Users who have a soft corner for 3G-enabled phones and enjoy the touchscreen experience may find this offering quite tempting. Verizon has just shed some light on Motorola’s Droid X touchscreen smartphone.
With ultra high-speed Web browsing, users can access Internet with 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities and enjoy intuitive social messaging. The phone’s fast 1GHz processor and loads of memory enable users to run more than two apps simultaneously with a sense of ease.
“Nine months ago, we made a commitment to our customers to bring the openness of Android to the Verizon Wireless network. Since then, we have introduced the top-selling Android phone in the marketplace today – the Droid by Motorola. Droid X takes that commitment to another level with exclusive content, faster processing speeds, and, of course, the reliability of our network,” remarked John Stratton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless.
Bedecked with a 4.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen, the Droid X allows users to view the latest movies, videos and TV Shows from Blockbuster On Demand presented by V Cast Video from Verizon. The handset blends a dual-flash 8 megapixel camera with HD camcorder, DLNA and HDMI connectivity for downloading, sharing and streaming personal content.
Users can also access over 65,000 applications from the Android Market alongside a multitude of exclusive Verizon Wireless applications like NFL Mobile, Skype mobile, V Cast Video, EA Need for Speed Shift and more. Droid users will be enabled with OTA updates for Android 2.2 and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 by the latter half of the summer.
Pretty interestingly, corporate users will enjoy support for Exchange and Gmail for business after the Android update. Features like push delivery of e-mail, live widgets, filter widgets, corporate directory, unified calendar for Enterprise and sync with Google Calendar will also be packed in the update. Further, security protocols of the handset provide users with remote password control through Exchange server.
Droid X by Motorola will be available online and at Verizon Wireless Communications Stores beginning July 15 for $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate.
