Verizon Announces Next Google Android Phone: The Droid X

Verizon has announced the next phone in its Droid line of Google Android handsets: the Droid X. Available on July 15 for $199.99 (after rebate with a two-year contract), the phone combines powerful hardware from Motorola, a great operating system from Google, and Verizon’s outstanding network.

The Droid X is armed with a 1GHz OMAP CPU, 8MB of internal storage, a 16GB MicroSD card, a 4.3-inch, Android 2.1 with MotoBlur, an eight-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and 512MB of RAM. Android 2.2 (FroYo) and support for Flash 10.1 will be available later this summer.

This should be a smoking phone that’s a step up from the HTC Evo 4G that I’m currently playing with. The hardware is a bit better and I expect the call quality to be superior than the Evo’s. That said, Verizon’s service is more expensive than Sprint’s and this phone will not support the company’s upcoming 4G LTE network. I also prefer HTC Sense over MotoBlur.

What do you think of this scorcher from Verizon? Anyone interested in picking it up?

  1. My review unit should finally arrive tomorrow. I'm going to review over the course of a week, similar to what I did with the Evo 4G. If there are any features you want me to pay special attention to, please let me know.

  2. I'm always interested in hearing about the browser. If I get hired at Best Buy soon, I should finally be able to start working toward getting my own smartphone.
