Finishing out last week it seemed that Verizon was poised to have an excellent roll out of their new Android Superphone the Droid X by Motorola. Being that they were releasing the Droid X amongst major delays with their previous Android Superphone, the HTC Droid Incredible, Verizon Spokesperson Brenda Raney reassured the blogsphere and Android/Wireless media that “While we are currently experiencing delays on orders of [the HTC Droid Incredible]. We view that as an anomaly driven by a combination of supply and popularity. At present, we feel that we have done everything possible to ensure we have inventory to meet customer needs around the Droid X”
Product quantity levels looked great Thursday night while attending a midnight madness sale at the Columbia Maryland Verizon Store. With 110 numbers given out it appeared that everyone that received a number in the line received a Droid X device. We were expecting a sell out by lunch time and in most stores we saw that, however Friday in store stock levels at most stores were replenished. Apparently that wasn’t enough to last the weekend or maintain stock levels for their online ordering which fulfillment has been pushed back to August 3, 2010.
In an email inquiry response to Thedroidguy Brenda Raney confirmed that the HTC Incredible and the Motorola Droid X are sold out for different reasons. In regards to the Motorola Droid X Raney went on to say “we typically order phones in phases so we have essentially sold out of the first phase of our shipment. We have weekly shipments scheduled so customers can continue to order their phones and we will send the phone directly to their homes”
While the blogsphere is rambling about the Droid X being sold out in the same fashion as the HTC Incredible, need we remind you that AT&T; stores won’t see replenishment of the Iphone 4 anytime soon, and are also encouraging direct order fulfillments by ordering at the store and having the phone shipped to your home. The temporary shortage of the Motorola Droid X is due to nothing but it’s popularity amongst Android Enthusiasts and Verizon customers alike.
