Android-powered Motorola Xtreme heading to Verizon?
Android has really played a vital role for Motorola. The company was having a difficult time before it finally jumped on the Android bandwagon and dropped the CLIQ and DROID on T-Mobile and Verizon respectively. Since then, it has been launching new Android handsets regularly, eventually reviving its business and making it to prime time again.

Undoubtedly, it was mainly the success of the DROID that helped the company get on its feet. After it, the manufacturer released the DEVOUR with Verizon, but it didn't really gain much popularity. It's now said however that Motorola is gearing up to launch a third Android phone through the nation's leading carrier. According to the rumors, the carrier will begin testing a handset by the name of Motorola Xtreme, starting next week. Unfortunately, no other information regarding this phone is available as of now, but we hope that more details will come out shortly. By the way, what do you think of the Motorola Xtreme's name?

I think Motorola tried a little to hard with the name...I think the name is extreme lol. But in all honesty the name does not fit a phone at all. Unless of course its like an unbreakable phone that can take a beaten.

I have to agree, with a name like the Xtreme, why not make it a durable phone. Sprint has one coming, why cant Big Red?

You are missing some kick ass rock if "More Than Words" is the only Extreme song you know. Kick ass...compared to "More Than Words" at least.

Xtreme sounds lame. And I'm uncertain if Moto can top the Droid. I'm no fan of their products, but I came very close to buying a Droid.

Xtreme...doesn't really do it..but that doesn't matter coz it'll probably be called THE MOTOROLA DROID XTREME! and THAT i like. [: as for speculation as to where this thing will go in the line up, it'll probably be your Motorola Candy Bar alternative to add something to really compete with the Incredible.
