First impressions and pics of the Motorola DROID X

The Motorola DROID X may be launching at Verizon stores across the the country tomorrow morning, but we thought you might be interested in some pictures of the phone and our first impressions. We can definitely say that the DROID X is one of the best Android options from Verizon and the fastest phone from Motorola to date.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of phones with extra large screens. My main complaint about the EVO 4G was the size and I was a bit taken aback when I heard that the DROID X was even larger. However, the sharp angles on the DROID X actually make the phone feel smaller in the hand than the HTC EVO 4G.

The custom UI on the DROID X is actually quite impressive. Most Android fans have pretty harsh words for Motorola’s MotoBLUR, but we’re pretty sure that those who spend a few minutes with the DROID X will walk away with a smile on their face. The phone still has all the social integration features found on other Motorola phones, but the UI has been toned down a little, making it less intrusive. One of the coolest features is the ability to re-size the majority of Motorola’s widgets so that you can customize your home screen to the way to really want it.

We will be playing around with the DROID X quite a bit over the next few days, so be sure to check back in. A full review, benchmark breakdown, and a few other posts will be coming soon, but if you’ve already made up your mind on the DROID X, don’t forget that you can pick it up from our online store after midnight.
