A follow up to the Nexus One, Google's first self-branded smartphone, has been talked about since before the release of the original and speculation is now suggesting that a Motorola mobile could be chosen to fulfil that role.
The Motorola Shadow, which looks rather like an updated version of the Milestone, will feature a 4.3 inch touchscreen, an eight megapixel camera and a full QWERTY keypad housed beneath the top half.
The Shadow has already been confirmed for a late-2010 release, but Motorola could well be tempted to rebrand the phone as the Nexus Two given the lucrative partnership with Google that this could forge.
The Shadow looks great in the preview images that have appeared and from a technical point of view it sounds pretty impressive.
It should be able to shoot video in full HD and it will also have an HDMI output, allowing you to connect it up to an HDTV and view your clips in high definition.
Experts have noted that Sony Ericsson is also set to launch an Android-based smartphone with similar capabilities in the near future and it is hoping that the Xperia X10 will be able to make a significant impact in an increasingly difficult market.
