The upcoming Motorola Droid X is getting yet another photo shoot, and this time, the photos are crisp and clear. This is turning out to be a very badly kept secret for Verizon, but we sure don’t mind getting more leaks on the slim Motorola Android phone.
The more I see this device, the more I want it, but I still don’t want to pay Verizon prices. I’m spoiled with my T-Mobile service, and I don’t know if I’ll be switching anytime soon, but the X just looks like a gorgeous piece of machine. With a 4.3 inch screen, and only 9.9 mm thin, it’s massive yet slim. The Droid X should still be able to slip right into the pocket with ease. The Sprint HTC EVO 4G sports the same size screen as the X, yet is a couple mm thicker than Motorola’s upcoming smartphone. If a 4.3 inch display is just too much screen for you, then maybe you should wait it out a bit.
If what we’re seeing is true, though it’s said to be unconfirmed, the X will not sport a 1GHx Snapdragon processor. Instead it’s rumored to have a 750Mhz TI OMAP3630 processor instead. While that’s not a horrible clock speed, those who have experienced the speed of the Nexus One, Incredible, or EVO probably don’t want to take a step back. The X should still perform well, but is Motorola’s answer to the EVO good enough? The device sports a new breed of Motoblur skinned atop its Android 2.1 OS, and it’s said that it’s not as bad as you would think. Thank you, Motorola!
Verizon will supposedly be releasing a pair of new Motorola Androidphones next month, with employee training beginning at the end of June. If that statement is indeed true, we may see a simultaneous launch of both the Android 2.2 OS-powered Droid X and Droid 2.
Even though I want my next Android phone to have a keyboard, I’d probably still go with the Droid X. Interesting form-factor plus a large screen makes it good enough to pass up the almost identical-to-the-original Droid 2 for me.
Is the Droid X shaping up to be your next device?
