Earlier this morning we had reports coming in that Verizon jumped the gun and began selling the new Motorola Droid X2 online ahead of schedule. That looks to be official now, as you can get the phone at VZW online for $199.99 on-contract, and even better than that... Amazon and WireFly have the phone for $149.99. Each of those prices with Amazon or WireFly is for a new or upgrade 2-year contract! And, all of them have free shipping too.

To help you make a decision, here are the specs again, just in case you may want to hold out for something different. Here's the good stuff:

Dual-core 1GHz processor
4.3" qHD display
8MP camera with 720p recording (no 1080p)
HDMI with mirror capabilities
802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
DLNA
8GB internal memory
8GB microSD

Here's where it may lack a bit, depending on your point of view:

No 4G LTE
No Front-facing camera
No QWERTY Keyboard (despite what VZW's own website says)
No Gingerbread (Froyo 2.2)

If the issues above don't matter to you, then here are some links below for you to nab one ASAP!

So its a DX1 with a slightly higher res screen, HDMI functionality that we should of had from the start, and a faster processor that really isnt that noticeable. Is that really what they have been working on over at Moto. Its like upgrading the processor in my desktop and giving me a new monitor and a smaller HD, and then telling me its a new computer.

Can't believe it shipped with froyo... what were they thinking?

DX- modded as far as it can be.
Xoom- waiting on official SD update.

Q - do we know if these are rootable? idk enough about the underlying things that would tell me w/o asking...

I'd expect the bootloader is locked, as moto likes that for some reason, and despite froyo I assume there's no sbf yet either
