A campfire roasted Motorola DROID X

Back in the middle of 2010, Verizon customers couldn't ask for anything hotter than the Motorola DROID X. A big 4.3 inch, 480 x 854 resolution screen, a 1GHz TI OMAP and 512MB of RAM. Yeah, we know that these are all low-end specs today, a mere two years later. But many who purchased the "X" still use it today as their daily driver. And being a Motorola DROID model, you know it's built tough to survive almost anything.

But could the Motorola DROID X survive being dropped into a campfire like a marshmallow falling off a whittled stick? One man found out the other day when in a less than sober condition, he dropped his Motorola DROID X face first into a campfire. But as we said, the DROID line has always been built tough. Believe it or not, even in its scarred condition the touchscreen, buttons, camera and speaker all still work. The battery and microSD card are fused to the back of the unit which still recharges the battery. Smores, anyone?

This is the kind of PR motorola needs... mainly because doing something like that with most of todays models wont end well...

Just like vehicles and electronics, they dont build them like they used too... (only now its on purpose as it makes them more money...)
