The Motorola Droid X2 is rumored to be released soon, on May 26 and to back that up, Motorola's website is now featuring a product support page for the smartphone. As far as pricing is concerned, we heard it will go for $199.99 on contract but how much will it cost without one? According to the image above, snapped of a Walmart inventory label, the Motorola Droid X2 will cost as much as the HTC Incredible II without a contract: $600. That's $30 more expensive than what you will pay for the Samsung Droid Charge at a $569.99 full retail price, but we're talking dual-core here, and not just ...

We're getting very close to the release date of the Droid X2 (or, more properly known as the "Droid X2"), which should appease those looking to pick up Motorola's latest Android phone on Verizon, which will sport a 1.2GHz Tegra 2 CPU with 768MB of RAM, plus a 4.3" qHD 960x540 display with HDMI output. According to a Verizon internal listing, the Droid X2 will be in stores in May 26 with fulfillments beginning as early as May 19. What's more, the complete user manual for the phone has been leaked--hit the Droid-Life source link below to download the full PDF. Source: AndroidCentral, Droid-Life

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 ...

We recently got a look at the full spec run-down for Motorola's Droid X², rocking a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 and equipped with a big 4.3-inch qHD display. This smartphone's been on the cusp of release lately, showing up in Best Buy's computers and mos recently getting a rumored release date of tomorrow, May 12. There's yet to be any confirmation of that claim, though it's looking very possible now, with Costco getting some dummy units ready for its in-store displays. Like the Trophy dummy units we got to see yesterday, the mere presence of these props doesn't necessarily mean an imminent ...

There isn't much mystery left to Verizon's upcoming Motorola Droid X2 -- a.k.a. Daytona and MB870 -- and now an official spec sheet has appeared to fill in whatever blanks remained. As rumored, the X2 (that's X-squared) is a 4.3-inch, 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2-powered device with qHD resolution and eight-megapixel camera, currently running Android 2.2 Froyo but probably shipping with 2.3 Gingerbread. Apparently the RAM/ROM configuration will remain identical to the original Droid X at 512MB/8GB, although the Tegra 2 chipset enables higher-quality video playback (1080p over HDMI) as well as ...

May 12 is the day to watch for and circle in your Calendar if the information acquired by Droid-life is accurate. Apparently, Motorola Droid X^2, LG Revolution and HTC Trophy will all see the light of day next Tuesday while you'll have to wait for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play some three more weeks. Both the HTC Trophy and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play have been listed online at Verizon and the catalog now also features the LG Revolution. All of these display a "coming soon" tag. The Motorola Droid X Squared is yet to appear online. So here are the possible dates: May 12 for Motorola Droid ...

Australian Motorola Atrix 4G owner Irwin Proud quickly discovered that it's bootloader was locked after his purchase of the device earlier this year. In response, he formed a "Groubal" page to attempt to get the attention of Motorola and convince it that there is a large subset of users who wish to develop for the Atrix and cannot due to the immutable security. The Groubal page has grown quickly, currently at over 8800 signatures since it's inception on March 31st. Motorola has since taken notice, and has issued a response: "...It is our intention to enable the unlockable/relockable ...

Motorola Droid X successor Droid X^2 has been making appearances on the internet from months now and there's not much that we do not know about this particular device. As the leaked press shots have already revealed, the Droid X^2 will look almost identical to its predecessor and will feature the same shape and design that it has inherited from the original Droid X. We know plenty about this new and unannounced smartphone so we have decided to compare it with the device it will end up replacing, i.e the Droid X. Motorola Droid X (left) and Droid X^2 (right) feature identical physical ...

The Motorola Droid X2 will be the follow-up to the Droid X and so far specs are put together like pieces of a puzzle from various information from the Internet, like the NenaMark database that lists a couple of features. Upon being benchmarked, the Droid X2 appeared to be featuring an nVidia Tegra chip and we were pretty sure it was the dual-core Tegra2. Thanks to the video below showing off the boot procedure on the Droid X2, we get a confirmation from Motorola itself as the display reads "Dual Core Technology". At least we've got that one out of the way, now we need the price and launch ...

We've heard of initial rumors around Motorola Droid X2 with qHD screen and Tegra2 SOC since January but just recently the device popped up on NenaMark's page with information related to CPU, resolution as well as carrier. NenaMark is an Android benchmark for hardware accelerated graphics and that's where the Droid X2 -- previously pictured -- showed up flashing part of its identity. It will come as no surprise that it is Verizon branded and if previously we hinted towards a qHD display, we get the confirmation from NenaMark. Additionally, the smartphone used to take shots surfacing on ...

Not that we didn't see pictures of the Motorola Droid X2 before but it's always nice to have some more, maybe different angles, clearer snapshots, you know what we mean! AndroidCentral has got a cuple of them starring the Motorola Droid X follow-up that showed up recently on NenaMark. At a first glance, it's not much different than last year's model. Added are Android 2.2.2 Froyo -- which we hope will be replaced by Gingerbread once the device is out -- and an HDMI port next to the microUSB. In addition, there's an eight-megapixel camera but the general outline, buttons and even the back ...

So, there's not much mystery left to the Motorola Droid X successor, known up until now as the Droid X2 or Droid X 2. Not only has it been seen numerous times in the wild (both photos and videos), but it actually looks almost identical to the device it will end up replacing -- so much so that they're probably fabricating its external enclosure using the same parts (which hopefully translates to reduced retail pricing). So besides hinting that a launch/release are near, the appearance of these press shots tells us one important thing: the name of the phone. Not visible in previous shots of ...
