Motorola sees shortages of the DROID
Jha was speaking at an Executives Club event and announced that his company would be launching 2 to 4 handsets with a front facing camera, before the end of the year. This will help the manufacturer compete with the video calling features on the EVO 4G and the new iPhone 4. Verizon followed up on the Motorola offering with the HTC Droid Incredible which featured a faster 1GHz Snapdragon processor and an 8MP camera. However, shortages of parts used to make the Samsung manufactured 3.7 inch AMOLED display has led to long wait times for Big Red customers, some of whom turned to the Motorola device instead. One advantage that DROID users have is that because their phone runs stock Android, it is expected to receive upgrades faster than other phones with MOTOBLUR or Sense loaded over the Android OS. Many expect the model to be the next in line to receive the Android 2.2 Froyo upgrade. A sequel model to the DROID has recently been photographed and a keyboard allegedly belonging to the DROID 2 (A955) has also been snapped.
