Techopedia explains Motorola Droid X

The Droid comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which can be used for entering numbers and text. However, interaction with the device is done using a capacitive touch screen display. This 3.7 inch screen also accepts multi-touch gestures. It is easily recognizable in images around the Web through its glowing red cyclops eye.

Among the sea of Android mobile phones, the Droid is a standout. About 1.05 million Droid units were sold in the first 74 days following its launch in 2009. This number even beat the original iPhone over the same period. Some of its key features include high-speed mobile browsing, the ability to run multiple apps simultaneously and Google search by voice. Another outstanding feature is its 5 mega pixel camera, which can capture both images and DVD-quality videos and operate in low-light conditions.

Because it runs on the Android Platform, developers who are interested in writing apps for this phone can use the downloadable Android software development kit. Apps can be obtained from and sold through the Android Market, which is an online store built by Google.

Just like most Android phones, the Droid can be rooted. That is, it can be hacked to install customized software and to provide root access via a terminal emulator.
