UPDATED with video: Verizon's Motorola Droid site take a jab at the iPhone by saying
iDon't have a real keyboard. iDon't run simultaneous apps. iDon't take night shots. iDon't allow open development. iDon't customize. iDon't run widgets. iDon't have interchangeable batteries. Everything iDon't...Droid Does.

This is the slogan on the new Motorola Droid teaser site that was unofficially launched by Verizon Wireless today. After viewing the catch phrases, you are instructed to enter your E-Mail address to receive updates. At the bottom of the screen there looks to be some type of countdown timer, but instead of numbers there are symbols, but it appears to be Months, Days, Hours, and Seconds. After you register your email address, you get the following reply saying that you don't need a smartphone, you need a supergenius in your pocket. Regardless, we're glad to see things are coming along and hope the Droid will be released before too long.

A few people on Howard Forums have claimed to decrypt  the countdown clock, and say it end Midnight Oct 30.
There is also a banner ad saying "Droid Does November".

*UPDATE 2*

It clearly says November at the end, and at the bottom there is legal disclosure saying
