Its not like this news comes as all that much of a surprise, but it is still nice to see it confirmed. Basically it looks like those creepy looking mailers that we mentioned yesterday have indeed gone out to those lucky enough to be invited.
Bottom line, Verizon Wireless will be hosting an event on October 28 to unveil the Motorola Droid. Now it looks like we are just going to have to wait until then before we learn when the handset will actually be available for purchase. Not to mention how much it will set you back in terms of pricing.
I will say though, it is nice to see Verizon putting so much effort into this, not to mention the hype they are creating. They are describing the Droid as the “must-have device of the year.” Sweet, and this sounds like good news for Android in general.
