Review: Motorola's Droid X
Perhaps due to the ginormous display, Verizon is pitching the Droid X as a video monster. Does it live up to that claim? Well, that depends.
There is a Blockbuster application preinstalled. You can rent movies from it for $4 for a 24-hour window. Movies cost $15 to $20 to buy.
I side-loaded three movies. Two of them played back with no problems, but one wouldn't play at all. The two that worked looked great on the Droid X's display, though a darker room is the best place to watch. Sun glare and reflections can easily mar a movie.

The Droid X also has Verizon's V CAST Video service on board. V CAST Video lets you stream video clips over Verizon's 3G network. This is not the same as MediaFLO's V CAST TV, which is live television. V CAST Video costs extra to access. Our review unit wasn't properly provisioned to test it out.
The other big feature is the MediaShare software and HDMI out port. MediaShare ties together with DLNA and can let Droid X users access or send content to/from the Droid and other DLNA-equipped devices. It works with protected content and unprotected content. The movies that I have ripped on my own at home wouldn't playback through the MediaShare software, though, rendering it useless in my tests.
