The Droid smartphone lineup has been some of Verizon’s most popular phones since the Motorola Droid made its debut late last year. In recent weeks, HTC has been leading the headlines with the introduction of two of the most critically and publicly acclaimed smartphones currently available on the market, the Droid Incredible and the EVO 4G. Now, it seems like Motorola is looking to get back into the game with tomorrow morning’s announcement of the Android-powered Droid X.
There isn’t much known about the Droid X yet, other than that it will be big. Very big. Verizon’s website shows a side-by-side photo comparing the Droid X with the Droid and the HTC Droid Incredible, and it is noticeably longer than its two counterparts. We also know that it will have a 4.3 inch display, the same size as the EVO’s screen. One of the biggest critiques of the EVO has been its size, which is pushing the limits for some users on how large a smartphone can be while still being comfortable and convenient to use. It will be interesting to see if the Droid X has the same reception as the EVO, or if this larger size is a turn off for some users. The Droid X will also have 720p video recording, HDMI output, and the next generation of Motorola’s Motoblur interface.
The Droid X will be officially announced tomorrow, June 23. Skatter Tech founder Sahas Katta and myself will be attending and live-blogging the San Francisco event. The press conference will actually take place in New York City, but we’ll also be able to get our hands on the newest member of the Droid family and ask representatives about the phone shortly after. Stay tuned for further Skatter Tech Droid coverage tomorrow as we report live from the event.
Update 7:56 PM: Verizon Wireless, Google, Motorola and Adobe will be attending the event tomorrow. We’re hoping this phone will sport Android 2.2 and run Flash 10.1.
