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.
