Motorola and Google are teaming up to produce a new phone, which they hope will put a considerable dent in the market share of the iPhone. The ads for the Droid have made it pretty clear who they are targeting as a main competitor (see below). The phone will be made available this week, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are playing a special show to promote it.
The concert will take place on the Lower East Side in Manhattan, at an as-yet undisclosed location. Anyone who purchases a Droid on November 6 will apparently win tickets for the event, and followers of this Verizon Twitter feed will also be able to find out how to gain entry.
Here’s the official press release for the event:
You can be one of the first to experience the brand new Droid by Motorola – the world’s first smartphone with Android 2.0 – available exclusively on the Verizon Wireless network. Follow Verizon Wireless’ New York Street Teams at Twitter.com/vcastmusic to find out where they will be so you can be one of the first to try the Droid out for yourself and win tickets to attend an exclusive celebration in Manhattan’s Lower East Side featuring a performance by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and mingle with celebrity guests including Adrian Grenier, Kim Delaney, Katrina Bowden and more.
Anyone who purchases a Droid on November 6 will also win tickets to attend the event.
