Motorola and Verizon officially launch the Droid X

24 Jun

First it was the HTC Evo, then the Samsung Galaxy S and today, Motorola and Verizon Wireless have lifted the covers off the latest flag bearer for Android – the Droid X. Yeah, we had already seen glimpses of the device and now with the official announcement, it is time for the Full Monty.



The Droid X has a 4.3 inch WVGA display (the same resolution as the Droid aka the Milestone), a 1 GHz processor, an 8.0 MP camera with dual flash that can shoot videos in 720p HD resolution, an HDMI port for connecting it to an HD TV and all possible connectivity options that you can expect from a high-end smartphone. Surprisingly, the Droid X still runs on Android 2.1 but both Motorola and Verizon Wireless promise an over-the-air update to Android 2.2 by the end of summer. Motorola has so far had a pretty good track record with Android updates, unlike HTC, which is yet to roll out an Android 2.1 update for the Hero in all markets.



The Droid X has 8 GB of internal memory and the sales pack comes bundled with a 16 GB microSD card. The superphone will be available on Verizon Wireless at a subsidized price of $199 in July. We hope to see a GSM variant for Europe and Asian markets being announced very soon. You can check out the spec sheet of the Droid X here.
