The Android Market started as a competitive edge to equal the iphone. Motorola probably has some kind of deal with VZW right now. Plus, wouldn't you make higher end products for a company that doesn't sell what you're competing against?

Now that APPLE is in talks with VZW, and eventually T-Mobile and Sprint, it won't be about if AT&T gets more higher end Droids (like the Captivate) ... it will be Droid vs Apple. Droid sales might fall when this takes place. If I were Motorola I would probably be making higher end devices for VZW just to say, "Hey buddy, remember us? We still love you."

Not to mention, Apple has a set of rules that put AT&T retailers through the ringer. I wouldn't doubt it if AT&T starts getting higher end Droids after the whole WP7 phase blows over this holiday season. In my opinion Samsung will be to AT&T as Motorola is to VZW when it comes to Android phones.

That's my two cents.
