    My guess is one of two things: "Droid" is a registered trademark, so Motorola cannot use it anywhere, or, Motorola was trying to common law trademark it (TM) in the same region as Lucasfilm.

    As for what pre-fan said, he's actually talking about Copyright. Copyright works differently from trademark. And they're both confusing as hell.
    Nah, I actually took some legal courses. What I'm talking about applies to trademarks. Any proof that Motorola is paying Lucas to license the Droid name? (I saw a few "articles" - if you can even be so kind as to call them that - but no background evidence - all I saw looked to be hearsay.) And any background analysis as to the reasoning? Was it already an issue, or did Motorola make the move pre-emptively? There are a lot of ways the situation may have played out. M may have taken the action in anticipation of legal issues - even if there would not have been any. Some corporate attorneys act very conservatively in these matters, and others do not.

    Love these cars! Actually love all the old Chrysler muscle. Wish they would bring Plymouth back as a muscle brand. Making 2-3 specialty vehicles at a 50k-60k per annum volume would be wildly successful.

    Looks like the next Palm Phone is the Roadrunner. Why does it always get away??

    But Star Wars created the word "droid." Before then it was android. WB didn't create the word roadrunner. It existed before them.

    The roadrunner is an actual avian - which means Trademarks do not apply. What Time-Warner trademarked was the cartoon image of the roadrunner. You can't use that image, but the name is fair game.

    Next, don't we hope that 1.5 is a long way into testing and that 2.0 is already started?

    And I don't think that you can trademark a species of bird except when used uniquely in a context to describe a trademarked product.

    Yes, I think we all wish they would bring back flying cars.

    If they kept the spirit of the car (much as they have done with the Challenger), that might actually be rather epic. Hoping they move forward with that, for sure.

    It's probably a code name like others have said. I doubt it will be the final shipping model name.
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

    Terrible name. Go with something like Palm Pro, Palm Power, Palm Pure, whatever, but short and sweet. RoadRunner is a really overpriced internet company and a lawsuit for sure.

    it's not the real name! companies always use fake names when talking about prototype devices cause they are never sure which prototype ends up becoming the read device. also, the phones are made by the engineers, and the name is picked by marketing people.

    I've always liked the name Palm Prime best.
