Verizon Wireless Announces DROID X Availibility, Pricing, Full Specs

Even though as a recent convert to Verizon and a happy HTC Droid Incredible owner I’m reluctant to see any new phone that makes mine obsolete or diminishes it in some way, it is nice to see that Verizon and Motorola keep trying to raise the bar with newer and more feature-rich smartphones. Case in point is the announcement late yesterday of the actual specs, release date and pricing for the next generation of Motorola DROID, better known as the DROID X.

Here’s the summary of specs for the device in a nice, easy to read list.

• Texas Instrument 1GHz Processor
• 4.3″ display with 854 x480 resolution, 400,000 pixels
• 8GB internal storage• 16 GB microSD card expansion (expandable to 32GB)
• 8 MP camera with dual flash, HD camcorder
• Integrated Multitouch keyboard, optional Swype keyboard
• 3G Mobile hotspot functionality with support for up to 5 devices, 2GB cap, $20 monthly fee
• GPS
• Bluetooth
• Wi-Fi
• Support for Exchange and Gmail for Business
• Adobe Flash Player 10.1 ready
• Android 2.1 with a “toned down” version of Motoblur

Yes, there’s no “out of the box” Flash support and no you don’t get Android 2.1 (aka Froyo) but Verizon does say they will be releasing an upgrade for both “issues” in the latter half of the Summer. So, you got that going for you if you end up getting the device, which is nice.

The DROID X arrives on July 15th for $199.00 after a $100.00 mail in rebate and a two year agreement. However, if your contract ends by December 31st, you can upgrade early to any smartphone, including this one, and still get the upgrade price.

Okay, the new DROID X does have some nice specs but after using the HTC Incredible for a few months now I have to say it is the closest thing to an iPhone Ive used that’s not made by Apple. Comparing the Incredible to the DROID X I think the Incredible is still the winner. Any Incredible users out there wanna back me up on that?

    what about battery life. My son has the droid x and the battery won't even last a day “of course he messes on it all day long”, but I still think it should at least last the whole day. and why do you like incredible better. I am still trying to make up my mind. Thx

    I had a Droid and upgraded to the Incredible about a month ago. I am happy with it and will keep it until a major advance is made, the Droid X doesn’t seem to be major enough for me.

    I have nothing to compare it to as it is my first ever smart phone, but God bless the Droid Incredible. I’m set, baby.

    HTC Incredible +1 for me. Won’t go back to AT&T and only to iPhone if it comes to Verizon. Until then, Incredible is, well, incredible.

    I Love my Incredible and i think the screen is a perfect size but, the screen is terrible in sunlight. If Droid X screen is better outdoors i think it would be worth buying over the incredible. The screen size on the Droid X does worry me because of battery life. The Evo4g has terrible battery life and the same size screen as Droidx.

    I love my Droid Incredible and wouldn’t trade it for any other phone on the market right now! I am fine with my smaller 3.7″ AMOLED screen because of how rich and vibrant it is…the ONLY possible things that could make my phone any better than it is would be Froyo and a front facing cam for video chat using Fring or Qik.

    I’m still waiting on my Incredible 🙁 Although from just the Specs.. a 4.3″ screen is borderline on a tablet.. who wants to carry a tablet around with them? I have owned the original Iphone, Iphone3G & Moto Droid… and Id have to say I’d chose the Incredible over all (have used a friends)

      Obviously I was talking about the Droid X’s 4.3″ screen being nearly a tablet
