The next generation of Droid phones is here and its name is Droid X.
Today, Verizon, Google and Adobe presented their new phone, the Droid X which will be released on 7/15/2010.
Initial impressions of the phone are great so far. Here’s a couple of specs:
- 854 x 480 Resolution Display
- 8 Megapixel camera with Dual flash
- 720P HD recording
- Flash 10.1 for Flash content
- 1GHz Processor
- 8GB Internal memory (upgradeable to 40GB with SD card)
- 512 RAM
- Android 2.1 (Expected to be updated to Android 2.2 (Froyo) very soon after launch)
- HDMI Output
The device is capable of being a 3G hotspot for up to 5 devices.
The screen is gorgeous. It’s no Retina Display by Apple but its a great look. The battery is quoted as being able to go up to 8 hours for talk time.
The phone does run MotoBlur on top of the Android OS. It’s an updated form of Motoblur and from what I’ve seen, it looks pretty good. It doesn’t look as goofy as the Motorola Backflip.
Droid X will be released on Verizon on July 7. It will price at $199 ($100 rebate).
All in all, it looks like great device and I expect it to be well received. I’m thinking about upgrading and switching to Verizon. I will wait to see what the official reviews say before making my choice.
