Launched by Verizon in November last year, the Motorola Droid is still one of the carrier’s best-selling smartphones, even though the newer HTC Droid Incredible has also been launched not long ago.
According to Reuters, Motorola’s CEO Sanjay Jha recently declared that “Droid sales are going extremely well.” However, it seems that Motorola can’t produce as many Droids as it would want, because it’s facing component shortages – just like HTC with its Droid Incredible.
Discussing about what’s next in Moto’s phone line-up, Sanjay Jha said that two to four new phones with front-facing cameras for video calling will be out this year. Two of these phones might be the Motorola Shadow / Xtreme and the Motorola Droid 2 – although the leaked photos showing the handsets don’t confirm the existence of video-calling cameras.
Verizon currently sells the Motorola Droid for $199.99 on contract. The upcoming Droids will likely have similar prices.
