Verizon is bringing out all levels of creepy when it comes to the Motorola Droid hype, replacing the green Android bot with a scary red eye and uncharacteristically strange television advertisements (when compared to past Verizon commercials, at least). The mystery (or fun, depending on how you look at it) continues with invitations going out to the media for a five hour event on October 28th. Billed as the "must-have device of the year," the Droid is slated as the first Android phone on the nation's largest wireless carrier.
At this point, it's pretty safe to assume that Verizon will announce a launch date at the event next week. Android 2.0 goodness, nice form factor, 5.0-megapixel camera...let the hype begin.
