Early Motorola Droid X preview


The gals at Engadget managed to get their hands-on on a Motorola Droid X and posted a preview of the device.The device definitely looks like a beast even next to the HTC EVO 4G. But according to the preview it has a 4.4″ screen with a resolution of 854×480 (compared to a the WVGA 4.3″ on the EVO and HD2) so the Droid X has a higher PPI than HTC’s latest and greatest. Under hood is apparently a TI OMAP 9630 clocked @ 1Ghz next to 8Gb of flash memory and as we have sen earlier the handset packs an 8 Mpix camera with Xenon flash capable of capturing 720P videos that can then be outputted via the HDMI connector on the side of the device. Based on the pictures aand HD video sample posted the camera (or the software/drivers behind..) of the Droid X is also better than the one found on the HTC EVO 4G. Android 2.1 is running the show with a little help from Moto’s updated MOTOBLUR UI (oh and the keyboard now features multi-touch! And Swype comes pre-loaded on the device too). Check out the videos after the break:
