With the release of the HTC Droid Incredible on Verizon, you would think that demand for the flagship Motorola Droid would decline, but today Moto’s Sanjay Jha revealed that they too are suffering from manufacturing shortages due to high demand. While no information was discerned about the components that may be causing the shortages, Jha offered, “If I could build more, I’d sell more.” I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that Verizon has been offering the phone as a buy-one-get-one-free deal and that Cellular South is launching the device shortly under the Motorola Milestone name.
In the same Executive Club presentation in Chicago, Jha mentioned that Motorola would be releasing two to four phones with front facing cameras this year even though he isn’t a strong believer in the demand for video conferencing. One of these we know to be the Droid Xtreme, after spying the front facing camera in leaked shots.
If there was any question as to whether Motorola was waning in Android relevancy Jha wants us to know that simply isn’t the case.
