It's big, it's bold, it'll handle Flash (eventually) and it's got a cool-sounding name. Set to land next month, Verizon is clearly hoping to give the iPhone a run for its money with Motorola's eye-catching, Android-powered Droid X.
Verizon Wireless officials — accompanied by the CEOs of Google, Motorola and Flash developer Adobe — unveiled the long-rumored Droid X at a press event in New York on Wednesday, a day before the iPhone 4 goes on sale.
Boasting a 4.3-inch display, the same size as the jumbo HTC Evo 4G screen, the X will debut July 15 for $199 with a new two-year contract (after a $100 mail-in rebate). Unlimited data plans will go for the typical $30 a month, with voice plans starting at $40 a month.
