Verizon Unveils Flash-ready Motorola Droid X, the “iPhone Killer”

Verizon and Motorola unveiled the new Android-powered Droid X, which is dubbed as the new “iPhone killer” with its bigger screen and much superior data processor.

The companies hope to give Apple Inc. and AT&T a run for their money with the release of the device.

A day before the global launching of the new Apple iPhone 4, Verizon Wireless and Motorola Inc have unveiled the new Droid X, which runs on Android software and has a 4.3-inch interface.

In a press event in New York City, Verizon and Motorola has released the long-awaited Android-powered device called the Droid X, hoping to compete directly against the highly popular iPhone 4.

The new Droid X, which will go on sale on July 15, has a 4.3-inch display and an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash.

The phone will sell for $199 under a two-year contract with Verizon. Other subscription features such as the unlimited data and mobile Internet use will be charged $30 a month. While voice plans will be charged $40 a month, the company said.

The new device also has a built-in GPS and Bluetooth… and a microSD memory slot – expandable up to 16GB. It also Wi-Fi capable, which in theory, would allow users to experience one of the fastest mobile Internet connection.

Three microphones, including one for noise-cancelling, were also intergraded in the device making video and voice calls clearer and more exciting.

The display of the new Droid X is also much bigger compared to the new iPhone, making mobile Internet use a more pleasant experience.
