Motorola DROID X not only gets a cut in price, but also a cut in internal memory

Motorola DROID X not only gets a cut in price, but also a cut in internal memory
As the long time flagship model over at Verizon, the Motorola DROID X has started to feel a little long in the tooth. Many would-be buyers have been waiting to see how low the price of the phone will go, especially with the carrier's first 4G handset, the HTC Thunderbolt, expected to launch soon. Also, we recently showed you pictures of what appears to be the DROID X 2. Throw in the dual-core powered Motorola DROID Bionic and you can see why the days are numbered for the original DROID X.

Verizon has cut the price of the Motorola DROID X to $149.99 with a signed 2-year contract. At Costco, the handset can be purchased for as low as $9.99 with a 2-year contract. But one of the reasons for the price cut could be that once all units that come with a 16GB microSD card pre-installed are sold out, the phone will come with just a 2GB card instead. Now, that isn't the end of the world because you will still have 8GB of onboard memory for emails, apps, texts, etc. And if you need more, the DROID X supports microSD cards up to 32GB. And there is still a chance that the unit you buy could still have a 16GB microSD card installed. It all comes down to luck. Do you feel lucky?

The headline for this story is very misleading. The internal storage on the Droid X hasn't been cut, the external storage, via micro sd card, has been cut from 16GB to 2GB . The phone still comes with the 8GB of internal memory that it always has.

"Do you feel lucky?" yeah because you could ask the rep to check the phones to see if any of the phones in stock have the 16 gb or the 2 gb card. It's a pain in the ass but they'd comply. I sold 2 today that they were waiting on this price cut but they figured it'd be after the thunderbolt was released.

I wonder whether/if there is going to be a real Droid X2. From the specs, the Bionic would be a natural replacement for the Droid X. Maybe VZW is clearing out inventory of the Droid Xs and a price cut is a way to move the remaining inventory? It is getting curiouser and curiouser....

Thunderbolt will definitely be 200

This was a great phone until 2.2 was released for it. It became way too buggy and laggy, it was great at 2.1.

Hopefully verizon is just trying to clear its shelves for all these 4g phones that were released yesterday...

Oh, dual core powered system. That sounds nice. Perhaps I need to reconsider my budget. Thanks for mentioning that. I want to get seamless video streaming for my DISH Network employee Sling adapter. I can watch live or DVR recordings anywhere my service works and I LOVE it. I'm a TV junkie and I don't have enough time to just sit in front of the TV with a family and bringing work home.
