IPhone on Verizon - Is DROID Dead?

By January 11, 2011

Follow me on:

Verizon made it official and announced that a CDMA version of the iPhone would be coming to their network. They also made relatively few announcements about new DROID phones last week at CES. Does that mean they're backing off from the DROID brand?

Most likely not. The primary DROID they'll be carrying this year, the DROID Bionic is a very powerful phone with 4G network speeds and a speedy Tegra 2 processor, and the iPhone 4 will only be able to get slower 3G speeds.  The iPhone agreement is also non-exclusive, so other networks could pick it up as well.

There's also still February, when the Mobile World Congress is held and a lot of phone announcements are made, and there were several new phones announced by manufacturers that didn't have official Verizon names yet.

Meanwhile, this iPhone agreement could be very good news for AT&T users who wanted an Android phone. The most exciting phone announced last week, the Motorola Atrix, was slated for AT&T.
