Motorola: Droid Sales “Extremely” Strong

Even after 7 months of life in the Android world, the Motorola Droid is apparently doing just fine.  Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, told reporters today that their savior is still dominating the smartphone market even as they appear to be suffering from similar component shortages that have plagued the HTC Droid Incredible.

He also announced that Motorola would have 2-4 new devices this year which would have front facing cameras like we’ve now seen on the EVO 4G and the new iPhone.  Unless the Xtreme and Droid 2 undergo last minute face lifts which will include these cameras, it sounds like there might be 2 additional devices to watch out for come the holiday season.  Very exciting.

Oh and this quote from Jha fit nicely into the rumors we’ve been all over…

“(Droid) sales are going extremely well. If I could build more I’d sell more,” Jha said without discussing which components were in short supply.

“Extremely well.”  We’ll all be doing Xtreme-ly well when July gives us 2 new devices.

    Well, the new MILESTONE XT720 has a signed bootloader, i know this one is not in the american market and also, if the new milestone phones doesnt say google experience, you should be aware that you wont be able to load customs roms… motorola is a company that just doesnt get open source community..
    check their europe facebook page, lot of ppl really angry

      LMAO yes welcome to about 2010 1/2ish…….and that's with the new one that isn't even out yet…..We now have another year to totally stomp Apple into the ground and show you what Android can do. Oh and, if you're comparing the 3Gs to the Droid………..no comparison. When 2.2 hits official with the JIT compiler you'll be eating piles of dirt not just dust with your little 3Gs.

    I love my Droid. Last year at this time I hated my Storm.

    Dude I work with just bought his Droid two days ago. Offered to root it for him, but he wasn't interested (can't say I don't blame him). Instead, I hooked him up with Beautiful Widgets and LauncherPro. He was mighty satisfied. :)

            Should do the trick :-)

  • kellex

    I installed new BB and maps were gone, market didnt allow for install, and I actually like the new Froyo launcher instead of his custom version. Back to stock Froyo for me. :)

    • Tonygonzalez319

      So it wasn't all that Kells?….I want to check it out just in case…you know how it is…..

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      They were saying you need to give it time for everything to sync properly…
      Don't hate just because Pete hasnt made you a custom pink rom yet :-P
      jk

      • Tankhand75

        Have you flashed the stock ROM from ROM Manager yet? I'm thinking about doing that till Pete's gets in ttankhandhere.

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          The stock Froyo? Yes I have…

      • kellex

        Hah not hating, I'm just being boring and liking stock right now. And now I'll go cry to myself in the stock corner. :P

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          LMAO, nice….he admits it! :-P
          Obviously you have hundreds of readers here who want to see it though and or who want to know how to flash it.
          Maybe you could post something. Just so my email doesnt get too overcrowded lol

          Think about this!

    • GuanHao

      Hey Kellex, in the end you still prefer Stock (:

      Anyway, Nice Site and Nice News Always!

      My Daily Website to go! :D

    • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

      I was thinking the same thing, was it faster than the stock, or not, that is the real question I have though.

  • http://twitter.com/patrick_ulrich Patrick Ulrich

    I don't think its in ROM Manager yet but you can dl it at http://www.mediafire.com/?xjn3gyyqo5e

    • http://twitter.com/patrick_ulrich Patrick Ulrich

      It was online at Pete's site peteralfonso.com/ for a little while but due to the overwhelming load the server went down.

  • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

    1st…and new BB is up :-)
    Just saying…

    • Tonygonzalez319

      have you installed it yet?

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        I just got back from lunch. So I shall be flashing soon.
        BUT, I might wait for it to be available on ROM manager which will probably be later tonight.
        We shall see.

        • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex
