    The Motorola Droid X will be available July 15th for a bargain price of $199.99 after a $100 rebate. According to the Verizon's press conference, they will be accelerating upgrade dates for everyone. If your eligible for an upgrade in 2010, you will have the option to upgrade to the Motorola Droid X at launch and receive the good pricing. The data plan will continue at normal $29.99 rate. To take advantage of the mobile hotspot feature, and the ability to connect (Teather) up to 5 devices, there will be an additional $20 charge.

    I know I'll be line to get one, let us know if you will! dancedroid

    Stratton says the data overage for tethering will be 5 cents a megabyte. "Have all the megabytes you can stand."


    (on top of the $20 for 2gigs of tethering initially, of course)

    I'd cancel and get the X. But that depends upon if you don't mind carrying a rather large device.

    Anyway, the Incredible is discontinued. Have you not heard?

    Even if you dont get the 20$ Hotspot feature, can't you use the apps and (when it comes) the rooted methods to wifi tether for...free?

    If Verizon sticks with the standard data tier, its 5gigs of Tethering. It's not meant for heavy usage, and we tell people that all the time.

    I would imagine the full retail is going to be somewhere in the area of $600-$650 (Incredible is $619).

    The fact that they're allowing upgrades early is going to be a goldmine for stores that can keep these things in stock. (I've been telling my owner for 2 weeks that we better have a pile of these things when they launch).

    I may need to use my family line upgrade to get this. I have the Droid and love it but the No Keyboard, HD Video, faster processor and not to mention Memory is sweet.
