it.

      Scratch that, I forgot that I read about DarkEdge yesterday.

  • palomosan

    Kellex if I'm not mistaken the Shadow will be name Xtreme according to Engadget.

    Droid Xtreme has a nice tune to it, doesn't it?

  • tneison2

    Hey guys s please help me with this one. I am rooted, running jrummys cyan theme only and have downloaded rom manager premium. I have downloaded buglress beast and checked the wipe cache and back up current rom and it reboots my phone and takes it to sp recovery then stops and doesn't do anything. I then pushed install and all that and it installed but it kept the same jrummys cyan theme and didn't switch to buglress beast. Help anyone

  • droid_in_oregon

    Why can't someone drop a prototype Droid 2 on some bar floor already???

      I don't think kellex needs the Portland pd raiding his house,

  • aarynk

    Engadget is saying their “source” is calling it the “Xtreme”…

    • Michael_NM

      That's a great name for that phone. As in “Xtreme”ly goofy-looking. Dr. Droid (Kellex) has already said that phone isn't Droid 2.

      • aarynk

        HAHAHA… yeah I'm hoping it's just the new name for the Shadow

    It won't have moto blur because that would be something that isnt the true google experience and I assume it would want to stay true to droid

  • Winterfresh

    If its nothing new there is no way I am going to buy it, I just have a feeling that they are going to copy the incredible and slap on a keyboard.

    Please give us something new MOTO! the markets already flooded with multiple versions of the same basic phone

    • http://twitter.com/Durrock2000 Derek Weber

      I bet you'll see a 1 ghz+ OMAP processor instead of the snapdragon. It'll blow the doors of an Incredible.

      • Winterfresh

        Yeah, but its nothing new.

        I'll wait for LTE, or until they significantly increase battery life somehow

  • aarynk

    Color me EXCITED!!! Please, please NO MOTOBLUR!!!!

    • kellex

      My sources tell me that there is a really good chance that the Shadow will indeed have MotoBlur and the Droid 2 will not.

      • aarynk

        I'm ok with that as long as our Droid 2 will be stock 2.2+ when it comes out and has the better specs!!

  • troutlaw

    Maybe the Droid2 will come with its own game gripper style controller underneath the screen instead of a keyboard since we are all used to not using it anyway. I can dream can't I ?

  • cpeter753

    Wow that kind of sucks. i mean i really love my droid but if the droid 2 comes out this year im gonna hafta retire my robot to rest for the better version. ill hafta wait and see though, i need pics and specs before i make the call though.

  • http://www.twitter.com/dailydroidapp AndroFan

    Wow, just saw the update pic. So it looks like it's going to have wireless-n speed. That's pretty damn nice.

  • scuba_koop

    That is great news, my plan is up at the end of May. Guess I will be holding out a little for some Droid 2 action!! This site rocks!

  • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

    We'll seeeeeeee……

  • mkregs

    Anybody wanna put odds on 2.2 having it's introductory launch on D2 while D1 owners will have to wait months to get the OTA?

    • kellex

      Yikes. Tough bet to take there.

    • http://www.facebook.com/RoyR80 Roy Rader

      <— shrugs, thinking ur prolly right. (sad but tru)

    • Tom

      Eh… That doesn't matter, because the second it does, people like Koush will redesign it to work with the Droid 1

  • http://www.twitter.com/dailydroidapp AndroFan

    Can someone explain how this twitter account “Androidevicespy” works? How does it detect & tweet signature information? I'm intrigued.

    • kellex

      As am I. But I love it though hah.

      • aarynk

        Same here started to follow them after you posted this story

    • http://mattdemers.com Matt Demers

      Yeah, I'd like to know how this works, as well.

    • John

      I'm a twitter newb and have no idea what you're talking about

    • Jedi_Gunslinger

      Two words:: “Patriot…Act” C'mon everyone knows the Droid is a threat to national security…well, apples financial security anyway ;-)

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RXFWXDUWRRHCGFV6NP2SDZ7YLU Ray

    I guess this just means that there really is a droid 2 in the works
