Verizon has apparently begun the process of retiring two of their DROID-branded devices. Both the HTC DROID DNA and the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE are now to be sold off, according to promos sent to sales reps. It seems Verizon wants to get rid of their remaining stock, but why?
With the DroidLanding Twitter account reaction and the HTC One to hit shelf sometime this summer, it’s easy to assume that they’re making room for new devices. One of those is definitely the HTC One, but from what we know, it won’t be a “DROID” branded device. If they’re ridding their lineup of DROID devices, something should replace it.
Given the HTC Butterfly S announcement, we have a suspicion that we might see a successor to the DROID DNA on Verizon. (The original Butterfly, or HTC DLX, was released in the US as the DROID DNA). We have spotted mentions of the DLXPLUS in Verizon systems, so the release of the Butterfly S may bring Verizon one step closer to releasing the DROID DNA+, or whatever they choose to call it.
We don’t know exactly what’s coming, but it’s going to be pretty big. And of course, we’re excited. What device would you like to see come to Verizon? Leave a comment!
