Motorola’s Droid Problem

So the new king of the Android hill is the HTC Droid Incredible — Nexus One-caliber hardware with HTC’s proprietary “Sense” UI, coming to Verizon April 29.

It occurred to me today that this shows just how bad a deal this whole Android/Droid thing is for Motorola. Motorola’s only relevant phone is the Droid. But Verizon owns the “Droid” brand, and now just a few months later, Verizon’s new flagship phone in the Droid line is made by HTC, not Motorola.

I don’t know if Motorola can afford it, but they ought to be doing whatever they can to scoop up Palm.
