The tech world is hyperventilating today over Google's and Verizon Wireless' big reveal of an official website for the Motorola Droid X, which isn't at some viral hole-in-the-wall URL, but is located on Verizon Wireless' website. Motorola, Google, Verizon Wireless, and Adobe haven't yet put out an official press statement announcing the phone's launch or detailing its specs, so the smartphone is still shrouded in mystery; it is expected to be revealed at a press-only event on June 23rd.
As pumped as Android fans are about the Droid X, which has all the makings of the next flagship Android phone, there's one detail on the website which seems too good to be true to some: If you roll over the picture of the Droid X on the site, you'll see the above display, which promises a 720p screen.
Update: This must have been a mistake. The screen has been changed.
This isn't just an HD screen; it would, by some metrics, make the Droid X a stronger phone for viewing visual content than the iPhone 4, with the so-called "retina display" that Steve Jobs somewhat dubiously claimed made it sharper than the human eye could perceive.
Is this a game changer, or will the Droid X deliver less than it seems?
