The online stock of Motorola’s Droid X smartphone has reportedly been sold out as Verizon has announced July 23 as the new shipping date for the device on its website. However, Verizon has already shipped the handsets to people who ordered the device early.
Verizon had earlier announced that it had enough Droid X stock to meet the initial demand for the phone and had also promised that there would no shortage of supply. The carrier had maintained that the delay in delivering Droid Incredible handsets to consumers due to supply shortage during the device’s launch would not be repeated in case of the Droid X launch.
However, the status of retail stocks is not clear yet. The long queues of customers that were earlier reported outside retail stores right before the launch, did not seem to be present in certain places.
The high-end Android-based Droid X had already generated huge interest among consumers before its launch, due to its specifications that include a 4.3 inch touchscreen, a TI 1 GHz OMAP processor, an 8 megapixel camera and the capability to function as a mobile hotspot device. The phone is priced at $199.99 along with a two-year contract from Verizon.
