Android phones have got a rousing welcome from the international market, since their launch in the recent past, due to the wide range of applications that they offer. One of the most recent smartphones to be launched on the Android platform is the Motorola Droid X. Exclusively distributed by Verizon, this is one of the best Android based phones launched so far.
The Android platform, launched by Google will trigger an open source Linux revolution on the mobile platform. That is the reason for excitement of tech watchers, who are hailing the new mobile OS. What sets android apart, from all the rest of the smartphone operating systems is its large developer base. The power of the open source movement, that has now moved to the mobile platform, is the collaboration effort of thousands of developers who constantly work to improve it. A platform like Android has given developers the freedom to develop and launch many innovative apps. Currently, reports suggest that there are more than 70,000 apps available on the Android platform. These are all Java based applications. With 4.3 inch touch screen, 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, 8 GB of storage, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity, Droid X has the firepower to let you use all these apps.
