The much awaited Motorola Droid X a.k.a Droid 2 is outed and ready for review and other formal announcements about pricing and availability. The android 2.1 powered Droid X will be carried by Verizon like its earlier version. Coming to the package, the Droid X is undoubtedly one of the best Android Smartphone to have in already competitive field with the advent of iPhone 4 and EVO 4G.

A lot of similarities exist between the earlier droid and this Smartphone but there are lots of good features it has packed additionally within a year that needs a mention. The Smartphone features a 4.4-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution capacitive screen which again is “OK” if you overlook the ordinary screen resolution.
The new Droid gets some serious attention on improving its multimedia features. The phone has got a new Blockbuster application, DLNA type app, separate HDMI dock and is loaded with a new MotoBlur kind of skin which helps you shift between various multimedia channels.
The 8-megapixel camera records video at 720p which again is a disappointment to me as HD video recording would correctly befit the big android Smartphone. Finally Droid gets the much needed multi-touch virtual keyboard and it preloads Swype when the keyboard is triggered for action.
Motorola Droid X got a competitive processor this time around. With 1GHz ARMv7 processor sitting at its heart you must expect a snappy performance. The memory option is just 8GB and that again is a kind of a less in my opinion. The Smartphone also has kind of battery management software to keep your Droid running for long hours before the need to pack juice reappears.
Droid X Review Summary
Overall the new Droid packs a punch in few areas like multimedia and performance but suffers badly when coming to screen resolution and video recording when compared to its competitors. Motorola Droid X would be great competitor to Evo 4G head on but it being the gadget of the year like the one last is a big doubt.
Official announcement of the Droid X
The Droid will be officially announced on June 23rd and invitations have already sent out. The meeting will be addressed by Google, Adobe, Motorola and Verizon Wireless representatives.
