Aaron inboxes the Motorola DROID X2, the successor to the popular DROID X.  While it looks virtually unchanged from the original, it's rocking several improvements under the hood, including a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor (a first for Verizon's smartphone line), 4.3-inch high-resolution qHD display, and a revamped build of Motorola's MOTOBLUR user interface.  It's shipping with Android 2.2, though the press release clearly states that it will be updated to Android 2.3.

It'll be available in Verizon Wireless retail stores on May 26th for $199.99 with a two-year agreement.  Sure, it's no 4G wonder, but for those that want a nice device that packs a punch, the Motorola DROID X2 should be a good option.

Dewayne Williams This phone has been a nightmare... music playback is choppy even with a class 10 microSD, pandora is choppy, alarm clock doesn't work, does not dial out calls, it lags, random reboots, only 40 MB of available RAM after boot. Problems continue even after several factory resets and cache wipes. This phone is going to be returned tomorrow. In fact, I will return the Motorola XOOM too, I am done with Android and Motorola.
Giorgi Kvirikashvili James Droid x2 actually sucks ya know, motorola didn't upgrade anything,except processor!!!
Jeremy Gillett no get a 4g by far
Buckaroo Banzai My DROID X is just fine. No need to upgrade anytime soon.
Jerimiah Reece After seeing a few X2 review videos online today, I'm impressed. It's tempting as a replacement for my BB Tour. However, I don't want physical buttons on the bottom. I want the option of 4G for later, and I want the front facing camera for future Skype with the wife/kids. Trying to hang in there and wait out the Bionic. But I'm getting tired of waiting.
Shane Swails That was along time ago, Zach....lol
Zach Cline Nice mulltet Shane.
Zach Cline The iPhone is not junk. But the droid x 2 is nothing special.
Jordan Brown iPhone 4 is $200. Why get that piece of junk?
Douglas J Kmiotek I like that I wouldn't need to squint to see the web on it, like I do w/my iPhone. I wish it was available on AT&T as well.

Kamal Halder If we talk about Custom OS than Motorola is the best, Love BLUR, it's even better than HTC Sense and Samsung Friends and touch wiz isn't it.
Art Morris Motorola hardware was always pretty good. It was their software that sucked. That's why their Droids are pretty good. Great hardware with Google's software.....
Zac Johnson L T E FTW!
Suzanne McKeown Waiting for the evo 3d it's on preorder

Tell you one thing if moto and big red don't drop my bionic on the shelves soon... Imma make my own phone lol...
Ryon Lewis will upgrade to 4g. Waiting on the 3D Evo in September

Latorrance Lee motorola made atrix best phone ever
Nathan Ross Doesn't matter how fast you can browse because soon Verizon will cap there data plans. Pretty stupid if you ask me. Why have a phone that is used for data only to put it on a leash.
Latorrance Lee not all motorola phones suck.

Stephani Espinoza I'll pass...

Jose Ocampo @William, that would be Sprint's hTc EVO 3D, 4G. the Nations 1st 3D smarthphone(atleast anounced)
