Verizon Motorola Droid X2 will finally become available on May 26, could come with Gingerbread

Last we heard anything about the Motorola Droid X2 for Verizon, it was supposed to finally hit the streets on May 12. Yes, today. And, obviously, that hasn’t happened.

Another thing that hasn’t happened? That insane Droid X^2 branding getting much traction. Which is very good.

Anyway, today a new internal document from Verizon has leaked, and it clearly states that the Droid X2 will be in shops on May 26. The smartphone’s launch for Direct Fulfillment channels is stated to happen on May 19, which may mean that there will be some kind of pre-order period for the Droid X’s successor.

Specs-wise, we know almost everything there is to know about this device already. It will have a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540) capacitive touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, 720p HD video capture, 8 GB of internal storage, an 8 GB microSD card preinstalled, and a 1540 mAh battery.

The big surprise is that the Droid X2 may launch sporting Android 2.3 Gingerbread, according to Droid-Life, which got the hint from the flyer above. The blue top bar has only appeared on the original Droid X with the update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and it’s clearly visible in the pictured Droid X2, so that may mean that the new handset will launch with this version of Android. Of course, it may just mean that Moto’s got a newfound love for that particular shade of blue. We’ll see.
