Motorola is set to officially announce the Droid for Verizon on October 28th, but it popped up on Moto's official site with full specs and more detail than we've seen so far.

This leak (or whatever it is) confirms a lot of things we already knew: The Droid will be packing Android 2.0 (Eclair), has a 3.7-inch touchscreen, 5MP camera (with 4x zoom and autofocus), blah blah blah. It also will have a "Notification Panel," which could be a light like the alert light BlackBerrys have had for years (that's not a dig, it's an extremely useful feature), a 1400mAh battery (rated at 385 minutes usage, 270 hours standby), pretty extensive audio and video codec support, a video camera, microUSB port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. It's also listed as having the WebKit HTML 5 browser with Flash 10 support, though the Flash is noted to be arriving sometime in 2010. Plus, it comes with a 16GB microSDHC card for media or whatever.


This handset is shaping up to be a mighty impressive piece of hardware. Check back with us in the coming days for more info as we get it. [Boy Genius Report]
