Motorola Shadow Droid XBASKING RIDGE, USA - The Motorola Shadow, for long leaked and rumoured to be named the Droid 2, will actually debut on Verizon Wireless as the Droid X.

The smartphone has also been further pictured in detail, and its specifications changed. It will not be powered by a Qualcomm 1GHz processor unlike previously thought, but the TI OMAP 3630 chip.

Gadget University's images show a well-lit 4.3" touchscreen display, even though it is not based on AMOLED technology. The same source confirms that the device will run on Google Android 2.1 as of release.

On the other hand, according to BGR, the Motorola Shadow, or Verizon Droid X, will be launched in July this year with the Shadow Blur interface, and Android 2.1.

The Motorola Shadow was first leaked at a Verizon gymnasium by Gizmodo, who initially reported that the device has an 8 megapixel camera with support for HD video recording, a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, and an HDMI-out port.

The Verizon Droid line has worked out very well for the US carrier, who managed to promote its Android portfolio in an attractive manner, and secure a chunk of the competitive US market share. The Droid X will only add positively to this, as well as enable Motorola to gain a market share of its own.
