We have been trying to stay away from recent rumors about Droid 2 by Motorola. It looks like we will be able to cut through the noise on the subject June 23, 2010. Verizon has sent press invites to the official event.
The speakers list contains and who's who's of Verizon, Motorola and Google. Andy Rubin, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, and Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen will be present.We can safely assume that The Droid 2 will run Froyo for a couple reasons. One is the guest list and the other is the Froyo announcement at Google IO 2010. Also the tag line in the email. Unleashing The Next Generation Of Droid. Makes it pretty clear to us. Is Verizon trying to mitigate the Apple iPhone 4 effect? If they are launching the day before Apple New iPhone 4 could keep some buyers from rushing to the Apple Store. All these phones come with a cost and stepping in front of the iPhone 4 bus may slow it down and make those ready to pony up the cash think twice.
