Today Verizon Wireless, Motorola, Google and Adobe took the stage at a press conference in New York City to announced the new Droid X, Verizon's latest in its series of Android devices. The Droid X is a slab-style touch phone. It has a 4.3-inch screen with WVGA resolution (854 x 480 pixels), HD video capture and playback, HMDI out, streaming DLNA support and streaming video content. It can use its internet connection to create Wi-Fi hotspots for up to 5 other devices (additional $20 per month). It also has a 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP processor and an 8 megapixel camera with mechanical shutter, autofocus and dual LED flash. It will come with a lot of video content, such as V CAST Video, NFL Mobile App, BlockBuster, Skype Mobile and Back-Up Assistant. It as 8GB of internal storage and supports up to 32GB in the microSD slot. The Droid X will be preloaded with Swype for easier typing on the software QWERTY keyboard. Other radios include Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi. The Droid X will run Android 2.1 Eclair at launch, but will receive the Android 2.2 Froyo and Flash Player Mobile 10.1 via an over-the-air software update by the end of the summer. The Droid X will be available July 15 for $200 after a $100 mail-in rebate. Verizon Wireless said that any customer who's contract ends in 2010 will be able to upgrade to the Droid X at the upgrade price point.
Phone Scoop goes hands-on with the new Motorola Droid X. Based on our first impressions, it is the finest handset Motorola has ever produced.
Motorola swings for the fences and hits a home run with the Droid X. Verizon Wireless' new flagship device delivers on almost every feature, making it one of Motorola's best-ever phones.

Verizon's answer to the iPhone 4...
Let's be honest, this thing is no Nexus One or Droid Incredible (or even HTC Evo)... let alone iPhone 4. The original Droid hardware was pretty shoddy, this looks bad too. What happened to Motorola's awesome ID department?
Won't ship with Froyo , perhaps the brightest news of the Android world.... so they're launching a new phone with obsolete software. Nice going guys. I've had Froyo on my N1 for 2 months now.
Flash? Flash still isn't ready? Oh goodie. Speaking of Flash, did anyone catch that Palm said Adobe (despite wanting Flash everywhere) is leaving them out in the cold? So...
Google has to finish it and send it to Motorola who has to tweak it to their hardware and send it to Verizon, who has to tweak it and then push it back to...
Froyo is NOT OUT ON ANY DEVICE YET OFFICIALLY. and the Source code (what motorola needs to develop their os) was just released today. Pretty sure that it takes more than 15days ...

Again with them saying that the phone feels great in the hand, has an amazing build quality.
In summary, our first impressions are very
That's the beauty of android, there isn't one phone that is the only option. Just be...
This phone is amazing, and please dont let blue coyote convince you otherwise. I would love a version of this phone on Sprint though.

I'm sorry Mr. Moritz, but this is just plain tired. Yes, I am a Verizon subscriber who would have an iphone if Verizon sold a version, but all that aside Apple clearly is not going to go belly up because they can't targ...
