Motorola might be on the road to recovery with their new handset. The Motorola Droid which is the company’s first Google Android device and an Apple iPhone Competitor.
The device had tremendous hype even before its release starting with rumours, leaked pictures etc. Now a week has passed since it’s release and sources say that Motorola might have sold as many as 100,000 Motorola Droid phones over the weekend.
Motorola is providing the Droid t customers through the Verizon Wireless network. The sales isnt anywhere close to the 1 million sales the Apple iPhone had in it’s opening weekend. But it is a very good figure for Motorola as it’s been sometime since the company has had a successful product.
The Motorola Droid costs $199.99 with a two-year agreement after a $100 mail-in rebate whereas Apple’s basic iPhone costs $99 with AT&T, while its newer 3GS model costs $199.
Motorola expect a rise in sales and even to hit the 1 million mark very soon.
