DAILY DOT COM - Motorola and Verizon are taking the wraps off the latest DROID. The DROID X is anything but the X-factor; tech guru's have been talking about the super smartphone since the debut of the iPhone 4.
Verizon said the phone will cost $200 with a rebate and two-year wireless service contract.
The DROID X runs Google Inc.'s Android software and has a touch screen that is 4.3 inches diagonally and an 8-megapixel camera that can also record 720p HD videos.
The phone also comes with 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities, promises 8 hours of talk time and has a 1GHz processor (super fast web browser).
The DROID X will be available both online and in Verizon Wireless stores beginning Thursday.
Earlier this week Consumer Reports passed on the iPhone 4, so the DROID X is hitting the market at an interesting time.
Incidentally, its predecessor the Incredible remains on backorder.
