Verizon Teases Droid X, Big Reveal Next Week?

Verizon confirmed the existence of Droid X, the next Motorola-made, Android-running member of the Droid family, with a new spotlight section on its Web site.

Verizon's site includes an image of Droid X, an e-mail prompt where users can sign up to receive Droid X details, and the tagline "The Next Generation of Droid: Droid Does." Flanked by images of the Motorola Droid and the HTC Droid Incredible, Droid X is listed as "coming soon."

According to the Verizon site, Droid X has a 4.3-inch display, video capture for 720p video and HDMI output. That's all Verizon's saying officially, although for months, rumors have circulated that the new Droid will be running Google Android 2.2, have at least 8 GB of internal storage, include an 8-megapixel camera to rival the one seen on the HTC Droid Incredible, and sport a 1GHz processor.

Pictures of an alleged Droid X also have been circulating this week thanks to Engadget, which claims to have obtained a Droid X. According to Engadget's rundown on the phone, Droid X also has a Swype virtual-typing function, multitouch typing and no physical keyboard.

Engadget added that the Droid X appeared to be running Android 2.1 with a different version of Motoblur, Motorola's mobile social networking interface.

Verizon Wireless has scheduled a media event for next Wednesday, June 23, in which it seems likely Droid X will see its official reveal. The timing for Verizon seems too fitting for coincidence: June 24 is the day when Apple's iPhone 4 officially arrives.
