Motorola Shadow Also Lands in Verizon Inventory

So we got a little pre-mature on the Motorola Shadow is “no where to be found” comment in the previous Droid 2 post.  It is definitely there.  MB810, CHECK.

Maybe these 2 devices will both appear in July as the WSJ stated earlier?  I’m still going with my gut and saying Shadow in June and Droid 2 in Q4.

Thoughts?  Which would you choose if they were to come out on the same day?  (Ooh, that might be a good poll!)

    I enjoy the efforts you have put in this, appreciate it for all the great articles……

    If you can turn off Motoblur and get updates rather quickly or at least not as slow as htc’s sense then I’m all for this phone.

    That's not the Droid 2, that's the Motorola Shadow, which is being renamed to the Motorola Extreme.

    The Droid 2 is the leaked photograph of the pull-out keyboard that looks most similar to the Droid.

    What's so hard to understand… shadow's a large screen, hi-def , HDMI out, touchscreen only iPhone killer and D2 is an improved keyboard, improved performance (double), improved screen resolution, improved

    Actually, it looks like BOTH the Shadow and the Droid 2 have shown up in the inventory listing.

    I hear you, but my concern is that if I get any of these phones, they won't be able to keep up with the real 4G devices that will be released next year..

    I think,the “Droid” branding is meant to be Moto's higher end consumer smartphone-in line with the iPhone and Blackberry's.

    What's so hard to understand… shadow's a large screen, hi-def , HDMI out, touchscreen only iPhone killer and D2 is an improved keyboard, improved performance (double), improved screen resolution, improved memory BEAST…. seriously, quit kibitzing like old women, wait a few weeks and let the MOTO/DROID/VZW love flow. The question I have is how pissed off is HTC. They'd better go back to T-Mobile and put their kneepads on to try and sell that crap somewhere else…

    Go with the Shadow. Big screen, extremely fast.

  • Breeze

    Go with the shadow. Its well worth it, even coming from the original Droid.

    incredible shipping on 22nd, but i might just ditch that for a moto-droid if they turn out nice

  • KINGOFMYDOMAIN

    The first thing i do when i wake up every-morning AFTER taking my meds is come to this site to see W.T.F. is going on with this Droid Situation. I stood in line to get this phone (Droid 1) and the talks over the new one is taking over my life. DONT MISUNDERSTAND ME PLEASE. I don't know dick about using 75% of what this phone really does its just I'm 39 years old and its all about outdoing my buddy's.I'm a full time student and my best friends (MORGAGE BROKER) has a iphone and my (NURSESETHANIST) has the blackberry.If all we can do is play (whose is bigger?) Ive definitely got the wrecking ball around my way……….Does Anyone Know The Real Differences Between Shadow and Droid 2 ?

    • TDolby

      I check this SHADOW news all day long, with 24hrs of ordering my incredible on 5/22 I saw these stories about the shadow. My incredible is not even suppose to ship until 6/11. Now I want to cancel that and get in line for the shadow if it's going to be as fast or faster. Sounds like it will be very fast? Should I cancel my Incredible????

  • wolverinefan

    Is there a way to exchange, to droid 1 for droid 2 by paying some money cuz this is truly bs to come out with a new droid within 9 months of the first one

  • palomosan

    My question is why drop two smart phones the same month, it makes no sense to me, don't get me wrong I love and would love the Droid 2 but why drop it together with Shadow, it'll loose Mojo, just saying.

  • http://www.johnpariah.wordpress.com/ JP the Droid King

    the Shadow (at least the one we've been pining over in the pictures) will NOT (i repeat) NOT be rocking MotoBlur….

    Straight from my Moto Rep, no “Droid” branded Motorola device will be rocking Motorblur. the “Droid” branding is meant to be Moto's higher end consumer smartphone-in line with the iPhone and Blackberry's.

  • aczm1988

    I for one will be waiting for the droid 2, hopefully it doesnt come out till later this year. I just got my droid in january :S. I hate when they update phones when the first isnt even obsolete yet. Also i will only update if the droid 2 has way better specs then the original droid. Either way though its gonna take a toll on my wallet im not even ready for a year upgrade yet. Ch Ching $500+ out the door.

    Droid numero dos for this guy!

    It's nearly official. Verizon needs to announce the Shadow/Extreme already!!!

  • JAStark87

    If you can turn off motoblur and get updates rather quickly or atleast not as slow as htc's sense then im all for this phone But specs matter to me so if I see this and a droid 2 and the droid 2 has the better specs thats my choice. If there the same and, once again, blur can be shut off then I'll be updating to this.

  • Ace Z.

    I mean come on, is that going to be really a poll Kellex? We all know the DROID will dominate once again and DROID 2 will likely succeed in sales. I for one will be buying the DROID 2. I knew if I was patient and decided not to purchase the Incredible, the DROID 2 will come out soon after. One thing for sure, I really hope the Moto Shadow will not be branded DROID, that'll be bad marketing two DROID's back to back? The Shadow should be labeled a regular smartphone and the inventory screenshot clearly shows that.

  • William S.

    Why does everyone hate Motoblur?

    • JAStark87

      the only thing i hate about any custom ui is that they are very slow in updating to newer versions of android. I think thats alot of the problem for people. Atleast on sites like this that are looking up info all the time.

  • RealGame22

    Dang Kellex, You have these photos all over the net.lol. Every site I've checked…

  • JAStark87

    honestly if the shadow didn't have blur I'd probably get that cause I hardly every use a physical keyboard anymore after using swype. It also depends on the specs of the droid also. If the screen is bigger with better specs then obviously im gonna go with that.

    • kellex

      Rumor is that you can turn off Motoblur. That's 1 rumor I'm hoping is completely true.

      • Kev

      Isn't MotoBlur just another launcher? Can't you just install, say, Launcher Pro and use it?
