Is Verizon next with an Android phone? See previous remarks
A report in yesterday's Wall Street Journal cited "people familiar with the matter," who said a new Android Phone from Motorola would be coming to Verizon before the end of the year. The report gathered most of the commonly-known evidence, such as Motorola Co-CEO Sanjay Jha's statements from last year that the company would have Android devices out by the end of 2009, to portray the certainty of this new, unnamed device.
The device that everyone is expecting to hit Verizon is what is currently known as the Motorola "Morrison," a blue and white slider which was first leaked last week in unauthorized spy shots.
Betanews contacted Verizon yesterday, and the company declined to provide any new information, but instead deferred to CEO Lowell McAdam's keynote at the JavaOne conference where he said that a variety of first-time Verizon devices were on the way in the next six months, including an Android handset and the Palm Pre. Motorola had no comment.
