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.

Android 3 is Googles first own version of Android, and they have huge problem getting it to work. 3.0 on tablets is a disaster. Crashes, slow, no apps.

Can you give me some examples because I've had almost no issues with my Xoom.

Or is it just some internet scuttlebutt you felt regurgitating?

Well, as you say that you've had "almost no issues", doesn't that mean that you have had some, so maybe you can provide yourself with examples? :op

N.B. This comment does not mean that I support the comment to which that were replying to. I think you're second sentence is probably true.

When I first tried out a Xoom, I tried to boot up the camera App in store. It launched and then crashed within 2 seconds with some gobbledegook error message. Some of the Apps worked ok, but why you would want to beta test it using your own money for Motorola and Google is beyond me? Bottom line is that whilst I was initially excited to be using the Xoom, I left very underwhelmed and then bought an iPad 2 instead.
