Verizon Wireless Announced Droid X

As of July 15, you will be able to get your hands on a new Motorola/Google device called the Droid X. If you are an avid follower of Google’s new adventure into the mobile platform, you probably know all this. But in case you missed it, here’s the run-down:

New or interesting features:

  • 4.3″ display, with 480 x 854 (FWVGA) resolution
  • 8 GB on-device storage
  • 16 GB microSD card storage included
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 8 MP camera
  • Swype keyboard (built-in)
  • Email support: Exchange AciveSync 2003 & 2007, IMAP4, POP3
  • 3 microphones (front/back/sound cancellation)
  • Mobile hotspot ability, for up to 5 devices – $20/month on top of your data plan (with 2GB cap)
  • Off the shelf with Android 2.1 (Android Froyo (2.2) & Flash 10.1 to follow sometime over the summer (Froyo is not even released for the Nexus One)
  • Blockbuster video – watch/rent/buy movies straight from device
  • NFL Mobile – watch live soccer via device (too bad the World Cup will be over by then)
  • Offers remote wipe of device (we already had that with SecureWave)

The display and the speed are probably good features to upgrade for already. The camera, though, doesn’t hurt.

All Verizon customers with their contract expiring any time in 2010 are eligible for an upgrade.

Update:

As of 07/29/2010 my Droid X is rooted, so it can freely run Barnacle and provide free wifi.
