Many of us have been referring to the Motorola Shadow and Droid 2 as the same device, but new evidence suggest we have two distinct phones. Motorola is reportedly launching two smartphones on Verizon in July, but we never expected two high-end devices would launch so close to each other.
The Motorla Shadow (MB810) is a touchscreen only phone we have seen pictured several times now. Verizon is already printing user manuals for this device so chances are high it comes in July. The Shadow is said to be roughly 9 mm in thickness and does not feature a QWERTY keyboard.
Update: The Motorola MB810 has also appeared in Verizon’s inventory system.
Now Droid Life has spotted a new phone in Verizon’s inventory system that is labeled the Motorola Droid 2 (A955). This matches up nicely with a new picture of a keyboard that appeared on Engadget today. The source claims the keyboard is from the same A955 model and we can see from the keyboard buttons that it is an Android phone.
Do you think Motorola will really launch two flagship devices on the same carrier in the same month? If so, are you going to opt for the physical keyboard or go with the slimmed down slate design?
