The Motorola Droid X, an Android OS-based device formerly known as the Droid Shadow, will have one of the largest touchscreens available on a smartphone when it debuts from Verizon next month. This model will also include an array of other cutting-edge features.
Information leaking out of Verizon has reveled the size of the Droid X’s display: 4.3 inches. If correct, this model will have a display larger than anything offered by Verizon today, and equaled only by Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G and T-Mobile’s HTC HD2.
The same source indicates that this model will be called the “Droid X”. Previously, unconfirmed reports indicated that this model would be called either the Droid Shadow or the Droid Xtreme.
More Details on the Motorola Droid X
According to earlier unconfirmed reports, the Droid X will have a high-end feature set, starting with a FWVGA (854×480) touchscreen set in a slim tablet shape without a physical keyboard.
It will debut running Google’s Android OS 2.1 on a 720 MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 processor, and an upgrade to the new Android OS 2.2 is in the offing.
The Motorola smartphone will also allegedly include a new version of MotoBlur, Motorola’s software that brings together messages from a range of social-networking services like Facebook and Twitter, text messages, as well as consumer and business email accounts, into a universal inbox.
The leaked specifications list for the Droid X includes an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video as well as an HDMI video-out port which will allegedly offer 1080p support.
It will also supposedly include 8 GB of internal storage and be bundled with an 8 GB microSD memory card.
All other specifications for this model remain unknown, but it’s likely to include the features that are typical in other high-end Android OS models, such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.
