Motorola Shadow Passes Through WiFi Alliance

Posted on April 30th, by Evan Selleck in archive. 1 Comment

It’s been a long time since the Motorola Shadow came onto anyone’s radar. Well, at least a few months, but now it seems to be back, better than ever. If a recent report coming out of the WiFi Alliance is to be read correctly, then it looks like the Motorola MB810 might be the codenamed Shadow, which might mean it’ll see another name change before it hits shelves some time in the near future.

The Motorola Shadow was one of the devices named to be the Google Nexus Two, and for good reason. It’s supposedly rocking a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, 8MP camera on the back, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and now Android 2.2 (Froyo). Additionally, it’ll support MicroSD up to 32GB and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n.

While some think this bad boy will show up on Verizon when it supposedly launches some time during the second quarter of 2010, others think it’s a GSM-based device. Well, that’s a 50/50 shot there, so we’ll hold our breath. But, considering the Google Nexus One isn’t doing too hot in the whole CDMA realm of things, we’re going to put our hats in the GSM pot for now. We’ll pass on more as soon as it develops.

    What would make anyone think this is a Nexus Two instead of Droid 2?
