features of New Motorola Droid X - A competitor for iPhone4 ?

Updated on June 25, 2010

 I am reading a lot about the mobile phones and mobile apps in recent days,ever since iPhone4 had been launched. Today I was reading about the new smart phone from Motorola Droid X fully feature packed running on Android 2.1. This competes with the other feature rich android smart phone HTC Evo 4G. This can be considered as another competitor for the iPhone 4 apart from the 4 I mentioned here

Droid X display is not as sharp as iPhone 4's retina display. But its 854 X 800 is not to be ignored. It is larger than both iPhone 4 and HTC Evo 4G. This smart phone comes with 8 Mega Pixel camera compared to iPhone 4's 5 Mega Pixel camera. Being capable of recording HD video and a Dual LED flash for imaging.

Droid comes with 8 MB memory on board which can be extended by 32 MB using memory slot. A new feature that is worth mentioning is that it comes with a new Swype text input method. This seems to promise easy typing on touch screen mobiles.

However,this mobile is available and works only in US and that too on verizon only. The company says this mobile would be available in other contries but not in the near future. This mobile currently runs on Android 2.1 but would get an update for 2.2 in the few months to come.

      I am not technology savvy - very helpful hub! I had heard the term Droid before but didn't know what it looked like. Thank you!
