Review: Motorola's Droid X
The Droid X comes with the newer Android music player. It isn't much different from the original music player that debuted on the G1 20 months ago. It offers basic library organization. If you want to add music to the microSD card, you have several options: 1. Pull out the card, stick it in your PC and drag-and-drop files directly onto the card; 2. Connect the Droid X via USB and choose "USB Mode" when the Droid X connects to the PC; 3. Use third-party software such as doubleTwist (separate download). Once your media is loaded, you're good to go.
The stock media player is bare bones, and I am growing tired of it — but it does get the job done. You can sort through your playlists, artists, albums and songs easily enough, and album art comes through properly when tagged to the music. The media player can be sent to the background while you do other things such as browser the web or check Twitter.
Music can be played back through regular stereo headphones or via stereo Bluetooth if you're into that sort of thing. Sound quality through wired headphones was excellent. Stereo Bluetooth wasn't quite as good.

Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha was asked during the Droid X press conference when a desktop media management app would become available. He said they are working on one, though he didn't say when it would be ready. Until then, you'll have to stick with third-party software.
The Droid X also has an FM radio. It worked surprisingly well, though stereo headphones are required in order for it to work.
