In recent days, I've been pondering my next phone---it happens every time my Storm annoys me---and was a bit stumped about whether to go with a Motorola Droid or HTC Droid Eris.

Verizon Wireless may be making my life easier. Enter the two Droids for one deal.

Verizon is offering a buy a Droid or Droid Eris get an Eris free deal. What's this pitch about?

Market share. These 2-for-1 promotions at Verizon have moved the needle repeatedly for Research in Motion. When these promotions get going you can monitor the BlackBerry progress on RIM's quarterly earnings. Verizon's 2-for-1 deals can move the units.

Now that Verizon is doing the same for Android rest assured that market share is going higher.

All Droid resources.
