Welcome back to the countdown! We are on Day #5 and finally going to talk about what's rumoured to be coming to Verizon! Day #4 we ended our little walk-through of Verizon's current line-up of Android phones and my love of the Droid Incredible by HTC and that I think its the phone to beat!
Now onto the phones that could be coming to Verizon that could actually dethrone the Incredible. There are currently 2 contenders from Motorola who announced they would be bringing 2 Android phones to Verizon in July. Of course they didn't mention which two phones they were launching. Which of course leads to lots of rumors.
Heard of the Motorola Shadow/Xtreme? Supposedly. to be a beast of a phone with a 4.1" FVGA touch-screen, a 700mhz processer, 8mp camera capable of 720p and an hdmi out, I've heard it'll have Android 2.1, but I've also heard 2.2 I've heard MotoBlur and I've heard no MotoBlur. We'll just have to wait and see what ends up on it at launch. Either way it looks like a pretty impressive phone.
The other is the sequel to the ever popular Motorola Droid, the Droid 2. Not too much is really known about this phone which is probably why some believe this is the same as the Shadow/Xtreme. There are pictures that clearly show the standard buttons ike home, back, etc. But there is also other pics that show a blank. front screen without buttons ala Droid style. Not too mention there are pics of the Droid 2 keyboard. Eventually i'll add pics or links for reference. But otherwise another high-end phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Both phones are definitely knocking loudly on the Droid Incredible's door! Obviously HTC won't take this for too long without stinging back! (sorry I couldn't help it). that's gonna end it for Day #5, come back tomorrow and we'll speculate about the HTC Scorpion!
