Motorola DROID X Announced

Motorola a few days ago announced the Motorola DROID X. The DROID X has a 4.3 inch widescreen display, runs a 1GHz processor and is Flash 10.1 ready.

Features on the DROID X include a 1GHz processor and 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities as well as “loads of memory” as Motorola word it.

The Motorola DROID X will run Adobe Flash Player 10.1 when launched which for some will give it the edge on the iPhone 4.

“Nine months ago, we made a commitment to our customers to bring the openness of Android to the Verizon Wireless network,” said John Stratton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. “Since then, we have introduced the top-selling Android phone in the marketplace today the DROID by Motorola. DROID X takes that commitment to another level with exclusive content, faster processing speeds, and, of course, the reliability of our network.”

Motorola has put an 8 megapixel camera in the DROID X. A dual flash is also utilised for the camera if needed. Other features include HDMI connectivity and the ability to capture and playback HD content.

The DROID X doesn’t come with the latest Android 2.2 OS pre-installed and instead, it will get this update in the latter half of the summer along with the update to use Adobe Flash 10.1 on the device. This update will be an OTA update.

When launched on July 15 the DROID X will be priced at $199.99 (after a mail-in rebate). You’ll also need to sign a two year agreement with Verizon.

Overall it looks like a very nice smartphone and a worthy competitor to the iPhone 4… especially when it gets the Android 2.2 update late summer.
