Motorola to produce 20 "unique" Android devices during the remainder of the year

Motorola to produce 20
Motorola has truly pushed the envelope of design with its Android devices. Starting with the indestructible, tank-like DROID, the Schaumburg based firm has introduced us to the unique folding BACKFLIP , the square form factor FLIPOUT and apparently will soon go to the XTREME with a 4.1 inch screen. But the rest of the year should see much more in the way of Android launches from the manufacturer. Tom Satchwell, Motorola's director of marketing for mobile devices, says the company will be offering 20 unique devices over the next 7 months. What is interesting about this is that last year, as we reported, CEO Sanjay Jha said that Motorola would make at least 20 smartphones in 2010. Now, with the first blush of success, Motorola is seeking to build more than 20 phones for the entire year. Verizon is expected to grab 2 of the Android phones next month as we already told you, most likely the super spec'd XTREME and the sequel to the hugely successful Motorola DROID.

Well, thats their desicion. Some people will buy low-end phones, and others high-end. The thing is that each of the products they sell should be update as well.

Yeah, but to offer maybe 2 low end, 2 mid level, and 2 high end android devices seems it would solve the issue. No exclusive contracts and they can focus on making those great.
