small lock/power button is a bit difficult to press if the phone is wearing a case

Released on July 15 2010, the "Droid X" (development codename "Shadow") is Motorola's successor to Motorola's wildly successful high-end Android smartphone Droid. The Droid X differs from the original Droid in featuring an updated TI processor with Cortex A8 core (TI OMAP 3630) clocked at 1GHz, an HDMI graphics output port, 8GB internal flash memory, 4.3" display with 854x480 resolution, no physical QWERTY keyboard, HD video capture, and an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash.

The Droid X's TI processor with Cortex A8 core ensures that it is more than capable of handling a variety of simultaneous applications running at once while its 8GB of internal flash memory ensures that there will be plenty of room to store apps and media. Additionally, the Droid X's 8 megapixel camera with 720p video recording capability allows for simple on-the-go high quality image and video documentation whiles its HDMI port allows for direct connection to HDTVs for direct HD video playback.

  • 8GB of internal memory
  • 4.3" display with 854x480 resolution

I got it I love it. It is one of the best phones/smart devices I have ever used. Well worth a 500.00 MSRP :) -DrQxx
