For the millions of you waiting for the sexy white iPhone 4, you'll have to wait about a month longer.

Verizon's Motorola DROID X Gets Official, Coming On July 15th For $199.99

Labels: , , , , , ,

Now that the DROID Eris is no longer on Verizon, they have decided that today would be a big day. No, we're not talking about the iPhone 4 hitting customers a bit early, we're talking about the Motorola DROID X getting official! Verizon will be launching the DROID X on July 15th for $199.99 on a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate. The specs are exactly what we thought they were and it'll be available with Android 2.1 (with an updated and all-new custom UI) at launch. Phandroid points out that it'll be getting an update to Android 2.2 "Froyo" later this Summer. The most important specs are: the 4.3-inch WVGA (480 x 854 resolution) display, an HDMI port, an 8MP AF camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities, a TI OMAP 3640 1GHz CPU, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 9.9mm thin body, and a 1,540mAh battery. Below the picture is the full spec sheet, courtesy of Unwired View if that's what you want.

Update: Phandroid points out that, like AT&T and Apple, Verizon will be offering the DROID X to you if your contract ends anytime in 2010. That should boost sales a bit more.

Well, Vodafone now has their 845 Android-based handset but they've launched two more smartphones today. The first one is the HTC Wildfire which people are calling a mini Desire. This handset is now available for free on a 2-year contract where you'll have to pay £20 monthly. That contract will be enough to get you 300 minutes, unlimited texts, and just 500MB of data. The other handset that is now available on the carrier is the Samsung Galaxy S. This handset will also be free on contract but you'll have to pay £30 monthly. That'll come with 900 minutes, unlimited text, and 1GB of data. You may more for the Galaxy S, but you get more. Check out the Wildfire here, while the Galaxy S is here.
