Motorola Droid X


The four usual Android buttons are situated below the screen. They feel good and have excellent travel and feedback.

The Droid X has a 1GHz processor.

There are seven home screens, which can fit gobs of user content, apps, widgets, shortcuts and so on. Motorola and Verizon have pre-loaded pretty much every screen with at least a few apps and widgets. One thing that's awesome: the widgets can be resized. They aren't locked into one size. You can crop and resize them at will.

The Droid X runs Android 2.1, but Motorola has taken some of the elements of its Motoblur software and incorporated them into the user interface. Social networking apps.

My favorite new feature is the visual bookmarks Motorola is now using in the Android browser. Similar to Apple's CoverFlow, you can scan through your browsing history and bookmarks and float past 3D images of your favorite sites. Very cool.

Based on the few moments we've spent with the Droid X, it is a sure-fire winner. Verizon Wireless and Motorola are going to sell bazillions of these things. It impresses all the way around. We can safely say that Motorola knocked it out of the park.
