Many Verizon stores to open early on Friday for launch of DROID
"Many" Verizon Wireless retail stores will open early at 7 or 8 am on Friday for the launch of the Motorola DROID. The highly anticipated Android powered device will be the first to be powered by the new Android 2.0 OS. Big Red and Motorola have been promoting the handset at a level not seen since last year's launch of the BlackBerry Storm. To check when your local store will be opening, it is advised to give them a call. Stores inside shopping malls will be opening at the regular time. Starting on Friday, Verizon will be holding in-store demonstrations on how DROID owners can get the most from the device. The phone will cost $199.99 after a $100 mail-in-rebate (in the form of a debit card) and a two year contract. Also launching Friday is the HTC DROID Eris, a lower priced Android phone powered by the 1.5 build of the OS. The HTC Hero variant is $99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a two year contract, as we have already reported.

Check with your local Verizon store and set your alarm clock accordingly. Losing a little sleep is nothing compared to the joys of playing around with your new Motorola DROID.
