Original DROID Removed from Verizon Website, DROID 2 Hints All Over

You can still view the Droid 1 by hitting up droidoes.com, but after clicking on the “Buy Now” button you’ll be directed to a dead page meaning the D1 is officially gone.  Also, if you attempt to simply pull up the listing in VZW’s smartphone section for the original beast, you are going to come up empty as you can see from the screenshot above.  So where is the Droid 2 then?

We’re guessing it’ll be popping onto the site within a couple of hours.  There have already been D2 sightings, hints and leaks on Big Red’s site including the 360 degree viewer we showed you yesterday plus this accessory page…

We received a tip that the Droid 2 page was even available around midnight last night in place of the D1 page, but appears to have been taken down already.  The phone ID could be 5429, if that gives you a snooping start.

Let us know if you find anything else!

Cheers Brandon!

    The D1 is still available on my Verizon phone page too… Muncie, Indiana – $149.99 after discount. And on a side note, the DX is on the Costco web site, and says available online and in the warehouses, whereas the Verizon site now has a “shipped by 8/26” stamp on the X…

    Droid X and the HTC Incredible just dropped in price in the Verizon site to $149.99.

    Kellex, I know the Droid OG is going the way of 8 track tape players, BetaMax vcrs, and the Sony Walkman, but could you quit putting nails in it's coffin? Every post you put up like this makes me feel like I am watching Jordan play for the Wizards, except that the Droid is '96 Mike and is still lighting up the league.

  • Verizon website does NOT have Droid 1 (Danbury, Connecticut).

  • i love my droid… im attached, and its gonna be tough when it goes to droid heaven… upgrade or not.

    • I just hope mine lasts until an upgrade so I can retire it in working condition. Maybe take it out for a spin now and then, use for a little development, walk in the parks, etc

      Who thinks you'll be able to sell D1 for a high price if they don't get the bootloader unlocked on the newer android phones?

      • WhereIsTony

        Doubt it, Roms while cool are not that mainstream and people will likely lean Toward the Incredible for the specs.
