Droid X and Droid 2 Already Getting Projected ‘End of Life’ Dates
 

 
Quick! Panic! You’ve only had your brand new Droid X or Droid 2 for a matter of weeks! Verizon can’t seriously already be thinking about phasing them out, can they? Well, yes and no. The good news is that the date pegged for a potential ‘end of life’ for the two new Motorola handsets is March 31st, 2011. That is eight months away. The bad news is that is eight months away, a full 16 months before the contract on your new Android smartphone most likely expires.

my only guess is that the reason they are coming out with end of life dates is because of the rumored iPhone for Verizon. no one knows if it is really coming out for Verizon but I mean it would make sense. I think its dirty that Verizon is even entertaining Apple excepting the fact how good Motorola has been to Verizon but we will see. I personally as an iPhone user hope that the iPhone doesn't make it to the Verizon network. call it hate but it is what it is...

But then why would verizon would want to return to a network that rejected them in the 1st place when verizon was offered the iphone 1st??? Not only that, think about the system that verizon uses. They use CDMA which is an outdated technology that barely people around the world use. GSM is 90% global and more advanced to use from anywhere around the world.

So in order for a verizon iphone to come out, Apple will have to remake a brand new iphone with CDMA frequencies in it. And I don't think Jobs will even think about doing that. Verizon lost in that situation battle if you ask me.

Sounds stupid

Seeing how the old fart G1 lasted from Oct 08 to March 10 with the updates there's no reason for a carrier to drop support on a "super droid" so fast

it maybe more used around the world but verizon is pushing out 4G/LTE next year while AT&T hasnt annouced anything.

Droid Pro is the global Droid 2: the evidence grows

We'd reported before our belief that the rumored Droid Pro is nothing more than the dual-mode version of the Droid 2, but the question remained: knowing that the Droid 2 has a model code of A955, what the heck is the difference between the model codes A956 and A957 that have been showing up in Verizon's systems? Looks like we might have some clarification on that question this afternoon thanks to a new shot clearly calling out the A957 as the R2-D2 version of the Droid 2 that's launching late next month. What does that mean? Well, it means that if the Droid Pro is a separate product with insane specs, it hasn't shown up in any screen shots and we don't have a model code for it. Our original tipster was pretty insistent that Verizon didn't have any product on its 2010 phone roadmap with crazier specs than the Droid X -- and besting it inside of six months would seem like an awful business move anyway -- so now, the only question seems to be whether Big Red will go with the "Droid 2 World Edition" or "Droid Pro" branding when this thing launches in the coming weeks.

so Droid 2 ISNT getting replaced its getting a rebranding name..... just like i thought i bet its the same as the Droid X
