Our good friends at Gadget U have raised a good point that could all get washed away in the wording. First off back at the end of February, Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha said that both Gingerbread and WebTop would be part of all Motorola’s high end Android phones. We also know that Verizon Wireless only uses the “Droid” branding on what they think are their high end phones.
The Motorola Droid 3 is the third in the trilogy of original Droids on Verizon Wireless, starting with the original Motorola Droid, then the Droid 2 and now the Droid 3. Despite not having 4G/LTE aren’t we to believe that the Motorola Droid 3 is in fact a high end Android phone? Or did somewhere along the way the designation “Droid” change it’s meaning.
More after the break
The recently released Motorola Photon 4G on Sprint has the webtop built in however the lapdock is absent on the Sprint accessory page. In fact at the press event held in New York in June to announced the Motorola Photon 4G, there was no mention of the lapdock webtop accessory.
Matt Gissentana over at Gadget U also points out that in the comparison chart listed above there is nothing listed in the Droid 3’s webtop column, not no, but nothing. Anyone who listened in on Motorola’s most recent earnings call knows that they are juggling around and trying to get their footing back. One of the big differentiators between Motorola Android phones and others is of course the webtop functionality.
So what’s the deal moto?
