Verizon has officially announced the launch date of the Motorola Droid X2, its latest Android smartphone included in the Droid series.
The X2 will be available online starting tomorrow, May 19, and in stores starting May 26 – the same day the Xperia Play and LG Revolution will be out. As expected, the Moto Droid X2 will cost $199.99 on contract.
Unfortunately, the X2 runs Android 2.2 Froyo – but worry not, it will be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread sometime after launch.
The Motorola Droid X2 is Verizon’s first smartphone to have a 960 x 540 (qHD) touchscreen display, as well as the first to be powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor. It’s only 9.9mm thick and further features Wi-Fi, A-GPS, HDMI, DLNA, an 8MP autofocus camera with HD video recording, 512MB RAM, 8GB of on-board memory, and an 8GB card pre-installed. It is not LTE-capable, so if you really want 4G speeds, you should get the HTC Thunderbolt or the Samsung Droid Charge instead.
