    Some newly leaked info from industry insiders details some of the newer features of what may be the 'sequel' to the Motorola Droid X. It's possible it is Motorola's phone codenamed, "Daytona", and it has some cool new specs. Here you are:
    • Larger 4.3" touch screen, and the screen will be denser, for improved display quality and a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels
    • Dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor from NVIDIA
    • Probably Android 2.2 (Froyo), but Motorola may have plans to support Android 2.3 or 3.0 in the future.
    • DLNA streaming
    • HDMI output
    • 720p movie capture mode
    • 8MP camera designed to be snappier than the original DROID X
    No clue as to whether it will be LTE capable or not, but as more details filter out we will 'keep you in the know'.

    I'm really curious to see what specs the Droid 3 is going to have.

    I don't know about you guys, but that sounds exactly like the Bionic to me.

    Bionic is an LTE handset with no physical keys and has a FFC (no word on DX2 w/ FFC)

    I am hoping the X2 will have a front facing camera.

    you and me, both! i've said it several times before (cross-posting alert), i'm hoping for: a bigger screen (close to 4"); T3 processor (D3/T3 has a nice ring to it, don't ya think?); ffc; LTE; and a touch/capacitive pkb (not a mechanical pkb).

    my guess is that the DX2 is mainly to tide people over until LTE is more fully developed and more widely available. but since the specs are so similar to the Bionic, i'm betting that the DX2 won't be around for long (unless the Bionic just fails miserably, which i don't see happening).

    ^^^ This!


    Gonna make sure my D1 makes it long enough so I can skip right over getting a D2 as a replacement.

    If that is all they have, then I will stay on my DX and wait for something very much better, front facing camera and 4.5" screen. Mature eyes desire the bigger screen. The half inch from the Droid to Droid X made a big difference, especially using the GPS.

    Christ, I don't think I could handle any more "leaked" info on new phones. I already change what phone I want everytime a new post comes up and at this rate I'll never get a new one >< I suppose the D1 will hold me until it reaches its software EOL, or until any of these "OMG I GOTTA HAVE IT" phones hits the streets and works its kinks out. All this beautiful new tech is such a mixed blessing, lol.

    "Bigger 4.3' screen"??
    The Drid X already has a 4.3" screen. At least that's what the specs page says on the Motorola Mobility site.
    Basically this is the same thing they did with the Droid 2. No real significant changes. Maybe a DX global is in the works, and that is where the real changes will appear.
