The Droid X is finally official! It's an impressively large smartphone with an impressive spec list
- A huge 4.3", 16:9, 854x480 screen (that's 400,000 pixels)
- HDMI out and DLNA support
- 1GHz OMAP processor
Full Flash 10.1 (not available at launch)
- 8 gigs on board and a 16gig card included, but compatible with 32gig SD cards for a total potential memory of 40 gigs
- 512mb RAM
- 8 megapixel camera that captures 720p HD video
- Three microphones (outward-facing for video, noise-canceling, and regular)
- a 1570mAh battery, which should be 'comparable to the Droid 1' on battery life
- GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, naturally
WiFi Hotspot with support for tethering up to 5 devices will also be available for an additional $20 per month with a 2 gig cap.
Included video apps will include Blockbuster for renting or buying movies, V CAST video, NFL Mobile, Skype, and Backup Assistant. Skype Mobile will be "deeply integrated" on the Droid X. The software keyboard will support multitouch and use the excellent Swype keyboard by default. The Droid X will also have full support for Exchange push email, remote wipe, and other enterprise-class device management.
Verizon, Motorola, Adobe, and Google all got together to announce the device and the team of executives on stage were all excited about the device, but moreso what it represents: Android's now-established place in the top tier of the competing smartphone platforms.
The Droid X will be available July 15th for $199 after $100 rebate. Data service will be $29.99 and mobile hotspot functionality will cost an additional $20 per month. Also, any Verizon customer whose contracts ends anytime in 2010 is eligible for the upgrade pricing.
Unfortunately, neither Flash nor Froyo will be included on the device at launch.
