New DROID tablet headed to Verizon?

droidlanding droid tablet

Verizon’s DroidLanding Twitter account has been back in action for the past week, teasing what seems to be a new DROID device right around the corner. And we have every reason to believe it’s a Motorola tablet.

The tweet announcing that something else is going on is just as cryptic as ever:


 

The video that’s linked to in the tweet is a full four-minute mini James Bond style movie that Verizon has been chopping up to air on TV to advertise the new DROID Ultra and Maxx. The story isn’t finished though, and our hero is on the quest to deliver a “case” that appears to have fallen into the wrong hands.

As for what’s in that case, it looks suspiciously like a tablet sleeve. We really can’t imagine what else it could be. Shortly after posting the video, and asking for theories on what the case could contain, DroidLanding retweeted someone guessing it’s a tablet. That’s not exactly confirmation, but it’s pretty close.

Verizon is still dedicated to the DROID brand and isn’t afraid to slap the name on tablets as well as phones. We’re well overdue for a new DROID tablet, so the timing makes sense. New phones do not. Motorola would have to be the manufacturer, becuase they have exclusive rights to the DROID name now. And CEO Dennis Woodside has shared that Motorola is working on a tablet, presumably one that would work with MotoMaker, but could just as well be put into a custom DROID housing for Verizon.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on DroidLanding to see if anything else pops up before an official announcement.

    I’m all for Motorola putting out a new tablet, but the very fact it will no doubt be exclusive to Verizon and require a contract to purchase means I wouldn’t even consider it. There are way too many other tablet choices out there to lock myself in for two years on a tablet that, while I’m sure will be great, won’t be THAT much more impressive than a Samsung or Asus or Nexus tablet.

    I really dislike the fact that Verizon is still branding their devices as if it’s something completely different from Android all together. As long as all eyes are on them they can rack in the money. It won’t even sell that good. The Droid brand has died shortly after the first Droid phone was released. That was their best and only successful effort honestly. Moto has a good idea of making a device solid, long battery life, and extending the screen as far as it can go right now, but all of that is poorly executed with this exclusiveness. I feel their very static and not really moving forward. Companies are simply launching devices just because. And when it cans in the trash they’ll just come with something different but not much different from what they’ve done in the past.
