And just like we first reported a week ago, the DROIDX2 by Motorola will launch May 19 for online orders and in stores May 26 for $199. It will NOT launch with Gingerbread as we called just days ago, but will be upgraded at some point which we’re thinking is in the very near future. It has HDMI mirroring, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, qHD 4.3″ screen, 512MB of RAM, 8GB on-board storage, 8GB pre-installed SD card, and a 8MP camera. It should be a beast of a phone – if only it had that front-facing camera and the power of 4G LTE though, right?
Is this your next phone?
