Motorola Droid X 2 leak shows firm May 26 date

Motorola's Droid X 2 has seen what should be its final ship date commitment after a leaked staff memo settled on its release date. The phone is now due to reach retail stores by May 26 with early orders starting on May 19. Droid-Life's copy of the note also confirmed that it would ship with Android 2.3 out of the box along with the new version of Motorola's Blur UI that was first seen on the Droid Bionic prototype.

The X 2 was already known to be Motorola's first dual-core phone for Verizon following the Bionic's overhaul. It should carry a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip capable of 1080p video and a much sharper, 540x960 4.3-inch screen. Verizon notes the X 2's eight-megapixel camera isn't any higher in resolution, but the memo touts it as 44 percent faster than the sensor on the original Droid X, albeit still limited to 720p video.

Storage should also go up with both 8GB of permanent storage and a pre-loaded 8GB microSDHC card.

Pricing is still an unknown, but the phone's limitation to 3G will likely put the price at $200 on contract.
