Motorola Droid X goes public, official announcement coming next week

Welp, there it is. The Motorola Droid X. Not on a plane, not some blurrycam shot. It's 4.4 inches of Motorola goodness, and Engadget managed to score some time with it ahead of an expected launch event on June 23.

Their takeaway? A 4.4-inch -- bigger than the Evo 4G -- screen with Android 2.1 and a new Motoblur-ish skin. Swype's on board (so much for that T-Mobile exclusive), and the keyboard has honest-to-goodness multitouch. Performance is said to be plenty fast, thanks to its 1GHz processor.

It's going to be a battle of heavyweights this summer, we betcha. Peep some hands-on video after the break, and hit up Engadget for the full run-down. [Engadget]
