The Droid was Motorola's last stand. The reason why this product has the quality it does is because Motorola went all in. It took a risk. It wanted to produce a product rivaling anything else currently on the market. Their products had not been doing well and the company was going down...slowly but surely.
Who knows about the future generation of phones. Sometimes a company will get stagnant and content. This Droid was released when Motorola had its back against the wall and the odds were against them. They won. But who knows if Motorola will have that sense of urgency in 2012 when there could be a Droid v2 like phone.
