Official: Verizon’s Next Generation Droid Launching June 23rd

June 15, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

We had heard mumblings that the next DROID would be announced some time soon, and it looks like Verizon Wireless was tired of waiting. We just got an invitation to the next big press conference, which will be hosted by Verizon, and feature speakers from Motorola, Adobe, and Google. Basically, everyone who would need to be talking to promote the next handset to feature the latest version of Android, on a big, big device.

So, what big device is it going to be? We heard that Verizon and Motorola were going to launch two DROID devices in July, and we imagine that it wouldn’t take much imagination to assume that they could be talking about two devices at the press conference, but our money is on one device: the Droid X. While the Droid 2 has been rumored as well, it just doesn’t feel like its big enough to get this kind of attention.

As for the Droid X, we’d be looking at the official unveiling of the 4.3-inch device. Which, will at least run Android 2.1. But, considering the CEO of Adobe is going to be on hand to talk about something, we might be willing to place our bets that it will be the first device on Verizon to run Android 2.2, or Froyo. We’re also looking at a 1GHz processor under the hood, and a new version of Motorola’s MOTOBLUR, codenamed NinjaBLUR
