Motorola DROID X2 Now Available Online

Verizon has decided to launch the Motorola DROID X2 a week early for you internet dwellers – you can now grab it up for $199.99 after a two-year contract on Verizon’s site. (Amazon is offering it for $150 if you’re looking to get it a bit cheaper.) No, you aren’t looking at a DROID X, folks. But its 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor inside and qHD display should do enough to set itself apart from the original. And no, there’s no Gingerbread, but are you going to let that stop you from getting Verizon’s most powerful DROID device (and their most powerful device period, really)?

There’s a DROID X2 section waiting for you at AndroidForums.com, too. You can be sure that the community of folks ready to scoop this thing up are convening there to talk about their purchase experience and excitement. And you can bet your pennies they’ll be talking about the having the phone itself once it ships out to them tomorrow morning. For those who want to take a look at the device before buying it, Verizon will have it in-store May 26th.

    $149 if you have corporate discount set up on your account and you’re eligible for an upgrade.

    Wonders if RAM is 512mb or 1gb? It’s not said in anything posted on phandroid or engadget. Let’s hear yarrelray cone on and say sprints network is better. EVO EVO EVO EVO EVO’s evo’s’s EVO’s’s’s. Sprint sprints sprints’ sprint’s. Anywho. Hopefully those of you buying this phone are doing so for the right reasons, I.e. You don’t care about bootloader, need a updrade, or you just want it. Anyone switching from another carrier: WELCOME TO AMERICAS LARGEST AND BY FAR MOST RELIABLE NETWORK. You will be ever so grateful you switched.

      Most of the time for Moto phones, check this site for full specs:

      http://developer.motorola.com/products/droid-x2-mb870/

      Its 512MB. It also confirmed HDMI mirror. I wasnt sure after what Moto did with the Atrix, but its listed here in detail with some links in the specs under Additional Features.

    Verry Nice.

    Only reservation I have about this is it not supporting 4g. 

    • TalkingMoose

      I’ll let the early adopters  suffer through the hardware and network issues with LTE.  I’ll get the LTE phone on my next upgrade when the bugs are worked out and the pricing stabilizes.

  • JulianZHuang

     no 4g? no buy.

  • droid.

    With my corp. discount it’s $159 

  • Aestep1014

    Considering my droid x has pushed me to be an apple iPhone fan, i’ll pass…

      User error…

      Considering I use mine as a GPS in my car (+ geocache when I have a free moment, + stereo for Pandora, Slacker, Scanner, and Amazon Cloud), gentle alarm clock with media dock, ability to receive calls and texts inside of my office building via Google Voice and sync my tasks and calendar through Taskos and AgendaWidget.  Did I forget to mention that I recorded our dunk contest at the middle school Faculty-Student game and posted it on YouTube within minutes?   (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkRPJzR3KtA by the way … SICK!)  I think I could go on and on.  I’ll agree with BGRUGGER … user error.  

      • jroc74

         Yea I still got my DX1 now. STILL going strong. Lovely phone. The only thing my DX1 will push me into is another Android phone…

    • BenCaldwell5

      I’ll agree that the Froyo Droid X at stock settings with Motoblur is a bit underwhelming as far as user experience (not features), but the Gingerbread leak improves the experience considerably.

      • Nlsme

        LP+ is all you need. 

        • http://twitter.com/fredhoffmann3 Fred Hoffmann

          I’m rocking GO Launcher and enjoying it.  I emailed the Dev’s about an issue going to landscape mode, and got an email back within 24 hours.  Awesome group.

        • BenCaldwell5

          I know, but a considerable amount of “normal” phone users don’t know this and use the crappy stock Motoblur 2.2 software (particularly the awful lockscreen and launcher which alone can convince people that it’s laggy phone with a crappy unresponsive touchscreen)

          • Nlsme

            One of the few videos of the X2, shows the lock screen. Butter smooth. The original X’s lockscreen was horrid. The rest of the phone, rock solid. Camera, awesome. Browser, awesome. Battery, awesome. Call quality, awesome. I could keep going, but you get the idea.

    The forum link takes you to the LG Optimus 2X section. :P

    may need to leave verizon if all we are going to get is recycled garbage (no 4g / no front facing camera) — or sub par 4g phones – 

    • TalkingMoose

      And go where? At least Verizon is putting together an actual 4G (LTE) network.  And why do you need a front facing camera?  To take pictures of yourself?  Does anyone care but you?  FFC has been around for years, but nobody in the US wanted one until Apple said they’re cool.  

      • JoYu

        Speak for yourself, I was considering this device since we are not going to have LTE in my area for a while, but I want a front camera for talking to the wife and kids, and not just because apple said it is cool.

  • Nlsme

    The verizon site says it has a slide out qwerty. WTF? And they downgraded to an 8gig sd. Edit:They fixed the qwerty mistake.

     What about Droid 3 any news news? :P

  • caclark74

    I’m gonna wait a couple of months.  The DX2 will be buy one get one free by the time the Bionic launches.
