Postcard points to November 9th launch for Motorola Droid?
This article has been updated.

Yesterday we reported that the Droid's countdown clock on its' web site is set to hit zero on October 28th. No one knew if that meant the device would be launched on that date, or merely introduced to the public. We have a better idea now that postcards from Motorola have arrived at potential Droid buyer's homes with the date 11.09 in huge letters. This would seem to indicate that the device that does will be launched on November 9th (in case it doesn't mean November 2009, of course) after being introduced to the world on October 28th.

can anyone crack the countdown on the website? If you go on the page it has this thing where you put in your email so they can update you but at the bottom theres a countdown but its written in a "droid" language.

Well, I like the imagio alot, but its still windows mobile and can be a bit dificult to use if you have never used WinMo before... they both have huge screens, but the imagio is resistive, vs capacitive on the droid. I saw it all really boils down to if you want a real keyboard or not, or if you like Andoid vs WinMo. Imagio is pretty sweet, but I think that Android is a better OS for non-business type users, but thats just my opinion
