Not to be outdone by the white HTC EVO 4G, the Motorola DROID X has also slipped into the hands of some lucky owners well before its release date. The folks over at Droid-Life have received a tip from a user in Texas whose brother received his DROID X today. They also got news from a Verizon call center rep who says that there have been more than a few calls from folks asking about their shiny new DROID X that just arrived.
Droid-Life has a theory about the early arrivals and the @DroidLanding Twitter account, saying that the account may in fact be reporting on the early deliveries of the device rather than giving out clues to a scavenger hunt. They point specifically to the tweet seen below, which was posted around the same time as the tip from the Texan that received a DROID X early. Another theory is that these devices are shipping early to customers that switched to a DROID X rather than wait for their DROID Incredible order. A call to Verizon about the device yielded nothing new, with the rep saying that a Verizon pre-sale wasn't going to happen and that everyone can buy the DROID X on the 15th release date.
Nowadays it seems inevitable that just about every device will fall into a customer's possession earlier than the official release date. Whether or not the early deliveries of the DROID X are part of a bigger scheme tied in with the @DroidLanding account, this is still great for those of us interested in the device. Now there will be even more first impressions and hands-on to pore over before the official July 15th release. If you pre-ordered a DROID X and got it early, let us know!
