As we await the unveiling of the Motorola DROID X MB810
next week in NYC on June 23rd
, we're hearing that the Android device will come pre-loaded with some additional apps out of the box. A few of these include one for Blockbuster on-line (which we also saw on the HTC HD2
), as well as the popular SWYPE on-screen keyboard, an FM Radio (which is news to us), Motorola Phone Portal, Skype, Backup Assistant, City ID, Motorola DLNA, Visual Voice Mail, and even Verizon's 3G Mobile Hotspot. With the Mobile Hotspot
app (that is also on the Verizon Palm Pre Plus
and Pixi Plus
) you can connect up to 5 other Wi-Fi devices to the phone, which will use data over Verizon's EVDO Rev A network, though there's no word yet if it will be free (like it is on the Palm devices) or will incur the original price of $40/month.
