Motorola Droid HD
It isn’t a guarantee that Motorola‘s (NYSE:MMI) new flagship phone will make it out in time for Christmas, but rumors from sources like Engadget and a countdown clock on the company’s website to a Tuesday announcement suggest that the Motorola Droid HD will come out sooner rather than later. Alternately referred to as the Motorola Spyder, prototype images of the new phone popped up in August, showing a device with a 4.5-inch HD display that is markedly thinner than previous Droid models.
While the Droid name remains synonymous with Google‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android operating system, Motorola’s line has ceded no small amount of market share to competitor HTC. A sexy new high-end phone for the holidays should help the company earn back its audience before becoming a part of the Google empire in 2012.
