Motorola Droid X2 finally arrives May 26th

The original Verizon spring roadmap had it in May and then we thought it was going to be May 12th, but it looks like it will be May 26th with direct fulfillment orders May 19th.

This has not been announced by either Motorola or Verizon, but we expect they will make the official announcement by next week.

The specs were leaked a few days ago:

  • 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor
  • 4.3-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen (that’s 540×960 pixels)
  • EV-DO Rev. A connectivity
  • 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash
  • 802.11 Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • HDMI out
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • Proximity, ambient light, accelerometer and compass sensors
  • 8GB of internal storage

The good news is that it is being shipped with Gingerbread, but I am still disappointed with the lack of a front-facing camera. I am not sure why Motorola thought to pack this much power into a phone and decided not to include one. They work very close with Google so they had to know that Google Talk video chat was eminent. For customers that will be signing a 2-year contract, I cannot recommend this phone. A lot of consumers will say to themselves that they don’t need it, but 2 years is a long time. The Droid 3 looks to be the better buy. Hopefully it will be out next month.
