Motorola Droid X Android launches with HD video

iPhone 4 challenging Android mark two set for US release in July

The Android-powered Motorola Droid X has been unveiled in the US. The follow-up to the hugely popular Droid (or Milestone as its known over here) is set for a US release on July 15.

The Droid X boasts an HDMI output, 4.3-inch display and 720p video capture. The device is fired by a 1GHz processor, running Android 2.1 until 2.2 FroYo lands in the “latter half of the summer”, and has an impressive 8-megapixel HD camera, as Motorola look to keep up with HTC's Evo beast.

"This is not a toy or app engine," said Google chief Eric Schmidt of the Android OS used in the Droid X. "It is a powerful kind of operating system. What is happening now is that people are thinking mobile first instead of desktop first."

Android 2.2 FroYo is just around the corner, and with its Flash support really turning up the heat on the iPhone 4, we can’t wait to get our hands on a Droid X (or Milestone 2) to see if it can really put Apple’s offering to the sword.

For the time being, those lucky chaps over the pond look to have all the luck though, as no UK availability for the Droid X as a Milestone smartphone has been announced yet. We’ll keep you posted.
