Motorola Droid X2 Pegged For May 26 Release?

A rumor last week had Motorola’s Droid X² scheduled for release today. That’s one rumor that’s definitely fizzled, but with the arrival of Droid X² dummy units at retail stores, we’ve still been thinking that a release would be soon to pass. New leaked documents now suggest that retails sales of the Motorola smartphone will commence on May 26.

While you’ll have to wait until the end of the month to get the phone in stores, there’s a chance that Verizon might open up pre-orders in advance (we haven’t heard of any such plans), in which case the X² could start shipping out to customers on May 19, likely arriving several days before the retail launch.

The specs we came across for the X² paint the picture of a powerful dual-core handset, but one that will ship running Android 2.2. The images of the phone included in the leaked launch documents show what looks like it could be Gingerbread running on the smartphone, but that could just be the effect of the phone’s MotoBLUR UI. If the X² does come out with Froyo as expected, we can almost assuredly plan to see an update arrive this summer, if not sooner.
