DROID Red Eyes, A Different One for Each Device

If you look closely at the picture we grabbed from the new Droid X site from Verizon, you’ll notice that the red Droid eyes on each device are completely unique in design.  This was obviously done intentionally and I’m surprised that no one has pointed it out or that Verizon hasn’t made at least a mini-bullet point anywhere about it.  My sources also have confirmed to me that this will continue on into the future with new Droid family members including the Droid 2.  Yep, all Droids will have their own unique red eye, which for whatever reason, I think is pretty cool.

DROID X

You may remember that Droid 2 boot animation we posted along with our exclusive photo shoot??  If not, here is a shot of the red eye featured…

What’s interesting about that shot is the fact that this boot animation is actually the boot animation for the Droid X meaning we’ll have something completely different once the device is made official and loaded with it’s own set of goodies.  So when will Droid Life show everyone the real Droid 2 boot anim?  We already have!

DROID 2

Remember those exclusive commercial slides from Monday?  If you look closely at the “Digits” commercial slide which features the Droid 2, you’ll see the new red eye plain as day.  Here is a close-up…

Not tremendously different than the Droid 1′s but definitely upgraded.  And yes, that’s been confirmed by our sources as well and is definitely the version you’ll see when the device is released in August.

DROID Incredible

And what about the Droid Incredible?  We sort of gave you a version for your Motorola Droid and someone has even patched together one that can be pushed to your DI, but there has been no word as to when the official one will be sent out.  I can say that it was expected to be sent out via OTA to the Incredible already and for whatever reason keeps getting delayed.  I’m wondering if it’ll ship with new Incredibles and their fancy new packaging?

So now that I’ve spoiled the surprise for both new devices, I should probably apologize, but don’t worry, there are plenty more exclusives coming in the near future.  This is just such a fascinating brand and there are so many intricacies that most people overlook and we are hear to point them out!

    um…Droid Eris doesn't have the eye boot animation…..just sayin.

  • gilbert

    the picture of the 1st droids eye…verizon should make the phone design 2 look like that eye and make the phone the shape of the eye..and the red light blinking should be a red eye on the back of the phone…with no battery almost looking like the iphones metal back….thats my idea of the droid…it will look so kool

    love the red eye. it does remind me Space Odessy's Hal. Sonny's voice in iRobot sounds like Hal. and the robotic hand holding the droid looks like iRobot. im just saying

  • Kyuubifreak

    Does the New Droid x have physical keyboard?

  • Flyinion

    I've been using the Matrix one, it's pretty nice. Wish there was a live wallpaper for matrix as good as the boot animation is. The LWP's I've tried all sucked beyond belief. On a side not, anyone know how the heck to post through disqus on here through your Droid? I tried earlier and couldn't get a log in for disqus.

    ok, so a quick question Kellex. do the comments show up on the mobile version? because i thought i had first like 20 minutes ago lol!

    double post sry :P

  • FrenchToast

    Do the comments show up on the mobile version of the website? I thought for some reason I had first about 20minutes ago :P

  • Vertigo13

    I noticed early on, but I still think its a neat little thing to throw in there. Im finally gonna have my T(Gay)-Mobile contract run up on exactly, July 20, 2010… So I'll definitely be snatching this up… and come back to the modern world.

  • timarnette

    So after rebate $199? I hope

    Just got my Incredible yesterday. Nice new packaging and a 2gb card but boring old Verizon boot sequence. Also, bummed about the timing of this finally arriving and the X dropping in a month.

    it's annoying. but you can deposit the $ in your bank account.

    I want my next phone to be called the Drunken Mystique. It will just have a bloodshot eye and when the alarm goes off it'll say “Please god, i'll never drink again”

  • djspikezz

    Your surprised that no one said anything about the different eyes? Is this really Kellex? What did you do with Kellex? :P

    The eyes seemed like an obvious thing to me. They did their job right, cause most of us noticed that as the first thing.

  • IMA_210

    The only Droid not to get's its own eye.. The Droid Eris.

    Even with the new 2.1 software update the lil ole Eris didnt get an eye. My daughter ran her's through the washing machine, needless to say it didnt survive. The replacement came with 2.1 preinstalled! So pulling in the 8% reported this morning, still doesnt earn it an eye of its very own.

    I thought about trying to get into the beta that was offered yesterday as she is a licensed driving teen, but I dont have the interest for tracking her every move.

    Man we must be running out of good news to be talking about a freaky looking eye

  • kellex

    Guessing $299 on 2 year contract with $100 mail in rebate.

  • Tabe

    Man, the different eyes is the first thing I noticed. I just assumed everyone already knew each device had a different one! =/

    I think they should have kept the eye of the Droid and Droid 2 the same though… Keep the same exact eye for every iteration of each line of Droid devices…

  • timarnette

    Do we know how much the Droid X costs???

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

    I love the eyes, but don't really care.
    I use the Mario bootscreen anyways :-P

  • ylexot

    Speaking of little things…did you notice that Droid X is actually Droid^X (superscript X)? Maybe the Droid 2 will be Droid^2 (Droid squared?)
