RESTON, VA – July 12, 2010 — Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced that it will carry the highly anticipated DROID X™ by Motorola when it officially launches on July 15 at 12:01 am PDT. The DROID X is the latest Android smartphone from Verizon Wireless and has the distinction of being the next generation of the company’s growing Droid family, succeeding its very popular predecessors- the DROID by Motorola and Droid Incredible by HTC.
In addition to operating on the Verizon’s 3G data network, the DROID X boasts a blazing fast 1GHz processor for high-speed web browsing, loads of memory – 8GB of onboard memory, a pre-installed 16GB memory card and the ability to support up to a total of 40GB. The Droid X also is equipped with 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities, which allows customers to simultaneously connect up to five Wi-Fi equipped devices to Verizon Wireless’ network when paired with a $20 Mobile Hotspot plan. DROID X is also equipped with the revolutionary Swype text-entry method made expressly for touch screen devices that lets users quickly write words without lifting a finger.
The DROID X is touted as a pocket-sized home theater. The sleek and sexy device boasts an impressive 4.3-inch high-resolution touch screen making it ideal for watching movies and videos that can be conveniently rented or bought directly from the pre-installed Blockbuster on Demand® presented by V CAST Video application. The device’s video capture is just as impressive with a 720p high definition camcorder, 8-megapixel camera, dual-flash, and HDMI port that lets users plug directly into an HDTV when they want to watch their movies on the big screen at home.
DROID X customers will also receive the Android 2.2 and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 with an over-the-air update when it becomes available in the summer, which will ensure an even more robust web experience.
