Motorola Droid X2 Dual-Core Experience: Screaming Fast

We’ve been keeping our readers informed with developments on the Motorola Droid X2 since we first heard about it and have given a comparison with the Droid Bionic (since delayed), news of the release of the X2 and the Droid 3 becoming closer, and most recently the price and an early release date for the X2. Now we have some news on a hands-on experience, which showed screaming-fast performance from the dual-core processor.

As a brief reminder about what you can expect from this phone, carried by Verizon, it has a 4.3-inch display with qHD resolution, 512MB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1540 mAh battery, all running on the Android 2.2 operating system. If you were a fan of the Droid X the Droid X2 will suitably impress you, especially as the processor has been upgraded to a 1GHZ dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2. The news of the hands-on came to us from Jonathan S. Geller over on BGR who described the Droid X2’s processor as “screaming-fast.”

Geller notes that although launched with Android OS 2.2 the Droid X2 will see a future upgrade to Android 2.3, Gingerbread, which wil please many of you. The UI was noted to be refreshed and those of you who used to be aggravated by the overlay on the original Droid X will appreciate the four static apps on the bottom of each screen. Even though this isn’t one of the latest 4G-capable phones BGR was impressed enough with it to say it was a favorite of theirs and that it was one of the fastest handsets on Verizon Wireless.
