    Here's something we haven't seen for quite some time... a new Droid Landing! That's right, a new Droid should be punching through Earth's atmosphere and arriving to dominate our Verizon and retail stores very soon. The last time we were notified of a Droid Landing was back in November of last year! For now it is just a teaser so we don't know any details for sure.

    What new Droid do you think we will see? Could it be an HTC Droid One perhaps? We will let you know as soon as more details emerge!

    Update: As wicked shared in the thread, more details are starting to filter out about whatever Verizon is doing with Droids. They released a new tweet, and they also released a video of an Augmented Reality Scavenger hunt game for whatever this new Droid Landing is. Here's the video:

    i m almost expect the motorola x to be the landing device. It seems just like verizon to push an underpowered motorola device with a droid name. Droid just do not mean what it used to mean. Droid use to mean the grand daddy android device to have...now it just mean cheap phone meant to get those not wanting to spend a lot of money for a phone off their calling plan only into a smartphone family share plan.

    My heart skipped a beat when I saw this. My hopes and dreams for a Droid 5 looked like they might be true. I'm still skeptical though.

    Ill take a google experienced droid 5 if it had at least a 5 inch screen, a removable 2800 mah battery (I would prefer 3000), 720 p min but prefer 1080p resolution, 8-10 mp camera, with 4.2.2 out of the box.

    I'd take a Droid 5 no matter what. I've been so desperate to see the QWERTY market give it one more shot. Make a Droid 5 Verizon, and make it damn good. Don't skip out on specs, don't skip out on advertising, there is still a desire for these devices!

    Eventhough the X FON is coming, which is slightly beefed up version of what Droid Razr HD is (considering the specs.) I remember in the D11 discussion that Motorola is launching a number of new devices, so eventhough the X FON or XT1060 is going to kick it off for Verizon, on a low range budget multi-carrier phone. I think Motorola still has it planned to continue the development on the Droid and that is the phone I'm going to be interested in. There still is nothing confirmed of a Nexus 5, also even with the Google support on the GS4, HTC One, and Xperia Z lines. My thought is the next Droid could very well kick off Key Lime Pie, or better yet while imagining here a Motorola Droid Razr Nexus 5. -it's possible...

    edit: I think the "Game Changer" reference in the Motorola X, is not the specs, but the fact that it is the ONLY "Made in the USA" phone on the market.

    unless they using the game to make a scavenger hunt for a new device...that would be unique.
