Default GSM Variant and possible release date?

I've been following this phone but my only problem is that i live in Europe. So its got me thinking, the original Motorola Droid was released on November around the 6th last year. And then the GSM variant was released in Europe in around a month (December 10th) known as the Motorola Milestone.

So is there the chance that a GSM variant of the Shadow will come to Europe since Moto has a track record for doing this? And what are the chances it would come out within the next month or two, rather than like 6 months which i would hate so bad.

I think you guys are getting something similar to the Motoroi, with is the same basic form factor as the shadow.

that's quite a different phone though.. it doesnt really compare to the Shadow. It has a slower processor, and smaller screen. It doesnt really interest me.

The screen may be smaller, but I'm not sure where you're reading that the processor will be slower. Its getting a boost from the SK version and will probably have the exact same processor the shadow/xtreme will have as it seems motorola preffers the OMap chip to the snapdragon.

Motorola Milestone XT720 announced: 8 megapixel cam, 720p video, and Droid heritage (update: video!) -- Engadget

Engadget states its clocked at 550 Mhz

The Shadows is clocked at 720Mhz

But the screen is a big thing for me. Thats why i havent gone for the the Desire or Nexus One, i want a phone with at least a 4 inch screen

Please it's not just about the clockspeed, Mhz is just a tip of the iceberg!!
Although in this case Shadow is much better since it used next generation technology.
