Verizon iPhone 4: Game Over for Droid Phones?

What are your thoughts on the inevitable release of the iPhone on Verizon Wireless? We still might be a year away from a release, but we have an article for you to read now, which suggests that a release could spell the end for Verizon’s Droid-branded smartphones.

This report from Beatweek, suggests that Verizon are fighting a losing battle with their Droid phones after investing a lot of money into them, and believes that only an iPhone release on Big Red will turn their fortunes around.

They quote a recent CNN study that 4 out of 5 Android users have no plans to buy another Android handset after their current one, which would be ‘game over’ according to them.

However, I can’t really see this happening. The Motorola Droid X has been a huge success for Verizon, and I’m pretty sure the Droid 2 will exceed sales expectations as well. I don’t think that the introduction of the iPhone on Verizon will spell the end for Verizon’s Droid brand.

Thanks to handsets like the Droid, Droid Incredible and Droid X, Verizon has now built up a strong following and I can definitely see a shared divide between Droid owners and iPhone owners on Verizon.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think that it is ‘game over’ for Droid phones once the iPhone is available on Verizon?
