Breaking: Droid 2 and Droid X will Both Have 1.0GHz Snapdragon Processors
On 06.21.10, In News, by Kellex
The smartphone world freaked out a minute ago when the @Droidlanding Twitter account tweeted its first clue which mentioned that the Droid X actaully has a 1.0GHz Snapdragon processor. We were quick to question it as the rumors have been all about Texas Instruments OMAP processors to this point and to find out for sure, went straight to our sources who have been spot on from day 1.
And the official word? Both the Droid X and Droid 2 will indeed have 1.0GHz Snapdragon processors. Apparently Motorola worked very closely with the chip designers to get as much punch out of them as possible which might explain the ridiculous benchmarks we’ve been seeing.
No idea why the owners of that Twitter account pulled the Snapdragon tweet, but you can expect it to be back up shortly I’m sure.
