Motorola DROID X

Last updated: Jul 6th, 2010.

 Motorola DROID X is an Android powered smartphone with a 1GHz processor, huge 4.3-inch display with 480x854 pixels resolution, 8-megapixel camera with 720p motion video capture and many other features. It's the newest addition to Motorola's Droid line on the Verizon network. It's a rare phone due to its hardware navigation buttons, but nothing else really stands out aside from it being Motorola's first phone with a display this large.

Verizon spread a ton of hype throughout the country when the DROID X launched with its DROID Landing campaign. They took to twitter to announce a contest where a number of lucky scavenger hunters could get their very own Motorola DROID X for free, though we're sure those winners were locked into a two-year contract with Verizon.

The development community has approached the Motorola DROID X well as tons of dedicated developers work to make sure the device doesn't die long after it is off store shelves.
