Motorola XOOM “Vendetta” Commercial is Only Missing the Word “DROID”

The full XOOM commercial is now available on Verizon’s YouTube channel and you’ll notice right away that this thing probably had the “DROOOOID” sound bite at the end, but for whatever reason was pulled last minute.  We had heard all along that this would be DROID-branded and this commercial speaks to that and also makes us very sad.  We love our DROID brand and this would have been the perfect addition to the best lineup of Android phones around.  And enough of my complaining; check out the new spot after the break.

    iPadon’t! anDROID Does!

    Yeah I totally agree! That is sad! Because it really is something special when you learn of a new member to the family. It’s just a whole different feeling when you know a phone has Droid something attached to it, because that is what made the Bionic perfect. I honestly wouldn’t be as excited for the Bionic if it wasn’t the Droid Bionic. I guess that’s holding a huge allegiance to the brand that I started off with in the smart phone world, the Droid.

      Totally agreed, what makes the Droid great is not just the phone itself, but something to associate with. It makes the phone less “commodity-like”. Every time I heard about LG’s Optimus line, I want to laugh. I know they want to associate their phone with the greatest Transformer of all times, but they went the cheap route and didn’t actually license it. I would definitely give their dual-core phone a chance to win my heart, if they dare to call it the “Optimus Prime”.

    Yeah, I agree Kellex, all of the marketing and commercials are still along the lines of the “DROID” theme. The Outer Space experince. I mean you might as well put “DROID” or have the “DROOOOID” sound come out of the commercail. You could easily replace the Xoom and put the Bionic or even the OGD in it’s place and it fits right into this commercail.

    The DROID XOOM by Motorola, Droid Xoom, that has a nice roll of the tongue, Ok, everyone say it :P

      But if they had to pay Lucas for the Droid branding, it would be even more expensive. I’m cool with Motorola going with their own thing (basically, just Motorola Android) and not giving any more money to that has-been blowhard.

      • Anonymous

        Interesting, I haven’t heard about Moto/Verison having to give money to
        Lucas films for the Droid name tag. I don’t think Lucas can sue Verizon or
        Moto on that front.
        The word Droid has been around for quit sometime and used for other products
        as well and unless its a name of a company that is orginal like “Nike” for
        example then you will have a fight on your hands. But, the word “Droid” ahhh
        I can’t see that happening in court dawg.

        • http://twitter.com/GoldenCube Toys Samurai

          I don’t know where you get your information, but Lucas’s name is all over the Droid marketing materials. Even the box of the Droid mentioned that it’s used under license.

          • Anonymous

            I stand corrected, I am looking at a OGD box and a D2 box and it’s not
            written all over the box like some neon sign, actully in small print. Thank
            you for the correction :)

          • tjhrulz

            yeah i saw that when i first got my droid and looked it up, they pay a crapton to use it but hey without the OG droid and its massive marketing campaign where would android be today

            Your on point on that :)

          • tjhrulz

            sadly my OG droid was stolen or lost the other day and the battery was pulled out so we can not track it so
            RIP OG droid I will miss you for forever lol

            Oh man sorry to hear that, atleast yuor in prime position to pick up the
            Thunderbolt or one of the new 4g phones coming out. My Droid is starting to
            come apart at the bottom left corner but still flashing ROMS like a champ.
            Maybe you can pick up another OG or like I said get one of the new 4g phones
            :)

          We don’t have too many original names anymore. The shoe company Nike came about in around 1978 but the Nike missile sites started around 1945, then there’s the Greek goddess of victory named Nike. Although I really dont see how words like droid or apple can be copyrighted. I better hurry if I’m gonna get a copyright for Flugelbinder lol. And what about all those cool words that Bush made up?

          • Anonymous

            LMAO Chris how are you Jeep buddy :) Yeah, you better copy right your last
            name as well. Moto might come out with the Nimon Droid phone next lol

          • Chris Nimon

            Well how cool would that be. I’d buy a Droid Nimon. Quad core, 2 Gigs of ram, 4.5 inch screen, hdmi, front camera, Netflix, nuclear battery, pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers, but most importantly, stock Google with unlocked bootloader. ;)

          hate to bust your bubble, but the word Droid is a TM of lucas art. Verizon had to pay Lucas for it. He coin the phrase in the first Star Wars movie. It wasn’t officially a word before that movie. Android yes, Droid no.

          • Anonymous

            Thanks I saw the fine print on both of my Droid phones and someone already
            corrected me. Thanks for the additional background. I need to find a word
            that I can coin and have the rights to it lol :)
