According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Motorola and Verizon have signed off on an agreement which would see the nation’s largest carrier heavily showcase its upcoming line-up of Android smartphones. Going further, the WSJ alleges that July will see Motorola launch two new Android smartphones in conjunction with Big Red. Clearly one of the devices is going to be the Shadow, but the other is still quite the mystery. One major hurdle that Motorola faces when trying to make a name for itself as an Android powerhouse is that it does not control the rights to the Droid brand. Owned by Lucasfilm and under license to Verizon, the WSJ contends that Motorola is finding it very difficult to capitalize on the popularity of the Droid name as others such as HTC have also used the name. Regardless, the onus is on Motorola to again make a splash with yet another incredibly popular handset just as it did with the first Droid.
