Droid 2 Global Made Official Via Facebook, Will it Ever Get a Press Announcement?



The Motorola Droid 2 Global has been up on Verizon’s site for a little while now — you can order it right now and have one shipped out your way — but for whatever reason Verizon has neglected to make any sort of announcement of the device via press release. Now on their Facebook page they have maybe given the most official “confirmation” of the device we will probably get in the form of a status update offering the D2G for $199.99 on a two-year contract after mail-in rebate.

The Droid 2 had an odd marketing approach in terms of hyping up the device before its launch, but advertising slowly picked up. We suspect the same will happen with the Droid 2 Global, with the handset more or less piggybacking on the same campaign as the original Droid 2.

  1. I can’t imagine why any company would purposely make a product announcement on Facebook. Or worse yet, use Facebook as a poor substitute for a support forum (are you listening, ALK?)

  2. I agree with unclemike. It should also be noted that there aren’t 220 countries in the world, even if you count small countries who let themselves be represented by others in the UN (Western Sahara, ie) or others with no UN representation (Kosovo, Vatican City, etc.) Others taken over by terrorists or larger countries (Palestine, Taiwan) that some like to pretend don’t exist. Or even countries that are more of a volatile piece of geography than anything (Somalia)… You still don’t end up with 220. I would like to see VZWs list of countries with coverage.

  3. Thanks for the link commentguy. I was wondering where they were coming up with those numbers, now I understand, more than a few aren’t “countries” but territories,different areas of the same country, or in Antarctica’s case, a continent. Advertising incorrectly worded to use more impressive numbers, but good to know nevertheless. To be fair, I suppose it is easier to just say “countries” as opposed to “countries, territories, regions, places in dispute, ‘places in perpetual dispute who change governments more often than most people change their socks so we honestly have no idea what the hell it’s called today’, and Antractica(may I never have to go there again).
