Verizon scrambles to meet demand as Motorola Droid X sells out

Posted by Trent Nouveau

Motorola's Droid X is currently in short supply across the continental United States.  
Android enthusiasts hoping to snag the sleek smartphone via Verizon's online store will now have to wait until at least July 23 for the device to ship.

"This has been a very good day one for Droid X sales. Customers were in line at midnight in some markets, in other places there were lines when the stores opened and in other stores there has been a steady stream of customers," Verizon confirmed in an official statement obtained by Android Central.

Verizon scrambles to meet demand as Droid X sells out"We have been successful at keeping up with early demand but at present inventory in some parts of the country inventory is either low or out...It truly varies around the country.

"Since we have weekly shipments planned, customers can still order phones and can expect them to be shipped on or before July 23."

Motorola's supercharged Droid X features a 4.3-inch high-res display, 1GHz processor, 8 GB of onboard Flash memory, a 16GB MicroSD card and 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities.



The Droid X also boasts an 8-megapixel camera, 720p HD camcorder, as well as DLNA and HDMI connectivity to download, stream and share personal HD content.
