Motorola Launching 2GHz Android Phone in 2010?

We already knew that Motorola had plans to release 2-4 new Android smartphones by the end of the year, but what we didn’t know is that they are hoping to make one of those the most ridiculously powerful devices ever.  Moto CEO Sanjay Jha, snuck in the gem of all gems yesterday in his speech at the Executives Club of Chicago, by announcing a 2GHz powered Android smartphone which should be released before the end of 2010.  Wow.

Another Moto big wig also chimed in with a few more of the device’s details…

…this new phone is intended to incorporate everything that is technologically possible in a smartphone today. It will be based on Android, and include, like the iPhone 4, a gyroscope and add an Nvidia Tegra-based graphics processor with full Flash 10.1 hardware acceleration…

Anyone else speechless?

  • This is one of the most incredible blogs Ive read in a very
    long time. The amount of information in here is stunning, like you practically
    wrote the book on the subject. Your blog is great for anyone who wants to
    understand this subject more. Great stuff; please keep it up!


  • y8

    good information, thanks

  • I dont.. I like not having a physical keyboard. IMO, it feels awkward to actually press the physical keys now.

  • i like it, thanks

    Couple this with nickel batteries Moto is developing and we have ourselves the next in a long upcoming line of great Android phones. Hopefully that beast of a 2GHz phone will also have AMOLED from Sammy to help out the battery. I bet it has a 4″+ screen and enough fiya powa to burn a phoenix

    • Nickel batteries? please explain, will these increase battery life?

  • Thegoldendroid

    I dont give a damn if the battery lasts ten minutes this is going to be a beast. With phones like these coming out its getting easier and easier to wait out that two year contract.. especially with updates that make my phone just as current as new models and my 7 month old phone still killing new models on benchmark tests.! Thank you Android fro making me one of the cool Kids!

  • Next year, in AUGUST! When I'm eligible for upgrade, I'm sure we'll be on Android 3.0+, be running new 25nm CPUs running at 4GHz, with GPUs that run at 100fps! I'll wait… Until then, Droid just keeps getting better. Running 2.2 (Froyo), this phone is now faster than the Nexus 1, and the graphics are miles and away better than anything HTC has come up with. It's either Moto or Samsung for me from now on.

  • Ragib

    Ahh I've managed to save up enough money to get my first smartphone like 6 weeks ago and I was going to get the Droid, and then I heard about the Droid Xtreme and I was holding out for that, and now I heard about THIS and I want to hold out for THIS =[

    How much of the original price would I typically be able to sell the Droid Xtreme for after say, 4 months of use?

  • the_omega_man

    It is a sad thought that your mobile phone may one day be faster, and more useful than your laptop/netbook!

    • Thegoldendroid

      one day??? try the day Froyo came out!

  • Hope they'll also add USB webcam support for competition with Windows-based mobile netbooks (with USB camera glasses). Need a head-mounted camera for augmented reality applications.

  • Anilraj420

    well i have the droid so i cant get a new phone untill next year so by then they should have 2ghz with front carmera

  • 1bad69z28

    Grat news and Good Job Kellex!! I just wish the DROID 2 was getting all of those new goodies.

  • magdroid

  • ajavgeek

  • Kineo

    bill23: Your pretty close….Droid pro and DroidW are the same unit to bad it is disguised extremely well in a old device housing.
    -As far as the keyboard. A member asked if the device would have a keyboard
    bill23: ^ YES^ A very improved keypad at that i must say. I wonder who picked it out or suggested it.

    • NorCalGuy

      i really hope you are right

  • Storm34x

    hopefully it comes to verizon

  • Go Motorola, go!

  • he says “look what i found behind my ears!! NEW DROIDS!! LMAO..

  • dr0id

    2GHZ gonna be blazing fast! and very powerful!

  • Vasra

    What the whole world wants to know is:

    CDMA or UMTS?

  • mouzz

    start building the wii emulator 😀

  • I got 2 questions what's a gyroscope, nd lte?

    • Eduardo.. gyroscope gives the capability to use ur phone for interactive games like tilting the phone to steer ur car in need for speed or something.. get it? and LTE is “Long Term Evolution” its the technology that Verizon, Vodafone, and ChinaMobile will use for their 4G network. big big speedy network worldwide… :)..

      • oh gotcha thanks man.learning someething everyday:)

  • So how exactly is this suppose to work? Hell 2ghz laptops dont last that long and most have a much larger battery so how is this going to last 1 day? Unless this is going to be/similar to Moorestown where the processor has a burst rather than operating at 2ghz constantly. Though even then with adding a GPU well it just has to be said and well the heat?! Come on….

    Is there going to be a added solar panel? lol I really dont see how its going to work.

    Also from the sounds of it “released before the end of 2010” sound like 2010 Q4 imo.

    Sounds awesome and all but….well..Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
    Also WTB Keyboard!

    • Chris Nimon

      you never know with todays tech. my laptop has 18.5 inch screen, dual hard drives(i have a lot of music and movies on it) and with the Intel I7 chip it does pretty well.

      • Hmm unless its going to be done the way moorestown is being then i doubt it, The I7 chips do something similar with the turbo feature giving a 200mhz or more but in the moorestown case it drops the mhz alot more which makes it feasable.
        Laptop batterys weigh a fair bit.

        For me my contract runs up soon so I will most likely go for Droid 2, i just wish they would confirm which has the keyboard. I use my keyboard on my G1 99% of the time so.

    • yah right on time for my ne2 discount.. gotta love the big V.. instant $100 off purchase price 🙂

    • the_omega_man

      Don't laugh…Apple is seeking a Patent for a see through Solar Power Cell that is embedded into the glass layers of a touchscreen Phone/mobile device! Let the innovations Begin Again!
