The Motorola Droid X2 is due to launch in the States on May 26th, according to our sources. This is the follow up to the successful original smartphone which was a huge seller for Verizon. Latest rumors indicate that the pricing will be $199 with a two year contract.
The Droid X launched to massive sales in July 2010 and was sold out in a very short time period. Millions were sold and Amazon listed it as one of their best selling phones in 2010. It sported a tasty 4.3 inch screen and appealed to the geeky masses.
The Droid X2 looks set to continue the success story by offering a 1ghz Tegra 2 dual core processor, qHD display at 960×540 res, with an HDMI mirror mode. The X2 will ship with 8GB of storage via the microSD card, but it will also have 8GB built in. The interface is said to be Gingerbread (2.3) with Motorola’s Blur interface residing on top.
Verizon will probably not make a big deal of this release as they are focusing on their new LTE 4G network smartphones such as the HTC Thunderbolt. From what we hear however the battery drain will be heavy on the 4G network. the Droid X2 will probably be a big seller however, especially if the success of the original phone is anything to go by.
KitGuru says: a silent seller, even if Verizon don’t focus on it.
