X2 is the first dual-core 1GHz Android smartphone on the Verizon network

Motorola has made a big comeback thanks to Google’s Android operating system. The latest offering from Motorola is heading to the Verizon network very soon and it is an impressive device.

The smartphone is the Motorola Droid X2 and it will be available online starting tomorrow. It will land in stores to purchase on May 26. The smartphone will cost $199.99 with a new 2-year agreement and the purchase of a compatible data plan. The X2 has a bunch of very nice features.

It will be the first dual-core 1GHz smartphone to operate on the Verizon network. It also has a 4.3-inch qHD screen that is covered by Gorilla Glass. The X2 will be powered by Android 2.2 at launch and will later get an update to Android 2.3. The phone has an 8-megapixel rear camera and can record HD video.

Other features include a mirror mode for sharing photos and other content on a big screen TV. The device supports enterprise security policies and has support for all the Google services expected of an Android smartphone. The Droid X2 can also act as a mobile hotspot for sharing the 3G connection with up to five other devices.

The required voice plan will cost $39.99 monthly and the unlimited data plan will cost $29.99 monthly.

You will get 2 hours of phone time with 4G + Android out of the box.
It took 3G 5 years before there where phones that had 1 day battery time.

BTW. 3G is up to 21megabit, what are you going to do with the phone? Downloading torrents? Only reason for 50+megabit bandwidth is to download stuff.

21 over HSPA+ is only theoretical. Most get 3-5. Current review testing puts Verizon's LTE at ~18Mbs down, 5Mbs up.

2 hours? At least give people the truth. Even stock I was getting between 6-8 hours with 4G. Now with Das Bamf 1.6.3 I'm at 14+ hours with heavy usage.

Getting good battery life isn't hard.

I have my Tbolt updating my podcasts all day long. My first bill said I downloaded 8GB of data. I love unlimited 4G data plan
