Few time ago Motorola and Verizon gather all journalists in New York to announce a new mobile device: Droid X. Like his brother(Droid), Droid X comes with some interesting features and will be one of the rivals for iPhone 4 or HTC Evo.
The front of the phone has a 4.3-inches WVGA screen that supports a 854 x 480 resolution and 16:9 ratio. Later this year, Adobe Flash Player will come to support video streaming as well as gaming experience.
The virtual keyboard supports multitouch, so you can type up to 50 words per minute using one continuous finger motion across the screen. Just under the screen there are positioned four physical buttons: Menu, Home, Back and Search.
Right on the back of the phone there’s an 8 megapixel camera equipped with digital zoom, auto focus, dual LED flash and image editing tools. Videos are captured in HD(720p) format and content can be displayed through DLNA and HDMI. The audio quality will be great, three microphones are available for directional audio capture and noise cancellation.
The internal features rock as well: 1Ghz OMAP processor and Android 2.1 with MotoBlur(Android Froyo will be supported somewhere this summer). The internal memory has 8 Gb, but with microSD card extension you can end up having up to 40 Gb. Under the back cover, it’s an 1540 mAh battery.
We found out that there also plenty of connectivity features available: 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, DLNA, HDMI, 3.5mm jack. Gps is available(through aGps) and comes with several applications: Google Maps, Google Maps Navigation, Google Latitude, Street View and eCompass. Droid X can also be used as mobile hotspot and can support up to five connected devices.
Webkit HTML5 based browser will be the first option to surf the Internet because it’s featuring pinch-to-zoom and Adobe Flash 10.1(after update).
Motorola Droid X smartphone will be available in US starting July 15 and will cost somewhere near $200(at two year contract).
