Oops! It looks like a mistake on Motorola's part is giving Google Android and smartphone fans plenty to talk about on this fine Friday morning.

On Thursday night, Boy Genius Report was sent a tip that Motorola had posted an official product page for the upcoming Droid smartphone for Verizon Wireless. The site has since been pulled but not before screen grabs were taken of the feature list and spec sheet.

Some things we already knew about, such as the Android 2.0, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. According to the page, however, the Droid will offer a Webkit HTML 5 browser with Flash 10 coming in 2010 and Microsoft Exchange Outlook and Calendar synchronization. The smartphone will be powered by a 550MHz processor and a 1,400mAh lithium ion battery offering 6.4 hours of continuous talk time and up to 11 days of standby time.

Physically, the phone measures 4.6 inches tall by 2.4 inches wide by 0.5 inch thick and weighs 6 ounces, while the Droid's 3.7-inch, 16:9 touch screen will have a 480x854-pixel resolution. Other notables include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Micro-USB port, and a 16GB microSD card installed on the phone.

Motorola and Verizon will be co-hosting a media event October 28 where we presume they'll officially introduce the Motorola Droid. We'll be there to cover it but in the meantime, what do you think? Is this the iPhone killer that Verizon is making it out to be in its ads?
