Take a look at the screenshot below. Don't Hate the Geek got a tip from a well-placed source who passed along these Verizon slides, with a tentative launch date of August 12th for the Motorola Droid 2.
The bottom left corner is obscured, but it supposedly says "8/12" there, and in the next column, "Commerical launch of Droid 2."
Here is what the slide above, giving the timeline, says:
