After yesterday’s mildly-dubious Motorola Shadow leak, the handset has shown up in the wild again, this time courtesy of HowardForums. We described the Shadow as Motorola’s version of the HTC EVO 4G, only without the WiMAX, and that continues to look roughly true; like the EVO 4G the Motorola handset has both microUSB and mini HDMI connections, but it has a 4.1-inch display and a 720MHz OMAP3630 processor.
There’s also 8GB of onboard memory and a microSD card slot, together with an 8-megapixel camera. According to HowardForums member wnrussell, who took the above photo, the Shadow feels lighter in the hand than the Motorola DROID, likely a side-effect of losing the slide-out keyboard mechanism. Previous rumors had tipped the Shadow as hitting the market in June or July 2010, on the Verizon network.[via Engadget]
