Verizon To Release Two Motorola Android Handsets in July

Douglas Carter

The Wall Street Journal wrote today about Sanjay Jha, Motorola co-Chief Executive, mentioning that Motorola will introduce two new Droid products with Verizon Wireless this June. Motorola's smartphone division is throwing it's resources behind Android right now, in the hopes that with the launch of the devices this July on Verizon, they can turn a profit.

Engadget is asserting that the Droid Shadow is one of the two phones being released. AndroidandMe thinks that the second device will be the Motorola FlipOut, targeted at a younger audience. However, if we dig into Lowell McAdam's comment about the Droid name, then the FlipOut gets thrown out of the list of two. Here is what he said:

"If [customers] think Android, that's the generic. If they think Droid, that's going to be the latest and the greatest on our network."

The Droid Shadow is pretty much guaranteed to be one of the devices. As for the second phone to be released in July under the Droid branding, I put my money on the device pictured in my story here, even though details/leaks related to the device are still scarce.
