1. Motorola Droid X

The Droid X -- released in July as the next generation of Motorola's well-received Droid line -- is a sturdy, more-than-adequate smartphone for casual Android admirers, and for Android lovers, a showpiece: a 4.3-inch display, video capture for 720p video, HDMI output, a 1-Ghz processor, 8 GB of memory, 16-GB microSD card, 8-megapixel camera, no physical keyboard, Swype touch screen typing software, Android 2.2 and 3G Mobile Hotspot connectivity.

The Droid X has been a good story on other levels, too; when technical problems emerged for Droid X following its release, for example, both Verizon and Motorola moved quickly to acknowledge and fix them, without the drama of an Antennagate. And if Motorola plays its cards right, maybe the Droid lines' momentum will propel Droid toward the enterprise, too.
