The X-Files. The X-Factor. Mega Man X. Malcom X. Let’s face it. Adding an X to anything or anyone’s name automatically makes it or them infinitely more badass (have you ever been scared by a regular file?)., which is probably why Motorola’s successor to last year’s wildly popular Droid is now called the Motorola Droid X.
Exclusive to Verizon (naturally), the new Droid is highly focused around media and sports a ginormous 4.3 inch touchscreen with 854 x 480 pixels resolution. Around back there’s an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and the ability to record 720p video, and you can save all those pictures and videos on the included 8 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 32GB with memory cards). You can even use the phone as a mobile hotspot for up to five other devices connected over WiFi. All of this is included in a package that, while closely mimicking the design of the earlier model, is only 9.9mm thick. Powering all this is a 1GHz Texas Instrument OMAP processor, 512MB of RAM, and Android 2.1, upgradable to the 2.2 version (Froyo) via a free over the air update later this summer. Speaking of summer, the Droid X will drop on July 15th for $199 on a two year contract and after a $100 rebate.
