Next month, Verizon (News - Alert) Wireless hopes that Droid X will mark the sweet spot for consumers in the market for a new smartphone.

The wireless operator said Wednesday that it will unleash the Droid X - it's followup to the original DROID smartphone - on July 15. Just like the HTC EVO 4G phone from Sprint (News - Alert), as well as the HTC incredible, the Droid X will cost $200 with a rebate and two-year wireless service contract.
Like the HTC Incredible, Droid X runs Google's (News - Alert) Android software. And like the HTC EVO 4G, its touchscreen interface measures 4.3 inches diagonally and 8-megapixel camera with dual flash can record HD videos. An HDMI port allows the phone to connect to a TV so you can watch content stored on the phone on a bigger screen.

Also included: ultra high-speed Web browsing; a fast 1GHz processor; 3G mobile hotspot capabilities; loads of memory; intuitive social messaging; Adobe Flash Player 10.1 ready and Android (News - Alert) market access.
'Nine months ago, we made a commitment to our customers to bring the openness of Android to the Verizon Wireless network,' said John Stratton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless, in a statement. 'Since then, we have introduced the top-selling Android phone in the marketplace today - the DROID by Motorola (News - Alert). DROID X takes that commitment to another level with exclusive content, faster processing speeds, and, of course, the reliability of our network.'
