Droid X: Meet the Android phone that could finally take a bite out of Apple(Read article summary)
Droid X has arrived, and if early reports are any indication, Apple has a lot to fear from the newest phone in Motorola's popular Android line.
On Wednesday, Verizon took the tarp off the Droid X, the newest smartphone in Verizon's popular Android line. The Droid X wasn't exactly a secret – the Droid murmurs began in earnest earlier this month – but the handset, which sports a big screen and the Android 2.1 operating system, has already attracted a lot of buzz. For good reason: In many ways, the Droid X is a better phone than the forthcoming iPhone 4.
Don't believe us? Let's get down to the nuts and bolts. First, the screen. According to Steve Jobs, the iPhone 4 will feature 326 pixels-per-inch, four times the pixel density of the iPhone 3G S. The Droid X doesn't quite achieve that level of density, but it will arrive with a 4.3-inch touchscreen, almost an inch bigger than the 3.5 display on the iPhone 4.
