Verizon pins down Moto Droid release

(Updated with unveiling date) Verizon today virtually confirmed its release date for the Motorola Droid by shipping a press pack with a date. A box, obtained by Gearlog and likely others, includes just a Star Wars R2D2 toy and a sheet that mentions November while pointing to Verizon's teaser page for the Android phone. The carrier has already alluded to a November release and in a separate invitation has promised a reveal on October 28th.

The release would come at a critical time for both Motorola and Verizon, arriving just as holiday sales ramp up and likely in time for Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and historically both the largest and the most profitable shopping day of any given year. Software problems led Verizon to delay the original BlackBerry Storm until November 21st last year and, due to remaining bugs, may have cost important Storm sales for the first one to two weeks.
