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

    We just got some wild information from a trusted source about Verizon's Android strategy, and let's just say this shakes things up a little bit. Here are the big takeaways:
    • Droid is the brand name being applied to Verizon's Android devices. It isn't a single phone.
    • The Sholes -- the phone we've been calling the Droid so far -- may simply be known as the Droid.
    • HTC's Desire will be coming to market as the "Droid Eris." (Allow us to save you the Wikipedia lookup -- Eris is the Greek goddess of strife.) Interestingly, it's already up on gdgt as such.
    • Droid Eris will be released -- not announced, actually released -- on November 6. In all likelihood, it will not be announced or shown at Verizon's October 28 event -- that will probably just be for the Sholes.
    That's all we've got so far, but it's a heck of a change in plans, isn't it? It's interesting that Verizon will be applying a sub-brand to its Android line -- and a pretty solid sign that Big Red's got a serious commitment to the platform going forward.

    That makes sense i guess. Goes with the whole R2Ds's these arent the droids your looking for gig we have been seeing. I cant wait for the Droid/Sholes. Going to be leaving Sprint and my PRe for it

    Very interesting. Does make a lot of sense to use the Droid moniker for all Android phones on the Verizon network. Plus, it gives them a bit of seperation from the other carriers even though they will be running the same OS.

    I think it's a smart play.
