Motorola Shadow is in the limelight yet again

The Motorola Shadow has not exactly been living up to its name lately. We caught a few choice glimpses of it at the end of April, then a shot of its user manual was splashed across the internet, just yesterday it was caught pumping iron in Washington, and finally today we have it posing on a desk for all to see.

This most recent photo comes courtesy of longtime Howard Forums user wnrussell, the same gentleman that brought us the user manual image last week.

While we have now seen almost every square inch of the Shadow (or the Extreme/Xtreme) the specs haven’t quite come into focus yet. As wnrussell by all appearances has the device in hand — rather than simply having some time with the device prior to its proper owner laying claim to it — I’m slightly more inclined to trust his version of what is going on inside the newest member of the Droid family.

Combining his newest report with our previous information we come up with these specs:

  • Verizon
  • 4.1″  TFT FWVGA screen
  • 720 MHz OMAP 3630 Processor
  • 8 GB of internal storage
  • 8 MP Camera
  • 720p Video Recording
  • mini-HDMI out
  • Wifi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • MicroSD support up to 32GB
  • ~9mm at the bottom of the device flaring to ~11mm at the top
  • Android 2.1 or possibly 2.2 with a new version of MOTOBLUR
  • Launch window: July-August

Other than the bump in screen size this doesn’t seem like anything to make a new Incredible owner too jealous, but if Motorola has managed to match the sturdy build quality of the Droid with the speed of the Incredible they are at least offering Verizon customers a compelling alternative.
