Motorola Droid Does November 9th



UPDATE: Many of our commenters have pointed out that 11.09 likely means November 2009 as the Droid Does campaign designates. So the launch date could very well be November 6th still. Phandroid readers are a bright bunch, I knew I liked you guys/gals for a reason!

We previously had rumor that the Motorola Droid was launching on November 6th. A promotional mailer sent to GearLog by Verizon’s PR agency seems to indicate the launch date could be November 9th. It clearly shows that SOMETHING is happening on that day… unless of course this picture is “shopped” (see left).

First of all lets hear your guesses on the dates we’ve heard so far… we’ve got the October 28th countdown clock, November 6th Google Ad and now November 9th promotional mailer. Thoughts?

I’d also like to make a proposition to Verizon’s marketing team. After the Droid launches they should shift from this sinister, Terminator-like promotion and do a COMPLETE 180 on their marketing efforts of “Droid Does”. They should turn “Droid Does” into a spoof of the old-school Bo Jackson advertisement claiming “Bo Knows (Fill In The Blank)”:

Hollywood is already reduced to remakes and plot repetition from previously successful movies, why shouldn’t advertisers do the same? Recycling… it does a body good.

  1. That could mean November 2009, like the add says.

  2. I’m pretty sure that the 11.09 stands for November 2009, not November 9th.

  3. Your welcome. I am really trying to keep on top of my Android research. Good article about RATS. That is truely amzing. Apple could only dream of technology like that.

  4. Good point Farch. I hope so! I cant wait for this to come out!!

  5. yea thats what I thought but all of the other ads i have seen spell out november so it could be either or. I don’t see it coming out later than November 9th. Now November 6th seems more likely cause its a Tuesdayand November 9th is a Friday. Time will tell.

  6. I agree, sites are going to say November 9th when that could easily mean 11/2009. I think announcement will come October 28th and availability will come November 6th. Either way its only a 3 day difference.

  7. lol, that’s definitely november 09. Nothing to see here, move along.

  8. If Droid has Android 2.0, Doesn’t this mean that 2.0 should be pushed OTA to existing handsets soon after?

  9. Am I the only one who thinks the iDon’t ads are a play on the old Sega Genesis vs Super Nintendo ads?
    Sega does what Nintendon’t!

  10. dammit dammit dammit I want my droid NOW

  11. We were holding off for the Storm 2 to be released and now we hear about the Droid? We even called the Verizon store for info on the Storm 2 and they said they didn’t know when it would be available.

    I think Verizon needs to be more user friendly with their ads to keep current customers. They get you in their realm and then jerk you around.

    They deleted GPS and Wi-Fi from other phones and pissed off alot of people. I use to be able to download pictures and music from the web straight to my phone and now that got blocked.

    Give it up*

  12. my source which if you have followed any of my comments has been on point said that i
    the flyer is nov 09 the year not the day and the annoucement is the 30th release is pending to some point in the first week of november this is inside facts not speculation I knew about the behold 3 months ago so, I trust my source

  13. Why can’t they just tell us already??????

  14. I’ve got the 11/28 Countdown Clock prediction myself. I watched for when the second to last digit changed, assumed that to be a “Nine” and went from there. Here’s my screenshot of clock, time taken, and digit translations.

  15. Update, upon seeing multiple ads that read: “Coming in November” I am inclined to believe that it will be announced the 28th and released in November.

    Have another, but didn’t upload correctly/can’t reupload. But the difference is that that one is in the sidebar.
