Droid X Drops July 15

If you haven’t already, it’s probably best to resign yourself to Apple (AAPL) and its new iPhone 4 sucking all the air out of the news cycle this week. That said, there is another big mobile device launch today: Verizon’s (VZ) Droid X.

Uncrated this morning at an event in New York, the new Motorola (MOT) handset is pretty robust specwise, with a 4.3-inch, 854×480 multitouch display, eight megapixel camera, 1GHz TI OMAP processor and 8GB internal storage (plus microSD). It will ship with Google’s (GOOG) Android 2.1 OS and arrive at market on July 15. Price: $199.99 with two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate.
