Yep but I bet HTC is doing everything they can to abide by Verizon's desires because they have the network for their devices to proliferate. Even though MotoDroid was leaked, it was probably the tightest closest to release date info so far and the leaks would have not been detrimental to moto or Verizon whereas a leak of a MotoDroid/iPhone killer HTC android device would be very detrimental to Moto. Not as detrimental to Verizon, but Moto is on it's last legs and if verizon allowed them to be crushed then HTC would be the monopolistic Android handset maker which would be detrimental to Verizon.
