Verizon Teases the Droid X: 720p Video, HDMI

You might have seen an unofficial sneak peek of this phone earlier in the week. Dubbed the Droid X, the preview revealed a huge 4.4-inch, FWVGA (854x480) display; an 8-megapixel camera with flash (capable of shooting video in 720p); Android 2.1; a multitouch keyboard; a 1GHz ARMv7 processor; 8GB of storage; and special battery management software. Yesterday, Verizon confirmed the phone's existence by launching its dedicated Droid X product page.

With a big 'coming soon' underneath, the Motorola Droid X is flanked by the already available Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Incredible. So far the only details we've been able to glean from the homepage was confirmation of the giant screen (though it's actually 4.3-inches instead of the 4.4-inches we heard on Tuesday), the ability to shoot video in 720p and HDMI.

Verizon is expected to give the Droid X a proper unveiling on June 23, which is next Wednesday, so stay tuned for more!

    There is definitely a market for larger phones, but for me iPhone is about the right size. Having to ware this huge phone on you all the time is ugly.

    I need to see it in person... It looks like a monster! I wonder if the CSR at the Verizon store will let me detach it from the display to see if it fits in my pocket. What could possibly go wrong?

  • I was worried before I got my EVO, but after two weeks of having it I can say it feels great in my pocket and holding it. It actually feels better than my TP2 did cause it is slimmer. I feel bad for the people who bought the Incredible only to have a better phone come out 2 months later. They could've waited a little bit longer LOL

    Hell Yah!! So look forward to the X!! Been hesitating about on my next purchase due to size of screen, but the X finally answered my prayers. I narrowly escaped being locked into a 2 year verizon contract with the Incredible. Whew!

  • Wish it was a world phone! Too bad Verizon does not make most the smartphone a world phone.

    You sir have small pockets :D

    I think they're pretty nice looking. The screen is a *tad* big, but I've been complaining about the size (or lack thereof) of screens on smartphones for years, so I don't really have any say :D

    "having to wear this huge phone on you all the time is just ugly"

    because this phone is so much larger, making it ugly. It is larger compared to the phones next to it, and a little larger than the iPhone. Youre just mad that the communist leader won't allow you to have a bigger screen.

    Oh wait, the iPad. I forgot.
