Motorola Shadow surfaces again, gets Wi-Fi Alliance certificateAri Robbins - Contributing Editor
Well, what have we here? It looks like the W-iFi Alliance certified a new Motorola smartphone today! The Motorola MB810 just popped up on the WFA site having received certification for IEEE Standard 802.11b/g/n. If the model number doesn't sound familiar to you, maybe the rumored name will ring a bell. Mid-January of this year a Motorola device with a full QWERTY slider keyboard popped up on the scene briefly, some were calling it the Motorola Shadow and others named it the Nexus Two.
In any case this could be the very same device, and after doing a little research all signs are pointing to the Shadow. Some of the rumored specs of the Shadow are as follows:
- 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen
- Full QWERTY slider keyboard
- 8MP Camera with autofocus
- microSD up to 32GB
- Android 2.2 (Froyo)
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (clearly)
- Bluetooth 2.1
It looks like the Shadow is a GSM device and will probably be headed to AT&T. The phone is rumored to be released in Q2 2010 which means you could be hearing a lot more about the Shadow soon and potentially have one in your hands by the end of the summer. We'll be keeping a close eye on this one, so keep checking the site for updates.
OK slider fans, I know you've been waiting for this one, so lets hear it in the comments!
