The next Droid from Motorola, the Droid X, should get its official outing at a press event in New York today. According to invitations sent to journalists, the event is scheduled to take place at 12 p.m. Eastern time.
John Stratton, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Verizon Wireless, is due to be joined by other executives from the industry. Sanjay Jha, co-CEO of Motorola, will be on hand, as well as Andy Rubin, vice president of engineering for Google, and Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe.
While complete specs for the device are unknown, the company has been running a teaser campaign that features a device with a 4.3-inch screen and HDMI output. Judging by available photos of the phone, it appears to be in line with the HTC Evo 4G from Sprint.
The Motorola event comes just one day prior to what was supposed to be the official launch of the iPhone 4 on June 24. Due to a series of delays due to high demand, the iPhone 4 is now on backorder and won’t be available until June 29 through AT&T, while Apple is promising delivery of orders by mid-July. However, those who successfully pre-ordered the phone started getting their devices yesterday.
