Verizon’s Droid Site Updated, Includes Droid X

The Droid X by Motorola is officially official my friends.  Verizon has added the new 4.3″ beast to their lineup of Droid devices and also given it a new dedicated page you can see here.

If you hover over the device at Verizon’s site, you get 3 bullet points:

  1. 4.3″ display (NOT 4.4″)
  2. HDMI output
  3. 720p screen

Update: (Credit to Androidguys for this) In the meta info on the site (CTRL+U) you will find these interesting tidbits…

“Be the first to discover the new Droid Touch equipped with a 8-megapixel camera, 1 GHZ of power, a 4.3in display and high-speed mobile browsing. Check out the Next Generation of Does with the new Droid by Verizon Wireless.”

Droid Touch?  What?

You can also signup to receive info on the Droid X.  Here is the initial email…

Can we get to July 19th already?

Cheers Deathshead and T!

    It's posted here, very clearly. I replied to them and asked if they can actually announce the official resolution. It's probably going to be more vague info, but hopefully we can get some info!

    Droid Touch?! WTH?!
    Just another mistake by some peeps at VZW?
    I sure hope they don't name the thing the Touch… X is much better and “Touch” has been done way too many times! (iPod Touch, LG Chocolate Touch, LG EnV Touch, etc…)
    Putting “touch” in the name seems to be something that companies do for devices that previously didn't have touchscreens, for the most part…

    So 720P screen means 1280×720 pixels, right? That's very nice if it's correct. It is about the same DPI of the new Iphone, with more real estate. Everything we've heard so far is it will have the 865×480 screen like the Droid, but in a larger size – which is fine with me – the old droid has pixels so fine I can't see them, which I guess makes it my personal “retina” display.

    where can i get the the EYE bootlogo on my droid? any links please?!!

      Search “droid eye live wallpaper” in the market.

  • jbfickler

    OK, so had my droid for 8 months now…want the droid X….

    How much is it gonna cost me to early upgrade?

    • Tabe

      Full price for the phone! =X
      If you wait 4+ more months and are on the primary line you should be able to upgrade with the 2yr pricing. But of course there might be an even sweeter phone out by then! lol

  • t0ni

    I wonder if we'll crash Verizon's server? =)

    • picaso86

      toni – where can i get it?

  • pdash

    I got some hands on time with the HTC Evo, it didn't feel too big at all. Fit well in my pocket, and the screen was brilliant. As long as this isn't too much bigger, size shouldn't be a problem at all…

    • Tabe

      It's overall thinner, less wide (i think) and lighter than EVO. Just a little bit taller.

  • Ace Z.

    No way in hell that phone can hold a 720p screen. Shyt…I'll sell my 1080p LCD TV and use this bad boy and its 4.3'' display as my mount TV lol. Seriously, if it is (which I doubt) I'm 100% sold man. What happened to the DROID 2? I'm guessing they have something up their sleeve with the DROID 2 and will announce it on the 23rd.

      I saw this comment on Engadget:
      “http://www.engadget.com/2009/06/12/kopin-crafts-worlds-smallest-vga-microdisplay-2k-x-2k-postage/
      If you can cram VGA into a dime, you can cram 720p into 4.3″ no problem.”

      Now, I don't know if it's possible yet but it's not unlikely!!

    • Fartbag

      720p recording, not 720p screen
      T-mobiles new Galaxy S will have a super AMELOD screen

  • kulz

    720p screen? yea right!!! only records video in 720p i bet ;p

  • aggressor2323

    How about some early upgrades Verizon?

  • droidroks

    Never thought being on a 2yr contract was a good thing and then I realized it helps me from getting another droid anytime soon. Heck when I'm due for an upgrade Motorolas going to have a 2.0processor and many other goodies on sick a$$ new Drooids.

  • thescreensavers

    Sweet! Now what about the Droid 2? I hope they do come out at the same time.

        The Droid X does sound mighty tasty.

      • MBenson

        Yea, I like to call my a satchel as well! The stuff in mine is way more cool than what Indie could have possibly had in his…

    Only thing I'm not feeling are those hardware front buttons.

  • EC8CH

    Assimilated? Come on Verizon, stop mixing up your Star Trek and Star Wars terminology.

  • briderx

    Awesome stuff like always Kellex! Thanks!
    720p screen.. ha ha ha.. No.

  • El El Kool J

    Don't hurt em Verizon! Let at&t get some spotlight with their new phone(s) remember there's a new colored iPhone haha!! Sorry at&t only so many laps in a race ! Droid>iPhone

  • ircmaxell

    Wait, 720p SCREEN? As in 1280×720? Really? Good God!

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/WLJ7ZQQXMDVQ3RNYF3VW65HJ5M Jason

      That's gotta be a mistake?!

      • ircmaxell

        Exactly my point. A 720p Camera, sure. But if it's really a 720p screen, they need to be advertising the cr@p out of it. “Droid does display video in true 720p (without using a screen that has a higher pixel density than humans can see)!”

        • Tabe

          Ok, so we've seen the reference to a 720p screen twice now (once in the leaked add about the ESPN app and now on the site)… My question is when will someone at VZW realize this mistake and fix it?! It probably wouldn't be a good thing if they go forward and continue to advertise it as a feature… We all know there's no way it has a 720p screen!

  • http://matt.thechestbump.com Matt

    Might consider this for the HDMI out! For some reason I wasn't expecting this at all. Any rumors on non-contract pricing?

  • rals

    Nice

  • WhereIsTony

    Hopefully mopre info is coming

  • aarynk

    FIRST!!!!

    I want this phone!!!! It will be mine…
