An image along with a few details of the Motorola Droid X has been posted by Verizon Wireless, which is its successor to 2009's popular Motorola Droid smartphone. The device will have a 4.3-inch screen and it will allow HDMI output.
According to an invitation sent to eWEEK, the next generation of Droid" in New York will be introduced by the executives from Verizon, Motorola and Google on June 23. It has not been made public that whether the device showcased will be the Droid X.
Images shown do not clarify whether any changes have been done to the Droid's sliding QWERTY keyboard.
On June 15, Engadget said, “Apparently the Droid X has a 4.3-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution screen. We confirmed that the Droid X was running Android 2.1 with some new sort of Motoblur (perhaps Ninjablur) skin”.
Other features include an 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p video and a 1GHz ARMv7 processor. Engadget said, ”If specs on the model we saw are correct, the phone will come with 8GB of storage space”.
To promote the use of Flash on smartphones, Adobe Systems CEO Shantanu Narayen will also make an appearance in the event.
Apple has banned Flash from its mobile devices, which has led Adobe to indulge in a heated battle with Apple. Apple's iPhone 4 is scheduled for general release on June 24 and it is a not a coincidence that the next-generation Droid will be released a day after.
