From Htcyou: Before the end of the year, Motorola will have an Android 2.2 FroYo smartphone that is powered by a 2GHz processor (battery life grimaces) with NVIDIA’s Tegra chip. Stateside, Motorola has kept fairly quiet in the midst of paramount launches from closest Android rival HTC, but with the Droid Xtreme, Droid 2, and the 2GHz model set for Q3-Q4 releases, the American phone corporation should strike back intensely.
