Motorola/Google/Verizon partnership? Since the !@#$ when? VZW just understands that a wide variety of hot Android phones is what is HOT right now and they are taking advantage of it. Funny how the # 2 carrier is almost completely avoid Androids. Sprint is doing good enough now that they have the EVO but Tmo (my carrier) feels like the only people who want an Android smartphone are 17 year olds who update their status and text their parents. Not failing, but slacking.

What's "hot" right now? Verizon, Motorola and Google created the hotness, dummy. You sound bitter because you need a new carrier and TMobile has sucky phones.

Verizon doesn't own the trademark on the Droid name. Read the fine print on an ad sometime. "Droid" is a registred trademark of Lucasfilms : D

You are right they don't own the "droid" name but Im sure they had to shell out tons of money to be able to use it exclusively. Good move by VZW if you ask me.

The Droid name is so popular, you hear people asking for them on all networks, but then the company says they don't offer Droids but they offer Android phones.

You clearly have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Pull your head out of your ass and go eat a whole bottle of Tylenol.

I still dont see how Motorola is losing $22 a handset when they sell a Droid. That makes no friggin sense. No company would ever do something like that. They have to be making some type of profit off the device. Otherwise, they are losing in the end and no partnership ever wants to see that happening. I can see the Droid Shadow coming out and I know Motorola is making a tablet with Google on it. I asked the motorola rep told me she really couldn't talk about it. I am sure that will be out by fall though.

I will admit - I would rather own an HTC ANDROID model phone than MOTOROLA, but I am willing to give moto a chance. BROKENIMAGE - SONY was losing over 150.00 on their high-end PS3 units and are probably losing more.....companies will lose money if it means building a customer base. Of course, SONY has several divisions and I am sure that their bottom line is in the black.

If HTC doesn't move their a**'s with the screens (or Samsung, whoever) then the Incredible will fade away very quickly compared to this "Shadow", if it's as fast as claimed...
