1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Not sure of the significance of this but I was just on VerizonWireless.com and usually one of the flash ads at the top is for the Droid. Not anymore. I would have thought that this would remain a flagship device at least until the N1 hit Verizon if not even longer.

    I wouldn't think that not having it on the homepage no longer makes it a flagship device. Is there a better featured Android device currently on Verizon?

    Sigh....this is how bad rumors get started. I don't think it means anything, I think they changed their home page. They do this frequently.

    Wasn't starting a rumor which is why I started with "I'm not sure of the significance of this" I come to this forum to get information not put down because I noticed something that I didn't understand and brought it here to see other peoples opinions if there were any significance to it or not.

    The marketing dollars spent on ads/billboards/commercials is what brings them new customers. Not front page visibility.

    They need to get OTHER product some visibility since the ads/billboards/commercials cover their flagship.

    You'll notice as well all the ads on the net dedicated to the Droid. People click through to find the Droid not a Blackberry or LG etc etc.....

    Don't know about others, but using Firefox on my desktop system I frequently wait and wait and wait and wait for the VZW website to link to another web page. A click has now been "loading" for five minutes.

    If I chose my phone on the basis of the competence and usability of the carrier's website, I certainly wouldn't be a Verizon customer.

    +1 to this.

    And this is (to repeat what someone already said) exactly what we mean when people start rumors and also get people in a tizzy over nothing.

    You didn't mean to start a rumor, but this is exactly what gets the ball rolling in that direction. And my response was in no way meant to put you down, I'm expressing what I think is going to happen as a result of the post.

    Good Lord! I hope this doesn't mean the Droid is being discontinued! When clicking on cellpones>smartphones - Droid is all the way down second from last on their list. Sigh.. Guess I'm gonna have to check out Apple... :icon_ lala:

    Just kidding! :) Droid Rules! I'm assuming VZW deleted it because as soon as people went to website they saw the Droid, and immediately sought info on that phone, disregarding ALL ELSE on the VZW website... Kind of like last nights headline news story - "Ex President Bill Clinton has tooth pulled" (or was it a stent installed - whatever) ;) Nobody noticed anything else - all the news channels concentrated on this minor event (even showing pictures of stents) and all other news was ignored. Once that blows over - then the populace will begin reading other news... So VZW had to make this move in order to start selling the rest of their lineup.. :)

    Maybe. :banplease: mikey

    I'm guessing they don't have to advertise the Droid that much anymore on their site since it is all over the web and TV spots. They can try to sell some other phones as well with advertisements on their site.

    I agree wholeheartedly. You don't fan smoke unless there is a (supposed) fire. The Droid isn't the only phone Verizon sells you know.

    VZW and Moto just did a Superbowl ad for the Devour. Devices these companies "push" change frequently. It means nothing that the Droid isn't front page.
