DROID DOES Pretty Damn Well

droid_eyeThe proliferation of new handsets running Google’s (GOOG) Android OS hasn’t had much impact on sales of Motorola’s Droid. According to company Co-CEO Sanjay Jha, demand for the smartphone has been steady and a bit overwhelming. So much so that Droid supplies are a bit constrained.

“(Droid) sales are going extremely well,” Jha said today. “If I could build more I’d sell more.” Evidently, Motorola (MOT) is facing the same component shortages these days that delayed HTC’s Droid Incredible.

One other point worth noting here in the aftermath of Apple’s iPhone 4 and FaceTime video-calling announcements earlier this week: Jha said Motorola plans to launch two to four smartphones that support mobile videoconferencing before the end of the year, though he has “never been a great believer” in the feature.

Wonder if the new devices will support Apple’s (AAPL) FaceTime standard.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
