>> Hi everyone, I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com and I'm here with your first look at the Motorola Droid X for Verizon. This is the carrier's newest Droid device and I'm gonna walk you through the design really quick. On front you've got a 4.3 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen. Looks really gorgeous. It's running a revised version of MOTOBLUR so it's not quite like the CLIQ or anything like that. It's very subdued which I like a lot better. Below the screen you've got 4 hard buttons. You've got the Menu button, the Home key, Back and Search. On the side here we've got the Micro USB port as well as a HDMI port so you will be able to hook it up to an HDTV and watch video as well as your photos. Speaking of photos, it has a 8 megapixel camera and can record 720p video so it's HD video. There is no front-facing camera but Motorola has said they will come out with other devices with front-facing cameras later on. Here on the left side there's a volume rocker and also a dedicated camera key. And finally, on top we've got a power button and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack. Now as far as software, like I said it's running MOTOBLUR. It's gonna launch with Android 2.1 but Android 2.2 Froyo will be coming to the Droid X as well as the Droid later this summer, and this will also bring the Flash10 capabilities for the phone. Other things on here, all the wireless options, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, as well as Wi-Fi, and you can use the Droid X as a mobile hotspot for up to 5 devices, but that will run you an additional $20 a month on top of the $30 data plan, just FYI. And multimedia's gonna be huge on this so they are launching with a dedicated Blockbuster App a lot like the HD2 so you can rent and buy movies from the phone. It'll also have VCAST Video as well as NFL Mobile and all other Verizon services. The Droid X will be available starting July 15th for $199.99 with a two-year contract and after $100 rebate, and it will also be available at other retail outlets. I'm Bonnie Cha, and this has been your first look at the Motorola Droid X for Verizon.

Motorola Droid X (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: The Motorola Droid X boasts a gorgeous 4.3-inch touch screen and great multimedia features like an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture, HDMI output, and DLNA support. The smartphone can also be used as a mobile hot spot.
The bad: Camera is a bit sluggish. Motoblur software is a lot better but still not quite as refined as HTC Sense. Lacks a front-facing camera.
The bottom line: The Motorola Droid X makes another fine addition to Verizon's Android family, bringing with it a rich multimedia experience and more connectivity features.
