Motorola Droid X A Hit With Business Users

Motorola's newly unveiled Android-based Droid X smartphone could revolutionise the way businesses use mobile multimedia content, partner companies have declared.

The phone, due to be launched on 15 July, will be able to run Adobe Flash 10.1, which allows users to run enterprise-level multimedia applications, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen has claimed.

The smartphone also comes with a 4.3 inch screen, 1GHz processor and 8-megapixel camera.

John Stratton, chief marketing officer of wireless carrier Verizon, explained that the phone comes packed with business-focused features.

According to Stratton, the smartphone can be turned into a Wi-Fi hot spot for up to five users at a cost of $20 each month on top of the $30 per month cost for a fast EVDO mobile broadband dataplan, and a minimum voice plan of $40

Motorola has said that yet more enterprise-targeted features will be available on the Droid X when it receives Google's Android 2.2 Froyo update. These include support for Gmail and Exchange, push e-mail and a global corporate directory.
