What a great way to combat the iphone release. Verizon, are you listening?
Would be nice, but I am not holding my breath.
I 2nd that statement......... if we get it before Fall we will be doing good.....
Don't care, already running it.
I've yet to wait for an OTA update.
+1. Also, why would the release of a new phone on another network coincide with a software update for a COMPLETELY different phone on a COMPLETELY different network?
I think it would help. Add some hype to the droid with flash and all.
I bet they will hammer out 2.2 right about the same time as the iRelease, lol.
THEN, once it's out for a month, they will start hyping 2.3 to keep a step ahead.
Strategic marketing - there's an app for that
Wow... talk about a total lack of common sense. Don't ever get a job in business if you want to be successful.
Competing release dates have a massive impact on marketing efforts.
The iPhone Is Sunk, End Of Story.
Common sense to me says that a release of a whole phone on one carrier does not necessarily mean another carrier will release a software update for another totally different phone/platform just to keep up. That's all I'm saying. No need to insult.

In marketing, your all about selling products... what gimmick or product you can provide for the consumers. Its about swaying customers, especially new ones to joining the verizon network rather than att or vise versa as an example
Basically it's all about lying.
Your logic is flawed in a couple of ways.
1. An OTA software update is for current, captive (already under contract) customers. Nobody is going to pay the ETF to get out of their contract if they have to wait another week for an incremental software update.
2. VZW has been giving Droids away recently. As pointed out in several threads, third party sellers have already sold out of their supply and are not being replenished. They will not have any Droids until the Droid2 comes out. Again, there's no incentive to push out a software update for an "end-of-life" product. Ask BlackBerry Storm owners how long they have been waiting for a software update from Verizon.
I'm not in sales, I'm in product development.
so you are saying that the droid is at EOL already
I doubt it; I don't see the Droid as a competitor to the iPhone 4. The EVO maybe, but I would say that the next standard for all phones will be front-facing cameras. I really hope that whatever follow-up comes out for the Droid will have one, or it's going to look out-of-date, Snapdragon or not.
Wait until you start getting data from accidents happening because someone was using video conferencing on their phones
And yes, I know, it only works on wifi, but if they use a mifi or an Android with tether, it can be possible
That's what I said. When they stop producing a product and start with its replacement, that's what I could consider end of life. That said, I just got mine a week and a half ago and I love it. It's not the top-of-the-line, best-thing-out-there anymore but it's still a great phone with a fantastic userbase. I only hope that the Shadow eventually receives close to the following that the Droid currently has.
