On Wednesday today, Motorola introduced the Droid X, the company’s response to the Apple iPhone 4. On Thursday, the iPhone 4 goes on sale.
The move comes as all three companies try to keep pace in the intensely competitive smartphone market, which this week will see Apple Inc roll out its much-anticipated iPhone 4 on five continents.
Verizon Wireless, the biggest U.S. mobile provider, said the Droid X phone will go on sale July 15 for $199.99 after a $100 rebate to customers signing a two-year contract. Check out new prices and buy it from Amazon.
The Droid X has a 4.3 inch touch-screen and an 8 megapixel camera, according to Verizon Wireless, which already depends on Motorola’s Android phone as a key weapon in competing against AT&T Inc, the exclusive U.S. provider for iPhone.
