Review: Motorola's Droid X
The Droid X supports both mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets. I was able to pair it successfully with a number of different devices, including two PCs and various headsets. Call quality was excellent through a stereo headset. What's really great is that the Droid X supports voice commands via Bluetooth. That's an added bonus. Music sounded good through stereo Bluetooth headphones, though it wasn't quite up to par with the mono headset.
A quick press of the lock key lights up the screen and shows the time nice and large. The time is nearly always visible in the top info bar. There are so many clocks and clock skins you can download from the Android Market, you can really configure the clock in pretty much any way you like.
The only navigation service on board the Droid X is Google Maps. VZ Navigator is absent, and that's fine with me. I haven't had time to do a test trip with Google Maps on the Droid X, but Google Maps is pretty proven software on Android handsets at this point. In the few GPS tests I conducted, the Droid X pinned my location to within about 10 feet in less than 15 seconds. That's pretty good GPS accuracy.
