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.

Yep. Couldn't have said it better myself. There's a reason why CyanogenMod is the number 1 third party ROM.

Huge kudos to all of those devs on the CM team (and any ROM in general). I don't know when some of them even find time to sleep with as fast as they push out updates. I know one of the CM team devs has 6 kids and he still finds time to code.

Honestly, companies like HTC, Motorola, and Samsung should be ashamed of themselves when it comes to their incredibly mediocre updating.

Don't the careers have to take a fairly big chunk of the responsibility for the delays in updates? Or is that all a thing of the past now?
