While Motorola has built smartphones for other carriers, their relationship with Verizon has been pretty good and together both companies have released a series of Droid devices. Now it looks like that relationship will be taken to the next level as Verizon has confirmed that they have entered into an exclusive partnership with Motorola where the company will be 100% responsible for creating Droid devices for the carrier. This was confirmed by Verizon’s marketing executive, Jeff Dietel, who spoke to the folks at CNET.
This follows the launch of several Droid devices like the Droid Ultra, Droid Mini, and Droid Maxx. Dietel claims that the Droid Ultra lineup will remain Verizon’s flagship smartphone for a while, and that Verizon promised the handset will be given a longer shelf life compared to previous flagship smartphones in the past. Rick Osterloh, head of product management for Motorola, was also quoted as saying, “There are millions of users that are happy with it and loyal to the Droid brand […] Droid is a formula that works very well.”
