    Earlier in the week we were excited to share a new Droid Landing with you guys, here. Unfortunately, it turned out that it is not a new Droid device, but is instead just a new game in the Google Play Store. The news isn't completely disappointing, as the game looks fairly intriguing. Here's a description taken from the Play Store,

    While we would have been understandably more excited by a new Droid smartphone, perhaps this game can whittle away some time until the next Droid Landing really is a new device...

    I really thought the Droid marketing was going to fizzle out. Droid DNA didnt really seem to be a stunning as the Bionic campaign. With the disaster of Droid 3 and Droid 4 still on life support its interesting to see where Verizon goes with it. Honestly the last real Droid to me was the Bionic.

    The Bionic was such a bust. The original RAZR actually had some good sales from their marketing. Motorola really dropped the ball on the second generation models.

    It was a great campaign to launch Android. But I think as mfrs have realized the folly of multiple variants of multiple devices, VZW struggles to get exclusivity with high-end devices. Why pay a premium for exclusivity when it doesn't generate any ROI for VZW? Remember, we're now pretty deep into the mass market, and those are typically more value-oriented consumers.

    At this point, time to pull the plug on the Droid brand. I don't know if VZW or Moto is to blame, but it's lost any real brand recognition/mass appeal. VZW could have cashed-in by keeping it a strong brand such that mfrs would WANT to be a Droid exclusive, but then VZW started slapping the Droid brand on like half their phones and diluted the value of the brand.
