Motorola Droid X

After months of speculation, and tons of leaked photos, the second generation of Motorola Droid – Motorola Droid X is finally here. Verizon Wireless today unearthed the Droid X and introduced BLOCKBUSTER On Demand (by V CAST Video) which allows Motorola Droid X users to watch new releases from Blockbuster.

The DROID X features a fast 1GHz processor, 3G, Android Market, Android 2.1 (upgradeable to Android 2.2), and most surprisingly Flash Player 10.1 which was categorized as technology of the past by Steve Jobs.
“We are excited about full Flash support coming to the DROID X and other devices from Motorola,” said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief executive officer of Adobe. “Flash Player 10.1, which is one of Adobe’s most anticipated releases ever, has been redesigned from the ground up to deliver the kind of highly engaging experiences that consumers now expect from their mobile devices.”

The Motorola Droid X once updated to Android 2.2 will support push email for Exchange and Gmail. Corporate users can enjoy push delivery of e-mail; live widgets that stream messages to the home screen; filter widgets to differentiate work and home e-mail; corporate directory and Global look-up along with a unified calendar for Enterprise and sync with Google Calendar™. Security protocols allow remote password control and wipe via Exchange server.

“Nine months ago, we made a commitment to our customers to bring the openness of Android to the Verizon Wireless network,” said John Stratton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. “Since then, we have introduced the top-selling Android phone in the marketplace today – the DROID by Motorola. DROID X takes that commitment to another level with exclusive content, faster processing speeds, and, of course, the reliability of our network.”

“We are excited about full Flash support coming to the DROID X and other devices from Motorola,” said Shantanu Narayen, president and chief executive officer of Adobe. “Flash Player 10.1, which is one of Adobe’s most anticipated releases ever, has been redesigned from the ground up to deliver the kind of highly engaging experiences that consumers now expect from their mobile devices.”

“Movies and other video content look tremendous on DROID X, which has the screen, resolution and size to make it like nothing we’ve ever seen before on smartphones,” said John Stratton, chief marketing officer at Verizon Wireless. “Right out of the box, DROID X customers will be the first to experience the hundreds of movies that will be available through the Blockbuster app.”

“We are thrilled to expand our digital presence with this new app on DROID X. With our unique multi-channel capability to offer DVDs in store, by mail and via kiosks, and with a world-class digital offering in BLOCKBUSTER On Demand that is gaining momentum, our customers have even more convenient ways to access entertainment content from Blockbuster,” said Jim Keyes, chairman and chief executive officer, Blockbuster Inc. “Our customers have come to expect these types of innovations and immediate access to the latest hit movies. As the leading provider of entertainment, Blockbuster is uniquely able to offer customers access to the most popular titles where they are – through smartphones, such as DROID X, at the supermarket on their way home, in one of our neighborhood stores or through DVDs by mail – as only we can.”

The selling price of the Droid X is $199.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement.
