Droid X Hit Verizon Stores

The new Droid family, Droid X, hit Verizon Wireless stores on Thursday. So, those of you iPhone hater, here is your chance to switch.

The Droid X is Motorola’s latest Google Android device, featuring a 4.3-inch screen, 8-megapixel camera, HDMI out put and more (check out our hands-on look at the Droid X video and photo capabilities).

The Droid X looks like it is shipped with Android 2.1, but both Android 2.2.

The phone will be available for $199 after a $100 mail-in-rebate and a new, two-year contract. I would guess, it will cost around $500 without the contract.

    It’s fascinating to watch how form factors on touch mobile computing device screens are INCREASING in size (Droid X and HTC Evo), improving user experience and making it easier to type. Meanwhile, laptop and netbook screens are DECREASING in size, approaching the sweet size of the iPad. But both EVO and Droix X offer an HDMI output to a hid-def TV set.

    Could it be we’re moving into a 3G/4G wireless world where “mobile”–that’s “portable”–devices are easily moved from place to place while TV’s will become dumb terminals.
