Are these the DROIDs you're looking for? Verizon announces event for July 23rd

Verizon has begun sending out press invites for an event that will be held in New York City exactly one week from today on Tuesday July 23rd. The invite isn't even being all that secretive either, saying directly that Verizon will "unveil the next generation of one of [its] most popular family of devices." That can only mean one thing: DROIDs.

We already know that Motorola has been working on a new set of DROID devices. We know that the Moto X will not be released under the DROID branding, but there will be the DROID Ultra, the DROID MAXX, and DROID Mini coming from Motorola. So, it is pretty much a given that we'll see those three devices on Tuesday, and that will mark the end of the DROID RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, and RAZR M.

It also makes it look like we'll be seeing the new Motorola DROIDs unveiled before we see the official announcement of the Motorola Moto X, unless Google/Motorola spring a surprise event before next Tuesday. We don't know a huge amount so far about the new DROIDs other than the Ultra and MAXX are expected to have Kevlar bodies, and 4.7" HD displays, while the DROID Mini is expected to have a 4.3" display.
