Verizon DROID smartphone incoming as ‘DroidLanding’ initiates [Update]

Oh snap, what do we have here? For all you longtime readers and Verizon fans, the extremely popular @DroidLanding Twitter page (official by the way) has been a source for upcoming Verizon DROID smartphones for a long time. Dating back to the DROID X, Motorola DROID 2/3, and much more. The promotional Twitter page has been silent since the original DROID RAZR in November of 2011, and today it has fired up again and has our interest seriously piqued.

Basically this means within the next month or so, a DROID device will be landing on Verizon Wireless followed by a huge promotion, scavenger hunt, or some other exciting and engaging fun by Verizon. The account usually has cryptic tweets about upcoming products, launch pages with all the details (remember the DROID BIONIC) and all types of good content for you DROID fans.

I don't even know what to think. If memory serves me right (which it usually doesn't) this account has always been for DROID devices, but exclusively Motorola DROID smartphones on Verizon. We know the DROID DNA and other HTC devices have worn the name, but the @DroidLanding page is all about Motorola. Right?

Is a Motorola DROID coming soon? Could this be the Moto X phone we've been hearing so much about? We have another idea. Maybe this isn't just Motorola and we can all get excited for the HTC DROID One from Verizon Wireless. We really have no clue. Another guess could be the new 5.9-inch DROID T6 phablet that's been rumored as of late. I really have no clue what to think, but they're confirming that "reactivation protocols have been initiated" and we need to "standby for further instructions."

Update: Verizon and DroidLanding are ready to rock and roll. We should be learning more very soon. They've released a video, and it appears another scavenger hunt to find the next DROID will be taking place. Stay tuned

What do you guys think this is? We'll be waiting...

VIA: @DroidLanding --Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

    The HTC Incredible line of phones were all referred to as “Droids”.

      Yes, I mention that. I mean the DROIDLanding site only used Motorola.

      We know DROID Incredible, DROID DNA and such weren’t Moto.

        Like you said, I am assuming its the Verizon version of the Moto XFON phone, which has been leaked all over lately. It seems like a nice Mid-Level phone, but nothing all that exciting. If it was another phone, usually something would would of popped up by now.. We shall see!

        Ahh or the HTC one?? Thats supposed to be coming to VZW this summer right?. Would make sense being re-branded as the Droid One by HTC

  • Bob

    I may be trying to look too much into this but are there any rumored phones that are coming out with a product code involving “AR50″? Because when it says something about a “50-foot warrior” the “AR” are the only letters in red on the screen.

      AR stands for Augmented Reality.. That’s the game.

    I think it could be the Droid DNA Plus. HTC announced the Butterfly S this morning, so its logical. A 3200 mah battery, BoomSound speakers and the Ultra Pixel camera. If Verizon is smart they’ll leave the removable storage this time. I would pay the ETF fee and pull the trigger.
