Could the Motorola Shadow be the next in line to be named the Nexus Two?

This article contains unofficial information.

Could the Motorola Shadow be the next in line to be named the Nexus Two?
If you thought that the QWERTY packing Motorola DROID was RAZR-like in form factor, then we may all be surprised by Motorola’s next working project. We’ve already seen some leaked render shots of the alleged Motorola Shadow that hinted to a slimmer looking handset with an HDMI port. Now there are more rendered shots of this smartphone which is rumored to possibly be the next in line to be graced with the Nexus Two moniker from Google. As we previously reported, it’s rumored to pack a 4.3” display with a resolution of 800 x 484 pixels – all neatly packed into a thin white outer shell. Even the QWERTY keyboard looks to retain the same layout that made the DROID extremely compact – plus there’s a wrist strap from the looks of it.

wrist strap? really? Something tells me that the people looking for a high powered android device are not the same market of people that want their cell phone to be hanging from their wrist

hey if it keeps a $500+ device from hitting the floor, it sounds like a money saver to me. And I'm sure (like the Nintendo Wii) the user has a choice to use it or not. I'm with you on the fact I wouldn't use it, but I'm sure someone will.

i have been a moto fan since the razr came out. despite all the hate, the razr changed the cell phone world with how thin it was for the time. afterwards, every other phone maker strived to make phones more thin. thats cool and all, but unfortunately, after the hype died down moto had nothing new to offer and continued to rehash the razr with failed attempts. now moto is back on the scene like they never left with the assistance of the android os. they have done well with the droid, cliq, etc and will probably continue to do so. one warning though: dont follow in your own footsteps again by making every new phone to be designed after a huge hit (aka the droid). has anyone else noticed this, am i just loopy, or what?

Good point. It may be one of those "stick with what got you here" kind of thing for Moto. Outside the Razor line, it was all about those rugged Nextel handsets. Now that that business has disolved, we will see if Moto is indeed a One Trick Pony.

Moto also made the Q which lead the way for compact smartphones.

so this is supposed to be the exact contender to the hd2 huh? in stead of one upping htc and goin for a 4.5 they matched... cant blame them for following in already traversed territory but most moto phones are the equivalent of someone who cant walk and chew gum at the same time.

Josuearisty, I'm going to arrest you for sucky grammar. Design * Revolutionize * RAZR * Btw, this won't revolutionize anything if it has a wrist strap on it -_-

I highly doubt the strap will stay. Considering like 75% of Android owners are men.
