    Sometimes doors close while other doors open. While recent industry rumors suggest that we may have lost the Motorola Droid Bionic... on the same day, we get some juicy "in the wild" info and a video of the Motorola Droid X2. Here is a list of the fairly impressive specs:
    • 4.3-inch screen (960 x 540) qHD screen
    • 1.2 GHz Dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
    • Android 2.2 (currently, may ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread)
    • 768MB of RAM
    • 8-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash
    • 720p HD video capture
    • Micro USB
    • Micro HDMI
    • Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass
    • Light and proximity sensors
    This phone looks very similar to the original Droid X, which isn't a bad thing to many... Also, it supposedly has amazing battery life. Furthermore, It achieved a potent Quadrant score of 2453. The video shows that it is still running Froyo, and there is no word on whether it will get Gingerbread on launch or not. This is still a very appealing phone. What do you guys think?

    Very nice. I still love my DX, but the better processor would be a plus. Still won't be upgrading anytime early, and probably won't be using Motorola unless the encrypted bootloaders go the way of the dodo.

    I like those specs! It would be nice if the phone were $199 with a 2 year.

    Yes no LET means no buy for me. Im the same though, I liked the original so a dual core LTE version wouls have nearly been a no brainer.

    I like it as I have an X now and I assume could keep my current dock when I hand the X off to the wife. I do wish it had LTE ONLY so I could get locked into that contract if the unlimited would still be around. I dont have LTE around me yet unless I go into the city so it makes no difference for me yet. Since I get a new phone every year then I might just get this and let LTE get more widespread and jump onto that ship next year.

    I agree! Don't want to deal with on-screen buttons for the cam.

    Very nice, very nice!

    I agree too, the shutter button (while still laggy) does the job and gave the phone a cool red styling on the side.

    Oh well...probably no LTE but I don't think anybody expected that. Still a monster of a 3G device!

    Last night at work a friend whipped out his DX and showed me a picture in his Galley. It was so fast and sure compared to my D1. Now dual core and faster too!

    I honestly don't get the front facing cam. How often would people even use it??

    It's crappy quality and only useful for webchats. And how often do people NEED to webchat? After a few seconds of looking at someone's ugly mug, I could care less about looking at them while I talk. If I DO need to talk, I'll CALL THEM!!

    (Can you tell I don't care about FFCs?!)

    if it wasnt for the camera button missing I would say this was a joke. The OS looks like the early GB release that I had on my Orig DX even the 3G Icon , and honestly I was easily able to overclock my phone 2432 in the old GB rom so the 2500 score really means little considering its a Dual Core Tegra

    Damn too bad moto has to lock down the phone.. I won't have 4g for a while here so couldn't care less about that but with locked bootloader I can't run cm or any aosp rom... too bad cus I love my dx hardware wise I just can't put up with the restrictions of the locked bootloader which means I guess htc is my future. I switched to the dx from d1 in jan and am sick of being frustrated with its limitations.
