Updated: added details
Verizon Wireless today announced the Motorola Droid X2, a sequel to last year's hit phone that steps its 4.3-inch display up to qHD (540 x 960) resolution and adds a dual-core 1GHz processor engine under the hood. The Droid X2 sticks with 3G cellular technology but includes support for Verizon's Wi-Fi hotspot service for up to five devices. It offers the Swype QWERTY keyboard, GPS, Bluetooth, and an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, and 720p HD video capture. It will ship with Android 2.2, but Verizon said it will be updated to Android 2.3. It is available online starting May 19 for $199.99 with contract. It will be available in retail stores starting May 26.
