Verizon demos the Motorola DROID X2 on video
posted by Victor H. / May 20, 2011, 5:52 AM
The Motorola DROID X2 runs smoothly as both of its cores hum along at 1GHz under the hood, while up front you have a gorgeous 4.3-inch qHD screen. One of the notable features of the handset is the 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, which also gets demoed in the instructional videos. Other features covered include the Wi-Fi hotspot functionality, setting up corporate email, using the keypad, widgets and the home screen. Already intrigued? The price is $199 with a two-year agreement, or $600 if you choose an off-contract phone.

Moto is stupid for dumping the camera key. Some of us actually like that.

That may be true, but the reality of it is that motorola poorly designed the camera key. Working in a verizon retailer I see more droid x's where the camera key has popped out as the phone gets older. It seems like motorola decided it was cheaper to scrap the key to save money and headaches from faulty camera keys.

I didnt care for it. but that should have been the least of the worries. there were a few other things that should have been done to improve this phone, although rather minor changes, would have made this more or less the perfect phone. -the sensors next to the ear piece should be covered by the phone glass, and not flimsey plastic like they are -the four buttons at the bottom should be touch sensitive and not that buttons like they are -trim down that obnauctious camera hump on the back a little bit. besides that, the dual core along with higher resolution screen would make this phone amazing, especially for those of us who do not have 4G LTE around us at all.

The retail price is actually only $449.99 in line with the new Verizon pricing for phones since they have done away with one year contracts. http://www.verizonwireless.com
