Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola's consumer business and mobile devices division, confirmed a 2 GHz smartphone by the end of the year.

The members of the Executives Club of Chicago were treated to some of Motorola's CEO upcoming plans during a speech today.   Jha said that he believed that most corporate workstations would be replaced by smartphones in two years.

To demonstrate how quickly smartphones are changing, he said expects Motorola to have a 2GHz 'superphone' ready for the holidays.  Another exec got a little bit more detailed on this phone:

It will be based on Android, and include, like the iPhone 4, a gyroscope and add an Nvidia Tegra-based graphics processor with full Flash 10.1 hardware acceleration. It appears that the 2 GHz chip will be an evolutionary step above the current 1 GHz Snapdragon chip.
