Video review of Motorola's Droid X for Verizon

July 12, 2010 | 11:02 am

Motorola's next smart-phone based on Google's Android software is a big one. Literally.

The Droid X, with its large 4.3-inch touchscreen, goes on sale at Verizon Wireless stores on Thursday and costs $200 with a mail-in rebate and a two-year contract.

As Apple and AT&T prepare to make what's looking like a major marketing push for the iPhone 4 (centered around its video calling feature), Verizon is expected to ramp up its own advertising blitz as it's done for previous Android products by Motorola and HTC.

Though the Droid X is exclusive to Verizon Wireless, Android phones are available on every carrier. In a four-month span from February to the end of May, Android was the only smart-phone operating system to gain market share, according to research firm ComScore. It landed in fourth place, ready to overtake Microsoft's Windows Mobile, the report said.
