Motorola Droid X sequel to use Bionic's Blur UI

Motorola's sequel to the Droid X has been spotted and detailed ahead of release. Commonly thought of as the X2 or by its Daytona codename, the phone is cosmetically very similar to the original Droid X, including the 3G-only cellular data and eight-megapixel camera. It should upgrade to the same dual-core Tegra 2 chip and 540x960 screen as the Droid Bionic, however, and was seen on The Mobi Zone using the same new Blur interface.

Other changes aren't as definite but should include a gyroscope for better motion-aware apps as well as special docks, although it's unlikely the Atrix 4G's notebook dock will get a Droid X equivalent. A tease has emerged of significant "non phone features, but what those might be wasn't said.

When it would ship to Verizon isn't certain, but the 3G suggests Motorola won't wait long as it would likely want to establish the Droid X as a Bionic for those who don't have coverage for or don't care for LTE-based 4G.

Teases have also emerged for the Droid 3, though these are tentative. It may also get the Tegra 2 but could ship later with Android 2.4 preloaded. A better keyboard would be present, but Motorola may decide against using its custom Blur interface as it hasn't been shown to black_man_x, a historically reliable source of inside Verizon info.
