Motorola DROID Shadow/Xtreme/X is coming in July & DROID 2 in August?
The long days of summer are upon us right now and we've already begun to see some top notch smartphones kicking up the sand – signaling one long hot summer filled with plenty of fun. Motorola is still enjoying some brisk sales for its DROID, which in fact, kicked off Android's major push into the smartphone market. Although the torch seems to be handled in the mean time by the HTC EVO 4G, Motorola is lurking in the shadows as we've seen a decent amount of material regarding their new, but yet to be officially announced Android handsets. One of BGR's sources has hinted that the the first device, the keyboard-less Motorola DROID Shadow/Xtreme/X, is speculated to be launching in July with “Shadow BLUR” running on top of Android 2.1. On the other hand, the Motorola DROID 2 will be waiting until August to take flight as it's rumored to run Android 2.2 Froyo from the onset. Although there are plenty of noticeable differences between the two handsets, it's being said that they will both be packing OMAP3630 processors.

The Droid 2 is going under the old adage. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". The Droid (1) is a fine phone. So Motorola wants to keep most the same. I don't blame them.

That's a good point and a basic philosophy I hope RIM continues to keep for their hardware. They need to step up some portions of their software though.

Let's hope they don't do this for the next 5 years the way they made like 20 versions of the Razr lol. But I do agree the Droid is a good phone so it would make sense at this time.

Wow, this is amazing. It's okay for RIM and Droid 2 to make minor adjustments to previous versions of their phone but if Apple makes larger than minor adjustments then the whole world flips. I mean, since when was Apple broken? I'm seeing a lot of hypocrisy here. It's pretty outstanding.

huge difference between apples and rim's 3 years to droids less than 1 on the market. ive said apple isnt the problem, at&t's crappy service is. however between the iphone or the evo 4g, the evo 4g is just simply faster at everything. and yes to the person a couple comments above, i really hope RIM does something with there software because they are outdated by years and years.
