Motorola announced today the release of the 11th Android phone made so far: the Motorola Droid X. The phone will be available for sale on July 15th 2010. No word on the expected online price, but Verizon mentioned $200 with a rebate as a potential launch price. What we do know are its amazing new features and some good old ones.
The buzz is mostly on the 4.3 inches screen, which is approaching the dimensions of what we believe it's the future of mobile computing. Easier to read than your old phone screens (think of Blackberry screen or the new iPhone 4 3.5 inch screen, for example) and much faster to browse with its 1-GHz processor and Google's Android software, version 2.2. Unlike the iPad the Droid X has the ability to support an Adobe Flash 10.1 player, so that one can enjoy watching flash videos. The phone itself can be used as a Wi-Fi hot spot for up to five users. It's that powerful!
The other main feature of this phone is the 720p HD video recording capability through its 8 megapixel camera with dual flash. The phone also sports 3 microphones that include noise cancellation.
Verizon Wireless will carry this phone and they join Google and Motorola in the hunt for passing iPhone sales sometimes down the line. With 160,000 Android phones sold so far and 400,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders, the line is very far, but with this phone a little less blurry.
