Motorola will be the exclusive provider of DROID devices for Verizon
posted by Michael H. / Jul 23, 2013, 1:52 PM
After today's announcement, Verizon marketing executive Jeff Dietel told CNET that starting with this new line of DROIDs, all DROID devices for Verizon will be made by Motorola. There was no indication that this exclusive deal has a timeline attached to it, so it seems that we should expect Motorola DROIDs for the foreseeable future.
Motorola has been the manufacturer behind the majority of the DROID devices, but there have been a few from HTC and one from Samsung as well. This deal should be very important for Motorola, because the company needs to rebuild its image after such a long time without releasing a new device. Having the Verizon brand and marketing behind Motorola devices can only help on that.

That might be best. HTC made some good Droids too, but for Motorila gave the Droid line all it's best efforts.

Yes, Moto made people to think that Droid series are sleek, great battery life, durability... Where as its reverse in HTC Droid cases...

All that Motorola being the exclusive provider of Droid devices means is that there will not be anymore sequals to the Droid Charge, Droid DNA, & Droid Incredible lines. It doesn't mean that Verizon will be the only ones getting Motorola devices.

When Verizon agreed (curiously belatedly) to carry the One, that looked like the case. And when the Droid Ultra leaked with a 5" screen, it was all but confirmed. Maybe Sprint will get it as an EVO, who knows.

If HTC can fit a 3,200 mAh battery into a 10 mm device with a 5" display, I'm sure they can fit a slightly larger battery (3,500 mAh) onto a device with a 6" display at about 8 or 9 mm. But, if Motorola ever made a phablet, it would probably have a 4,000 mAh battery.
