Oh no. No, no, no.
Well, it’s finally got an official name. And no, it’s not Droid X2 or Droid X 2. It’s Droid X^2. X-squared, get it? Nice pun, Moto. Yet the joke is on you.
As it has been on the now defunct Symbian foundation with its idiotic ^-based naming scheme for ‘new’ Symbian builds. Wow. Just wow.
Anyway, we know the above because official press shots of the Droid X^2 have leaked courtesy of PocketNow. Here they are:
At this point, there’s not much you and I don’t know about this smartphone, aside from when Moto and Verizon will decide to finally announce it, as well as how much they’ll charge for it. Hopefully the recent trend of pricing high-end smartphones above $199.99 will not continue with the Droid X^2.
So, quick recap. The X^2 is the Droid X sans the camera button, but with an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, as well as qHD screen resolution (960×540). Let’s hope a RAM boost is also in there (though we don’t know that just yet).
We’re now waiting for all Verizon customers to be able to say “Droid X^2″ with a straight face. After that, this handset will probably hit the streets.
You can still get the original Droid X for a penny on Amazon, by the way.
