New Verizon Droid X Specs Confirmed
It looks like Engadget got some alone time with the anticipated new Droid cell phone by Motorola – the Droid X. Verizon had tried to keep the smartphone under wraps, but as of yesterday it was officially announced and Verizon is sending out invitations to a press event about the next generation Droid. The Droid X looks to be Motorola’s response to the HTC EVO 4G as it sports a similar 4.3 inch touch screen.
In addition, the Droid X features Android 2.1, a revamped version of Motorblur (which is Motorola’s native software that aggregates social networking data), a 8MP camera, records video at 720p, and preloads Swype. Lastly, it boasts 8GB of internal storage and a 1GHz ARMv7 processor. The new smartphone easily replaces the HTC Droid Incredible as the headline phone of the Verizon network. Even as the Motorola Droid is still selling the strong, I imagine the Droid X to outsell the Incredible and Droid as long as Verizon can keep many Droid X’s in stock.
The Verizon press-only event is set to take place on June 23 and should clear up any questions about the phone including pricing and exactly availability date. It is interesting that the announcement of the Droid X coincides with the iPhone 4 pre-order launch. As of now, summer looks very exciting for smartphone enthusiasts since there are so many new releases.
