Moto Rising (Part II): Droid Succession
A day after the first post on Motorola’s new rise with the Android devices, we had speculated about Moto’s future flagship. Fortuitously, Moto seems to be readying its future flagship and this post covers the Droid II (or possibly Nexus Two)
Shadow, Droid II, Nexus Two: The device and the names may be confusing, but amidst all confusion what comes through is that Motorola is at it, releasing smartphone after smartphone and this time it looks like it is the successor of Droid, the Droid II that Moto is readying laying to rest the question: What after Droid?
There are two stories on Droid II and Nexus Two. One that The Nexus Two has become Droid II which means there is no Nexus two in ranks. The second is that the device has two variants: Nexus Two (without the Keyboard) and Droid II (with the keyboard). Motorola Shadow / Droid 2 / Nexus Two will have a 4.3″ touchscreen with 854 x 480 pixels resolution and 8MP camera with dual LED flash and HD video recording (most likely 720p) plus an HDMI out. Other spec includes the TI OMAP 3630 processor clocked at 720MHz, 512MB RAM, Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR (or maybe v2.2 Froyo) in a very thin and light body. The Droid II/ Nexus Two will also sport a WiFi readiness.
The heartening thing in the whole story is the rise of Moto and its Android machines. Slightly let down with the “almost” Droid looks though. Lets hope Droid II does what its designated to and proves Moto detractors “One Pony Moto story” wrong.
