Motorola’s Droid X2 becomes official for May 26th

Well it seems as if May 26th will be a pretty big and choice worthy day for any shopper looking for a new smart phone. Big Red and Motorola have officially announced the availability of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play and now the Motorola Droid X2 to be available on May 26th. Rumors have also been circulating about the LG Revolution seeing the same launch day, overkill? Sure. Excellence? Yes! The Motorola Droid X2 is the successor to the original very popular original Droid X. The DX2 has some excellent improvements, but will it be your next device?

The Droid X2 will commence its online pre-ordering Thursday and be available in brick and mortar stores on the 26th. The Motorola Droid X2 will run you about $200 bucks on a new contract and from how it reads it is worth every penny. The Droid X2 by design seems the same, but it’s the details that matter. The 4.3 inch screen stays the same size but gets a much needed upgrade to qHD specs that carry a 540 x 960 pixel resolution. The processor has also been upgraded from 1 GHz to 1Ghz dual core, this coupled with 512 MB of RAM make this super fast and efficient. The camera on the Droid X2 stays as is at 8 mega pixels and can record video in 720p HD. Out of the box the Droid X2 will run Android version 2.2 but has been confirmed by Motorola to be getting an update to 2.3 in the near future (fingers crossed). The Droid X2 will become Verizon’s first dual core device and aim’s to please. You can also expect the latest edition of MotoBlur on the Droid X2, however knowing the crowd interested that will probably not last too long. Another cool built in feature is the DX2’s ability to offer up “full display mirroring” which allows you to connect your DX2 to your HDMI compatible TV and see all of what your phone has to offer on a larger screen. While that idea is far from new, it’s good to know it’s offered out of the box.

So the question remains. Will it be the Xperia Play or the iconic Droid X2? Let us know in the comments below.
