Verizon to offer two more Motorola Android models in July?
The first time Verizon, Google and Motorola got together, the result was impressive indeed as the Motorola DROID in is first 74 days sold more units than the first-gen iPhone did thanks to a great phone and a $100 million ad campaign. There is no underestimating the affect that this phone has had on the industry as it paved the way for he beginning of  the powerful momentum for Android devices that culminates June 4th with the launch of the HTC EVO 4G.The Motorola/Google/Verizon partnership worked so well that the WSJ is reporting that the trio will launch two more smartphones (Android, we'd bet) by the end of July. One of the phones expected to get launched is the DROID SHADOW/MB810. We recently passed on the story about how this model was found in a Verizon-used gym with what appeared to be a 4.1 inch display. Even though the guy that got canned from BigRed was not the guy who sent pictures to Gizmodo, he and his buddy got to play around with the phone which they called the fastest one they have ever used. No QWERTY keyboard was seen on this phone. The second Motorola Android device for Verizon could be the DROID 2 although a July launch would mean that the original DROID would have had just 7-8 months to have made its mark on the world. While Verizon holds the trademark on the "Droid" name, Motorola is sill losing $22 per phone shipped, the same figure that Palm was losing before getting bought out by HP. Hmmm.
