Verizon likes to be a bit of a tease when it comes to upcoming DROID devices. They tend to take to their DROIDLanding Twitter account to start hyping new releases, dropping cryptic messages and obscure clues about what their next move may end up being. This time, the account posted the following message:
The link takes us to a video, which is an extended version of the short DROID Ultra and MAXX teaser clips we’ve been seeing since those phones launched. This particular video puts emphasis on a “package” that a guy has been tasked with picking up and protecting… a package that looks like it could be holding a tablet of some sort.
One Twitter user did tell Verizon their DROIDTheory:
@DroidLanding he’s going to find the package an ld inside its going to be a tablet . A droid tablet :) cant wait to see it

As you can see, the DroidLanding Twitter account ended up retweeting that particular response. We’re not sure that necessarily means anything, but it could be affirmation that we are set to see a tablet soon.
It would have to be from Motorola, as the company has recently been confirmed to be the exclusive manufacturer for Verizon’s DROID line of devices. We have heard rumors that Motorola would be looking to jump back into the tablet space after a brief period of silence.
Words from Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside suggested they’d probably look to create a tablet that can be customized with the Moto Maker, the company’s tool that currently allows you to order a Moto X in any combination of colors you wish (with custom etching and bootup greetings, as well). We’re not so sure a DROID tablet would get Moto Maker treatment this early ahead of more carriers (sans AT&T) getting Moto X customization, but it’s something to think about.
Be sure to watch the video for yourself above, and let us know what your thoughts are. Will Verizon be bringing us a new DROID tablet soon or is this something entirely different? Make your voice heard in the comments section below!
