Motorola DROIDX2 Poses in New Video, Shows Off Dual-core Bootup Screen

We first reported back in January that the DROIDX2 would have a dual-core processor, so this video which shows the device booting up with the same dual-core startup that we’ve seen on the XOOM and Atrix 4G is pure sweetness to our eyes.  Of course, this could just be a placeholder bootup while the device is under development, but we’re crossing our fingers that it’s a sign of things to come.  And you’ll probably notice that the DX2 featured here is only running Froyo (Android 2.2) which is a little disappointing, especially with all of the leaks sneaking out for the original DX.  We’ll just assume that it’ll have 2.3 at launch…please Moto.

    The Droid X2 is identical to the Droid X and it has shown up in almost every benchmark comparison app as dual core Tegra 2 device as well as from numerous sorces…It will be dual core or it will be the same phone i already have and considering im OC it will be slower…Moto is not dumb enough to release the same phone twice with no upgrades

      Gingerbread is a definite as the Orignal X version is begging a roll out

    Am I the only one who realizes how INCREDIBLY easy it would be to make the OG Droid X look like that?

  • Hauntsma

    How can you even tell its a DX2? It looks like a DX running gingerbread leak with a custom boot logo..

    • Goblueboy

      no red hardware camera. thats the best indication by far. EVERYTHING ELSE IS THE SAME LOLOL

      • Hauntsma

        Yeah, but from the angle of the video you can’t see the volume keys either… I’m not convinced its the DX2…

    Very dissapointed! So much for “xtreme squared” and pushing the envelope. Hard to call anything with such a minor upgrade “extreme.” This is about extreme as code red mountain dew. I am looking for a 44oz red bull sold in a titanium can with crack sprinkled on the lid!

    Everything seems a bit laggy to me…

  • Skeetch79

    Looks like Gingerbread, but Android Version 2.2.2?

    What build is between Froyo and Gingerbread? Froyobread, maybe Gingeryo?

      FrozenBread or GingerYogurt, take you pick, both sound equally unappealing to me.

    Its sad that its Dual Core and Blur is still laggy….Moto just stop using Blur! Just give us Vanilla Android you would stop a lot of headaches.

      agreed… wouldnt motorola (and other manufacturers) be saving money by not having a team of devs. making Blur. if you just made the hardware and slapped Vanilla Android on there wouldnt they be cutting costs?

      It was laggy because it had just booted up…

    Looks alright, although MotoBlur and 2.2.2 (although at the very least this version fixes the losing SMS bug and IIRC the security bug that let those malicious clone apps on the Market mark) is two strikes against it. If this has a locked bootloader (which it 99% likely will) without improving something (like having Gingerbread at launch or MotoBlur suddenly not sucking) I’ll pass.

    Seriously, Motorola should take some tips for HTC and Sense because their skin is embarrassing.

    This is looking to be a pretty disappointing revision of the phone.

  • Rigual86

    Ya the same eye as first. Still lagging the first time the app screen opens up and scrolls. Not impressed.

      Hah seriously, I noticed the same thing. Eek.

        It almost makes dual core a waste, when the OS is not optimized yet. At least 2.3 would at least be a lot smoother and run better with dual core.

    • Gabby

      So funny that so many of us noticed that little lag on the app screen. How is it that the company pushing out this product does not notice and fix these issues?

    Why does the X2 have the same eye as the first?

    • Anonymous

      I agree, I was disappointed by the eye. Hopefully VZW will have a new Droid Eye when this is released.
