    I might be wrong but unless Google releases another phone (NexusOne) in the near future it looks fairly unlikely that there is going to be a phone with the stock android coming out this year? This is my run down:

    HTC all in with Sense.
    Motorola all in with Blur (Moto-Shadow).
    Samsung and well, I wouldn't touch their touchwiz-laced phones with a 10ft pole. You bada be kidding me!
    Sony has Rachael I believe.
    LG has the Ally but even that has some of their own home brew stuff on it - and I could see them doing their own thing with Android as well.
    Acer may be producing their own blend of Android from the looks over the Acer Liquid Stream.
    Dell has a couple of phones in the pipeline but I believe they'll have their own blend of Android.
    Lenovo has LePhone - but its not stock I believe.
    Google has the NexusOne but will they be releasing another Superphone until next year?

    I know that people can turn off these 'skins' in some cases and even root their phones to load whatever custom rom they want... but I was hoping that with all the 'variety' there would still be room for phones to come with stock android. I currently own the Moto Droid, and I like the fact that it doesn't have Blur on it. I was sad to hear the NexusOne wouldn't be available to Verizon, as it was the only other stock Android 'super-phone' available. The obvious advantage would be quicker updates when the next version of Android is released (in 3 months). What is your take? Am I missing a manufacturer?

    Maybe some cheap Chinese companies. Defin won't work on Verizon.

    I hope Droid 2 does not have Blur on it. I plan on getting a Gingerbread phone next year and I know that will be high on my list if it does not.

    I know Shadow does but no word on Droid II.

    Me too but I'd be surprised if any phone that Motorola puts out doesn't have Blur on it at this point. Hopefully the Droid 2 will stick to stock android, no matter who manufacturers/produces it. Though, if HTC makes a great slider qwerty phone I might have to jump ship to sense!
