Motorola Droid X Will Be Available July 15 for $199
Today at the joint press event between Verizon, Motorola, and Google, the Motorola Droid X was officially announced along with some other important information.
The Motorola Droid X has been confirmed to contain a 4.3 inch touch screen, 1GHz processor, 8MP camera, 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities (which allows you to connect up to five devices), and comes preloaded with interesting apps such as NFL Mobile, Skype mobile, V CAST Video, EA Need for Speed Shift. With such a fast processor and big screen, it is no surprise Verizon and Motorola are pushing its ability to stream videos. Within the V Cast video, users will be able to take advantage of Blockbuster On Demand which allows you to rent and purchase videos. Now onto some more interesting information: the phone will not be equipped with Android 2.2 nor Adoble Flash 10.1 at launch. Instead, it will be updated with Froyo and Flash as soon as it becomes available, Verizon says in the “latter half of the summer.” The Motorola Droid X will be available through the online Verizon store, physical Verizon retail stores, and third-party retailers on July 15 for $199 on a new two year contract.
Verizon is allowing customers eligible for a contract upgrade between now and December 31, 2010 to use that upgrade now for the Droid X or any other smartphone. This will probably persuade many people to use their upgrade early and purchase the Droid X. For the Mobile WiFi tethering, Droid X customers will have to add a $20 monthly fee to their monthly bill. In case you go over the 2GB cap, Verizon will implement a 5 cent per megabyte overage fee.
