    Here's another few Motorola X Phone rumors for you guys this morning. A couple of them are about as "iffy" as yesterday's story, but one of them seems to track with previous rumors. An "unnamed" tipster shared some supposed details about the device. First, the tipster claims the ROM for a device he previewed showed "X" as the device type. Here are the specs he shared for the device,
    • 4.8-inch (1280x720 resolution) display
    • Android 4.2.2
    • 2GB of RAM
    The tipster didn't include anything about the processor but claims it benchmarks around the same speed as the Samsung Galaxy S3 in AnTuTu benchmarks. That is pretty lackluster to say the least, but it could simply be alpha hardware.

    Another interesting tidbit the "source" shared is that the device will be coming to Verizon first, although no details from this source suggest any other carriers. The next tidbit the tipster shared is the device will come in two different variants. It will supposedly have an X Edition version and an X M Model, suggesting a mini version of the device. This somewhat tracks with our previous report suggesting the X Phone will be a new "series" of devices.

    Finally, one other thing the tipster shared is a new feature will be introduced with this device called "Droid Blast." Here's a quote with a description,

    Obviously, as always take any of these "rumors" with a generous helping of salt. Until something is actually confirmed by someone from Google or simply a highly reputable source, nearly anything is possible. Let's cross our fingers Google will share the scoop with us at Google I/O in a week.

    Official Verizon "DROID" name is always in full capital letters, secondly it would have to be a Verizon only feature to be named "DROID."

    However, they got the Motorola debugging icons right so I'm on the fence on it. If the Ecks Fone's greatest feature is a new sharing service, that's pretty meh.

    ^^ This. I was skeptical of this story as soon as I saw it too, but I figured some of the intel was still worth reporting.

    Seriously, are we getting so lazy that email is too much trouble when you can just send something via a gesture?

    LOL. You make a great point kodiak. Perhaps one day there won't be any real difference between technology and instantaneous telepathic communication. :)

    I already use ITC (instantaneous telepathic communication). I just have a phone so I can blend in with the mortals. I can tell what you're thinking.....and it's not nice.:icon_eek:

    You read my mind.

    If it's not HD it might as well be a newspaper.
