Motorola Droid X: released today!
It’s not an Apple release day but, today is the day that the behemoth of a smart phone makes its way into the hearts and minds of all it encounters. Ok maybe not that dramatic, but July 15th is the release date for the new Motorola Droid X.
We have been following the Motorola Droid X for quite some time. The quite large Motorola Droid X is the newest Droid out of the Verizon camp and is sure to impress. Today you can get your hands on a new Motorola Droid X, for about 200 bucks when signing into a new sentence with Verizon. The Motorola Droid X’ screen covers about 4.3 inches of space and time runs a 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor. The new Motorola Droid X’s resolution on that massive screen runs 854 x 480. Verizon’s new Droid carries with it an 8 megapixel shutter camera where ever it goes; this camera is capable of recording video in 720p. If you’re not impressed yet keep reading. The Droid X is seemingly Verizon’s answer to the little EVO problem they are having lately. The Droid X runs Androids most recent operating system, version 2.1 and Motoblur was also stirred into the mix. The Motorola Droid X comes pre loaded with Swype and also is noted for having a multi touch keyboard option which is sure to be a hit with any emailing, or texting users (everyone who gets one). The new Motorola Droid comes with 8GB of onboard storage ships with a16 MB memory card and external memory can be expanded up to 32GB.
While the Droid X will be largely accepted by many in the industry it seems that its size carries with it a certain stigma of it not being a phone and more of a “multimedia player” and most that have used up until this point would agree that it will flex its muscle showing you a movie or playing your tunes. A full spec listing from Motorola of the new Droid X is listed below. Enjoy.
