Verizon Motorola Droid product page prematurely published

Either someone at Motorola suffers from premature posting, or they're running a particularly arch teaser campaign; the product page for the Motorola Droid for Verizon has appeared and then been rapidly pulled, but not quickly enough to prevent its specs from going public.  We now know for certain that the Verizon Droid has a 3.7-inch 16:9 aspect 480 x 854 touchscreen, 5-megapixel autofocus camera with 4x digital zoom and dual-LED flash, and a 1,400mAh battery which, Motorola claim, is good for up to a respectable 385 minutes of talktime and 270 hours standby.

Under the hood things are kept ticking over with an unspecified 550MHz processor, while connectivity includes EVDO Rev.A, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth, GPS and a micro USB port; unfortunately for frequent travellers, there's no sign of HSPA support for outside of the US.  Motorola are also slotting a 16GB microSD card into the Verizon Droid as standard, and the whole thing weighs 6oz and measures a pocket-friendly 2.4 x 4.6 x 0.5 inches.

It's shaping up to be quite the Android stormer, and we're not surprised that Motorola want to drum up excitement (if it really is a purposeful leak).  No word on price or availability - we'll want to be looking to Verizon for that - but if the countdown clock is to be believed then we should expect the Droid to get its official debut, at least, by the end of this month.
