Verizon Drops Price of the DROID X to $149, Making Way for DROID X2?

It’s that time again, when the once-epic phones of the past near the end of their life while the latest and greatest start to emerge for the demand. The Motorola Droid X has been reduced a whopping $50 on Verizon’s website, making it available for $149 after a 2-year contract. Surely the upcoming release of the DROID X2 has something to do with the sudden price drop of this device. I can’t say the DROID X is really out of its league even to this day, but it wouldn’t dare hold a candle to the DROID X2!

The New Motorola Droid X ME811 Launching in China, Sporting a New 1.2GHz Processor

If your current Motorola Droid X just doesn’t give you the speed that you desire, then you might be interested in a new version of the Droid X which is being released, the ME811. Whereas the specs are exactly the same at the original Droid X, the processor has been bumped up to a 1.2GHz OMAP 3630 processor, so that extra boost in performance is likely to be found in this special model. So the bad news? Well, if you desire such a device you better make plans to get to China, because it’s not looking like any of us anywhere else will be seeing this rare gem.
