Droid x

Can’t wait to get your hands on the next Android superphone - Motorola Droid X? Then you’ll be probably be interested to learn that Best Buy has already begun their pre-orders for the newest addition to the Droid family, which will be arriving in stores on July 15th.

The biggest difference between buying the phone from Best Buy instead of directly from Verizon is simply the bonus of avoiding the mail-in rebate, as Best Buy is selling the phone for $199.99 flat instead of Verizon’s $299.99 with a $100.00 mail-in rebate.

And before you think that you won’t need to pre-order the device, remember: the EVO sold out at launch (in fact, it is still sold out) - and that was on the nation’s third largest carrier. The Droid X is a phone with very similar specs on the largest carrier in the country, so a sellout is certainly a possibility. Read the full press release below.

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.

    Pondering my options for when I get back in the SV in August, any reason to get this one over the EVO 4G ?

      They're just different phones, though with very similar specs, and on a different network, though EVO 4G can do 4G... I'd go play with both, frankly.

      On the preorder thing, I spoke to VZW earlier, they informed me that while they themselves will not be taking preorders, they DO NOT expect inventory issues. It would be a smart move for them to make sure they can fill allot of the demand, especially with what happened to the Incredible. I'll be ordering mine on launch day through customer care, I don't mind getting it a day late as long as I know it is on its way :).

    Thanks, I can live without the faster GPU but could certainly use the 4G speed ;-)

  • webvan
