Verizon Drops Motorola Droid Price, Xtreme Release Imminent?

Seven months later and Verizon finally drops the price of the Motorola Droid to $149.99 on contract.  Does this mean that the Droid X (Xtreme) or Droid 2 are ready to be announced?  We’ve talked about a possible Father’s Day release, but figured July seemed more likely after hearing new hints from our sources.  And since the Xtreme has been leaking out for some time now, and we were the first to show you the Droid 2 only yesterday, I would bet that the we’ll see the newly named “Droid X” within a few weeks.

Cheers thejupiter!

    Existing Verizon customers can upgrade their phone and keep their current unlimited data plan.

    So i’m not afraid to buy the apps in the market, knowing that it’ll work on any other phone i buy in the future!

    Thats really cool, Verizon finally drops the price of the Motorola Droid to $149.99 on contract…price drop appears to be temporary as part of Verizon’s new “10 days of sweet deals” …

  • NewForeclosureOnline Com97

    Motorola’s Android plans look to have been scooped somewhat,.. the Motorola Droid Xtreme MB810 cropping up in Verizon’s database…good to know this and also that Verizon finally drops the price of the Motorola Droid to $149.99 on contract.

    This Verizon’s website often lowers prices on phones, that are exclusive to the site and not done in stores..Thanks for sharing with us

  • jessicayeuri

    New updates for this surfaces that it would have a soft launch and official launch. See the hidden goodies inside from star wars!.

  • Anonymous54

    this phone has been $99 at Best Buy for a long time, I got mine in january there and no stupid rebates either

  • sebas77

    does the extreme have a QWERTY keyboard as well? I've seen diff pics of it an very few “leaked” pics have it slid out to reveal a keyboard, so im confused?!?!

  • Tincanpuller

    What kind of deal is that? We just got 2 of them for $198 And a two-yr contract. 7 days ago.

    As for those $19.99 deals, I checked them all out and all were more expensive after adding higher priced 2-yr contracts than just getting all right from Verizon.

    The only one that looked better than Verizon was Costco but they had no phones in stock.

  • skltr21

    i need help people…… im having issues with gmail on my droid. i am rooted using cyanogen 5.0.7.1 and. i can receive emails just fine but it wont let me send any emails from my phone. i type out an email and hit send and it just says “sending” next to it forever, but never sends it. any help??? any ideas on what i can do to fix this issue?

  • Dpu328

    Would love to know more spec for X

  • Dpu328

    Off subject sorry. After all my wifi trouble shooting, it seems it works fine. just not with my home connection. It connect with a very strong signal. Just won't do anything. Ideas?

    • Wolfie99_1999

      Check to see if you have the correct wep security key for your phone. That’s if you use a secure network at home.

    This does not necessarily mean anything. Verizon's website often lowers prices on phones, that are exclusive to the site and not done in stores.

  • caphoagie

    Is the 149 price still the bogo

  • chris

    I hope there will be some type of early upgrade promotion for original droid owners. If not ill wait and see if the 2ghz beast comes to verizon.. or the htc scorpion

    • Admsteck

      Good luck with that one! I am a Verizon customer and currently have the BlackBerry Storm (I'm switching to Android as soon as my 'new every two' is up). When the Storm 2 came out a few months later I asked several times and they gave no options other than pay full retail.

      • azurikai

        yeah i was stuck with a storm, bought it on the day it came out. then one day all of the leaked OS updated i jammed into the thing made the device crap out hahaha, and then i put the VZW approved OS back on, and it still was crapped out. I went to my VZ store and they gave me a droid VERY cheap because of my troubles hahaha :) best day ever, LOVE THIS PHONE!

        the thing i love about android too btw, this is random, but its that knowing that Android OS will continue, so i'm not afraid to buy the apps in the market, knowing that it'll work on any other phone i buy in the future! whereas with my old Storm, i was terrified to buy anything because BB just seemed to suck all around in my eyes.

    :O Cant wait :O Hopefully the full specs will be revealed.

  • Dooliedoo

    I returned my droid incredible to get the Moto Extreme…….cant wait!!!!!

    • I LOVE BEER

      I might do the same! I'll miss the AMOLED screen though.

      • http://www.facebook.com/theineffablebob Anthony Lim

        I won't miss barely being able to see in sunlight, though!

        • I LOVE BEER

          True!

    Fathers day is in 9 days. I doubt they will announce it AND have it available for purchase before then.

    • cduce2411

      I really hope it's announced that day, though. I am enjoying my Droid a lot, but the 4.3 inch screen is hard to pass up. So is the Quadrant benchmark.

      • Niver

        I highly doubt they will release it on fathers day. I work for verizon, and we haven't even received a demo of it yet.

        • cduce2411

          If it is released in July-August, I'll be alright.

          • Niver

            Should definitely be out by then.

          • cduce2411

            K Thanks

  • nkhex19

    As long as I don't manually boot into recovery I have no issues with Rom Manager.

    Down only $50? Wth…

  • Jeremyc1331

    Does anyone else have any problems with ROM Manger not working on the 2.2 build?

    • Mrpicolas

      Uninstall and reinstall then flash clockwork then sp recovery then clockwork again don't know why but fir some reason this resolves most issues. :-)

      • Chris Nimon

        how cool is it that you can usually get quick help on this site?

        • Mrpicolas

          Let me know if that works if not try flashin an older recovery. :-)

        • kellex

          Who needs a forum? :P

          • Jeremyc1331
