With Verizon’s Droid X Event Just a Day Away, Could We Be Seeing A July 2nd Launch?


Verizon invites participants of the media to check out the Motorola Droid X tomorrow, and we could be treated to the announcement of the phone’s launch date at that time. We’ve long heard July, and that was confirmed yesterday in the teaser they released for the device, but a narrower date may have already been revealed.


BriefMobile broke their video analysis tools out yesterday and went through the teaser frame-by-frame to try and pick out several new details. The biggest of which appears to be a slightly warped date that looks like it could spell out “7.2.2010”. As they noted, it could just be because of the weird warping effect (the extra “2” would come from the first digit in “2010”, being preceded by what looks like a music note but is most likely the “7”).

Maybe everyone’s just obsessing over this now, but thankfully we only have one more day to go before we get even more details in (hopefully) a straightforward announcement.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Clearly, the character “2” form “2010” got moved down left, just like the left part of the first “D” leter from “DROID”, nothing else.

  2. Viral marketing at its best! I am convinced that says 7-2-2010,warp or not that seems like too much of a coincidence.

  3. I want one now, please!

  4. Warping effect looks like it used the date 7.2010 and kind of overlay another warped image of the same date. Which would make it look like 7.2.2010 but your seeing the 7.2 part is actually the month and part of the year. I hope I’m wrong.

  5. Please be true. I just installed the iOS4 update on my iPhone 3GS and I am now officially ready to retire it. Too little, too late. The Droid X release date can’t come soon enough…

  6. Yea, I think that is some wishful thinking.

  7. I think the bigger question about the droid x, concerning its processor is whether the phone will be running android 2.1 or 2.2. We’ve seen the benchmark where the nexus one with 2.2 leads, the OMAP processor is next, and all other phones are really low including the nexus one with android 2.1. If the OMAP processor is able to get those speeds on android 2.1, then that processor is ridiculously fast and will speed past the snapdragon when it’s upgraded to 2.2. On the other hand, if that benchmark was running 2.2, then the snapdragon processor is clearly faster.

  8. Actually, if you rewatch it, it just says “07.2010”. I think any other effect is just their flickery like effects. Which can be a little distorting.

  9. I think verizon is great at marketing but not that good, oh yea and droid landing updated again said it’s heading south in 6hrs watever that means

  10. Jeez people, this is NOT true, if you watch the video it clearly is the “phase effect” distorting the numbers. Duh. No story here.


  11. Meanwhile, iPhone4, the second 4G phone (after Sprint/HTC’s Evo) and maybe the 5th or 6th to do multitasking, is in the corner, waving his arms and trying to shout over the din.

  12. the iPhone4 is NOT a 4G phone. The “4G” stands for 4th Generation.

  13. The iPhone 4 is not a 4G phone.
    4G means 4th generation of mobile technology.
    The iPhone 4 is the 4th iPhone iteration in the iPhone series.

    I wonder how many people are going with iPhone 4 thinking they are getting 4G service..

  14. Does anyone know if i should get the incredible or droid x?? What are the differences in both? Is the droid x made by motorola?

    I had the MotoDroid, and now the Incredible.

    The MotoDroid had a much better build quality, and a great LED notification light (at the surface, and very bright). But the MotoDroid had a very bad camera and took forrrrever to load.

    The Incredible is fast, but cheaper build quality (already had a piece of plastic break that surrounds the charging port), and the LED notifications system sucks (sunken in, and you can only have one color). The camera is great though.

    Sooo, if Moto X’s camera is good, then I’d say DEFINITELY go for the Moto X. Unless there’s not enough to go around on release day, then I’d say buy the incredible so I can be sure to get my hands on the X. heh.

  16. Verizon ‘s cellular network still cannot support both voice and data sumultaneously. That’s why I carry a second cellphone (a Samsung Sway) on my roadtrips because my mighty Droid (bot 11/03/09) usually suffices as a laptop. After I get a new Droid X, I would like to kill my little Samsung Sway to replace it for VOICE ONLY purposes on my “old” Droid. I hate the idea of paying for data services to Verizon for both Droid X when I get it, and also on the “old” Droid when that happens. Doesn’t seem right that Verizon will probably insist on it.

  17. It looks to me like its 11.2.2010 I cant wait that long

  18. The fact these phones do not work internationally is unthinkable! I am desparate to switch from ATT and found out yesterday Version Droid phones only work in North America. WTF?!

  19. you guys that are planning on buying the droid x that already have droids, CHILL THE FUCK DOWN SERIOUSLY. Let the people who actually have real problems with their shitty phones upgrade, seriously if you have a droid. great. stay with the one you have. you don’t NEED a new phone.
