Originally known as the Motorola Sholes, the recently dubbed ‘Droid’ device is set to arrive on Verizon very soon, and looks good for the money. However, the name ‘Droid’ appears to be something Verizon are…
I’ve posted my review of the Motorola DROID X for Verizon on MobileBurn.com, and I didn’t spend only a few hours with it like so many other guys that wrote reviews. Ahem. In any case, I like the device quite a bit, but wouldn’t tend to use one personally since I like smaller phones with keyboards. But I have to tell you, I liked it far more than the HTC EVO 4G for Sprint.
The Motorola DROID X for Verizon Wireless is the latest member of Verizon’s DROID lineup of Android powered smartphones. In this particular case, the DROID X runs the Android 2.1 OS and features a massive 4.3-inch touchscreen display that positions it squarely against HTC’s popular EVO 4G for Sprint.
The DROID X features a new suite of MOTOBLUR widgets for messaging, social networks, and other services that are completely resizable by the user, which is a really cool feature. The phone also sports an 8 megapixel camera that shoots very nice 720p HD video, and a very solid multi-touch capable web browser. Even the battery life is pretty good for a device this large.
There are a few missteps on the DROID X, but they are not likely to deter those that appreciate the large display and rugged good looks of the phone.
All four of my DROID X videos can be viewed in the video playlist player that appears after the jump.
