Motorola Droid Shadow: HTC Evo 4G for Verizon

By Peter Chubb - May 25, 2010

We have known about the Motorola Droid Shadow for almost two months now, which as we know will become the successor to the current Motorola Droid model. It is no secret that the current model is already looking old and has been compared to a slim brick – one of our readers suggested that this latest model will become the HTC EVO 4G for Verizon.

You have to admit this does make perfect sense; even Andy Harrison from ozcarguide has weighed in on this by saying that the Motorola Droid Shadow would be the outcome if the HTC Droid Incredible and the EVO 4G were to get together for a one-night stand.

Sprint knows that they are on to a good thing with the EVO 4G, as is will become the first fully working 4G smartphone – as well as being able to handle the standard 3G network as well.

Motorola have realized the error of its ways when it went for a slide-out QWERTY keyboard – so have addressed this problem and removed this feature from the Shadow. This will do two things – reduce the weight and make the smartphone look much sexier.

Expect to see Verizon’s answer to the EVO 4G in July.
