Motorola CEO Confirms Tegra 2 Phone, Possibly Launching by X-mas?

Last night, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha was asked a few questions by some media members just after the announcement of the Droid Pro and one of them touched on the mysterious dual-core Tegra 2 processor phone that we are all only hoping comes out by X-mas.  He mentioned that there is a chance that they will release one more phone before the holidays, but the Tegra 2 phone could be pushed back to early 2011.  And remember that the Droid 2 Global has yet to be announced, meaning there is a much greater chance that we’ll see that before the superphone launches.

There are zero specs or leaks out for this device and rumors suggest that Motorola is making NDA’s for all of their new projects ridiculously strict.  If this bad boy of a phone does drop by the holidays, there is a chance that it comes as a last minute announcement much like the Droid Pro.  OK, that’s a lie, you know we’ll be on this.

    What ever happened to his promise for 2-4 phones with front-facing cameras by the end of the year? Ref: http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/09/motorola-droid-sales-extremely-strong/

    I mean, I don't know how much I'd use it, but if you could utilize the new Skype for Android and Skype video, that would be amazing! I know if any new news comes out about these (speculations) phones, Droid-Life will get it first!!

    Even with all this superpower in these phones, they seem to be getting even more locked down… So the question becomes is it even worth it to get one of these new phones when there is nothing that my D1 cant do that one of these new locked down droids can. In fact I would say that my d1 could prob do more, especially with the huge dev community behind it.

    Well considering the Droid X is already slated for end of life in March 2011 I would imagine there has to be some overlap for a new phone to fill its shoes. So I'm not holding my breath for holidays but I can't imagine it'll be much later than January if that EOL statement means anything from Verizon.

    Im really getting tired of all these new phones that are coming out every week it seems like. I bought the Droid the day it comes out and now not even a year latter the phone is already out of date and under powered compared to the rest of the phones coming out.

      Don't get down about it! I know how you feel…I got a D1 as a graduation present from college back in April and then like soon after that the Incredible and Droid X were announced…I was kinda bummed b/c my phone already felt outdated but then I was like screw it and I decided to root and never looked back haha…I'm using the Sapphire 1.1.1 ROM with Launcher Pro Plus and everything runs great…smooth as silk…you can get great use out of the D1 for as long as you need if you ever decide to take the plunge and root and overclock the processor…and it's really easy to revert back to stock. Of course this is all assuming that you are still running stock! Chin up friend!

        Thats what i am running. I rooted back in December and started doing custom rom shortly after 2.1 came out. Don't get me wrong I love my droid and love every minute of android. but it gets annoying when a newer phone comes out every week, theres so many phones that would be cool to have like the droid 2 with the better keyboard but loose alot advantages the D1 has. unlike a certain phone thats only once a year. so you dont have to be depressed about these awesome phones that come out every week it seems like

    Since It's Caps Wednesday (According To Janacek), I Thought I Would Follow Suit.

    This Will Most Likely Be The Successor To My Beloved D1. Please Do Some More Detective Work Kellex. I Wants Me Specs!!

    Does this mean the Droid 2 Global is still coming?

  • rals

    If they do announce, lets hope it takes advantage of LTE. Otherwise, it's a bust as of now!

    I'm interested to see how this turns out, with Boxee ditching Tegra I'm not sure it is as good as it is hyped up to be.

  • I'm Curious To Know More About This Phone…

  • tbaybe

    hmmm whats it look like?!?!

    • Imagine a HP printer mixed with a Black&Decker Toaster. Bingo =)

  • Killersaurus

    Who cares? It'll be locked down tight just the Milestone, Droid X, Droid 2, etc. Hope you're happy with what Moto gives you, cuz that's all you'll get.

    • I'm Not Really Worried About That, We Got A Great Group Of Developers That Are Always Getting Root Access And Giving Us Custom ROMs…

        Somebody needs to do you a favor and break your shift key.

      • zOMG. Caps On Each Word? That's Epic.
        The Saurus is upset his Razr is extinct 🙂

    • Im not shocked at all with the lock down Moto did. All of their products were locked in some fashion. There set top boxes, modems and EMTAs are all encrypted. Took my days to figure out the modem flash to rewrite them back to oem after a crash.

  • This is all unconfirmed speculation!

    1st however, is not!!!
