Portland, Oregon ( — In response to the incredible demand for smartphones, Verizon Wireless is slated to release their newest in android technology with the Droid.

The new iPhone competition will have a price tag of $200 and will answer customer’s need for a cellular phone that does more than make phone calls.

The Droid may help the telecommunications giant to hold on to its status of the largest wireless carrier in the U.S. and could help its manufacturer, Motorola Inc., to reestablish itself in the market after its dwindling sales following the popular Razr phone in 2005.

According to the Associated Press, “The new device also could give a boost to Google Inc., which used the Droid to unveil new mapping software that could challenge standalone navigational devices, sending GPS gadget maker Garmin Ltd.’s stock plunging after Wednesday’s announcement.”

John Stratton, Verizon’s chief marketing officer, said that his company hopes the Droid will be the gadget that enables Verizon and Motorola in breaking any preconceived notion that the iPhone is the ultimate smartphone mobile device. - Press Release Distribution Service
