Original DROID Makes Pink Appearance in New Duracell Commercial

Duracell has a new product on the market called the MyGrid and in their latest commercial, they feature a variety of phones charging on it, but most notably is the pink, yes pink Motorola Droid.  It looks like Duracell had enough money to fork out for the Blackberry name, but not our family member’s.  Anyone want a pink Droid?

Jump to the 15 second mark.  

Cheers Joe!

    If you check out the MyGrid on Duracell's site, I think they fixed..whatever that was, and includes a familiar black Droid / Milestone on the MyGrid.

    Hey, not all droid users are guys. I have an X (had a droid prior to this) , my daughter has an incredible. Mine is outfitted in all kinds of pink and purple (cases & themes ) and my daughters is covered in bling ! Doesn't make us any less of a droid user than you men (and I'm sure a few boys here to ). You can find alot more at “women with droids ” site. And by the way, our phones are rooted.

    hey thanks guys for posting this after i emailed you guys about it…thought it was pretty cool :-)

    If you go to the mygrid site and look at the pics there, the droid is black, and the Verizon logo is easy enough to make out on one of the pics. I just wish they would integrate the tech with the batteries themselves. I know it's possible. I *KNOW* it would be more costly both for consumer and duracell/whomever, but it would be soooooo much nicer, then I don't have to worry about dongles.

    So, what do the phones need to work with this? I kind of want one if this would charge all of my gadgets.

  • Whosoutthere

    That's actually a pretty awesome Droid…on their website (Duracell) twenty minutes later the Droid is black again.

    Now if only I could find a worthwhile emergency power solution…

    “It looks like Duracell had enough money to fork out for the Blackberry name, but not our family member’s.”

    Where'd you get that from?

    • Itester8

      They zoom in on the blackberry name but not Droid.

    • Scoderp

      the small legal text uses Motorola's name.

    Two thing to point out
    Droid Pink come on!!!!!!! why would someone use a pink droid….. if u wanna fashion and queen device go for a i*hone
    That droid launches the clock dock… interestng
    And that clock is the 2.1 clock men someone please update that droid
    And did anyone notice the orientation of that clock 270 degress…. some one enlight me but I think the og non rooted 2.1 doesn't have 270 right?

    • Mannyeng

      Too much analyzing for a commercial! It is a TV ad!!!
      Most of time (if not all the time) TV ads render the screen of the cells phone (cellphone ads even say in small letters that the screen on the device is simulated). That's why you are founding stuff that is not there.

    Maybe its pink because it embarrassed to be seen with so many other crappy phones

    So you have to put this ridiculous looking clip on the back of your phone in order for it to work?

    Either you walk around all day with this on the back of your phone or you have to plug it in every time you want to charge it. No thanks, I'll stick with my dock.

      o_O …im not sure you understand the concept lol

        thank you!

      • Tm2

        Im not sure you understand the concept Chrisss

    • Mannyeng

      I agree.
      Even that this is not new (this is basically a powermat re branded) it will never be successful until it starts to come built-in on the new phones. It would be great if they could push a universal charger for all the devices.
      It has great potential if the cellphones one day start coming ready for that technology. They can even built-in the mat inside furniture, so you just lay your phone at your night stand or office desk and it's charging! But before that, I refuse to use a clip or a sleeve hanging from my phone.

    • Gadgetskopf

      A local RatShak let me play with one of these for a little bit. Not only do you have to attach the dongle, but you have to be very particular about where you attach it on the back of the phone (or case…fit just fine with my Innocase Surface in place), or it will activate the car or home dock screen. Never mind having to unplug it if you need to connect to the computer via USB for something.

    That would be perfect for Jrummy's Pink-life theme

    What was the point of making the Droid pink? Like… I really want to know.

    • Kaufkin

      probably a Nod to breast Cancer. if not from Duracel, from the props guy.

  • Mr. Joshua

    That looked like it popped up the home dock too….

  • Nemesis099

    My Mom has a droid with a case that color and mife has her droid 2 in a case that color.

    They both said it helps them find the phone when it is in their purse.
