Well, well, well, look what just arrived in my in-box.

Verizon Wireless has just sent out invites for a press event on Wednesday, June 23, at which it will unveil its next Droid device, and judging by the speakers list--Google Vice President of Engineering Andy Rubin, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, and Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen--it looks like it we'll see the debut of the Droid 2 running on Android 2.2.

We'll find out, though, on June 23, and CNET will be at the event, which starts at 10 a.m. PDT, so be sure to check back then for our coverage. And introducing the phone a day before the iPhone 4 launch? Verizon, you got some gumption.
