Verizon’s DROID brand now exclusive to Motorola

Rumors have been floating around for about half a year now, but it has finally happened: the DROID brand has found exclusivity with a single manufacturer. That manufacturer released three new DROID branded phones today, and that’s Motorola.

This means other manufacturers that have traditionally made a few DROID devices will no longer be allowed to do so. The likes of the DROID Incredible 4G LTE by HTC and the DROID Charge by Samsung will no longer be made (thank gods). Considering that both HTC and Samsung have moved to selling phones on all carriers at once, it doesn’t seem like it’ll affect them. However, Motorola has made few phones for other carriers and has chosen to focus on Verizon.

This decision will benefit Motorola, to an extent, because it’ll give them a clearer brand image and give Verizon’s brand more cohesiveness. However, we are sure Motorola will pursue other carriers under Google’s rule. The Moto X is proof of that. What do you think of this decision? Will this benefit Motorola and Verizon? Or will this just hold Motorola back? Leave a comment!
