I know the feeling. I was about ready to pull the trigger on a DI and then I remembered the Samsung Galaxy S. I really liked what I saw of it over the winter. But it was outta sight, outta mind. Popped back in and decided to wait for it. Then along comes the Shadow. Same size screen and 720p video (two things I really want) just like the GS and without the Samsung OS fluff. Was really wanting the S-AOMLED but I think I can live without it.

The shadow will be plenty thicker than the Inc due to the keyboard which is a deal killer for me. Plus Motorola has never put out a quality smart phone yet, no I dont consider the original Droid "quality". HTC on the other hand puts out quality after quality.

I dont believe Motorola has the engineers to compete with Apple or HTC.

If I am not mistaken the Shadow does not have a keyboard.

At least it happens right before you pull the trigger on a acquiring a new device.

It happens right after I get my new mobile phone or laptop.

Returning Incredible tomorrow, due to the July Droids the W.S.J. announced....
Along with several unfortunate issues I have been experiencing with the Incredible.

I am very pleased and impressed with the engineering etc of the Moto Droid.
Looking forward to the future of Android & Motorola.
Hey I had a Motorola StarTac!

Maybe I am wrong, but I believe the Shadow to not have a keyboard and the Droid 2 to have one.

Motorola Shadow prototype caught in wild? | Android Community

Doesn't look to have one, but I guess it could.

Even the sites posting the news still call it the Shadow Droid 2 what kind of name is that? The shadow is going to be the Droid Extreme from what i've seen from the inventory screenshots.... http://androidforums.com/motorola-shadow/85827-official-motorola-shadow-pre-release-thread.html

I am guessing that the dimensions are relatively close to the HTC HD2.
