Print edition newspaper ad confirms Motorola Droid launch date of November 6

It would appear as if we now have a confirmation that Verizon will be launching the Droid as of November 6 and despite being hyped online, this news has come courtesy of a regular print newspaper.

This info, along with the image below came courtesy of Phandroid commenter hudman, who is apparently one of the few that are still willing to put up with ink covered fingers in order to get their news.

“Full page ad in the San Diego Union Tribune newspaper this morning says 11-06-09. No word on price? I’ve been hounding my business rep since July and cant get any info out of her, she claims she has no information.”

Of course, like pointed out in the comment we still need some pricing details. That said, I am not sure if I am more excited about this post because of the date of the Droid, or because it gives me some hope that regular newspapers are not completely dead — at least yet.
