New Droid X Forums Added – Side by Side Comparison with HD2 and EVO

Due to an increase in demand and a huge rise to popularity even before its official release, we have decided to add a forum for discussion and development of the much anticipated Motorola Droid X. The device is so impressive in the hardware department that we simply couldn’t resist as we see a ton of potential for it. The announced release date for this is expected to be July 2, but Verizon Wireless will be making an announcement on June 23 regarding its newest Android additions.

The device itself is Motorola’s answer in the “bigger, better, and faster” game that HTC started playing with the release of the HD2 (and that Apple has been playing since 2007). As it turns out, small screen devices did not cut it anymore for people who wanted to watch their movies, play 3D games without going cross-eyed, or see pictures in high def, so the manufacturers took the next logical step and made everything ridiculously large. Here is a side by side comparison of the 3 top large devices out there running WinMo and Android

HTC HD2 aka Leo (T-Mobile USA Version)

  • Screen: 4.3 inches (WVGA Resolution = 800 x 480)
  • Memory: 1 GB ROM / 576 MB RAM
  • Processor: 1 GHz Snapdragon
  • Camera: 5 megapixels with dual LED flash and autofocus
  • Connectivity: HSPA/WCDMA, Wifi (N available with hack), BT 2.1
  • OS: WM 6.5 Build 21889 (Stock)
  • Other: G-Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Light Sensor, GPS, Compass

HTC EVO 4G aka Supersonic (Sprint Version)

  • Screen: 4.3 inches (WVGA Resolution = 800 x 480)
  • Memory: 512 MB RAM / 1 GB of Storage
  • Processor: 1 GHz Snapdragon
  • Camera: Front 1.3 megapixel CMOS camera for video conferencing, 8 megapixel back camera with dual LED flash and autofocus, can shoot 720p video
  • Connectivity: 4G/WiMax, Wifi, BT 2.1
  • OS: Android 2.1 (Stock)
  • Other: Kick Stand, G-Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Light Sensor, GPS, Compass, HDMI Connector

Motorola Droid X

  • Screen: 4.3 inch (FWVGA Resolution = 854 x 480)
  • Memory: 8 GB Storage (rumors of  a 16 GB version are floating around but not confirmed)
  • Processor: 1 GHz ARMv7
  • Camera: 8 megapixel back camera, can shoot 720p video
  • Connectivity: 3G/CDMA, Wifi, BT 2.1
  • OS: Android 2.1 with Motoblur (rumors of Android 2.2 are floating around but nothing has been confirmed as of yet)
  • Other: Multitouch keyboard, HDMI Connector

Not an awful lot of information has been made available yet, but the device seems rather promising. In fact, the multitouch keyboard might open the doors for a whole new generation of input apps for Android (as well as for Windows Mobile). Has this picked your interest yet? If so, you can hop over to the new forums and add your two cents, share some specs or information, or simply speculate like the rest of us.

You can find the new forums here.
