DROID 2 Recalled from Walmart, DROID 2 Global Expected Any Day?

Over the weekend, Walmart received a recall for their remaining Droid 2 devices leaving us to believe that the Droid 2 Global should be arriving any day now.  As you can see from the shot above, there is a missing device now in this specific store’s display which used to be occupied by the D2.  We also have a picture below from one of their inventory guns which clearly shows that the D2 has been deleted from their system.

The recall was “nondescript” and provided zero details aside from the fact that Brightstar, Walmart’s distributor, wants them all back by Tuesday, October 26th.  Does this mean the D2 Global will drop that same week?  Possibly, but we’re expecting it to launch at the same time as the Droid Pro, meaning keep an eye on that front as the D2G is still un-announced.

Thoughts?

    It seems it was outdated by Moto themselves before it was even released. What a waste of resources. Why not just keep the D1 on the market for another month.

    The price tag on display said $200. When the lady rang me up, she asked me “What does the pricetag say?”. After checking, she said the system had it for $150. I got it for $150 if anyone is interested in picking one up.

    You want to get a new D2 because you want QWERTY and they will just give you a D2G. I would imagine that it will cost a little bit more, but remember the target customer is business/executive folks.

    Walmart s received recalled their remaining Droid 2 device, leaving us to believe that Global Droid 2 should arrive any day now….oookkkk.

  • Gatehouseacademyreview

    Came to knew , Droid 2 devices missing…hopefully will be launched soon.All are expecting it to launch at the same time as the Droid Pro.Advertisement plays an important role in launching and promoting.

    They are on commission, do you think they want to talk about a device thats not released yet, aka knowing you’re wasting their time. Just a thought.

    I picked up a Droid X this past Saturday from Wal-Mart with my 2 year upgrade. The price tag on display said $200. When the lady rang me up, she asked me “What does the pricetag say?”. After checking, she said the system had it for $150. I got it for $150 if anyone is interested in picking one up.

    Droid-Life has it's own cellphone kiosks at Walmart? I still don't see why VZW didn't learn from their mistakes with the D2

  • balthuszar

    both the walmarts here in my city still have the Droid 2 on their connection center display

  • Rain_king46

    My question is why did Moto even make the D2? It seems it was outdated by Moto themselves before it was even released. What a waste of resources. Why not just keep the D1 on the market for another month, and push the Droid X until the Global was ready?

  • The350zWolf

    It kind of make sense to me, no advertisement really needed, after all the D2 Global is still a D2. So you walk to get a new D2 because you want QWERTY and they will just give you a D2G. I would imagine that it will cost a little bit more, but remember the target customer is business/executive folks

    • The350zWolf

      Although I would doubt that exec's would buy their phones at WallMart

  • Walmart Wireless employee

    here's a question…. the tipster in question, did they actually see a recall letter about the D2? I have to ask since I've worked in Wally World's Connection Center/ Walmart Wireless for 4 years, and this tactic of marking it as Deleted is an attempt to block stores from ordering more product, and letting the computer send more to you as you sell down. If they actually had a physical email in they're hands, or a big-ass RECALL where you see the Deleted/Cref, then I would belive it. Until then, don't put too much stock in it being recalled as of yet.

    • Ninja Skilz

      I agree. I worked there a while back and if I remember correctly, all cell phones show deleted/cref on perpetual inventory. That only means they are replenished automatically. You can't order those any way. You get what they send you.

    I don't think it has anything to do with vzw. Why would vzw start a high dollar TV ad(guardian angel) to just yank the phone a week later?

    • WAldenIV

      That ad is for the Android marketplace, specifically for Lookout.

      • Mth2134

        At the end it says on the screen Droid 2 and Droid X. And if vzw were simply pimping the marketplace, I doubt they would include a almost discontinued phone. Why not just use the x then?

  • http://twitter.com/Pollita_Droid Erica Marchand

    Wow I know the Droid 2 wasn't all that, and I believe it still cant compare to the orginal droid but wow they ditched it hella fast~

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

      how can't it compare to the og droid?

  • EC8CH

    WOW! Droid-Life has it's own cellphone kiosks at Walmart?

    Highly upsetting :(

    In other news; Kellex, plz stop creeping around Wal-Mart snapping pictures…it really makes us look creepy…Thanks :)

      Guessing that they put all their money into the DX launch.

      Hah, not me in Walmart. Lovely tipster. :)

    • Rskolin

      That's true, even for Verizon sales reps. I've been in two different stores in the last three days and know more about the new upcoming devices than they do.

      • Notimportant

        They know more. A lot more. They are on commission, do you think they want to talk about a device thats not released yet, aka knowing you're wasting their time. Just a thought. They Just act as dumb as possible to avoid people that won't shutup and buy the damn thing. :)

        -VZW rep, out.

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