Best Buy mum on DROID 2 Global, Pro removal; Verizon not involved

Earlier this morning, we told you that retail giant Best Buy began pulling Motorola’s DROID 2 Global and DROID Pro from store shelves. Although the cause was initially rumored to be a handset pricing dispute between the two companies, that simply is not the case. In an email to BGR, a Verizon Wireless spokesperson noted that the company has not mandated or otherwise requested Best Buy to remove the devices from its shelves. The spokesperson went on to emphasize that there is not any kind of recall (hardware, software, or otherwise) that would explain such an action. To hammer that point home, Verizon’s official Twitter account let this 140-character cherub loose this afternoon:

DROID 2 Glob and DROID Pro are great phones. Stop by your Verizon Wireless store and try ‘em out! #droid

Best Buy has yet to respond to BGR’s request for comment. For the time being, Best Buy is playing this one pretty close to the vest.
