Motorola DROID X2 is now official: May 19th release date on Verizon with a dual-core chip
The Motorola DROID X2, a sequel to the 4.3-inch original DROID X, is finally official and coming with a dual-core processor and “double the does.” The DROID X2 release date is set for May 19th online and May 26th in the offline stores.

The two cores hum along at 1GHz, powering the show on a 4.3-inch qHD (540 x 960) display. In addition, you get an 8-megapixel rear camera with continuous auto-focus and HD video capture and an HDMI-out port for viewing your data on an HD TV. All of that is spiced up with a new gallery application supporting tagging posting pictures on Flickr and Facebook. Disappointingly, the DROID X2 will initially ship with Android 2.2 Froyo, only later to be updated to Gingerbread and you'll have to rely on good ol' 3G for connectivity.

Verizon claims that the phone “doubles the does” and we can’t wait to check out the carrier’s claims. The Motorola DROID X2 price is set at $199 if tied with a two-year contract on Big Red, while off contract, the cost jumps to the hefty $600.
