Motorola Droid Xtreme MB810 caught doing its thing in Verizon's system
Who doesn't know the almighty DROID? Who has not heard of it?! Google owes a great deal of Android's success to Motorola and its DROID. A couple weeks ago we heard that the manufacturer is in the works of a new Android-powered handset for Big Red, called Motorola Xtreme, ready to do something that the DEVOUR couldn't - repeat the DROID's success.

[img right [[30777]:"Motorola Droid Xtreme doing its thing in Verizon's system"] /]Now one of our proud tipsters has let us know that the Motorola Xtreme has surfaced in Verizon's inventory system, and it looks like the phone will be dubbed Motorola Droid Xtreme MB810. No more info is available at the moment, but let's spend a minute here to discuss the name of the handset. Some mixed feelings were expressed about the Xtreme's name in our previous news. So what do you think of it now? Is the Droid Xtreme making things better for you, or it's even worse? At least we can hope this would be a handset that would take Android to the extreme (sort of like the HTC EVO 4G). Then we'll be able to stomach the name.

Thanks go to Striker!

Supermega would be a pretty cool name. Droid Supermega. Or maybe Droid Supermassive. Or Droid Black Hole. Or Droid Symmetry. Sorry, I'm a Muse fan. :P

If there are going to end up being about 20493 different "Droid" phones, I personally think they should take a page from Capcom's book. I am pretty sure I couldn't keep myself from buying a "Motorola Droid: Special Champion Edition."

This is kinda like when they changed the name of the HTC Incredible to HTC Droid Incredible. anyone who buying that phone is going to already know that it is an android. putting droid in the name just makes it more confusing for people who dont know what the difference between motto droid and android devices.

Verizon puts Droid in their high end phones because of the moto droid. The name droid included, they hope it will sell better.

why cant they just name it ... droid 2.0...i think they are going with words that are pretty much in the same class... droid, droid incredible, droid xtreme, droid fantastic, droid excelence etc.....seems like the theme to me..lets just hope the phones are much better then the names..
