Motorola Droid specs leak ahead of Verizon event

In what is either an internal foul-up at Motorola or a clever marketing ploy, the full specs for the Motorola Droid device, Verizon Wireless' highly anticipated Android phone, were leaked, briefly onto Motorola's website. The leak comes days ahead of an invitation-only event where Verizon presumably will unveil the Droid.

Some new details about the smartphone emerged from the leaked specs. On a promotional website, Verizon touted some of the features of the phone, including "5 megapixels," "Android 2.0," "video," "mulitasking" and "notification panel."

According to the specs, the Droid will have a CDMA EV-DO Rev. A connection, a 3.7-inch WVGA display, a 550 MHz processor, Bluetooth, 802.11b/g WiFi and a pre-installed 16GB microSD card. The phone also will have GPS, a micro USB connection, and the phone's 5-megapixel camera will have 4x digital zoom, auto-focus and dual-LED flash.

Meanwhile, Verizon has sent invitations to a Droid-themed event on Oct. 28, in which the operator plans to unleash the "must-have device of the year." Verizon's clear message: the ball's in your court, iPhone.
