X marks the spot for Motorola and Verizon
For those Verizon Wireless customers who considered splitting to Sprint for the EVO 4G, you might be glad that you stayed. The upcoming Motorola DROID X features a 4.4 inch screen with resolution of 854 x 480, topping the Sprint device by one tenth of an inch. The DROID X will come with a Blockbuster app standard and a new form of Motoblur on top of Android 2.1. The camera is 8MP with 720p video capture. Swype comes installed on the phone out of the box. Need we add that the handset is equipped with a 1GHz processor? This is going to be an interesting showdown between the DROID X, the EVO 4G and the iPhone 4. The DROID Incredible? That looks like it will be heading for the cutout bin when this Motorola drops. As we reported earlier, we could see that happen on July 19th. There still is a question about which version of Android will be on the DROID X at launch. While Android 2.1 has been the favorite, the fact that Adobe will be at the product's introduction next week makes it possible that Flash 10.1-and thus Android 2.2-will come on the handset at launch.

Personally i agree. I think this is somewhere between a phone and a tablet. It looks cool but just too freaking big for me.

this thing is also noticeably thinner than the Evo too if you look at Engadget's comparison. the Incredible might need to make 4 inches of extra space in that cutout bin.

Its not an extra inch bigger, its .1 inch bigger than the evo. The actual phone size looks way to big. I have the Evo and its just big enough, any bigger is just to have bragging rights. The Moto X does look good, but I have a horrible taste in my mouth from the crap they have made in the past. Ill stick with Sense UI.

scorpio, their android handsets so far have been great. their old crap sucks, their new crap rocks. cliq and droid and all their little variants have been good stuff. That looks like a great new flagship phone. I wish it were that thin with a keyboard though, that would be awesome.

I think you meant one TENTH OF AN inch in your article; 4.4 vs 4.3 inches.

Regardless of the size difference I want this phone pretty bad. I was really tempted into buying the incredible because of how similar the specs are turning out to be and i thought this might be a little big. But looking at it now this has turned into a must have.

This is nice but I'd rather have the Droid 2.

About 2 months ago i would have been with you, but this bad boy comes with Swype and Ive come to prefer it over all other keyboards including physical ones

It makes more sense to put it on the droid x because of the screen size and other specs if he isn't going to use the keyboard.

Its not 4g doesnt have a mobile hotspot no frontfacing camera and did you notice when the light hit that phone the glare was horrible and i i dont like that lump in the back for the camera

Verizon is working on the 4g thing, and the glare is really just based off the way you have to phone angled it looked like so don't till the phone into the sun. I do agree with the front facing camera and mobile hotspot though. Other than that though the little lump in the back seems like it would help with the hold it set in your hand. Give you a grip, you know what i'm saying.

I currently have a evo 4g and it is a really nice phone but I will be taking it back before the 30 days are up for this beast. 4g isn't in enough areas to make it worth it, I am actually in a 4g area but see no increased speeds over 3g with a solid 4g connection, it might get better with time but for right now and the foreseeable future i doubt it. Sprint charges $30 a month for the mobile hotspot feature, but froyo update will come with a hotspot ability so we will see how that all turns out. VZW might charge for it but might not making it quite a bit cheaper than sprints. I do understand that a lot of people want a front facing camera, but me personally that is a novelty item that would see no use at all. I agree the glare did look bad but at least I could see the screen, where as my evo is just as useless in the sun as my friends incredible. Just counting the days until I can get my hands on one!

I totally agree with your comment about the front facing camera. I dont see how so many people see it as a necessity. Honestly how many people have more than one or two friends with phones that ALSO have a front facing camera. Its not like video calling is all the craze right now. Hell half the carriers out right now cant even support video calling anyway. This looks very sexy and I love the fact that when you put it down it seems like the "hump" will offset the phone from resting directly on the camera lens as it looks like is the case with the EVO and INC.

There is a app in the android market called fring the does video calling over 3g and it works pretty well

Fair enough with the app, but I still dont see it being a major advantage or disadvantage in choosing a phone unless you have more than two or three people who also have phones with front facing cameras.
