Droid X is here! And Droid X is also sold out. That's the news from PC World, which reports today that Droid X stock has vanished from the Verizon Wireless online store – and from hundreds of Verizon retail outlets around the country. According to several top tech blogs, Verizon won't replenish its Droid X line until July 23, so Droid fanatics could find themselves without a brand new handset for another week.

As we noted recently, Sprint has announced that it sold more than 300,000 HTC EVO 4G handsets, outpacing the production capabilities of HTC, the Taiwanese company which produces the EVO 4G. Verizon Wireless has experienced similar problems with the Droid Incredible, but the company assured consumers this week that shortages wouldn't hinder the Droid X launch.
