Droid X pre-ordering kicks off today at Best Buy

If you want to be sure that you are among the first to join the next generation of Droid on July 15th then you should hop in your car and head immediately to your nearest Best Buy (breaking only for pedestrians, stop lights, and possibly animals) to slap down $50 and stake your claim on a Droid X to call your own.

I’m guessing you all know the drill at this point; the $50 reserve will be applied to your purchase come launch day and as we heard on Wednesday the Droid X will set you back a total of $199 on a 2-year contract. The main advantage of going with Best Buy is that you really are only charged $199, rather than getting hit for $299 at a Verizon store and having to wait for your $100 mail-in rebate.

Anyone else planning a long lunch to make their way to their local BB?

Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile have truly become the leading destination this summer for all your mobile smartphone needs — from HTC EVO 4G from Sprint to the iPhone 4 on AT&T to the upcoming DROID X on Verizon. Enthusiasts of the Android platform can be the first to reserve a copy of the new Verizon DROID X by Motorola today at Best Buy. The pre-sale begins June 25 and the smartphone will land in stores on July 15.

“With the buzz we’ve seen around the Android platform, Best Buy is confident that consumers will be thrilled about the Verizon DROID X by Motorola pre-sale,” said Scott Anderson, senior director of merchandising at Best Buy Mobile. “It has been a great summer for smartphones with the HTC EVO and iPhone 4 launches, and the addition of the DROID X adds another strong option for our customers to consider.”

The Verizon DROID X by Motorola features Google’s Android 2.1 operating system, 4.3-inch screen and 720P HD video recording and playback. Android 2.2 will arrive to customers on the DROID X later this summer. The DROID X is available at Best Buy for $199.99 with 2-year activation, with no mail-in rebate hassle.
