How does Apple's iPhone 4 compare to Motorola's Droid X and HTC's Droid Incredible, Evo 4G, and Nexus One?
Even as iPhone 4 goes out for delivery, and reservists start lining up at Apple Stores, Motorola, Google, Adobe, and Verizon announced the Droid X, the latest, best Android on the planet.
Our good friend Phil from Android Central was there to live-blog all the news live as it happened, and even now is going hands-on with the Droid X, but we managed to tear the spec-sheet away from him long enough to update our joint fact sheet on all things iPhone 4 vs. Android.
For easy reference, here are the Droid X stats gone solo:
- Huge 4.3", 16:9, 854x480 screen (that's 400,000 pixels)
- HDMI out and DLNA support
- 1GHz TI OMAP processor
- Full Flash 10.1 (not available at launch, waiting on Froyo 2.2)
- 8 gigs on board and a 16gig card included, but compatible with 32gig SD cards for a total potential memory of 40 gigs
- 512mb RAM
- 8 megapixel camera that captures 720p HD video
- Three microphones (outward-facing for video, noise-canceling, and regular)
- a 1570mAh battery, which should be 'comparable to the Droid 1' on battery life
- GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, naturally
- Wi-Fi Hotspot with support for tethering up to 5 devices will also be available for an additional $20 per month with a 2 gig cap.
Good on Android for getting around previous app storage constraints, and for keeping the push on for Wi-Fi Hot Spot. It won't be released until July 15 but announcing now lets them get b-roll on iPhone 4 coverage so, smart. (Though some are playing this off as more competition to the Evo 4G than the iPhone 4).
Anyway you slice it, this is a big Droid. But is it big enough to go one-on-one with iPhone 4 and iOS 4?
