While it has been obvious to anyone reading the variety of blogs out there, the Motorola DROID Shadow is the upcoming Droid on Verizon, by Motorola. But just in due time, the Wall Street Journal has come out with a new story claiming that Motorola has made a new deal with Verizon, and will produce the DROID Shadow, as well as a new, un-named, un-seen, and unknown Android phone. Okay then, Moto. We’re ready.
The hardest cycle here though is the Droid branding, as Lucasfilm owns it from the Star Wars series, and therefore Verizon must pay them to keep their mouths tight and shut. Then of course HTC is using the Droid branding for the even more sought after HTC DROID Incredible (due to Samsung AMOLED shortages), which takes a large chunk out of the market share previously acquired through the sales of the uber-popular Motorola Droid.
