Motorola DROID X2 is hot-literally

Motorola DROID X2 is hot-literally
According to, the Motorola DROID X2 is hot. Ok, you probably knew that already, but we are actually talking about the unit overheating at times. One unit that was being tested by the crew at reached a temperature of 110 degrees when the phone was first turned on and was undergoing the data sync that takes place with a new Android model. Another time, the unit was streaming tunes using Google Music when once again the fever hit and the Motorola DROID X2 was once again at 110 degrees. Before the song was over, the phone had shut down in "cool down mode". Mind you, that was the only app open at the time.

A second Motorola DROID X2 model, starring in the video below, suffered from the same problems and taking two aspirin would not be the solution for the 109 degree reading on this phone. Neither Motorola nor Verizon would respond to questions about the situation. Verizon did take a look at the units in question, but said that the overheating was not taking place at models sold in its stores or on the units it had on hand to test.
