Joanna Stern of Engadget has a thorough preview of the upcoming Motorola Droid X, and man… does that thing look huge!

As we see smartphones and MIDs continue to become one in the same, smartphones are getting ever larger; good news for the rather large Dell Streak [Portal page]. The Motorola Droid X has a 4.4” screen with an 854×480 resolution, which is nearly an inch larger than the iPhone 4’s 3.5” screen [Portal page]. Here’s a list of unofficial specs for the Droid X:

  • Android 2.1 with a custom Motorola (MotoBlur) interface
  • 4.4” capacitive screen @ 854×480
  • 8 MP camera 720p HD recording capable
  • 1GHz  ARMv7 CPU (Engadget guesses OMAP3630)

Verizon is going to be officially announcing the Droid X on June 23rd (a day before the iPhone 4 goes on sale, what a coincidence!) , so I’m sure we’ll see full specs then. Jump through to Engadget’s article for some videos of the Droid X in action, and check out their galleries:

    This bad boy has a TI OMAP 3630 w/ PowerVR SGX530… no wonder its so fast!! I’m liking the nice screen. Wish it was Super AMOLED, though. http://briefmobile.com/motorola-droid-x

    Wow, first the EVO 4G then this. They are almost identical. It seems that the decision is completely network dependent at this point.

    The iPhone 4 is pretty screwed at this point.
